Freiburg Germany   Jan 2011

Artist Bio

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.
