10 Years! I've finally reached double digits.
This year I want to try to write around a central theme. My goal is to explore potential explanations for the Fermi Paradox. I'm also open to collabs as well.
My music can best be described as dark electronic music, with elements of industrial, drum & bass, trip-hop, ambient, and trance mixed in. Heavily seasoned with a dose of cyberpunk, sci-fi, dystopianism. You can check it out at: https://cryounit.bandcamp.com/
Feel free to play any of my songs on a podcast, radio show etc. If you let me know I'll listen in/promote the show.
My email is email@example.com. 😀
Thanks for your comments! About that Switchblade track sounding 80s. I think it was the use of FM synths that probably gives it that vibe, the DX7 was in use quite a lot, especially by Jan Hammer in the mid to late 80's I think. A couple of sounds I used are almost perfect copies of DX7 sounds from what I can tell.
Hahaha that is awesome that you said that, and i picked up on the connection. I actually considered trying to make a stellaris-like album this year myself, because the soundtrack is so good, but I went in a different direction. You seem to be really nailing that stellaris sound though! Yeah i can't wait for the 2.0 update either, of course i will try not to play it to much until fawm is over... what other games are you into right now? Feel free to add me on steam if you want, spazm.
I was just thinking, most games i turn off the music after a few hours and just put other music on in the background, but stellaris has kept my interest enough to keep listening to that music over and over in game. That is an endorsement!
Edit: i couldn't remember what my steam name was
Damn, thanks so much for that comment on liriope... my favorite so far this FAWM!
Hey, thanks for the comments! I will have to check out your stuff when I get a chance!
Thanks for the note and congratz. It's not a record... well I hit 14 on the 17th of February. That *might* be a record. But I had over/at least 28 songs one year so..... Kinda wanting to hit 28 this year as a goal, but we'll see. I'll be back to listen to more of your songs.
Oh must just be a problem for us PA "associates"!
Sorry i mean at work.
Oh awesome! I'm happy the Fermi Paradox is your overall concept and am looking forward to more. In a similar vein, last year I was unknowingly yet heavily influenced after finishing Sagan's Cosmos book. I love this stuff.
More! More! More!
Thanks, man, that arp is from my Prophet 08. Love that synth!
Thx a lot for comments on Hangscape!
Thanks for dropping by my profile. I am back this year. I almost didn't do it this time, but i figured i had to really try since 2008 was my starting year. Looking forward to see what you come up with this year!
Allo! I will be lurking, but sadly not much writing.
Just listened to the new single (?), great songs. Looking forward to this year's stuff!
I'm back, I think. At least I'll be cheering you on from the sidelines.
I will be back this year to check out your songs of course!
Hey Kolton, thanks for stopping by. Looking forward to your creative contributions this year!
... maybe? It's outside my comfort zone, and that's a good thing. I feel like the stuff I've been making for the past few years is all a bit samey. Time to try something completely different, and if it's a bit silly, so much the better.
So you're in KC and I'm in CoMo and we've still not met. How is this possible?
Congratulations on 10 Years of FAWM, Kolton!! I won't be doing any writing this year (for real, this time) but I will check in at points to see how my favorite FAWMers (that includes you!) are doing.
Fire up the synths! Turn all the knobs!
Except main volume; leave that one alone
Welcome back to you too!
10 years??!! Happy FAWMiversary milestone! That's awesome! Best of luck to you during FAWM 2018!
Yeahhhh boyeeeeee 😁
Dude I've been listening to so much Russian Hardbass. I don't even know why.
