Hi, I'm Austin. This is my 7th time a-FAWMin'. Looking forward to the throbbing agony I've come to associate with the season. The throbbing agony of creation.

Are you Longmont, CO? If so, you are the only other FAWMer I'm aware of that was active in 2017.
Thank you for listening to and commenting on my songs 😁 I'm definitely planning on having the songs blend into each other (I'd preplanned all the keys, tempos and made an instrument template on Cubase so it'd work!).
If you ever want to collab, drop me a line 😁
Thanks for listening and commenting on my tunes.
Thank you for coming by and listening to my jazz song It Wasn't Me.
Since I am such a fan of your work, means a lot to me
I'm definitely on for that!
Thanks for popping by to listen to "Vile" and "the Road Is So Long"! I appreciate your feedback. 😀
Thanks again for the comment on Dust, Austin. You're keeping up more than I am this year!
Hey, check that out!!! I definitely did not remember you had that song! Hahaha.
Whatever you decide to do....I'm not a singer, but try to give a nice foundation for a singer. In always surprised how singers do their thing.
Oh, NO! You didn't! Yes, in fact, you did. I've just come back from watching some of your videos. All are hilarious, po and ign'ant. Again. You do ROCK!
I'm checking out your website your stuff is so great - really love 'the last one'. It was bugging me what your voice reminded me of but I figured it out it was money mark.
Hey thanks for commenting on a bunch of my songs thats really appreciated! I'm checking out your stuff right now...
"The Throbbing Agony of Creation" should be the title of your FAWM album...thanks for commenting on my Bowling Green tune!
Thanks for the comment on "Death Meat Coffee." I can tell you that I very carefully placed each and every chord in the song. I just, you know, don't have a clue as to what I'm doing. 😀
I'm serious about that, too. Prior to this year I've been doing crapcapella (lo-fi a-capella). Mind you, I like crapcapella as a genre, but for me it is time to grow... Whatever the hell my genre is this year, it isn't that. 😉
Austin!! Thanks a ton for all the time listening and commenting... I really appreciate it a lot. You are on a roll this year. Can't wait to hear the rest. 😀
Thank you! Sadly we're on hiatus as we only have two active members left. And one of them (me) is super busy with university atm
HAHAHAHA! Yes that track was a little extra on the experimental side. Perhaps I should adjust my tags!!
Hi Austin, it's Robin from Bedford Level Experiment. About to listen to Spaceman...
Hahahaha. Thanks for swinging by. Yeah, I tried something new where I wrote as many as I could, recorded all of those the next two days, and now and mixing individually and posting. Then will try to repeat. Trying to master the art of time management. ((shrug)) Really enjoying your genius per usual this year, by the way.
Thank you for stopping by and listening to my Grimm Brothers inspired song 😁 I'm in Australia so it seems like I did the song a day early 😉 really it took me two days to put together. Yay for Regina Spektor!
Hey, thanks for the comments Austin! Looking forward to hearing what else you get up to this year 😀
Actually, sorry... I do have a magic secret for that warm sound. Shakers. Always. Shakers. 😀
Thanks for the listen... I'm starting to get into the groove of FAWM. Getting past the first song is always a lot of work, but starting the journey always feels good. I was really happy with the song you checked out, and felt that all the natural elements worked well together. No special sauce or secrets. Mic'ing things up in the studio and playing them with my hands always gives a nice warm sound. And last night the song writing muses played nice with my fingers. 😀
Hey there! Yay, more geeks! Happy FAWMing. 😀
Haha, it took me a good year (quite literally a year) of working with the songs before I was ready to officially release them after writing them during FAWM 😝 Looking forward to hear what you're going to create (and maybe just maybe release as well 😉 ) this FAWM!!
P.S. I'd watched some of your stuff on the Tube before! Awesome work 😁
HIIIIIIIII AUSTIN!!! 😝
Yay! Can't wait to hear what you do.
Really looking forward to more of your amazing tunes... Always a highlight! 😀
I enjoy your stuff. I'm glad to see you back!
