Edward Roussac 15


Melbourne AU   Jan 2017

Artist Bio

Influences:   The Beatles, Pink Floyd, The Rolling Stones, David Bowie, INXS, Bob Dylan, Tom Waits, King Crimson, Robert Fripp, Mike Oldfield, The Velvet Underground, Daniel Johnston, Jandek

I play piano, guitar and bass, and occasionally sing. I am able to write songs when given the opportunity, but often have trouble getting inspired.

This is going to be my third year of FAWM. My goal for this year is to write a concept album about communication and friendship. I believe I will have a friend from high school sing the lead vocals on [some of] the songs, and there will be dialogue snippets scattered throughout the songs.

I'm still here. It's frustrating when you've made a promise to yourself to stick around on FAWM and it is literally a ghost town from March to January. I'm over exaggerating here, but I hope you get the gist of what I'm saying.

FAWM 2017: 14/14 songs. Half of those songs were older songs written before 2017, but I still managed to get 14 in. Most of these songs ended up on my debut album "The Beginning".
FAWM 2018: 14/14 songs. Most of these songs are still in an incomplete state, but I plan to finish them sometime and use them in my unfinished album "The Pop Album".

Casio CTK-620L 61-key keyboard
Yamaha PSR-EW400 76-key keyboard
Korg B1 digital piano
Martinez MD-33 TSB steel-string acoustic guitar
SX Precision bass guitar
Monterey MGS-14 electric guitar
Acoustica Mixcraft 7
Steinberg UR22 MkII audio interface

    Zong because I have banished all the listeners with my incorrect music. Thank you for your comments even like its outside of FAWM.

    Hey Edward, you left a detailed comment on Plans for World Domination a while back. Apologies for not replying sooner. I appreciated your careful listen and the time you took to share your thoughts.

    The drms are from an iPad app, Easy Drummer, great sounds and recorded in stereo. This year I learned to use a stero track when recording them. I ran out of steam after a day working on this so never worked out the vocals. Hence the instrumental. I tried to capture the perspective of a kid running away and what escape would look like. No sarcasm intended, but the lyrics probably need work. And yes, I love a good mellotron sound.

    Hi friend, is there a way you could send me an mp3 of the track just for my reference while recording? I will delete it after recording. I am not sure how to pull the video down to the daw to get you a clean vocal stem. email is pearlmanhattanmusic at gmail dot com. Thanks, dear. As soon as I get this MP3, I will lay down a track. I'm assuming your instructions are similar to those given to the vocalist Floyd used in Great Gig in the Sky - I'm a HUGE Floyd fan and have watched many documentaries about that particular track. Again, thank you for this - it's been a dream of mine for a very long time - I look forward to hearing from you.

  • @pearlmanhattan  2 weeks

    Hi, yes, sorry, ...i've had some things, but will be doing some vocal work today, and will give it a try. How do you prefer the file? Again sorry, ...and thank you.

    Thanks for listening and commenting on my latest song ! We’re almost there ! Cheers πŸ‘

  • @pearlmanhattan  4 weeks

    I can try to do some Gig-esque vocals for you tomorrow over your instrumental. I'll send you what I come up with. Probably Tuesday.

  • @bithprod 4 weeks

    Ok, but let me re-record it tomorrow and try to make the vocals sound better.

  • @bithprod 4 weeks

    I actually wrote some lyrics for 5090 in 2016 that might fit. It's a horrible vocal take ona PC mic, but I didn't want to do too much work if you hate it. https://www.dropbox.com/s/dj4f3cfvq5q...

  • @bithprod 4 weeks

    I'd love to, but you'd need to find someone else to sing it. πŸ˜€ I'll be happy to make a vocal melody and record some scratch vocals, but I'm nowhere near a good enough singer.

  • @misterd 4 weeks

    Thanks for listening and the generous and kind comments on my song ' im so glad i got rid of facebook . i appreciate it ! Cheers mate

    Thanks for your comment on 'Mirror on my horizon '. Glad you liked what you heard.

    Thank you for the kind words on my song Birth. It's so rewarding to hear that it brought a possible movie collage of scenes to your mind. Thanks for that. πŸ˜€

  • @rainchaser  5 weeks

    Thank you for your comment on "I've Heard It All! Say it again!!" Yeah this is my first attempt on a soul song. And hopefully I can get better on the timbre of my voice to be more like Weller or Winwood. This is also my first attempt on singing while playing hence the long pauses. Lol I sound like Daniel Johnston, huh? I guess there's a bit of Daniel Johnston in all of us, right?! 😁

  • @acousticmaddie  5 weeks

    No worries. And yes Let's rock instead πŸ˜€

  • @acousticmaddie  5 weeks

    Excuse me ? You should maybe consider that people have different times and places to listen? I usually do comment a lot and I chose my time and place when I have it. Maybe not in the same minute somebody writes on my wall and I think its much more important to say "Thank you"!

  • @acousticmaddie  5 weeks

    Thank you for the kind comment on Old county jail πŸ˜€

  • @lemonstar 5 weeks

    Thanks for your comments - actually I re-recorded Vincent with only minor changes but what you said was surprisingly helpful - you were OK about some aspects I was in 2 minds about. I will re-record it some time (maybe not Feb) as I now know I can play it against 130bpm - as it stands I think the timing and rhythm sounds more all-over-the-place than it really is - it does vary from section to section.

    It's good to hear you going for it with your singing - mentally you just have to tell yourself you are a singer and start thinking that way, not just a musician and like being a musician - remember when you started playing guitar and keyboards? Look at the progress you made over time with that.

    Hey, thanks for the thoughtful comment on "Everything, Every Day."

  • @fourzeroes  5 weeks

    Thanks. I was worried the piano and drums sound faked. I mean, they are but I don't want it to be too obvious. The bass, guitars and vocals are real though πŸ˜€

  • @msculli1  6 weeks

    You were interested in using one of my lyrics for your concept. If you don't have a copy I can email it to you, if you still want to use it that is.
    Cheers, Mark.

  • @calumcarlyle  6 weeks

    Well, i will give it a go, but let me have a few days please. I am feeling the passage of time as if it's almost audibly whooshing past at the moment. πŸ˜€

    Looking at the song comments though, i suspect someone will beat me to it!

  • @oneslowtyper  6 weeks

    Thanks Edward, feel free to work with "Disconnect" in any way you want to use it.

  • @lvgd09  6 weeks

    Thank you Edward for your comments on my Pow Wow tune. I did a quick remix because the vocal samples were bothering me. It's better now, thanks.

    Have a great FAWM!!

  • @silvermachine  8 weeks

    Hello mate. Yeah I know Jandek, he's bloody weird and rather mysterious. I'm a million times more noisier and raucous than him.
    I call meself Silver Machine because I am streamlined and sexy as you can see! haha, the contrariness appeals to me.
