    If you can't make out the whispers then I mixed it just right! And the song is called Piano Bench because it's reflecting on an interaction that involved a piano bench being thrown across the room (which out of context sounds like a *way* worse situation than it actually was).

    thanks for your comment on "Writer's Block" The song is for a musical I am trying to draft this month about a small town band. Its my first attempt at a musical!

    Thanks for the encouragement to revisit lyrics for "End of the Line." The organ is a B3 emulation, setBFree (http://setbfree.org/)

    Hey! I was really touched you mentioned Edison on the recommendations thread. I really genuinely like what I’ve heard of your stuff as well. Are you at all interested in doing a collaboration?

    Thanks for the compliment for Kalesi! It was a rough one to put together so I'm happy you like it 😀 Keep up the good work yourself.

    No worries, elesimo! These kinds of collabs are always full of surprises, and rolling with them is part of the fun.

    (and thanks for the stickers, nice touch, good thought)

    I just wanted to check. It sounds super dark and a little weird on “normal” speed. But I wanted to check with you and not make any assumptions!

    So whoever gets it next will have to have the high-speed option, which will not be a problem, I think.

  • @standup  2 weeks

    Hey there! I got a cassette in the mail from you. Listening now.

    Was it recorded at high speed? I can do either, and it sounds better at high speed I think.

    If it is actually a high-speed recording we'll just have to pass it on to someone else who has a high-speed deck

    Interesting idea. I'm more inclined to the additive, than the subtractive method myself, but it'll be interesting to see how it works. Have a good fawm too, I'll look forward to hearing your black midi music, don't forget the hashtag.

  • @francessmith 2 weeks

    Hello, I played with the idea of creating a midi instrumental using loads of notes today. No piano though. My maximum was 745 in one bar, so I didn't get anywhere near a million. It was interesting. The method I used was closer to the patterns of minimalist music, rather than random chaos. Listening to a few black midi tracks, that seems to be what they do too. I can't post that for fawm, it was a day too early, but I might try another one.

    On the subject of black midis and infinite piano - I just found out my 12 year old non-verbal autistic son is a long time fan of both - and watches infinite piano videos on his ipad constantly. I didn't know what he was watching - now you've educated me and it's given me another way to communicate with him. Thank you! 😀 😀 😀 😀

    Hey there! Just listened to your song Story and it is really beautiful!! Happy FAWM!

  • @brrrse  3 weeks

    Now you're gonna make me plug in the linux box - I shoved it in the corner and threw a blanket over it. I guess I should give it another try. Thank you.

    Hi, Roberto, my friend. I'm sorry I haven't been in touch lately. The entire second half of 2017 was non-stop exhausting and stressful (NON-STOP, for real!). But I look forward to checking in at some point this month to see how you are doing and to cheer you on!!
