Influences: Any good music
2018: my 4th FAWM 😀 writing 14+ songs in February is evolving into great habit (you might as well call it addiction 😀 ) 🤘
My 2018 FAWM resolutions:
- write and record 14 songs 😀 (what else !??!!)
- get a lot better at commenting
- not overusing smileys (I will again fail with this one... 😀 )
Reaper, Kontakt (new), Strobe2, midi keyboard, NI "The Giant" piano and (new) Balinese Gamelan 😀, 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 @feeslip58 and
@audrey also here http://patpatpro.com
2017: My third FAWM, new song count record (21), less BiaB and more building backing tracks with midi, vst and drum loops 😀 which feels even like making MY OWN music 😀 And we had a gorgeous German FOP, hope to see you again this 2018!
2016: My second FAWM 😀 😀 Another 14 songs. Met some wonderful FAWMers in NYC at Mike’s place. 😀
2015: My first FAWM 😀 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!!!
Thanks for the skirmish and your usual comments "Tom'ish" is that German? If you want more suffering the rough demo is up. 😀

oh-ow, you got mail! 😉
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!
Hi, Anne! Thanks for the belated hello. This is an even later one. 😀
Glad to see you're almost at 14, with plenty time left.
I love your zodiac skirmish prompt idea! Nice choice!
I must be a fire pig! It does kinda describe me tbh 😁 ya learn something new everyday. Thanks for the awsome skirmish!
Done 😀 I'm excited!
OK I have some lyrics for you finally! How shall I share them? Post as a new song?
Oh dear I am struggling already. Is it cheating if you give me a prompt?!
Hi! 😀 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! 😁
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.
There are not a lot of strip bars where I live. 😀 and Maxton was even quieter.
Thank you for listening to my skirmish song! 😊Good to be a-skirmishing zusammen again noch dieses Jahr
Thanks Anne for including me on the morph chain. I shall look on the form. You are the best! Have a great FAWM 2018!
A lovely delicate start to your FAWM adventure.
Hi Anne. Good to see you back. Looking forward to hearing your new songs this year. Happy FAWMing
Danke! Dir auch eine feine Zeit hier 😀
then I'll tell you when I have the lyrics so we can start giving it life, yeah? 💕
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. 😀
hello there, random collab partner! how should we start this thang? 😃
Thanks! Same to you 😀
Hey SuperSkirmish (Feb 2/3) host! I just posted my skirmish notice so if you want to use it feel free to,
1) copy/paste its title into your new post and change all pertinent info in the title
2) copy/paste its body into your new post and change all pertinent info in the body
Still nice to meet another fellow Japanese-speaking FAWMer! Looking forward to your work!
Hallo! Ich wünsche Dir einen wundervollen Februar!
And to you! Thanks for stopping by!
Hi Anne, welcome back! I'm looking forward to hearing your new songs!
Hallo Anne, danke für Dein freundliches Willkommen und die hilfreichen Tipps zur Feedback-Steigerung. Ich wünsch Dir viel Muße.
Hello Anne, hope you have a good FAWM, and achieve your goals, except the smileys, as they're cute/
Thank you for your warm welcome Anne. Happy Winter.
Welcome Anne, good luck in February.
Hiya Anne! Happy FAWMing!
Sooo good to see you back! Have a great FAWM! 😀
Hallo Anne! Happy FAWMing
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 😀 ) . 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.
