Influences: classical music from Perotinus to Arvo Pärt, filk (Leslie Fish, Julia Ecklar), Marian Call, Heavy Metal (Iron Maiden, Blind Guardian, Nightwish [with Tarja Turunen], Van Canto, Dream Theater, Dimmu Borgir), some Goth music, people who have seen Earth from outer space, and my friends the incredible Singvøgel
I'm a repeat offender - this is my 7th FAWM!
I live in Freiburg, Germany, just below the very first outskirts of the Black Forest.
I'm a classically-trained mezzo-soprano with long choir experience, studied musicologist, experimenting on my guitars (concert - got some years of lessons, forgot a lot - and Western - autodidact), have tried to learn the piano for some years and forgotten most of it again. Occasionally making noise on a cheap ukulele, too.
Stubborn user of Ubuntu Studio and Open Source software. I might deviate from that now and then and use Sibelius for music typesetting or even composing/recording orchestral stuff.
Default output mode: --verbose.
Can sing in German (including Middle High German), Latin, Italian, French, Quenya, Ancient Greek (although with some help) and English.
I can (as proven in the last FAWMs) make lyrics in German, English, Italian, Latin and Quenya, but usually I prefer English.
If you want me to sing your lyrics, please keep them free of explicitly male-female romance (unspecified genders are fine) and (monotheist or closed-tradition) religion (I'm not an atheist or anti-religious, it's just... complicated). I'll gladly sing queer, nerdy, science-y things.
I was infected with the madness back in 2011 by my friends @Karan, @dukemeyer and @sentense. Greetings to my friends @ansgar & @wurzelfrau and @grenzgaengerin and special smooches to my honeybunch @willoww!
This year – 2017 – exciting things are happening in my life. I'm looking forward to a great adventure and major positive changes in my life. Unfortunately, that means I will have little time for FAWMing. But let's see what I can squeeze into the small corners of time that I can steal here and there...
2017-02-09 Alas, the bread-winning work is piling up and keeping me from making songs. On the positive side, this year the workee-work is actually bringing in some money and it's satisfying, for a change.
For anyone who wants to collab with me: I won't be able to record anything between February 18th and March 1st, and even before that, my time and brainpower are very limited.
Hi Camilla. No rush or demand from me. Email button on my FAWM profile will reach me!Looking forward to seeing what you do with it first!.
