This is my fourth FAWM (woo hoo); been looking forward to it since about April!
I just set up my keyboard today. One goal this year is to write on a range of instruments and use a variety of sounds to spark ideas and form new habits. I hope to do a couple of instrumental pieces.
I'm always (in theory if not always in practice) up for collaboration...
I would love to hear your take on Don't Remind Me of Dementia.
Hi Beth such a great job you did on the lyrics and vocals, I especially liked the chorus and what you did with the bridge.
thanks for your comment on 'high dive jump'!
Thanks for your words.
do you mean that besides the adjusting with the volume you still think I can make the dynamics a bit less extreme?
would like to hear that 😀
And can I follow you and your songs on Facebook/ instagram?
Thanks for the comment, glad you enjoyed the tune!
Added you as collaborater, looking forward to hear the results.
With regards to 'killing fields' (thanks for your comment by the way) I think lyrically It's a mix of hopeful and depressing I guess. I'm not even sure myself! The leaves and roots line you refer to is just saying we can't try to deal with the surface problems, we need to start from the roots. E.g to deal with pollution don't just make some crazy ass anti pollution tents, actually deal with the pollution. That kind of stuff!
Thanks for your comments. I have too little time this year to create many things. But it's ok in a way that I also have no time for editing or rerecording etc.
Hi gbg2016, glad you liked the tune, feel free to add lyrics/vocals if you find the time and/or inspiration. Always curious to hear what people come up with on my tunes.
Thanks for your comment on Glassbox 😀 Happy FAWMING 😀
Thanks for your comment, sooooo appreciated 😁 I hope you're having a wonderful Fawm so far!
thanks SO much for the comment on Make Believe . i really appreciate it!!
Once again, thank you for the comments on my tracks! To answer your question about "Her Dissonant Symphony" - on the chorus, I think you're referring to the square-wave synth I ran through a vocoder for some freaky "harmonies" behind my own voice, which was then improvised around the 3rd chorus, with the entire track at that point sent through a pitch-shifting delay for more dissonant chromatic disturbance.
Thank you for your comment on my song Birth.
Thanks for your kind comments regarding I walk in circles. I'm glad you
enjoyed it. I was concerned it might get boring by the end. Liked the humorous comment: "creepy, like the inside of my head". If the inside of your head is like the inside of mine sometimes, I feel for you!
Hey thanks for your comments on “Racin Through My Thoughts.”
Thanks for your comments on Fractals. Scott did a wonderful job with the music and performance.
Nice to see you! 😁
Thanks for giving my firstborn a listen!
Hi! Have a great FAWM. I look forward to hearing what you create this year. 😀
