    Thank you for your feedback, really appreciate it!

  • @mikeskliar  Feb 24

    Remember that idea from last night's chat to 'write something that violates all your usual norms'? well, woke up this morning and did this, maybe not totally an outlier, but close, i think? https://fawm.org/songs/121781/

  • @pvk2020  Feb 21

    Thanks for the feedback ๐Ÿ˜

  • @sbs2018  Feb 15

    Thanks so much for your awesome comments on โ€œRockin the House.โ€ One thing just led to another - lol!

  • @saoirse Feb 15

    Awwww thanks for the comment! While the recording was one take, I practiced it several times before actually trying to record it haha

  • @postcardhelicopters  Feb 6

    Your comment was so kind - I went searching online for an album using the title you posted because I would *so* listen that thing to death. Instead, I'm guessing you're offering an album title/theme that song would belong to. If that's the case, let me offer my deepest thanks as I tuck that away for safekeeping and as a guidepost.

  • @pvk2020  Feb 6

    Hey Elaine. Another music writing marathon.

  • @jorh  Feb 5

    Thanks for you great comments and for mentioning Punk! Youโ€™re 100% right I think it work fab in that style ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @stephentanner Feb 5

    Thanks for your comment. Yes, #hankinhell is so much more versatile than youโ€™d think. It really made me try different things as well. Hard Left is awesome song as well by the way. Love it. You wouldnโ€™t think the two songs were born from the same principle but they absolutely were.

  • @guatecoop  Feb 5

    Thank you! Yes, those really are fingers on strings, as well as amps and drums making a lot of noise. Somehow the recording part is being weird. Iโ€™m not sure how, but everything is acting all wacky. Itโ€™s alright though. We will get through. How is your fawm going?

  • @ineloquentsd  Feb 4

    Thank you for your comments on โ€œOrison Unto Brighid!โ€ Iโ€™m so glad that you picked up on what I was doing with the structure! My work with Brighid has always very much been a โ€œheal yourself so that you may go on to heal othersโ€ process, and I wanted to honor that with the way I wrote the song. ๐Ÿ’–

  • @andygetch  Feb 4

    Hey Elaine, thanks for the kind comment on my Groundhog Day song! It was very cool to connect faces with (user)names and hear the stories at the Tuesday Night Music Club.

  • @evolvemysound  Feb 4

    Thank you for the constructive comment on my song! I appreciate it!

  • @raygungirls Feb 3

    Hello again! Yup, I'm back... bringing it hard and heavy!

  • @georgelevitre1  Feb 2

    Happy FAWMing!!!!!

  • @jinx  Feb 1

    Hey Elaine, happy FAWMing!

  • @chasingandromeda  Feb 1


  • @haim  Feb 1

    Was so happy to read your comment on my post on the forum. Thank you so much for your loveliness. Have a lovely fawm 2021!

  • @apolez3 Jan 31

    Hello, thank you for the welcome & happy FAWMING! Yes interesting topic lyrical vs. poetic... simular/same yet different. And you're welcome on the shout out on the forum!

  • @chasingandromeda  Jan 31

    Elaine, I just noticed your post in the FAWMtronica thread about writing chamber music. Let me know if you are interested and have time for a collab. I have not written chamber music for FAWM but have written a fair amount in the past. I do cinematic music as well so chances are I may have some of the same sound sources you are using. It's all good either way but looked like an interesting opportunity.

  • @evolvemysound  Jan 29

    I am excited to be a part of FAWM. Monday is only three days away! ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @ianquiet1 Jan 28

    Thanks for reaching out! I understand what you mean about covering Tori, being out of reach!๐Ÿ˜‚

  • @quork  Jan 28

    Agreed, this is the most amazing community. I tend not to jump in and escalate situations, but I also have a habit of standing up for the underdog (for better or worse). And I appreciate that repeating what is wrong with an approach may come across as betraying a safe space. So, I made my point and will not comment further on there. Here's to happy, positive and constructive conversations.

  • @natrebo  Jan 28

    Thanks for sharing some anecdotes with me.

  • @lvgd09  Jan 28


  • @johnstaples  Jan 28

    Hey Elaine! I forgot...am I supposed to bring the gravity or the air? ๐Ÿ˜ Happy FAWM 2021!

  • @quork  Jan 28

    Thanks for the context. I struggled with whether I should jump in.

  • @natrebo  Jan 27

    Thanks for the welcome! If you have any advice to a first timer here, please share.

  • @kable  Jan 27

    Enjoyed what I heard on your SC, watchlisted!

  • @chasingandromeda  Jan 26

    Welcome back, Elaine!!

  • @artie Jan 26

    Thanks, Elaine! Looking forward to Spinal Tapping that knob good. ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @pifie Jan 25

    Make prog with me! I certainly can improvise prog rock BUT without keyboards

  • @swampjaw  Jan 25

    It seemed like a good idea at the time!

  • @swampjaw  Jan 25

    Heeey. I'm keeping a low profile!

  • @kathym  Jan 24

    You are much more of a formal musician than I am, so no surprise that you chart out your harmonies. ๐Ÿ˜€ I'm looking forward to hearing your beautiful songs this year.

  • @standup  Jan 24

    Welcome back again, hereโ€™s to air and gravity for the next 5 weeks

  • @tukayandryan  Jan 23

    Thanks for the tip! Have posted on the duo thread ๐Ÿ™‚

  • @tukayandryan  Jan 22

    Thank you! Can't wait to get started ๐Ÿ™‚

  • @humblecomposer Jan 21

    So... what shall we collab on this year?

  • @reklov  Jan 21

    Hi Elaine! Thanks for your greets! I wish you a great FAWM time! ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @hornesgiftshop  Jan 18

    Hi Elaine - all the best to you - have a good'un

  • @charliecheney  Jan 16

    I'm in Keystone, CO. 75 miles west of Denver.

  • @charliecheney  Jan 15

    Oaklandish? That's outlandish! Or is it? Hi!

  • @bootlegger Jan 15

    hey thanks! good to see other 08 peeps hanging around still!

  • @toms  Jan 15

    Psychological methods? Over the Great DiMasi? HA! Doomed to fail, spectacularly. HA!

  • @jharms  Jan 15

    Thanks @elainedimasi ! Love "this place keeps its soul" - certainly seems that way to me! Almost seems like a snowglobe, preserved in amber in a way

  • @postcardhelicopters  Jan 15

    This is still one of the best places, online, and it's always satisfying to come back and hear what everyone is up to.

  • @toms  Jan 15


  • @mikedebenham  Jan 15

    That's a vow I consistently break! Have a wonderful FAWM, Elaine.

  • @mckrispee Jan 14

    Thanks for making me feel welcome! (: Excited to hear what you get up to.

  • @johncrossman  Jan 12

    Thanks for the bookish recommendation! My excellent library has digital copies and my brain awaits. Itching for Feb?

  • @doggolito Jan 12

    Hello !
    I try to combine both games (by that I mean some sounds I hear in games) and music but I'd say I'm more influenced by video game soundtrack. They inspired me a lot

  • @tseaver  Jan 12

    RE: welcoming FAWMlings. I'm still so grateful to those who greeted me and made me feel welcome here.

  • @standup  Jan 12

    Welcome back for another time around this February. I'm in DC, so our season so far has been riots and insurrection. With more, likely, to come.

  • @rickatfulcrum  Jan 12


  • @jeustan  Jan 11

    I really enjoyed your songs and your thoughtful comments last year. Hereโ€™s to another FAWM! ๐Ÿ˜

  • @timfatchen  Jan 11

    Gravity. It's why i usually use a backless bench at the computer. Organ bench actually. Butt on bench. Feet on floor. no back to sag against. Try to remember to sit up...!

  • @timfatchen  Jan 11

    No! No gravity! Too much gravity already! Air now, that's another thing altogether! We're still alive and functioning (sort of), that must be a bonus!
