Mainz Germany   Feb 2014

Artist Bio

Influences:   Any good music

2018: my 4th FAWM πŸ˜€ writing 14+ songs in February is evolving into great habit (you might as well call it addiction πŸ˜€ ) 🀘

My 2018 FAWM resolutions:
- write and record 14 songs πŸ˜€ (what else !??!!)
- get a lot better at commenting
- not overusing smileys (I will again fail with this one... πŸ˜€ )

My tools:
Reaper, Kontakt (new), Strobe2, midi keyboard, NI "The Giant" piano and (new) Balinese Gamelan πŸ˜€, some vst from AAS, Andrew White Freya guitar (new), Luna uke, Melodyne (new), Trio band generator (new), a real cowbell (new)

Find me and my songwriting friends Tom @zxcvbnm, Wade
@burnzie1401, Ralph @feeslip58Β and
@audrey also here

My past:
2017: My third FAWM, new song count record (21), less BiaB and more building backing tracks with midi, vst and drum loops πŸ˜€ which feels even like making MY OWN music πŸ˜€ And we had a gorgeous German FOP, hope to see you again this 2018!

2016: My second FAWM πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ Another 14 songs. Met some wonderful FAWMers in NYC at Mike’s place. πŸ˜€

2015: My first FAWM πŸ˜€ had a lot of fun, made it to 14 songs *yeah*, including one skirmish, a collab, a morph and some challenges

2014: Starting from SCRATCH: writing songs, playing guitar, keyboard, learn about music production, theory, ... so basically EVERYTHING, all online mostly on Coursera. Thanks tons to Pat Pattison who’s course and work process guided me to my very first song!

    loved your further instruction on that 'headache' skirmish prompt of 'what color is yours'.. which gave me the idea that i used- thanks!!!

  • @zxcvbnm  Feb 24

    oh-ow, you got mail! πŸ˜‰

  • @kahlo2013  Feb 18

    Wow!!! I am so deeply grateful!! You made the words I wrote come alive so beautifully and perfectly captured the sentiment I was trying to express! It is gorgeous and brought tears to my eyes. Thank you! What an honor to have your music!

  • @iveg Feb 18

    Hi, Anne! Thanks for the belated hello. This is an even later one. πŸ˜€
    Glad to see you're almost at 14, with plenty time left.

  • @cowex  Feb 17

    I love your zodiac skirmish prompt idea! Nice choice!

  • @jibbidy34  Feb 17

  • @tan482  Feb 16

    Done πŸ˜€ I'm excited!

  • @tan482  Feb 16

    OK I have some lyrics for you finally! How shall I share them? Post as a new song?

  • @tan482  Feb 14

    Oh dear I am struggling already. Is it cheating if you give me a prompt?!

  • @tan482  Feb 14

    Hi! πŸ˜€ We have been paired for a random collab! How does this work? Do I just write you some random lyrics and you put them to music? Should I write on a particular topic? This is exciting! 😁

  • @asladders Feb 7

    Hi again! I'd love to collaborate with you. Would you like to take a listen to my (1st ever) FAWM track? I hear keys/keyboard on this one. Love to hear your thoughts!

  • @axl  Feb 5

    Dein Kommentar hat noch eine Erinnerung wachgerufen. Eine Fantasie, die ich als Kind auch hatte, war, ein Loch durch die Erde zu graben bis nach Australien. Hm, vielleicht ist das wirklich was ganz archetypisches.

  • @zxcvbnm  Feb 3

    There are not a lot of strip bars where I live. πŸ˜€ and Maxton was even quieter.

  • @jibbidy34  Feb 3

    Thank you for listening to my skirmish song! 😊Good to be a-skirmishing zusammen again noch dieses Jahr

  • @zxcvbnm  Feb 2

    Thanks @tootoobee I enjoyed using BiaB but have a lot to learn. Your plug in advice will of course be appreciated. πŸ˜€

  • @valeriecox  Feb 2

    Hey hey. You're up on the morph song.

  • @sunnymae  Feb 1

    Thanks Anne for including me on the morph chain. I shall look on the form. You are the best! Have a great FAWM 2018!

  • @pipewrench67  Feb 1

    Guten Morgen

  • @cairobraga Jan 31

    okie dokie. I write in English, Potuguese and Spanish (with Swedish, Catalan and French in progress...). I'll send you lyrics in English, no prob. but if you happen to make some music and want me to put lyrics on it, would also work for me. πŸ˜€

  • @cairobraga Jan 31

    Hallo Anne! Happy FAWMing

  • @andygetch  Jan 2018

    Hi Anne!

  • @ustaknow Jan 2018

    OK, so, hello again and good luck!

    Other, if you remember:
    I'm "ok" with the Trio Pedal, but, eh, --not thrilled. You?

    I'll have to learn how to really simplify my right hand rhythms to get a good drum track, and for the bass I really need to consider skipping some chord modulations since to my ear can cause an out of tune bass line from the Trio.

    That's kind of my fault since I don't really regard carefully what key I am in and do slip in what I think are interesting chords (they are πŸ˜€ ) . So if I want to really use it, I have to "teach" the pedal a simplified chord progression with chord substitutions.

    Sorry to be long there, --not many are really talking about it. I assume happy, or like me... not thrilled but not sending it back either.
