Influences: Sound. The books, Magical Mistakes, that one song by Flourescien (Cathy's on crank), and probably you.
Last FAWM was amazing. It was so needed and life-changing.
This year, I have a very full grad school and life schedule in February, but I know low pressure getting myself to participate will feed my soul and make me happy. I'll be as here as I can!
*edit 1/19: I'm done for this year -- just too much on my plate and I stopped doing the songs for myself. Self care ftw. Looking forward to commenting my ass off on others' songs after February.
Beep-bup-beep! My communication device, to which you refer as 'vocoding', just happens when I try to make sound. Bup!
I'm super stoked you heard the B-52s influence in "The Lady". The CFEGFF tuning i used was a modification of Ricky Wilson's CFxxFF tuning, so that was very much intentional 😀
Thanks for your kind words about Lady Corner. I figure that's the kind of song that could go on for a while as you introduce people who come in and out of the Lady Corner. Good skirmish!
Thanks to Dutch Cassidy for turning me on to FAWM.
My approach to these types on endeavors is to write all of the songs first. Then I play them until I feel as though I can give a good performance. Then I record the basic tracks for all of the songs. When I'm done with that I add the overdubs and then do a rough mix. If the rough mix is good, I'll post it. If not, I'll live with it for a couple of days and then do a re-mix before I post. The result being I post all fourteen songs at the end of the month. It's not likely that I'll post anything before then.
You too homie! Cant wait to hear your stuff!
I think I managed to pronounce your handle.
If you feed your soul....I want to hear it!
Here's to a successful run of jingles this FAWM! Thanks for the inspiration, and I hope I'm up to the task ahead 😀
Hi there! So nice to get your welcoming message. I hope that your low key approach will allow you to create something you'll treasure. I hope the same for me! But the ridiculously good camaraderie is its own good medicine too!!
Just realize I never answered your question. I'm working out if/what to do about the fawmcast. There is a thread that I'll update once I know.
Hiya, Good to see you here! I've been better, but I'm here, at least. going to give it another go.
Hey, Julie. Another year. Glad you're here.
I'm hoping you find the time to do some songs this year because I love hearing your stuff. 😀
Hey there Julie, busy life, grad school, that's great. Good to see you back!
Nothing planned right now, but you never know... 😃
Wow, I am flattered, thanks!
Let's do this!
Best of luck to you during FAWM 2018!
Hey Julie, hope you're about this year x
