* 2018 PLAN
Usually I have a plan, an overarching theme for my songs for a given FAWM. But this year, I seem to be just trundling along, doing whatever. Which is absolutely fine, of course. I guess my "theme" this year is just having fun! 😀
* MY DEBUT ALBUM
I just released my debut album a short while ago. Entitled "For Those About to Grow Your Beard (We Salute You)," it is, unsurprisingly, an album of beard songs.
For better or worse, it pretty accurately reflects who I am as a musician. And, really, as a person. It's available at Bandcamp (https://opinionatedwhiskers.bandcamp....) and Spotify (http://spoti.fi/2jnjAqG) and all the other usual streamers / retailers.
In junior high a long, long time ago, I elected to take flute as my required instrument. Unfortunately, in my second year, I was put in a third-year class due to a scheduling conflict. Being so far behind everyone else made me miserable. As a result, I did . . . unfortunate things to my flute to sabotage it in order to try to get out of class.
The repair guy figured it out pretty quick.
Nonetheless, while I've always enjoyed a very active listening relationship with music, the whole experience pretty much killed any interest I had in making my own. Until over twenty years later, when for some reason I picked up a keyboard and a computer DAW.
And now, I'm loving every minute of it.

Oh my goodness Dupletarion Warrior you are AWESOME!! You took the time to write 200 comments and listen to all those songs! Thanks for your hefty contribution to our community. You have 200 thank you’s from your fellow FAWMers and from me! Excellent work and keep busting’ those zongs!!
Ooh...you're at 13. I think this'll be my first year that I don't make it, if you discount the year I was traveling in SE Asia.
I wouldn't worry too much about getting deeper. There might not be anything down there, aside from what's in your own head. Thanks for listening. I always appreciate your comments...and your songs.
Odilon thank you so much for your thoughtful insights on my change of season song. I'm glad you enjoyed it. I have so much music to listen to. I shall have a listen to some of yours now!!
Hi It's taken me ages, but just posted a track with the lyrics for "I'll have another".. . If you'd care to drop back, I'd be delighted.
Thank you so much for your generous comment on "Better Angels"!
Thank you Odilon for your kind skirmish comment, it's caribic epiano from fl studio.
Thank you for more feedback on my work. It's inspiring to hear from folks who I respect, like you! You have a sublime sense of humor that seems to infect everything you do. Some other things:
- Pyjama Charm is the 90's treat I didn't know I was missing, thank you!
- re: layered vox, hmm. I have this feeling there are some quick, non-dissonant vocal treatments that could fit the same bill - if you're interested, I'd love to collaborate on building a couple of suitable FX-chains that fit your voice.
- bandcamp ep: that's definitely the most organized of my collection, but there's a good chunk of stuff available at https://soundcloud.com/cameron-seebach and then older, different stuff at https://soundcloud.com/spirulence
FAWM is so inspiring this year - thank you again!
Thanks so much for your comments on Winter River. I am touched. I am happy you enjoyed it
Thanks so much for dropping by and taking a listen to my instrumental River in Winter. I really enjoyed composing it . The Prompt words were perfect for this time of year up here in the Northeast US!
My Voice has a demo now.
I will resist the urge, but I want to do a disco version of I Ordered A Pizza after my triumphant disco song I recorded entitled "Nope".
Thanks so much for your version of Winter River. Gave me goosebumps!
Thanks for checking out my Voice song. I kinda missed the skirmish deadline due to other responsibilities but I'm glad I got that one together. I appreciate your compliments!
Hi.. thanks for the nice comment on my skirmish "River". Have a nice fawming.
Thanks. You are correct! it is a subtle metaphor for love running away as the river is icy cold, there are dark shadows, and the river is ebbing and flowing inviting other streams... and the second verse there is warmth that the singer is looking for - show me this- but the river flows away. So yep sad albeit subtle until that last line ...
Sure go ahead and do another version!
Thanks so much for the kind words on "Winter River"
I am really glad I just read your profile. Smiles abound.
And way to go.
You are bringing a bunch of light here.
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!!
Thanks for the nice comment on my skirmish song, "Dopey Hacienda."
Thanks for the comment on my song, “3 Drinks Later” - loved your suggestion. 😀
I'm eagerly awaiting my first track too 😉
Thanks for stopping by and commenting on some of my songs. Much appreciated.
Wow. Thanks a lot with comments on "If I Said I´m Sorry" Nice to hear that you enjoyed this collab that much. Appreciated.
It was fun. I really hope there are more versions of I Ordered a Pizza yet!
I hope you like my version!
Thanks for your compliments on my skirmish song! My first one this year so it's good to hear some positive feedback. Glad you liked it.
Thank you Odilon for your kind comment on I want to run...
I thought I'd leave the decision to the reader/listener, kind of left it open to interpretation. Run from boldness would definitely work too...
Thanks for the flip of the beard on my skirmish song, "The Face."
Hey thanks for the kind words on "Lost Face'. You just missed the demo...it's up now. Thanks!
I like the guy with the horizontal beard-tails. Have a great FAWM!
Beards? Robots? Towers and trees? What will it be?
Like the bio!
It's good to see you back again. And congratulations on getting the album released! I know you've started several, but to actually push the button is great stuff! I'm looking forward to hearing your stuff!
Howdy O.G. - my facial hair FAWMer! Good to see you again! Hope that beard is keeping your face warm this winter.
Heya Odilon 😀 Can't wait to hear your songs this year !
I'm not allowed to drink booze for two days! This is the biggest hit to my productivity.
Thank you for your kind welcome Odilon. Looking forward to hearing your songs.
Back for another go? Why do we do this mad thing 😀 Have a great FAWM
The only issue I see with a song cycle about ice cream is that it would take away time from eating ice cream. Ha!
Fun to see your name on my board! Hope you have a great February and bang that cowbell loud and proud! Keep those aliens at bay!
Hey!!!! Let's do this! Woo hoo!
jolly to see yu back here, oh bearded one. now that the beard album is complete, i look forward to following you in new wondrous directions
Cheers OG! Hope you enjoy Hundreds of Zeroes. I'll give your album a spin now!
Haha I am always game with my razor
Well...um, yeah - yeah, I’m The FAWM. So hear me and be ready to collab when I summon thee! 😎
Hiya OG! I was just thinking about you today! I am already curious as to what delightful music you will be preparing for us this year. And hopefully your kidneys won't be stoned this year! Happy FAWM 2018!
What's up? Maybe Predator vs. Alien: The Musical?
Hope FAWM 2018 is good to you!
Hello!! Great to see you back. 😀 Yay for FAWM!!
You back? Hope so.
The FAWM calls you...
