unpronounceable 21


Somerville USA   Jan 2011

Artist Bio

Influences:   Sound. The books, Magical Mistakes, that one song by Flourescien (Cathy's on crank), and probably you.

It's going to be a busy ass month. I'm preparing to move, and I'm doing that thing where you get all ambitious and work on building a multi-faceted project-based career. Oh, and I need to write/record 34 songs by the end of April. I'm a crazy songwriter 😝

Edit on 2/25: New goal is 21 songs. This number has suddenly become significant to me and I want to challenge myself beyond 14 <3

2/28: Goal met! Huzzah!

    Oh yeah... Watchlist button! Good idea. 🙂
    I believe I recognized your username in the London FOP thread from a song recorded outdoors at a FAWMstock several years ago that moved me though I can't remember the song itself. May have been a female duo. Anyway, I'm glad you were still active in that forum which led me here to hear some more of your creations. I appreciate what you said back to me; I love knowing it landed well. Keep up the beautiful work!
    Though I have no expectations, if you do listen to any of mine from this round, I'd probably nominate "This Alchemy" as my first choice.

  • @yam655  Mar 3

    (With the end-of-FAWM rush, I've been a little late.)
    Congratulations on hitting Century Club! 😀

  • @drivelmonk  Feb 28

    Unpro, wanted to thank you for all your kind words on my stuff. As soon as I finished song 14 tomorrow, I'm going on a listening spree and I'm coming back here. Thank you again.

  • @andrewjtaylor  Feb 26

    Thank you very much for your kind encouragement regarding my song, "People Said!"

  • @negasi  Feb 26

    Hi! Exhausted, but that's pretty much my consistent state so I'd say pretty good! How are you! 😀

  • @yam655  Feb 26

    Re: My "That Need Some" song, while I was singing it, it sometimes felt like I was saying "knee", and the word lost its meaning, and I kept making the sound, (or trying, at least), but context had drifted away.

    The only reason I kept going was because I wanted to make a song at least two minutes long. 😀

  • @debs  Feb 26

    Mistakes? What?! Hahaha!

  • @debs  Feb 26

    Re: "Purpose of You", thank you for getting it, sweetie. Love you. ❤️

  • @theholmesgirl Feb 25

    hey! Thanks for the lovely comment on 'When You're an Introvert and You Suddenly Emerge' - you can definitely put music to it if you want, I love your sound! 😀

  • @weakness Feb 22

    No prob man! I've been loving what I've been hearing so far! I've been alright 😁; I'm hoping to get a fixed computer interface by the end of the month to maybe eek out a quick song!

  • @weakness Feb 21

    My duuuuuuuude its good to hear from you; thank you so much! I'm gonna start listening through your stuff soon; excited to see you made a bunch of songs this FAWM!

  • @leah0k Feb 20

    So not just me, eh? This is good to know 🙃🙂🙃

  • @franny Feb 16

    Thank you for your kind comment. Unfortunately I am not sure how to make it downloadable! Shame on me for that!

  • @adforperu  Feb 15

    Thanks for the comments, and WOW at 12 songs! I've got some major watchlist catching up to do, but I'll get there eventually! 😀

  • @snoozin  Feb 11

    Thank you so much for your feedback on 'Snow Moon' . Great skirmish concept. Wonderful!

  • @squeakmouse73 Feb 11

    I put the demo up for "Here in the Snow, Under the Moon," as you expressed interest in hearing it.

  • @johncrossman  Feb 11

    Hey, yeah, thanks for running the thing. I was on the fence about whether to join late, but I figured I oughta.

  • @yam655  Feb 11

    Seriously, it was minutes before the skirmish and I saw that you'd posted "Safety" and I was like, "Oh, crap. I guess that meeting she had to didn't go so well." Then I read the lyrics! Goodness.

    I'm a fairly introspective person. It helps to understand other people when I understand myself. 😀

  • @squeakmouse73 Feb 11

    Just saying thank you for your encouragement.

  • @mikegtz  Feb 11

    Hey there, good to see you back. Listening to your skirmish song which is hysterical now.

  • @sarahk Feb 9

    Heya! I never came back and told you the rough demo went up for "My Gravitational Getaway" aka the Diet Rite song. https://soundcloud.com/sarah-krause/m...
    Happy listening!

  • @yam655  Feb 8

    I should get some potted plants. I once tried to grow a turnip, because I always wanted to have a pet turnip. But, alas, I wasn't always the best turnip-father, and the seeds never really took off. I've been wanting to try again, though. I'm sure they would enjoy the song. 😀

  • @owl  Feb 8

    aw thanks for the nice comments! I'll be back to listen to some of yours soon, happy FAWMing! 😀

  • @yam655  Feb 7

    I appreciate you, too. <3

  • @kovbleu  Feb 6

    Thank you so much for your comments on "Tattoo" - I really appreciate you listening to it. 😀

  • @adamhill  Feb 6

    Hey you too! I'm good! How are you? Rockin' hard or hardly rockin'? 😝

  • @tiedyehero Feb 5

    jnthornb@gmail.com is my email! I'll do my best to get back to you but my life is about to be pretty crazy for awhile

  • @yam655  Feb 4

    Thanks for the comment on "Space Travel." I said I was trying to stay away from crapcapella this year, I said nothing about actually acquiring real musical skills. 😉 One baby-step removed from crapcapella is all I got. 😀

  • @aprilm Feb 4

    Thanks for checking out my song! I had a great time piecing the loops together and creating something trippy!

  • @mrmule Feb 3

    yeah, Bow with acoustic instruments is about the best thing in the world! I just made some more noise with it! 😀

  • @sarahk Feb 3

    ha! I found you!

  • @leslie  Feb 2

    Have a productive, multi-faceted whirlwind of a FAWM! Crazy songwriters are the best kind.

  • @atitlan Feb 2

    Thanks for the comment. I couldn't seem to work it to a good finishing chord, so went with the solo violin to end - I like your description as 'that poor lonely string'.

  • @stevenwesleyguiles  Feb 2

    I'm gonna be honest...I got a LOT of stuff done today because I took the day off of work. 😀

    I NEED FAWM every year to give me a kickstart on creativity. I love it. So, I've been cranking all day. 😀

  • @arose  Feb 2

    Thanks @unpronounceable for your comment - I fixed the playback so you can go have a listen if you'd like. This is my first year hosting on fawm, so I'm still figuring it out!

  • @notenkraker Feb 1

    Thanks for the reply I will deal out free download links once either februari is over or my flow of inspiration/being inspired is done and I'm ready to convert everything to mp3 and slap some ID3 tags on the tracks 😁. Love you too <3

  • @tiedyehero Feb 1

    I'm willing to try anything! and I need to read up on it again, i've forgotten what the deal is with INFPs

  • @theholmesgirl Jan 30

    I'm glad to hear things are good!! <3 if you want any of my lyrics from this year you're welcome to them 😀

  • @helene  Jan 30

    Welcome back! Happy FAWMing!

  • @dasbinky  Jan 29

    Oh, life. Is bigger. Bigger than you, and you are me, except perhaps in the metaphysical sense that we all are one person, spiritually and if you go back far enough, even physically. It's hard to say really. So I am good, in the sense that we are all good, and bad, in the sense that we are all bad.

    I hope you can lay claim to some part of that continuum too. And may your FAWM do the same.

  • @johncrossman  Jan 29

    Hey there.

  • @adforperu  Jan 28

    Heeeeey, hope you're around this year !

  • @yam655  Jan 28

    I'm glad to see you back as well. 😀

    While this year shouldn't see any crapcapella, this will be a bit of a transitional year for me. I kind of wrote my own software to allow me to insert chords in to my improvised songs. Prior to late-mid December the software didn't exist at all, so it still has some wobbly bits.

    One of the goals of the software is to help me convert my random improvised songs in to proper sheet music. Right now, it'll help normalize the tempo, but the end-goal is to help me write sheet music with variable tempo as well.

    So, yeah. No more crapcapella, but I hope to be leveling up my improvisation skills. More, better, faster. (That's the goal, at least.)

  • @theholmesgirl Jan 2017

    @unpronounceable hey no worries - hope the rest of the year was good for you - everything alright now?
