Aging bohemian. Left to myself, I'd be a hermit, but I happen to love doing this. . . which more or less requires social interaction. Go figure.
Lots of music education in my youth. I am no longer in my youth, nor do I regret leaving it. But if I could remember where I left it, I'd go get it back.
FAWM 2018. Update. I'm just lurking so far this year. I have no idea if I'll have any input. I'm just listening and commenting occasionally. If I come up with anything, it will be in an attempt to completely subvert my usual writing process. I feel stuck and nothing sounds interesting, so we'll see. I'm enjoying listening to other fawmers.
No songs by this fawmer (yet).
.... so you're specifically listening to the stuff I *don't* like?
You're absolutely right about Hush Hush, thank you for providing the kind of honest feedback that most fawmers won't.
While I appreciate (and even concur with) FAWM's ethos of encouragement rather than criticism, there's a point beyond which it's less helpful.
So what you are hearing in that track is two things. One, I am literally mousing it this year, as my controller keyboard is dead.
Two, we were waiting on a vocal part from someone who was just too busy with life to come through for us now. Absent that, we just faded it out. It'll be a different beast in its release form.
POST SOMETHING OF YOUR OWN SOON I NEED MY PAULHENRY FIX
Thanks for the comment on my song!

The program is Tracker Based, though it has moved well beyond that technology, even though the basic composing interface is still tracker based (Pattern & Sequence Editors with a whole lot of Hex code). I find it very inspiring to use, but then I've been using Tracker software since the early '90's (Soundtracker & Impulse Tracker mostly). If you're unfamiliar with Tracker Workflow, it may seem very foreign to you. Glad I caught your interest tho.
See You In The Shadows…
Hey! Nice to see you will be here again! I wish you a wonderful February!
Hey my man. Good to see you here again.
Yeah I share your feelings about not forcing the 14. They may happen, they may not. I'm looking forward to being quite silly and having fun.
HI Paul! Welcome back....I'm in one piece and eager to start....
Hello. You here this year?
Welcome back, happy Fawming!
