Artist Bio

Influences:   Chill Step, Trip Hop, Tribal Trap, Deep House, Chillgressive, Chill Hop, Electrostep, Psytrance, Baladi, musical scores, Industrial, EBM, Hard Rock, 90s and 00's Alternative Rock, international sounds, ambient.

A little mad, a little eccentric, and never taking myself too seriously. Artist, poet, philosopher, pagan.

I think this year I am going to try using some of my instruments instead of a crapella, and I don't plan on doing another 60 songs! ha!
Let's see, I've got a slide whistle, a djembe, a tambourine, some shakers and maracas, and this neat little balaphon that's kinda like a xylophone only it's little and wooden with bowls under the keys. I may even pull out the washboard, the spoons, crystal glasses, blow into a bottle, whatever it takes. ... SO we shall see where that goes.

Constructive criticism is always, always, valued! Help me learn! (I don't have a clue, hehe) ...
Beware the super rough demos 😉

Just for fun! I post my work under creative commons.

Always up for a collab, unconditional FAWM love!

    Hi! Hadn’t forgotten you! Placeholder set.

  • @postcardhelicopters  Feb 25

    Ooo! The track sounds really cool! It's ready to post, as far as I'm concerned! 😀

  • @tunecat  Feb 22

    Hi.. Don't worry about resending files. I will do something creative with what you have sent exactly as is.. As long as you're ok with that. Might involve some kind of collage effect. I haven't started in truth.. but looking forward to it.

  • @tunecat  Feb 21

    hi there. Thanks for the stems. Got them. Would you mind maybe sending the BPM or redoing the stems so they start from the beginning of the song (makes aligning everything a lot quicker.). Or perhaps I'm missing something.. I've been struggling with a cold for past few days so not so quick at the moment.. All the best. Oh, and thanks for the nice comments 😀

  • @tunecat  Feb 20

    Hey there. Can you send me the stems (i.e.. the voices on separate tracks.. ) Can definitely do something with one of your needs collab - e.g. rituals.. or something new - whatever really: but I'd prefer to have the vocals so that I can do stuff with them. (Uh.. you don't mind if I do things like loops, transpose and stuff do you?? ) I like the accent and the vocal quality. Cool.

  • @cnidaria  Feb 19

    Cool, I’ll just do it as a separate song so both versions can be memorialized. And yeah, I’d rather do it all myself. I’ve got lots of plans for this one! I’ll just post it when it’s ready, hopefully in the next couple days.

  • @cnidaria  Feb 19

    Sweet! I really love those lyrics.

    Okay questions. Would you be upset if I changed the key? I’ll keep the melody for sure. And are you okay with me doing the whole recording? Or did you want to do the vocals on this version too?

  • @cnidaria  Feb 19

    Hey! Could I try and set Avalon's Hinkypunk to music?

  • @moonraccoon  Feb 18

    Fitting in the oblique sheeple reference was fun 😀 and I'm glad you dig it. Could the song use to be a bit faster, do you think?

  • @dianaviney Feb 2018

    Thanks for your nice comment on whiskey love. Cheers!

  • @jibbidy34  Feb 2018


    Congratulations Centurion Soldier! You wrote 100 comments for your fellow FAWMers!! You made this place even better. You took your time to listen to other people's songs and you have 100 thank you's from all of them and from me! Here’s your badge. Excellent work and keep busting’ those zongs!!

  • @defaultdave  Feb 2018

    Thanks for Swinging by and listening to “Shuttering up || Shutting down”. I like your train analogy, but in this instance would be more that the narrator is the Train, he’s rusted to the track, and being used for spare parts.

  • @cts  Feb 2018

    I would need your vocal track, please! 😀

  • @cnidaria  Feb 2018

    Thanks for the comment on Fancy Car. I love seeing the way these things unfold. Also, good eye spotting “merry war” as one of the best lines in there, since I borrowed that phrase from Shakespeare!

  • @lanasolyluna Feb 2018

    Thank you so much for your comment. Going to listen to your stuff soon. Quite a prolific FAWM 😀

  • @yam655 Feb 2018

    Shortly after I recorded "What the heck was his name again?" I slept for 12 hours. I think this may explain why some of the tracks felt so weak. Still, though, there were a few (like the ones you mentioned) that turned out nicely. 😀

  • @sunnymae  Feb 2018

    Hey Visibly Distorted. Thanks for busting my Zong Skirmish / bad ad song. Thanks for the heads up I just added it to that forum. Well I've got some catching up to do you are a very prolific. Going to go listen to more of your stuff!!

  • @yam655 Feb 2018

    Regarding my missed skirmish, I didn't have one picked out. My alarm (that was muted thanks to Do Not Disturb on my phone being set for "Total Silence") was set to wake me a few minutes early. I was just going to head to Titular and look for something juicy. My later skirmish -- the "herding kittens" one -- was an inspired title/theme due to my children being awake.

  • @arthurrossi Feb 2018

    I would like to thank you very much for your beautiful comment! I was very happy to read it! 😀

  • @acousticmaddie  Feb 2018

    Exactly, every relationship must pass trough those social media things. 😀 Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

  • @mungus  Feb 2018

    Thanks for listening, glad you liked it, I enjoy tracks the keep folk on their toes

  • @moonraccoon  Feb 2018

    Yes! I was a dedicated Adbusters reader for about a year, till it stressed me out too much. I've been a Buy Nothing Christmaser since about '04 😁

  • @syni Feb 2018

    Thanks very much for listening! ^.^ I'm glad you liked the stereo manipulation; I was skeptical about doing it as exaggerated as I did haha!

  • @idonotlikepeas Feb 2018

    Thanks for the comment! If you're serious about adding some electronic string instruments, the program I used for mine is actually a free thing called MuseScore (https://musescore.org/en). I've also used one called OpenMPT (https://openmpt.org/), which operates on different principles. Hope you find something that works for you!

  • @cnidaria  Feb 2018

    Thanks for your comment on The Perfect Fool. I am a bit of a fantasy nerd and have played my fair share of D&D (among other table top games), so that type of imagery does have a way of creeping into my lyrics when I least expect it to.

  • @johnhudome  Feb 2018

    Thanks for your comments on Rock It Out,

  • @corinnelucy  Feb 2018

    Hey! Patreon is a sort of subscriber platform. It's like Kickstarter, but instead of people donating towards one big project, they subscribe to whatever you regularly create. So you might release one song a month to your Patrons (or more... or less... or any other art form), and they each get to decide how much they want to give you. It has a nice kind of "screw the labels" feel about it. 😁

  • @moonraccoon  Feb 2018

    Hello Jacki, I'm a newb here at FAWM. @ductapeguy recommended I reach out to you, if I find the Wordsmith Muse to be playing shy this month. (I would've left a message the other day, but it felt weird to be a stranger leaving the first message on your soundboard.) Best of luck this month 😀

  • @tuomoh Feb 2018

    Thanks a lot for your feedback! Happy FAWM to you too!

  • @williamhaight Feb 2018

    Thanks for the feedback. I really appreciate it.

  • @lake  Feb 2018

    Thank you!

  • @barbara  Feb 2018

    Hi! Came here to watchlist you because your 3-part FAWMku delighted! Loving your instrument collection too! I posted one from my car once that featured a half-empty bottle of water for percussion and a drinking straw played like a bottle or pan pipe might be, changing the pitch by pinching it at different lengths. Time to play, with the heart of a child!!

  • @ductapeguy  Feb 2018

    Hi Jacki. Save a dance or two for me. I love co-writing with you. Check out @moonraccoon He's a friend of mine from Elmvale. He's also a graphic designer and web cartoonist.
