Karan 16


Germany   Jan 2009


Artist Bio

Influences:   Thoughts between waking and sleeping. The radio. Newspaper headlines. Overheard conversations. Trees. Everyday weirdness. Hikes through the jungle of the internet. Crows. Rainbows. The seven seas.

Eighth year FAWMer, coffee-addicted singer/songwriter, playing and singing in the German band "Singvøgel" (see website), stubborn user of her mother tongue for lyrics (don't worry, I'll provide translations), intending to have as much fun as can be possibly squeezed into the shortest month of the year.

Check out my bandmates:

How I work:
Mostly with my guitar, sometimes lyrics first, sometimes music. Recording with my Zoom H4n, mixing with Mixcraft. Occasionally I use Band in a Box. I am not very tech savvy, so don't expect professional productions here (they'll come later, in collaboration with my bandmates).

    Karan, mein "Halbsong" ist fertig - wenn du mal reinhorchen magst:
    Ist ja witzig: Wir haben Song-Gleichstand!

  • @irkaxx Feb 29

    Danke, dass du trotz meiner Absage an FAWM16 reinschaust

  • @misterd Feb 20

    Thankyou Karan for your kind words !

  • @popmythology  Feb 20

    Oh, yes, I absolutely agree with that. Creative and intuitive people especially can sometimes get an inkling without even trying. And I also believe that with focus, cultivation and time we can get more than just a glimpse or an inkling....

  • @popmythology  Feb 20

    Thank you so much, Karan, for your comment on my song for my dog.

  • @timfatchen  Feb 20

    Thank you Karan for the applause! Temperature here: we live in the cool hills above Adelaide...although we should still be in height of summer, current maximum is only around 33-34C (though it was supposed to be 40C yesterday). Temperatures in the desert: highest I was out in was 49C officially, car thermometer said 56C at the point where one of the engine fans melted off its bearings!

  • @arthurrossi Feb 18

    I would like to thank you so much for your fantastic comment!

  • @jaegerin  Feb 18

    Thanks for your comment. Yeah that's *exactly* what I was thinking of. (am fine though)

  • @shac  Feb 18

    What are the chances?! There were only a few words really so I think it's handled already. There are a few app users from Germany I think so it's top of the list Glad you found the app useful, and thanks for the comment on the song!

  • @shac  Feb 17

    You're smashing it with 10 already! Nice.

    Here's a code, let me know how it goes! 46U9Z2GHNGE9FHATGBDYMFX

    (Oh, and I was looking in to getting German translations done for the app text only today!)

  • @igg  Feb 16

    Thanks for commenting on Life's Salad Bar!!!!

  • @timfatchen  Feb 15

    Ha. " Lullaby of the Lambs" was brought about because I finally saw the film "The Big Short" which I hugely recommend both as entertainment and education. And I am ashamed, a little, because whilst the lullaby lays the blame at the feet of the short traders, the reality--as I was told by economists back in 2008-9 but couldn't believe--is that the shorters were perhaps the only honest bunch in the market, and the real villains were the central banks, the ratings agencies, and the governments. Sorry, change all that to present tense, because it appears nothing has changed. No one went to prison. Well, one small-time crook. One. From the destruction of the world's financial system. One. (PS See the film!)
