hi! i run FAWM (mostly). i'm a science nerd and pop music junkie who grew up in the bluegrass, went to school in the tundra, and now i work in steeltown. i've been in bands in all of those places. for the 9-to-5 thing, i'm the research director at duolingo (https://research.duolingo.com) and do AI stuff.


before COVID lockdown i owned one hardware synth, no MIDI cables, and no plugins. over the past 10 months i've... started a collection. so i hope to start making better use of them for FAWM this year. in particular: some dawless live-jamming and baroque-pop orchestrations. we'll see!

    Always been fascinated by NLP, took a killer Michael Collins course on Coursera when it first launched but I feel like I'm a stats junkie who had to earn a living before I really appreciated the beauty of math.

    TLDR; Longtime listener, first time wall-poster. Thank you for FAWM.

    I owe a lot of happiness on your incessant upkeeping of the site and everything around. I hope you get to make some songs this year.

    Hi, I downloaded the demo of Amplesound ABU as per your post in the VST thread and yeah, it sounds real nice in general but the amount of buzz/rattle on some of the low notes (F and G in particular) seems excessive. Shame because otherwise its great.

    Alright that @burrsettles. No sneaky lack of posting this year, eh? Watching you.
