Artist Bio

This is my 4th FAWM and like most people there is a lot going on that will prevent me doing just what I want during Feb. I am in the final stages of my MA in Music Practice so the only way I can justify doing FAWM is to have it supporting the MA.

My professional practice is currently around producing Sound Art to challenge he stigma around make suicide. I am yet to decide on the format for my final piece of work so I am going to use FAWM to further explore the data that I have collected and try different approaches to put this into a context using sound,

I will not be writing many β€˜standard format’, songs and anyone who heard my work from last FAWM will know that there can be some very strange things going on. FAWM is the perfect vehicle for me to focus my practice but I do apologise to anyone that stumbles across my work and wonders what the hell they have come across.

My aim will be to produce 16 pieces (might not achieve it all in FAWM and will polish the works before having a finalised album). I chose 16 as that is how many people die by suicide in the UK every day. If anyone does feel they would like to collaborate on a piece of work or they have produced something of their own that fits the theme I would be really pleased to discuss.

If you want to find out more about my current project you can check out the website http://soundartssi.wixsite.com/sassi/...

If you want to know more about me as an artist and musician you can check out my website www.julesbryant.co.uk and my blog https://sonicsentience.music.blog/

Would be happy to hook up with more people on Facebook, I love the family atmosphere that FAWM produces and I keep up with some past FAWM friends throughout the year. (FAWM friends are not just for February!)

    Thank you for your comment on my Remembrance song! I suspect if I were to actually play my flute, it wouldn't sound as good. πŸ˜‰

  • @headfirstonly  Mar 2

    Freckleton, eh? I hail from just up the road in Lytham.

  • @acousticmaddie  Mar 2

    Thanks for the comments on "We Got the Magic"! Yes, you are allowed to like it to!

    Also, thanks for listening to "The Brave One", I'm super proud of it!

  • @neilconnor Feb 27

    Thanks for the feedback on a couple of tunes, my cheap sigma 12 string is my portable weapon on choice, it makes me concentrate on chords and melody and sounds great πŸ˜€ neil

  • @thetaviaproject Feb 27

    Thanks for the help!

  • @thetaviaproject Feb 26

    You seem like you know the drill around here...does the site stay live after February 28? I look forward to checking out your songs later...

  • @barbara  Feb 26

    Hey, Jules! Thanks for the lightning fast commenting! It reminded me that you are one of the folks that I haven't come back to yet. I've just now read your bio notes, and due to the seriousness of your subject, I will wait until I have better attention for it. Now would be too rushed. I have appreciation for what you are up to and very curious to hear what kind of sound art you have going on. Meanwhile, thanks again for your supportive listening this evening!

  • @sheamiejay  Feb 23

    Thanks for the complement. Does sound a bit like Harry Potter. I thought I heard something from a Fairport Comvention song.

  • @aprilm Feb 20

    Thanks for checking out Money Man - it was a great collab! Lot so fun putting it together

  • @nadia Feb 20

    Thank you so much for your encouraging words on New York/L.A! keep on fawm-ing!! <3

  • @clioem  Feb 19

    thank you so much! I'm glad you're following the narrative and find it does something for you πŸ˜€

  • @thebschip Feb 19

    I listened to everything you have so far. I am intrigued. Quite a bit seemed uncomfortably familiar. Rather than comment on each one, I will come back now and then to get the full scope. None of it seems forced or hokey or cheesy or obtrusive to what I think you are going for, rather all open and honest and not dressed up and displayed in a pretty package. Much love and respect for what you are doing. i am certain that it is not easy.

  • @lisachaly  Feb 19

    ...and great project!!! Some powerful music being inspired here...

    Thanks so much for taking a moment to check out my soundscape for our trailer!! Your compliment is much appreciated 😊

  • @gflatminor  Feb 19

    Hey @julesbf , Tanks for listening to Camel Ride. You're right that was deceptive advertising. Thanks for the kind words. I like oohs cause they always rhyme.

  • @thelunggod Feb 18

    thanks for commenting on Jellyfish! We played it live in the same room and had tons of fun on that one

  • @thebschip Feb 18

    Thanks for stopping by and listening and commenting! You're one of my favourites every year, and I look forward to getting the time to come check out your tunes. 12 already! Good work!

  • @footprintsonthemoon Feb 17

    Thx for comments on Lunar soil. Using Sparks drum machine with little reverb and Omnisphere.

  • @arthurrossi Feb 16

    Thanks so much...

  • @spinhead  Feb 15

    I always hear songs like my "Run Away" with a big production so it's nice when someone else hears it that way. Thanks.

  • @dutch1967 Feb 15

    Thanks for that kind comment on Another Bar. Was a pleasure doing this song. The foundation being a song with some terrifically good lines, there wasn't much I felt needed doing. @billgcaldwell wrote a superb foundation to a cowboy song I will play for years to come.

  • @candle Feb 15

  • @phinean  Feb 2017

    thank you a lot for youre nice comment and for letting me know how to thank for comments πŸ˜€ πŸ˜‰

  • @dutch1967 Feb 2017

    Thanks for commenting on The Five Men, my collab with Stephen Wort. Took some doing to not drown the vocals and still build suspense. I may re-record some of the parts to allow the vocal to float on top a bit better.

  • @chandra83  Feb 2017

    Thanks for all of your feedback. πŸ˜€

  • @yam655  Feb 2017

    Congratulations on hitting Century Club! πŸ˜€

  • @marthie Feb 2017

    Thank you for your feedback on "It's all in the stars"

  • @marthie Feb 2017

    thank you for your feedback on "Heaven"

  • @marthie Feb 2017

    Thank you for your feedback on "Dream"

  • @standup  Feb 2017

    The module that does the audio snippets is the "Radio Music" by Music Thing. It has a dial like a radio knob, you can flip through the "stations" that are on an SD card. Or automate that with CV. Very fun module. It comes as a kit you build, but I found a used one and got it assembled and ready to go.

  • @majordanby  Feb 2017

    Thanks for listening to "Sunshine every day". It started out as a Beatles experiment complete with Little Richard ooooo,s, hence the simple rhyming, but wasn't really happening. Dan came up with this whilst playing Buckets of Rain.

  • @tjeff  Feb 2017

    Thanks for your kind comments - much appreciated. Read your bio & want to wish you all the best in your efforts.

  • @jwhanberry  Feb 2017

    Thanks for your comment on "Blood and Sweat". The skirmish was quite a rush.
    Some years ago there were a series of teen suicides and attempts in a town where I was teaching. It was quite upsetting. I wrote this song, "Annabel", about it.

  • @gemhughs Feb 2017

    Thank you for your kind comment on "Hold On to Your Dream". I think you are correct about promoting positive goals for kids, but we are all God's children (we just think we are adults) and we all need positive messages, goals, love, and hope. After listening to your songs and looking at you website, I can see you work to promote those ideals also. Good luck with your ongoing endeavor.

  • @nancihobson1  Feb 2017

    Thanks for your nice comment on my song! Appreciated πŸ˜€

  • @clioem  Feb 2017

    Thank you! I promise to check out your work soon, I've been utterly swamped this month.

  • @jbp123 Feb 2017

    Thanks for the comment on my violin piece. Sorry I haven't got round to listening to your stuff yet. I fully intend to, as soon as I get back from holiday. Your project is really interesting.

  • @tamsnumber4  Feb 2017

    Thanks for listening to "One on One With Nature" I really appreciate it!

  • @tamsnumber4  Feb 2017

    Jules, I think what you are doing is effective and fine, no worries.

  • @visiblydistorted Feb 2017

    Hey, I think you're onto something with the punk genre as a direction to take "Dodging Diamond Rings" - thanks for pointing that out πŸ˜€

  • @jenfoss  Feb 2017

    @julesbf Well shucks! I'm glad you enjoyed my song and my vocals! It's always an area we could use kind words, so thank you!

  • @cindyrella  Feb 2017

    Thanks Jules. If you look down on my songs, Susan picked up Torn and did a good job with it.

  • @arthurrossi Feb 2017

    Thanks so much for your beautiful and encouraging words, my friend...

  • @hazeyjohnii  Feb 2017

    Thanks for your comment! The guitar wasn't programmed, but it's not real - MIDI through a keyboard to a click track. I tried to make it possible to play it on a real guitar but I'm not sure it is...

  • @scubed  Feb 2017

    Thank you very much for your kind words on my collab with @kahlo2013! πŸ˜€

  • @kerrgriffin Feb 2017

    Thank you for the feedback! I'll put the lyrics up momentarily if you want to take a look.

  • @arthurrossi Feb 2017

    Thank you so much for your wonderful comment! I was so happy to read it!

  • @insaneian Feb 2017

    Hey! Thanks for the kind words on "The Bowling Green Fabrication Society"! Glad you enjoyed my parody!

  • @barbara  Feb 2017

    Thanks so much for listening to 'Hold On To Love' - squirrels and all! It was a lot of fun to make, completely unplanned. πŸ˜€

  • @thebschip Feb 2017

    Thanks for visiting and your sweet comments. πŸ˜€ I put up demos to the first two songs. πŸ˜€

  • @cindyrella  Feb 2017

    I had written this lyric last summer about my Granddaughter's father, who was a heroin addict.


  • @cindyrella  Feb 2017

    Do you know the song by Rise Against? Make it Stop.


  • @arthurrossi Feb 2017

    I would like to thank you very, very much for your that generous words...

  • @clioem  Feb 2017

    thanks so very much!

  • @arthurrossi Feb 2017
