    是的 (很久)
    对, 我还住在北京。
    I like it here, but might move in a few months.
    How is the novel?

  • @candle  Mar 6

    I've been puttering away at adding to the story over the last few days (the 3rd person version - I always seem to have an easier time writing in 3rd person for some reason). I am so glad you enjoyed what I have shared & the song version that came out of it. That Sci-Fi world has changed a lot since the first round of stories I wrote years ago (it was far too much of a Star Wars knock off back then, I would have been sued by Lucas Films for it LOL). The main idea is still there & a lot of the original places/locales survived my world-rebuild (even some of the characters - like Bliths, though she's a lot different then her original incarnation). It has me excited to explore that world again. And now that I've sort have taken a bit of a Cyberpunk turn with this Override story, I'm really intrigued where my Muse is going to take me from here. If you're interested in the earlier versions (again, they are far too Star Wars to be reasonable LOL), you can check them out on my scribd page: Something to take give your mind a break from your revision - when you need it.

    Just had a laugh related to you.
    Often students choose a name for themselves based on meaning, but with a word which isn't strictly an English NAME, so I like to find them an alternative.

    This morning I had a student called Thunder. I had a look for synonyms, and briefly considered suggesting Caterwauler to him. LOL, laughed out loud to myself 😝

  • @candle  Mar 2

    Oh I like that. Listened to a few of his in the playlist. Very shoegazey - but I love how he manipulates all the loops. Now you have me thinking I need to re-vamp how I do my own looping LOL. See, you inspire me still! Thank you so much for sharing that.

    Est-ce que je peux dire: "Moi aussi"? 😁

    I have to admit, you were one of the first FAWMers I listened to back when I joined (so many years ago now… has it really been that long?). From the moment I first heard your music I was enthralled by the worlds you create & the depth of sound you are able to produce. When I saw your Foggy Afternoon video (in 2011 I believe, if my memory is correct) & watched you build one of your soundscapes live, from the ground up - I have to admit, I was a little jealous. You were creating the kind of music I'd always wanted to create using the methodology I had always envisioned. I've learned a lot listening to your music (& from our wonderful conversations) over the years & I'm happy to say I finally feel that I am now making that kind of music. And I am able to do them live. You've inspired me & in a way, helped me achieve this musical methodology that I've always dreamed of using. So yes, I too *Truly appreciate your music, your support & the friendship we have shared for all these years* It is one of the greatest parts of FAWM for me.

    And yes, I was sad you were not posting your usual songs. But I was so happy for you, that you are revising your novel. That's an amazing accomplishment in itself! Plus, we still had the treat of hearing you accompany @sirius on his tracks. So, you didn't really miss FAWM 2021. You were certainly here. I am glad that you were.

    Merci mon ami. Merci pour toute que vous donne a cette monde et merci pour toutes nos dialogues à travers les années.

    No worries!! Just glad to hear from you. I'll enjoy some listening, if you post! I am nearly back to 100% and the shoulder, although achy, is coming along nicely with the range of motion, thanks to physical therapy. 😀

  • @zecoop  Feb 2

    Yay - hello there! Glad you are well and hope the physio goes well. I have some of that too for my left shoulder that got repaired in Dec. Seeming to hold ok. I had covid right after Christmas which lasted three weeks... Not fun, but I am about 100% now. Very glad to be here and very glad to hear from you. Let me know if you have any interest in a collab. I can do as simple as you want. 😀

  • @zecoop  Feb 2

    Oh... bummer! Was coming over to check how you've been, as I have not heard from you lately. Hope you are well.

  • @danvaillancourt  Feb 1

    Hi Joanne! Miss you. Hope you are well! Maybe we will see you come back and give us at least a song or two. 😉

  • @mikedebenham  Jan 31

    Best of luck with whatever you're up to!

  • @heliosonorous Jan 26

    Working on my concept album plans, deadline is approaching, the idea was a companion to last year with a focus on the moons of the solar system.
    Figuring out a collab would be awesome!  I'll sign in to your slack sometime in next few days and say hi!

  • @roy  Jan 25

    Well, I'm sad you won't be doing songs, but very happy that your Novel is approaching completeness... best of luck to your success!

  • @candle  Jan 24

    Yeah, the setup is a little cramped, but that's my own fault. I really need to clear the room of some jumk to give me some more space. Yet somehow I still manage to work in there.

    As for writing songs vs. writing novels - it sort of makes sense. A song is sort of like one scene in a novel. The novel is more like a series of concept albums. Plus, it's far easier to throw some compression or reverb on a track to make it sound better. With words, you need a thesauraus & some creative editing to maybe get just one sentence to flow better (never mind the whole narrative!). In a lot of ways you're doing the same sort of things, but the methodology is completely different. As such, writing a novel does take a whole lot longer than writing a song (or album for that matter).

    That's probably why I end up finishing albums & musical projects a lot more often than I do writing projects. My Muse is too AD/HD & is bouncing onto the next idea before I even have the last one fleshed out LOL. I've found I have to have multiple projects going at once so she can happily jump from one to another when she feels like it. It's the only way I seem to get anything done.

  • @heliosonorous Jan 23

    Glad to see you here! I'm sure your novel will be great based on the sonic images of scenes from your writing that you have shared!

  • @candle  Jan 22

    Well that's exciting. I can see why you want to focus on your writing. That makes a lot of sense. It's awesome you're now at the revision stage. I know you've put a lot of work into the book, so it's great to see you getting near the end of the process. If you need any encouragement, I'll be cheering you on from the sidelines!

  • @rayboneor  Jan 22

    Ha...I knew what you meant, of course. I was in denial. I will have a great FAWM, because I'm the custodian of the definition of greatness. Have a great FAWM-free February 😀

  • @candle  Jan 22

    I'm sad to hear that. But you have to do what works best for you. I was on Slack last night, it was pretty dead. But maybe we can catch up there sometime soon. Take care!

    Not this year? Nooooooooo! Not even one? Pleeeeeeeease?

  • @candle  Jan 21

    We are doing well. Just trying to stay warm. Looks like our usual Winter weather has finally arrived after a very mild start to the season. I'm glad to hear everyone is well. As always, looking forward to your FAWM output. I'll have to logon to your Slack space tonight & catch up. See what Slackbot has been up to for all these months LOL
