Last year (2019), I worked with my friend Kurt (locally), and we recorded an album that mostly consisted of my viola playing, while he manipulated my sounds in real time with his Eurorack modular synth/effects. We had a few "suites" with multiple movements each.
This year we're going to take that concept and explore it a bit differently, using existing recordings from early 78rpm records, and using them as source material, rather than my viola playing. This will give us more of a variety of sounds and, I think, a sense of nostalgia from the old records. Yet the extent to which we mutate the source sounds into something completely different will lead to a result that doesn't sound much like the raw records, and that sounds different from our other work.
No songs by this fawmer (yet).
Thanks, yours ain't lookin' half bad either! Good luck with putting a new spin on some old records!
this is likely more than you will ever need or want of bulgarian women's choir music.
if it plays in order, the first dozen tracks or so are volume 1 of le mystere des voix bulgares, the original tape i saw in a bargain bin in a music store in the late 80s in nashville.
i likely have a dozen CDs or so at this point, and some tapes that i have no idea where they are, and some downloads as well. that's a link to the motherlode. if you are familiar with the music, the backing vocals of the trio bulgarka on kate bush's the sensual world make a lot more sense.
Glad to see you back! I wish there were more of us in this area!
Woo, congrats on your son! Inspiring no doubt! Looking forward to viola jams! Any new modules you're looking forward to using? This year I'll be trying to use euro in an effects capacity!
I picked up a violin at a garage sale, and for the last week have been practising the bow and intonation - kinda getting there, but lots of screeching - my poor family and neighbourhood. May the themes of 2020 find their way. Good luck!
Hey, happy FAWM. I'll keep an ear out for what you're doing.
Looking forward to more of your amazing songs. Happy FAWMing!
Your music is always unique and interesting!!
Looking forward to hearing more of it this FAWM!!
Congratulations on your son! I did FAWM twice with new sons and it is different, but doable. Sleep will probably be a little short, but that’s FAWM with or without kids. Best wishes to you!
