Hello. My name is MJ. I'm from Austin, Texas but I live in Boston right now.
I am piano & cello capable.
My former bandmate is @antlion.
I'm happy to set music to lyrics, so drop me a line if you want to collab. Meanwhile, my lyric-less music is always up for grabs.
Thank you for your kind words regarding Tiger.
Dammit, half way into FAWM and I only now realize this is where you thank people for their comments! So thanks for your compliments for despite your best effort! Gear wise for this one its a circuit bend toy keyboard and an Atari Punk Console running through an analog filter. Pretty crappy stuff actually 😉
Anyway, keep up the good work yourself!
Thank you for your comment on "Experimental AF," I had a lot of fun doing it. Sorry it took me a while to acknowledge your comment. Illness/life keeping me hoppin'.
Yeah, "girl-with-instrument" feels so limiting. As a nonbinary writer, I was like, uhhh, let's say "human." 😀 Thanks for listening!
Thanks so much for your comment! Mega-amen 😀
Hi.. thanks for the sweet comment on "River", Happy fawm..!
Actually they are not reptilians, they are amphibians. The scales on their skin is what makes people believe they are reptiles but hello...Fish??? They live under the sea hence why Earth is predominantly water. Anyhow, global warming is a fraud. Where disease gets you is in the food and....believe it or not what you watch through screens. Yup. Disease can travel into the eyes and hit the "mind" causing "bugs" in the system so to speak. Gosh, isn't this so meditative and relaxing? I don't know about you but my anxiety is zero right now.
My name is in reference to snakes. They eat everything. Including their own kind. Did you know our government is run by Dark Black-Op Secret Reptilians from the Draco constellation who sacrifice cello players in evil Satanic rituals?? Hope your anxiety cools down :-p
Hi, ya, Purple Storm was a trip to put together. Haha Thanks for checking it out!
I've gotten that quite a few times from people who listen to my songs (outside of FAWM). They sense a bit of a strong presence. I'm not an easy person so the anxiety makes sense.
Aew eeow meehw. Mrrr ahew mrrrw.
[Mantra thanks you for your kind words. To fight anxiety, he strongly recommends catnip.]
Thanks for the feedback. As far as I know “empaths dilemma” is just me being poetic and not a phrase you can google. But what I mean by that is the feeling of being around someone who is hurting and wanting to help them but also wanting to distance yourself from taking in their negative energy? I guess the term “emotional labor” would also be appropriate. Anyway heavy stuff.
Hahaha, you are duty-bound to calling those numbers, somewhere out there is a droid who could really do with a friend.
I'm glad you enjoyed the music, I think In that track it's 7/4? For me, when I start listening to a track try counting straight until you reach a number which seems out of place and take a guess the second time around, going back to 1 when you hear a repeat of phrase or rhythm
If counting straight doesn't work you're more likely to have a compound meter
I think with this track quickly counting 1,2,3,4-1,2,3, (7) is another good way of grouping the beats.
I think once I put down the underlying rhythm which stays most of the track I kind left it there, and forgot what time signature it was so I could make a mess on top of it? That way it might not seem to monotonous and repetitive.
Ha ha, so what you’re saying is it should have a trigger-warning?! 😂
Thank you so much for your comment on Homework Sucks! I’m intrigued, what’s ASMR?...
Thanks for listening to "Cutting Through"!
SHE'S GIGANTIC. Thank you for your kind comments! 😀
