FAWM #9! Where did the time go!?

My favourite month of the year hands down cause I get to collab with all you brilliant FAWMers! I enjoy this community with all my viking heart; even though by march I want to throw my synths out the window and never make music again!

Oh, and I see there’s alot of opinions about collabs and rules and agreements and ...zzzzzz.... Lets just create!

    Oops. Sorry.

  • @bking  3 weeks

    Thank you for taking the time to comment on my stuff. I haven't forgotten your request for the previous chapters in the Luna Bots series.

  • @wacha  4 weeks

    Thank you for taking the time to listen to and comment on my songs, I really appreciate the feedback.

  • @solarrainuk  6 weeks

    Cheers Kristian 😀 The Digitakt is great isn't it? It has quite a lot of limitations, but the workflow on that little guy is so quick and fun. I also had the A4 and AR MkI units, but sold them not too long ago, partially to fund the modular gear and I found I just didn't use them so much. It's taken me a while to figure what hardware I get on with.

    Never tried the Octatrack, it always intimidated me being so deep and not as immediately fun to use as say the Digi. But since learning the Elektron way of things and sometimes getting a bit annoyed with the Digitakts limitations (especially regarding samples, lack of LFOs/FX etc, no stereo..), I've been very tempted with the Octa mk2 for a while. Once my 2nd eurorack case is finished I might invest in one later in the year, still on the fence a bit, but we'll see 😀

    Thank you for your kind words on "Born Dead" and "Join Me in Death".

    I was nervous going into "Born Dead" that was the first time I wrote lyrics to someone else's music and for a while I thought I had bitten off more than I could chew but then I started getting such a great feedback that it put me at ease. I've always anted to do a full band thing but I don't have the no how or enough people in my area that I could work with so this really let me explore that.

    "Join Me in Death" is such a dark song that I really wanted to work on that one, I don't know that I'd be able to come up with such dark lyrics on my own so to get to work with them was a treat.

  • @marijequerida 7 weeks

    Thanks so much for your comments on my collaborations with @meadows !

  • @haim  7 weeks

    Thank you for your cute comment on my skirmish song "goodbye tank".. very kind.

  • @mdavisto  7 weeks

    You're right, it's too loud in the mix. It's not a snare, though, it's claps. I was clearly fighting the urge to copypasta the chorus and go EVEN BIGGARRRRR.

    Unless you mean the *snare* snare, which is part of the brush kit. Yeah I kinda drew a line under the track and walked away, you know?

  • @deena  7 weeks

    You've been having such a great FAWM! I really love what you've been up to!

  • @judypie  8 weeks

    Haha well I adore Radiohead but don't know much about music so am not sure what radioheady chords are but yuppppp, I'll take it 😁 Thanks so much for the listens and comments!

  • @ihelen 8 weeks

    Thank you for commenting on the Pet song, Roses song, and having a look at the manuscript as well. They were all fun to make.

    I can see the appeal of a fish from a parent's point of view, but also the appeal of a hamster from a kid's perspective. He gets to pick up the cuddly, furry hamster and give it a nice hug. Well, any pet would be perfect, really. 😀

  • @judypie  8 weeks

    Haha good isn't it! I used the "happiest" one I could find 😁 Yeah the lyrics.. me and Ad are trying to figure out if we'd had an argument the day before they appeared in my notepad hahahahah

  • @robynmackenzie  8 weeks

    Check your dropbox!!! 😁

  • @zoom  8 weeks

    Yup. Norwegian winters bring out the heart ache. haha
    I made some sound to C O R N E R tonite.
    I try to not think about the thin walls between the apartments here 😁

  • @adforperu  8 weeks

    Have I called you Kristin a few times now? Dayyyyum. It's not even a conscious thing, I'd be saying "Kristian" out loud, ha!

  • @aprilm  8 weeks

    So glad it played for you! Thanks for checking it out and for your kind words!

  • @aprilm  8 weeks

    Strange! Maybe try another browser?

  • @oddbod  8 weeks

    No Emotion.....I think it's just E > Bmin7 > C#min7

    Brilliant job with The Intervention. Love the orchestration. Actually I was surprised my accent wasn't quite as awful as I was expecting!

  • @oddbod  Feb 22

    Hey yeah, sounds excellent. And that's my No. 14 up. Cheers mate - now just the operetta 😉

  • @shortdan  Feb 21

    Haha! I tell you what... I will give that track a go and report back 😀

  • @shortdan  Feb 21

    Haha! Well... to clarify - it wasn't that I didn't like Placebo - more that I was completely unfamiliar with them yet pretended to be a big fan purely to ingratiate myself with this person. Ha!

  • @williamhaight Feb 21

    Thank you for the feeback on man and his guitar. We appreciate it.

  • @engebretsen  Feb 20

    Thx a lot for comments on "Nowhere to run to" !

  • @benjo  Feb 20

    Hey thank you so much for your kind words on, fool
    good point week 1 i never realised
    take care

  • @oddbod  Feb 19

    hey Kristian, do you think you can do anything with what I sent? I was just wondering whether to do some lyrics or not.

  • @zoom  Feb 17

    thanx my friend! I´m soooo scared posting these demoes.
    But yeah; it´s fun too.

  • @jibbidy34  Feb 17


    Congratulations Centurion Soldier! You wrote 100 comments for your fellow FAWMers!! You made this place even better. You took your time to listen to other people's songs and you have 100 thank you's from all of them and from me! Here’s your badge. Excellent work and keep busting’ those zongs!!

  • @oddbod  Feb 16

    email sent

  • @leslie Feb 16

    You and me both. 😉

  • @leslie Feb 16

    It's my m audio box unmapping all over the place. Haven't figured it out yet. 😏 I have to play my electronica live and sing at the same time like a savage.

  • @zoom  Feb 15

    Thank you for pointing out the tailes 😂

  • @bking  Feb 15

    Thanks for stopping by and listening. I have it on my todo list to post links to all of the previous episodes of The Telepathic Bung Floggers of Phobos. I'll keep you posted.

  • @ryako  Feb 15

    Hey, thanks for *your* comments! Haha, I don't play guitar. Like, I suck for reals. My playing barely qualifies as playing.
    And with the musical theater songs, I just pretend I'm a Disney princess. Man, I have an insane storyline for this FAWM and I really hope I can finish it so I don't leave anyone hanging.

  • @oblivionratula  Feb 15

    Thank you for the lovely, thoughtful comments on "Just Let It Happen" and "Mother of Swords." I've told others - after a break and re-listening, I need to retract my original thoughts on the piano - I'd just heard it too much in editing/mixing. Agree that drums are a weak point for me, never really knowing what to do with them, but eh, it's a demo. Again, thank you and I'm pleased to meet you.

  • @ryako  Feb 15

    What's up? Sorry, I didn't have the time to do this before, but I'm finally getting around to it. Thanks so much for your comments on my songs! I appreciate them, especially because I think you have mad skills yourself.

  • @oddbod  Feb 15

    I forgot, I do have an idea - not much (3 chords and a melody) but it’s a start. I’d put it aside as a collab idea to put to someone else, but I can’t see that happening now.
    I’m out of action today but I’ll email you a link tomorrow.

  • @oddbod  Feb 15

    BTW, I agree entirely with your view (above) on collabs

  • @oddbod  Feb 14

    Ha ha. Okay. Let’s wait till this weekend is over. I have 5 collabs on the go at the moment and hopefully I will have completed most by then. If you have something to send me in the meantime though let me know, and I’ll do the same.

  • @oddbod  Feb 14

    Would love to Kristian but I'm stretching myself ridiculously thin, but hey it's Fawm....okay, you might have to do the running though.

  • @errol Feb 14

    Alllloo, @kristian ! I haven't forgotten about you. I was able to finish one of my own songs, so I hope to get to finishing singing your song this week/weekend.

  • @xfloorpunchx Feb 13

    Thank you so much for your kind comment on our collab 😀

  • @frenchcricket Feb 13

    Thanks! I still use a Kaoss Pad for wibbly real-time fx even though it’s a bit dated

  • @hanley  Feb 12

    Thanks for all your listening and kind comments. Just started listening to yours (loving what I hear!) and looking forward to hearing the rest when I have the chance.

  • @debs  Feb 12

    Hello my friend! I'm sorry I've been so MIA so far. I'd be honoured to collab! I'm still easing into FAWM so don't have an idea in mind yet but let me know if you do!

  • @aesthetic72  Feb 12

    Hi K - yes, I'd still love a collab. My life has been consumed with work. Can we aim for middle of Feb? I have a super long weekend Feb 16-19th and I can spare time then for songwriting.

  • @engebretsen  Feb 11

    Thank you for you´re awesome comments on all my songs so far! Much appreciated, and enjoyable reading. Very happy about the details you mention. Tusen takk!

  • @gerrybhoy  Feb 8

    Hi Kristian, thank you for dropping by, good luck.

  • @expendablefriend  Feb 8

    haha!

  • @expendablefriend  Feb 8

    Re socks: I'm guessing this is a Viking adaptation of the Kon Mari method?

  • @helenseviltwin  Feb 7

    Hey - re: looper - I sometimes use a looper pedal live, but for recording, I just copy and paste sections of the vocal if I want the same thing over and over. If I were doing a proper recording, I would do a scratch recording that way, and then go through and sing each part for the whole song, as I think it sounds better and more organic that way, but FAWM is too short for that nonsense.

  • @cts  Feb 6

    Got it. Should be good by Friday.

  • @mantra  Feb 6

    Eow aehw ehh miew. 🐾
    [Mantra thanks you for your excellent comments. Congrats on connecting with your inner cat. No meow in "The Dark Forest" - Mantra enjoys keyboards, but he's not really a singer. He will occasionally babble when the song demands it, but he's mainly into instrumental-catcore.]

  • @engebretsen  Feb 6

    Fint å se deg her igjen. Lykke til i år!

  • @standup  Feb 5

    I do play lap steel. Not well. But if you need a simple atmsopheric part I could probably help out.

  • @sph  Feb 5

    You might be right with some sounds being off-key. That happens all too fast with fretless bass or cheap guitars 😁
    Thanks for listening

  • @cts  Feb 5

    Uh - I don’t see anything from you. Do you mind sending that again please?

  • @cts  Feb 5

    Uh...you sent a track to me?

  • @cts  Feb 5

    Hey! Thanks for dropping by and taking in some jelly! Everything good on your end?

  • @ryuu  Feb 3

    Hello Kristian! Thanks for your welcome on my soundboard - and, erm, I hope big life changes aren't becoming the norm for me, I'm only still adjusting to the bunch from 2017 (getting married, moving, becoming a full-time freelancer).
    Looking forward to your sounds!

  • @chasingandromeda  Feb 3

    Glad you liked it. The synth is the SE-02. It's bolstering the bass.

  • @mantra  Feb 2

    Maew errwhow! Thank you very much for your comment!
    Re the leash : My human is well trained, but I wouldn't walk him in the wild without a leash, lest he should take fright and run away.
    [Mantra's human speaking : he doesn't mind the leash. He could follow without it, but we take him to various unknown places, mainly forests and canyons, and harness him for his safety. He does think that *he* walks the leash bearer. Also, thank you for your great comment on my song. I'll be back to listen to you when you post something.]

  • @nuchoyce Feb 2

    Thanks for checking out my song. Looking forward to hearing your music!

  • @meadows  Feb 2

    Have a nice FAWM dear Kristian! Looking forward to listening to your music!

  • @leslie Feb 1

    Yes! Let's make some synthy sounds. Once I make my studio work again which it is currently not. Hooray technology!

  • @tobermory  Feb 1

    Wooooahhh gettin' close... It's only February on the GMT line now... good luck

  • @owl  Jan 31

    Hey Viking pal! Have an awesome and productive FAWM! Hit me up if you want to collab again this month!

  • @zoom  Jan 31

    Takk for at du fortalte meg om dette 🤓 Nå får vi se da... om det blir noe produksjon ! 🎶

  • @alboe Jan 31

    Countdown has started, I hope you'll have a great FAWM.

  • @mikegtz  Jan 31

    Kristian, welcome back. Be looking at you all month.

  • @sapient  Jan 29

    Hallo Viking Man!
    Yes, there are all indeed kitty emojis
    🐱🐺🐈
    I'm never sure how they appear on other devices 🦑

  • @deena  Jan 29

    Hi Kristian... I am going for it... and I'm counting on you to help me get there! Please! I really hope we can collaborate once again. xxoo

  • @ryako  Jan 29

    No, YOU rock, you music muthagangsta! Nice to see you again!

  • @echovoodoo Jan 29

    Less in the way of jingles and more in the way of musical beds for short promos.

    Hope you have a good FAWM!

  • @valeriecox  Jan 29

    Kristian. Hey! Totally with you on the zzzzz. I just want to make cool things.

  • @musicsongwriter Jan 28

    Hi Kristian, looking forward to hearing your amazing music.
    Nadia

  • @looprication  Jan 26

    Imma try. Who's doing #VikingPornHouse ? Gotta get me some of that.

    Great to hear from you!

  • @chasingandromeda  Jan 23

    Crying laughing...

  • @karlsburg25  Jan 23

    Yep we defo should collab mate. More than up for that this year. And yeah if you ever get to thailand, Koh Phayam is the place to be for music, no cars, no ATMS, amazing beauty and incredible people. The bass player (forgotten his name) from metallica goes there every year and plays at the live evening i went to. Its incredible, free and creative. Which i why i booked myself 2 weeks back there end of feb, even though i defo can't afford it!! ha ha

  • @chasingandromeda  Jan 23

    Looking forward to more Viking Porn House.

    Wait, you used a pseudonym for that, didn't you?

    Crap. Sorry.

  • @russiasaturn Jan 23

    Happy FAWMing! 🤗

  • @karlsburg25  Jan 22

    Hey hey there

  • @standup  Jan 20

    Hello again, let's do this!

  • @musicsongwriter Jan 19

    Thank you Kristian. You too. I'll be delighted to collaborate with you if you are happy to.
    Nadia

  • @petemurphy Jan 19

    Hey Kristian! Thanks! You too. I hope you have a great time 😀

  • @zecoop  Jan 19

    So just wondering which camp you're in... Can we discuss that please because I think we need to flesh out some details... Lol....

    Can't wait to hear what you have! Maybe our paths will cross! That would be awesome.

  • @expendablefriend  Jan 18

    P.S. yes - I completed 50/90! I'm pretty sure that was entirely down to not having been able to take part in FAWM. I'm stubborn like that 😁

  • @expendablefriend  Jan 18

    Oh I am here - fear not! Super busy with non-music things, but I guess I will just have to sleep less. Time to resume our collab tradition?

  • @aesthetic72  Jan 17

    @kristian Hi Kristian, thanks so much for responding to my collab ad. I listened to some of your tracks and they are incredibly beautiful. I'd be honored to work out something with you. FAWMtastic!

  • @nancyrost  Jan 17

    Number 9 ... Number 9 ....

  • @johncrossman  Jan 17

    You are the man. Well, you are a man. So... you could be the man, I guess. I mean, it's not completely out of the question. Somebody's got to be. Er. Looking forward to hearing you too!

  • @joshlevitre  Jan 16

    Welcome back! I'm looking forward to another couple collabs if you are 😀

  • @songsville  Jan 16

    Hey. Looking forward to one of your classical just-piano pieces again, maybe? I'll be outside on the grass on the 1st of March waiting to catch your synths; I like that Juno of yours ... 😉

  • @vomvorton  Jan 16

    Hey Kristian!

    "Lets just create" - indeed, couldn't have said it better myself!

  • @pfoo  Jan 16

    Hey! Looking forward to hearing your synths!

  • @mdavisto  Jan 16

    I have kids. My mouse is sticky and the wheel doesn't work, except for when it starts randomly scrolling on its own.

    Good to see you again.

  • @adforperu  Jan 16

    Heeeeey man!

  • @cts  Jan 15

    Well, well, well...I do believe we’re going to have to get a lemon vibe going. You, sir, have two sticky notes on my board. One of them says: Shaolin. The other ain’t being revealed until February. 😛

  • @tesla3090  Jan 15

    Welcome back!

  • @devin  Jan 15

    Duuuude!

    Press keys!
    Make happy noises!
    Use exclamation points!

    Thanks for stopping by... have a great event!
