Influences: Wendy Carlos, Chelsea Manning, ANOHNI, cLOUDDEAD, Jenny Hval
My real name is now Anya - change your rolodexes.
FAWM #9 - More experimental, less time.
I also intend to do tons of sampling to piss off that one guy who loses his shit about it
Apologies - I'm busy with university stuff and am undergoing a gender transition...
...so am way behind on songs, comments, and thankyous. Consider this a heartfelt thank you! xx
Ooops - that was a bit rubbish!
Phew! Thanks for listening and the lovely comment ...
I have never seen your face before, I don't think! My previous mental image of you was a pile of legos. Your eyes are a lovely color.
My hair is also bluish green at the moment, but it's naturally black, so I can't get it so light without frying it, so it's more of a dark teal than pastel.
Oh cool, I did a few creative writing workshop classes in college but never any "real" English classes i.e. Literature. Are you doing poetry or prose or none/all of the above?
What are you studying? Sad I haven't seen more songs from you this year but at least you have some good and worthy distractions going on. (I can't imagine the bureaucratic horrors of getting your gender legally changed, good luck getting through the rest of that process. I couldn't even deal with the paperwork of a name change so I kept mine when I got married)
Just checked out your band. You make my kind of psychedelia.
Cool. Loved that last one - it's stuck in my head actually!
SICKENING I know
To sing? I don't think he'd know how to teach! He doesn't know what he's doing, just naturally gifted 😛
Thank you French! Yeah good shout on chord change on second 'you don't know her'. Someone else said we didn't start the fire but I've genuinely never heard that song. Unintentional rip off there! 😛I dunno about chord changes, great that they're sophisticated! I only pick em based on what sounds right so definitely not forced. I had one singing lesson when I first picked up guitar and if I had the money I'd have a hundred more!
More time, less experimental?
I love the idea of using sampling as an irritant to someone you've never met‼ You should sample one of his songs. Good luck for February.
Hey matey, bring on the samples. you can be the antihesis of me this month. Only thing i'll be sampling is bird noises and horn beeps
Haha is that right! Gonna hold you to that, can't say it comes naturally to me!
Delight my ears with your beautiful noises!
Hey, hope you have a nice FAWM.
Yo! cLOUDDEAD? Heck yes. Space is potent.
FAWM on! Looking forward to the experiments and hopefully some crazy time signatures
LOL @ sampling. I wasn't planning on doing any, but you make a persuasive argument.
looking forward to more great stuff from you!
Good luck; I'm going to pretend I'm angry at your use of samples, in the hope that we can escalate it into a full-on public meltdown in the forums, both say we're quitting but then rejoin 30 minutes later. Do we have a deal?
It's all good material to sing about (as long as you're not too explicit about which dicks are fucking up the group dynamic). Oh, and - ha! - Chelsea Manning as an influence! The US establishment can suck it this year. Give em both barrels
Sure thing. You out of exam hell for the time being then?
Did you by any chance catch any of ANOHNI's Hopelessness shows when she was over here? Was able to go to the Edinburgh one and it was phenomenal.
Anyway, looking forward to hearing new stuff from you
More experimental sounds like the best plan! My ears are ready.
