Influences: Indie rock music from the 90s onwards
Welcome to my profile and to FAWM 2020.
Happy to be a part of this community, see all of you again, and get to know new people. Since I discovered FAWM in 2014, February has become my favorite month of the year.
So, for those who come across my page for the first time: I am a guitar and bass player residing in Berlin, Germany.
I play in a band, which is called JaaRi. Find and like us here: https://www.facebook.com/jaariberlin/
We released an album last year, which you can listen to here: https://smarturl.it/jaari-thefullrange
So what up for this year? My plans are:
* Write more songs on bass guitar
* Write lyrics in German. This is something I could almost never pull off up to now and used to avoid. I have never been a fan of songs in my native language, about 98 % of music in German is crap, and the language itself is pretty awkward to fit to melodies. Nevertheless, we decided to write the next JaaRi songs in German, since @jonasmarr1983 and me have too much of an accent to sing English convincingly. So there I am. At least I discovered I can translate songs so I don't have to start from scratch. Let's see if I can succeed.
For those who are interested:
MacBook Pro, ca. 2012
Addictive Drums 2
Focusrite Scarlett Solo (2nd Gen)
Ibanez guitar Roadstar II RG450, ca. 1986
Marathon Bass guitar, ca. 1994
Rode NT-1A Microphone
Nothing fancy, but sufficient
I released my album Secular which was my big project for FAWM 2017.
I just started a new job this month and am unsure how much I will be able to participate. So far I'm frantically recording in the evenings. But towards the end of the month it looks like I'll be abroad.
UPDATE 02/11: Aaand it slows down. Family and work take their tolls. Haven't recorded a thing in 4 days now. Bummer.
UPDATE 02/26: Thank you all people who left comments with me being absent. I will get back to you in March. I will just have to accept that this is not my year. Birthdays, concerts and now this business trip which requires me to be drunk every night make it impossible to write and record.

Ok whatever. So I'm a freak. Freaks shape the world.
Finally checked out that video link...Knorkator Mich verfolgt meine eigende Scheiße.
Does that make me weird? A freak? a pathetic numbskull? All of the above? What can I say but AMEN. Thankyouthankyouthankyou!
Thanks man. Production-wise, I've just spent a lot of time preparing templates. I know what sound a song is going to have, so pick an appropriate template and go from there - aside from the vocals, it's easy to get a workable mix without having to do much work at all.
Hey, danke fürs kommentieren!
Thank you so much!!! <3
Thank you so much!!! <3
Ich nutze hauptsächlich Spitfire libraries, besonders die performance legatos von Symphonic Stringsbund Chamber Strings. Dazu Die Symphonic Reihe der Woodwinds und Brass section und ab und zu die Solo Strings für den Charakter.
Ich verbringe aber die meiste Zeit damit es wirklich realistisch klingen zu lassen. Dauern tut das je nach Komposition 5-15h.
Mein workflow ist aber ziemlich streamlined mittlerweile. Für Dream of Solitute hab ich für alles weniger als 5h gebraucht. ✌️🤗
Thank you for the kind words on my track! I appreciate you taking the time to listen for leaving such encouraging feedback 😀
Thanks for your comment on ‘Night Feeding’ - especially like the idea of one night blending into another!
Thank you so much for your comments! It is my first time doing the FAWM and given the quality of its community, I'm positive I will participate again next year!
Thank you for all the listens & comments. I truly appreciate it! If you're interested, you can find out more about Jeskola Buzz at www.jeskola.net
See You In The Shadows…
Thanks! Yeah, we kept an eye on our youngest, but YouTube reacted pretty quickly to remove the Elsa stuff once it hit the headlines.
You're too funny. I will definitely check that link out later....catching up on reciprocating. Thanks!!
Well I definitely condone and support puking in one's mouth. It recycles food and assists with environmental concerns. Or something like that.
Thanks for the comments on “Underwater,” glad you liked it. I don’t let it bother me if a chord progression has been used before, as long as it only serves as inspiration-fodder and doesn’t sound *too* similar overall. Bound to happen. 🙂
Thanks for the kind words on, "High Tide". Appreciate the visit 😀
Liked your Secular album. Especially Bare--well done!
Haha, that is SUCH a classic dead person move
Thank you for your kind Word on Du bist auf glas. And for The suggested correction <3
I look forward to hear what you Come up with.
Thank you for listening to Love on a stick. I think the ‘exit pop’ is also my fave part! 😁 I can’t take any credit, all Pete’s production!
Schön, dich hier wieder anzutreffen, und ich freue mich schon auf deine neuen Lieder, nachdem ich letztes Jahr leider hier nicht anwesend sein konnte. Wünsche dir einen kreativen und unterhaltsamen Februar!
Superb to be back and see so many talented familiar faces 👍. Can’t wait for your output matey . Let’s gov
Happy FAWM friend
Dude can not wait to get stuck in. Have a fantastic fawm . Can’t wait to here some non Thai sounds , from the lovely Thailand 🤣
I just listened to "Cape". What a fun 90's alt-rock sound!
Wünsche dir auch viel Spaß!
Fuzz for the win - I *love* that crackly, breaking up fuzz on your album. 😀
I don't know what happened to me and the most recent Desert Sessions album, I noticed it on release and then somehow failed to listen to it. Now added to a playlist before I forget again!
Very nice indeed!
Zuerst dachte ich Martha aber dann war’s doch Colours das mir am besten gefiel, neben allen anderen!
Die Geschichten der Bahnreisenden kam auch ganz gut rüber.
Thx for the music!
Hi, ich habe deine Lyrics Kommentare gelesen. Bilderbuch zum Beispiel finde ich, haben sehr gute Lyrics. Und sie mischen auch sehr clever englische Wortfetzen oder anderes ein, wie die Kids halt.
Aber der eigentliche Grund warum ich hier zu dir schreibe ist dein FAWM Name. Ich weis was ein ‘ampers and’ ist, aber ich lese trotzdem immer amper sandman... also werde ich jetzt rüber auf Spotify switchen und mal reinhören ob ihr lullaby’s singt und spielt... und ich mach natürlich einen Marker hier um dir zuzuhören.
Viel Vergnügen im Februar. Grüße aus Wien.
Hey there. I added you to the spotify playlist. Cool!
*CTS tossing up the peace sign* - Whussup?
have the best FAWM this year!
Looking forward to your songs again this year! I need to practice my German, so your German songs will be welcome.
Your English singing has always been cool to my ear.
Btw, I think that your English singing is good. It never entered my mind about your accent until you mentioned it on your bio.
I can completely relate because my wife got me that record as a gift and I listened to it twice until yesterday. I was so let down because I loved every one of their albums before. I first got into them when they opened for Fugazi....what a lineup! I think I saw 8 shows of that tour.
