Personal Pronoun: He/Him

==============================

Candle is something that needs to be experienced.

The music of Candle has been described as Progressive, Psychadelic, Space Rock, and even Experimental. But what Darby, the artist behind the sounds, is really trying to achieve is a connection with every listener. To make those who choose to listen to his music feel something deep within themselves. Something they might not have ever felt before. Or maybe some memory they cherish deeply. The frequencies and moods created with a single guitar are layered in order to paint vistas which hopefully will let the sensations & imaginations of the listeners rejoice in the experience and become an interactive part of the music itself.

So close your eyes, take a deep breath & relax. Let the music touch your soul.

===========================================

2021…

Still in the midst of COVID. Yet somehow still inspired. Got some new toys to play with this year (tho, I sort of gave them a test-drive during 50-90 MMXX & Rocktober MMXX). Still, looking forward to what experiments my Muse takes me on. As always, I follow her direction…

See You In The Shadows…

    Good luck on your stories! I know how you feel. My muse is not able to compose. She's already in mixing mode. Maybe she goes wild with illustration the next months. Who knows which phase comes next? Just use it!

  • @nadine 2 weeks

    Thanks a lot for stopping by 😀 I'm glad you enjoyed my stuff. But the next album will sound completely different with all these collabs. I hope I can take a listen into your things the next weeks. I'm a bit busy with mixing right now, but I already added you to my list.

  • @elesimo  5 weeks

    Hey, @candle! This is the link for the spreadsheet: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1ERr9uH1JXR3msUFbn-ri6FC-2Fq...

    Do you have your master ready?

  • @berni1954  6 weeks

    Like the album cover! Very moody and fits the title.

  • @kanttila  7 weeks

    Thanks so much!!! I really appreciate that!

  • @fuzzy  8 weeks

    Oh yeah, that's a good tune.
    Reminds me a bit of Yoshimi-era Flaming Lips.
    Lots of great layered noise there.
    The weird "broken tape player" effects are the best.

  • @kanttila  8 weeks

    Hey man, I just put my new album out today so I thought I'd link it.

    Ah then yeah I wouldn't of gotten either one of those. Good luck tracking them down.

  • @kathym  Mar 8

    <3 for the thoughtful comment on You Are My Rainbow.

  • @dzdandcunfsd  Mar 7

    You know what. It would probably be a pain to program and integrate, but I bet it would control that Tensor pedal as well and I wouldn't have to use a MIDI keyboard for it and would free up my hands.........Though I'm going to need more feet 🤣 I'll find out from them first. If it doesn't work I bet they'd add it to a future software upgrade for it.

  • @dzdandcunfsd  Mar 7

    That sucks, just talking is at least some comfort to your mom though I'm sure...... even if its small. My grandma passed last year around this time. I was on my way back to Oklahoma for her funeral when things went into lockdown I was on a bus somewhere in between Boston and NYC, didn't think I'd still be here almost a full year later. One of her good friends and neighbor for over 70 years and another lady I've always called grandma broke her hip last night........is out of surgery, and they're at least allowing one person to be in the hospital with her which is a step up from last summer when my mom had a stroke and nobody was allowed inside.

    Just realized I should of asked you as well, but we're apparantly about to be interface twinsies. That seemed about the best deal for the money as I was wanting something with MIDI ins/outs and more than 2 channels..... just for someday when I do finally get that sequencer LOL. I've had several of their mixers in the past and have always been pretty happy with their stuff. Being able to setup from scratch while daunting(or would be to me, but you are used to buzz so might actually be a plus as well especially since you're pretty intimate with it and know what you want)

  • @dzdandcunfsd  Mar 6

    Yeah that's a good idea if you do re-record them, just going ahead and taking on the acoustic takes on a 2nd set. I see your conundrum too because a lot of those songs that would fit perfect on that album kind of got split down the middle about the time your PC gave up its ghost. I've even tried to go back to some of the acoustic songs I loved and tried to add some electric just as backing......sometimes it works, but often I can't even catch enough of that original bug to even make that work. I'm having to get a new interface myself. Mine finally fully fried itself it first started smoking during 50/90 I'm impressed it hung on as long as it did 🤣 even if it has been a static filled mess.

  • @dzdandcunfsd  Mar 6

    🤣 As much as I love your electric stuff I did really enjoy the acoustic. I always find it hard to combine the two things though....

  • @gardeningangel1  Mar 5

    It's been another wonderful FAWM with so many good memories of the year that spawned Slothcore and achieved escape velocity. I've enjoyed your songs so much this year, hoping to do some more listening before the doors close. Thank you for all your kind and thoughtful comments.
    Continue de brûler intensément, chérie bougie. Je te chercherai dans l'ombre.

  • @kathym  Mar 4

    I'm finally catching up on all of the overdue thank you notes for having stopped to consider my song Sweet Louise. I take all comments to heart and truly appreciate everyone's comments. All the love.

  • @erucaesounds  Mar 4

    Hey, thanks so much for all your kind comments on all my songs...... its great to get that feedback, can be quite illuminating.... anyway, thanks again.... see you in 2022!

  • @emkaydeebee  Mar 4

    Ha ha, absolutely!! That’s taken me back, ha ha!

  • @electrocelte  Mar 4

    Hi Darby. Congrats to you on your 58 tunes! #bagmetal is halfway there. Will make some noise when I finally post it!

  • @kanttila  Mar 4

    It's fun to read for sure! The only thing in the Kanttila FM lore (oh God do I have that now) is that Bootlick Company is a new band of young guys. I hate to make corrections for something fun haha but that's what I came up with them as.

    Yes a radio call in blurb would be great. Certainly want to do that and ya that'd be fun if you tried to make a fake band! To me it's an outlet to be crazy and actually do whatever I want. I am more strict on my own music but with my fake bands there is no "you can't do that it's too basic" or "you can't sing about making a Pinterest board of Aina The End!". Instead it is the true freedom for my expression. It is me at my most unhinged musically.

    If you find that wackiness in you during 50/90 harness it! and that's pretty neat with your old band as well! I mean Northern Minnesota is basically Canada anyway so close enough!

    I go by whatever I want to do at that second, so this 50/90 who knows what will transpire for Kanttila FM (I certainly don't).

  • @kanttila  Mar 3

    Big Mac & The Bods, ugh don't make me think of them ever again.

    Pierce Hornblower has never had any of his stories back with real evidence. PiiKKERALA guitarist Castinobeano Castelli disputed a lot of his claims after Hornblower wrote his memoir, "Witness To Rock's End". Hornblower was the kind of guy who pretended he was with the band everywhere he went, even on PiiKKERALA's final tour for Two Big Ones. Hornblower even suggested it was him who played on "Bald Guys Are KGB Spies" and NOT G3 Darnell. You can't fall for his lies!

    Castelli says everything he wrote about that tour was false. He believes Garboläinen was the guy in the security camera footage and wants nothing more than to see his former bandmate behind bars. After all Castelli and every other member of PiiKKERALA was screwed out of royalties by Garboläinen.

    The world may never know the true answer but perhaps one day the truth can finally be told.

    ---------------------------------------

    Thanks for catching up on all my songs and leaving those great comments! I intend to listen to another of your long tunes when I'm in the right mood so I'll let you know that goes.

  • @kanttila  Mar 3

    That was a very controversial blog post you dug up on Bootlick Company. Kanttila FM has received a lot of angry messages from the PiiKs who wanted PiiKKERALA to remain in obscurity forever.

    You are correct that many accuse Slimjam of lying and lots of people have analyzed the security camera footage to tell if it was really Garboläinen who stole the 2X4's. There is a rift among the PiiKs and many do indeed think Slimjam lied to police when he told them it was the former PiiKKERALA vocalist. Last summer's Kanttila FM broadcasts had a lot of people mentioning the band again so it's not unreasonable to think Slimjam lied and the media rolled with it to frame Garboläinen and create a frenzy around the hunt for him.

    The PiiKs often feel like a holier than thou bunch who's pride was remembering an old band no one else did. The unofficial PiiKKERALA message board that was started in 2002 is even locked to the public and requires an annual membership fee to register. Now that people are talking about PiiKKERALA it's like their little club has been invaded.

    There is a theory that the reason Garboläinen is wanted is for fraud after collecting money from fans for a 10 CD boxset of demos that was promised in the late 90's on his Geocities website. More recently he had a Kickstarter for a line of official t-shirts that also never came out. The answers are as of yet unanswered.

  • @caterwauler Mar 2

    This sounds more like the Joseph Arthur who made me buy my first looper : https://youtu.be/DHqDEbJXvw8
    (Btw, thanks for getting me back into his stuff, haha. I had almost forgotten about him until I read your soundboard post.)

  • @caterwauler Mar 2

    Well, you make me blush. It makes me very happy to know I've helped you achieve your methodology.
    By the way, have I ever told you where my live methodology came from? In my early guitar years, I saw Joseph Arthur performing live. By then (around 1995, I think), he was using several delay pedals to loop stuff. That was amazing, I was blown away. Never got to buy any delay pedal though. Then I saw him again around 2000, and this time, he was using the newly released Boss RC-20. I took the jump, bought myself one - then a duplicate a little later.
    Check Jo if you don't know him, he's amazing - less experimental/crazy than in the old days (undocumented, unfortunately), but he's definitely a master in the art of live looping.

    "I was sad you were not posting your usual songs"
    Thanks, but what are my "usual songs" at the moment? I'm in one of these hazy periods where I'm not sure what I want to do musically (and as always in this kind of situation, I naturally turn towards catcore, the place where my musical identity doesn't matter). I've been so many different musicians, explored so many methodologies, there are moments where I no longer know what direction I want to take, haha. It's not a writer's block, I'm just passing through a grey area.

    Anyway... Merci à toi aussi, merci infiniment. Continue d'être toi-même, et de faire ce que tu fais. Tu as du génie.
    *Hugs*

  • @caterwauler Mar 2

    I realize I never seem to be able to word how much your repeated compliments touch me. All your kind comments, forum posts referring to me or to my work, and warmhearted encouragements *really* mean *a lot* to me.
    You're one of the few artists I know on this site who keep surprising me each FAWM after all those years, because you never cease to renew your own genre. You're inventive, audacious *and* enthusiastic, I love that. + You're one of the broadest-minded musician I've ever met, no wonder you always find something to fuel your creative fire.
    I never pondered over who my favorite fawmers are ; my watchlist is ridiculously long now (I'm sure you know what I mean). This year being a blank one for me, I barely logged in with my account. I followed the challenge remotely, from Sirius' account.
    He has four people in his watchlist, and you're one of them. ❤️

  • @heuristicsinc  Mar 1

    Sorry, I tried to add to your song but the sounds I came up with jiust weren't working... maybe next year!

  • @dzdandcunfsd  Mar 1

    Well I'm done, I got that cover of your tune I've already finished just haven't listened to yet and I'm tired, and a collab coming in. Your last skirmish has you one ahead(if you're done) LOL. I still couldn't hang even after you had a laptop meltdown and broke all your strings 🤣🤣. Great fawm you had though!

  • @fuzzy  Feb 28

    Aw shucks, thanks!

  • @dzdandcunfsd  Feb 28

    Hah! That looks more fun than what I was picturing.

  • @fuzzy  Feb 28

    Of course I'll be at 50/90!!! 😀

  • @fuzzy  Feb 28

    You have been very prolific this month!!
    Thanx for the great music and the wonderful comments!

  • @dzdandcunfsd  Feb 28

    They actually have a bandcamp list of stuff. I'll probably submit one or two. I'd definitely love to get on one of their product testing lists!! I started trying to work some magic yesterday 🤣 they're out of Detroit and seem pretty decently run. They were more than patient with me when I didn't understand all the technical MIDI jargon in the 34 page densely packed manual and got right back to me and with someone that spoke my language of buzzes and beeps and thingamajigs but can trigger it now with either my little 2 octave controller(that I next to never use) or the drum kit even. So yeah you were right I loved it before I even got it 🤣 I bet it would even work with an xbox controller much like you recently found out buzz will.

  • @kanttila  Feb 28

    Ya it's not great here for sure. It's been a period of lost history for me since October. Now it's the end of February...what happened. I'm not surprised about Lockdown 3 I was more surprised we went out of Lockdown 2. I'll never get a haircut at this rate! You stay safe to.

  • @dzdandcunfsd  Feb 28

    🤣 I use that roughly one chord progression all the time as well! (one could argue its 4 or so, but nah it's just one to me LOL) Sometimes I get to feeling all jazzy and add one or two more. Those "overused" ones I think are so for a reason, they're a ton of fun to play.

  • @kanttila  Feb 28

    It's nice to hear your vocals on all these tracks as well!

    Congrats on your win and then some. It's amazing to me that you can smash so many songs out. Like 52!!! and you have all those long ones as well which makes it even cooler. I'm going to listen to "Sanity's Lapse" right now while I play COD actually, I got the time so let's go...

  • @beat  Feb 27

    No worries me musical friend who shines so bright from out of the penumbra. I’m not as busy as you are, am just happy to have made me 14 this year for the first time since the start in 2015 so I enjoy listening trough my watchlist. And it’s great fun, cos the ideas and musical perceptions out here on FAWM are so manifold that this FAWM thing should be a national monument in every country around the world!
    Enjoy being and cheers from Vienna.

  • @dzdandcunfsd  Feb 27

    I've heard bits and pieces of those Conet recordings, pretty cool stuff! I was unaware they all got packaged together. I'll have to check that out as well.

  • @mikeskliar  Feb 27

    used your 'slothcore' idea (was that you?) for a skirmish, which oddly enough had the prompt 'candle'! https://fawm.org/songs/123109/

  • @dzdandcunfsd  Feb 27

    😉 will have to do that tomorrow, if not tonight I do still have some hours to stay awake. Might try to knock it out between skirmishes LOL

  • @dzdandcunfsd  Feb 27

    Thanks! and yeah that words are hard one, both parts of that one remind me of two totally different songs, both from around that era and I can't quite place either one. Those things usually don't bother me, but that one is going to at least until I figure out what songs it was.

  • @dzdandcunfsd  Feb 27

    🤣 I was about to do a rendition of your light at the end of the tunnel, but no way I could of purposefully nailed the journey that one takes LOL.

  • @captainvulpine  Feb 26

    Yezzir, let's go Muzzard hunting! I can't commit to a full on production, but send me watchyer cookin' up!

  • @dzdandcunfsd  Feb 26

    Oh yeah, man I'd hope you weren't hating the songs, just meant more of what lead you to having to do it! Computer still jacked up? 🤣 If anything its put you on a faster pace LOL. I might still come from behind, depending on how many skirmishes I do this weekend LOL. I've only got one more collab I'm working on. I sidetracked myself with the other one today, but was worth it.

  • @dzdandcunfsd  Feb 26

    Thanks! I'm quite happy how those two came out. I think I'll run that second one through the tape speed pedal and give it a nap or two later. It might be just a touch over 40bpm too, but I say close enough when it gets some naps LOL

  • @fuzzy  Feb 24

    Just now taking a short dip in the 2Ply pool; interesting stuff, thanx for pointing it out to me.
    I'll have to revisit it after FAWM when my ears aren't so tired. 😀
    Presently digging Spiral Spectacular.
    The 2Ply page is now bookmarked on my browser.

    Whoa, Darkness killed your laptop??
    Beware when you summon it, you never know what might happen!
    Glad you found a way to keep fawming! As us cats say, "meow mrr, hhhw mmh." =^.^=

  • @kanttila  Feb 24

    Oh no, R.I.P. to your laptop. Ya that's fine if it takes a while I don't want to rush this album out. I did change up my ideas a bit so I'm thinking I'll use your piece as the outro. I'll make use of it somewhere!

    Thanks for your comment also!

    and just the same I haven't forgotten about the song you sent me. I just can't seem to get a vocal melody down! I will keep trying and hopefully have it up before the end of FAWM.

  • @tukayandryan  Feb 24

    Thank you so much for your lovely comments on our first go at a skirmish 😀

  • @gb9  Feb 23

    Thank you so much for your kind comments on 'Aces', it needs a lot of reworking. Thank you for your kindness. 😀

  • @heuristicsinc  Feb 22

    Cool, did you have a BPM and/or key for V.I. or is it more freeform?

  • @dzdandcunfsd  Feb 21

    I'm aiming for a triple fawm at least. I think that's probably in the bag especially if I do some more skirmishes. Missed this last one, I figured food was a little more important, but wow that was a great prompt, I wish I hadn't read it already hahah might have to use that for a non-skirmish something.

  • @phoenixash Feb 21

    There is resisting the darkness, accepting the darkness and embracing the darkness, people often think that if they stop resisting they will end up embracing it and falling apart, but no, when you don't resist it and accept you learn how to work with it and this happens beautifully in your music, what you feel is darkness is just your sensibility and this is your friend and most powerful instrument. You are a beautiful human, who creates beautiful things, yes, dark things but all images are a contrast of dark and light, be proud

  • @fuzzy  Feb 21

    The "No Pussyfooting" thing is why there's a massive corporate restructuring of the Remix Dept.
    They've all been fired. 😀

  • @dzdandcunfsd  Feb 21

    Still haven't listened to the Pennyroyal one, will probably do 2 to 3 more tracks tomorrow and mash them all together and do another no-listen challenge and see how that turns out haha.

  • @dzdandcunfsd  Feb 21

    Thanks as always for the listens and comments. I just listened back to that crack one too and actually really did enjoy it. It had no right to turn out as well as it did 🤣 I did vox and drums together and was entangled and fighting cords or playing with one stick as I kept dropping them the entire time hahaha.

  • @fuzzy  Feb 20

    Well in my opinion you can never have too many songs called "Rectal Anarchy".

  • @iwilleatyou Feb 19

    Only 33 songs? What's wrong?

  • @dzdandcunfsd  Feb 19

    Oh I see it now.........similar thoughts? hahaha great title!

  • @dzdandcunfsd  Feb 19

    Good! I need a break, it's getting extra weird over here even by my standards, just finished some weirdo alien made-up language thing I'm going to try and talk @anaezia into singing on. Bless her poor heart hahaha. Think I need to put some things down and step away slowly 🤣🤣

  • @dzdandcunfsd  Feb 18

    Haha! yup that pic works! Parsnip Decadence? 🤣 Are they carrots? are they potatoes? beets? 🤣

  • @dzdandcunfsd  Feb 18

    Surprise! Feel free to change any of that you want, tags/title/tax 😉 etc. etc. I'll email you a .wav if you want to drastically change anything as well.

  • @fuzzy  Feb 18

    Thinking about your OX/XO bread tab; I have a second hand ukulele that a previous owner painted their initials on with sparkly gold paint. You hold it one way and it says "CJ". Turn it 90 degrees and it says "uh".

    Also with Catherine Wheel / Fripp, as great as it is, when heard with the song that leads into it on the album makes it even better.

  • @fuzzy  Feb 15

    The backing track on the Hank Williams story is actually the modified sounds of Spring Peepers I recorded a few years ago.
    You get a few thousand of those little frogs singing and it's near deafening.

  • @gardeningangel1  Feb 15

    A glowing comment on my #slothcore song from the founder of slothcore!?!! I am honored. It is delightful to see everyone (slowly) running with your offhand idea. Long live Slothcore!

    Chrome by Catherine Wheel is a very good album. Also Ferment.

    btw my friend, have you ever heard Fripp by Catherine Wheel? I think you'd like it.

  • @sunfire Feb 15

    Hey! Keep up the good work on your music and thank you for commenting on my lyrics! Cheers.

  • @trolls2 Feb 15

    'breaking the waves' is a very intense film watch it when you're in a really good mood!!! Lars Van Triers also directed a film that Bjork starred in.

  • @mccannrs Feb 14

    Thanks for the comment on "Doves Make Love", I'm glad you enjoyed the hidden message behind my song, lol!

  • @sirius Feb 14

    Thanx for the comments and compliments. We had a lot of fun combining slothcore and catcore! =^.^=
    And congrats on a super prolific month already! 24, wow! 😮

  • @dzdandcunfsd  Feb 14

    Ugh! Don't you have some kids to be watching at the pool or something! Just posting away 😏 hahahaha, okay time for the long one, before I stay away from the site for a day to save my eyesight 😁

  • @dzdandcunfsd  Feb 13

    It was just that initial loop that sounded very ducky 😁

  • @dzdandcunfsd  Feb 13

    Haha, I was afraid of that! once I did that last guitar line on it. That might just have to be my new "method" 😁 I did finally listen to it today. I probably will get to messing with it some, there's one guitar line in there that was pretty nice IMO that got buried in the blind mix of it all haha. I'm saving your big 20+ minute one for later 😁

  • @spazsquatch Feb 13

    Oh yeah, I'm digging this. I want to build a cottage inside that guitar tone and vacation there when I need to get away. 😉

    If you could drop that .wav into my in-box I would appreciate it. I want to do a little tweaking near toward the build at the end of the song because the tone is part of the character arc and I want it to change at that point where the memories come back.

    Plus, if I do get to the end of this project, elements are going to come back into the narrative and rather than bother you with it, I can recycle... err, create a motif.

    Great contribution. Thanks.

    Also, do I have your permission to put your work on my Soundcloud page?

  • @fuzzy  Feb 12

    It was a surprise to me!
    @ttg105 didn't let me know he was even doing it.

  • @fuzzy  Feb 12

    Hey, check this out; https://fawm.org/songs/116886/

  • @dzdandcunfsd  Feb 12

    Hah! only if I start catching up 🤣 You might like that @nateger challenge too, that was the slothcore one I've been sitting on for 4 or 5 days adding bits and pieces to, and it got somewhat melodic in bits completely by accident, but it still just felt lacking until I read that thread hahaha.

  • @dzdandcunfsd  Feb 12

    Thanks! and since you're back to work I might catch up, until you post 10 more over the weekend 😁, well I'm not even caught up listening to yours yet.

  • @fuzzy  Feb 11

    Oh, and congrats on the win!

  • @fuzzy  Feb 11

    Good, I'm glad you liked it!
    Still thinking about Chantal, though.

  • @tuneslayer  Feb 11

    "I swear it was a July day in October some time around March."

    That made me giggle, and at the moment I can use all the giggles I can get. Thank you.

  • @spazsquatch Feb 11

    Looking forward to it, but no rush or expectations. Part 6 decided to kick my ass and getting past it is the only thing on my mind right now.

  • @looprication  Feb 10

    Boo work! Yay @candle !

  • @kanttila  Feb 9

    I would say a mellow mix of both would be good! I'm thinking of using this pic from Gundam 0083 as the cover so maybe this might be good inspiration.



    As for time I'd say a 2-3 minute track that I can chop up would be best.

  • @dzdandcunfsd  Feb 9

    Well congratulations and my condolences on going back to work 😁

  • @kanttila  Feb 9

    Hey man, I'm slowly working on that track you sent. I'm a bit stuck for lyrics but once I got the right thing going it's gonna be great I think!

    I had a small request to make, if it's alright. At the start and end of my next album I'm going to have voicemail messages a friend recorded. I was wondering if you could make basically 2 minutes of ambiance to play in the background. Similar to what you did on "The Hope Named Despair". Nothing crazy, just a bit of an unsettling backing, maybe with some random sounds.

  • @dzdandcunfsd  Feb 9

    Well I was almost caught up listening to your stuff..............yesterday 😁

  • @spazsquatch Feb 9

    No stems... thanks for saving me from that rabbit hole. Don't worry about it, it'll teach me to make my scratch tracks right from the start. 😂

  • @spazsquatch Feb 9

    Awesome, I added you. I can send you some stems if you want. I just looped the section twice so I had something to sing over, but that's not really what the song is asking for.

    If you've got stems for your layers on The Inventor Awakes I would love to get that. My vocals on that were pretty bad and I would love to re-record them. Email is on my profile.

  • @spazsquatch Feb 9

    Hey @candle, any interest in adding a little Jeskola Buzz to a track? Newest track is sort of a continuation of The Inventor Awakes and while I like it as a stand alone, I feel like some of your magic would pull it together in a way my version only hints at. It's been 21 hours since you released something, so I figure you are bored. 😉

    No worries if not, but if so, I'll ad you as a collaborator. Track is at : https://fawm.org/songs/115589/

  • @beat  Feb 9

    Jap, they look and sound awesome.
    ...and about the voices, no, no voices. Just my recorded Saxsample meshed up with the Sound Scaper.
