This is my 4th year doing Fawm.
I had a few ideas ranging between a concept album and random song ideas. With the world being what it is I think I will do a combination of both.
Some of these pieces will be space themed soundscapes of various moons in the solar system. Others will be random ideas as inspiration comes.
Last year I made an album of soundscapes of the planets in the solar system. In a way this album will be different and the pieces may be shorter soundscapes and not as detailed in linking as last year. The names and mytholgical characters of the moons do not have the same notoriety or collective mythos.
No offense to Iapetus, but Jupiter and Mars carry more pressure to encapsulate correctly. In some instances just having a spacey synth piece may be what it is. : )
There are many great artists on this site and I anticipate following them again.
Thank you in advance for anyone who listens to or comments on a piece as I appreciate your time.
Have a great 2021 Fawm to all!

Thank you for your kind comment on "And the Journey Begins".
Thank you for your comment 😀
Cheers for the comment on "The Triumph of Emperor"!
hey thanks for the comment on my tune!
it's a little funny: you compared it to a NES soundtrack, which is about 10 years off from what I was aiming for, but it makes me wonder what the song would sound like if arranged for the NES, lol
Hello, Helios! I imagine my Sassy Cereal could be growing on one of all the moons you've got assembled here. Really impressing! And with all that Greek mythology attached to the orbs, it's even more obvious that you relish the mysterious. Thanks for the comment!
Thanks for the listen!
Thanks a lot for your kind comments <3 That meant a lot to me - thank you
Thank you for the comment.
Thanks a lot for listening! Much appreciated!
Glad you enjoyed UFO. 😀
Thanks as always! and you've really done quite a bit more than you intended this year! kudos! on #20 I'll get caught up listening probably Monday.
Thx a lot for the nice comments on my vocal. I also will give you some virtual flowers for really joining me at this years fawm. Thx a lot!
Thank you for that, re: the Christ'mas song. I kind of know, and why I didn't record it. I poked one person who may be interested, we'll see. It was one of those, annoying people 😀 songs - responses. It seems it's not okay to disparage any other "thing" in the world, unless... well you know, I am sure can finish that 😀 One can't "species appropriate", disparage a cat/dog today 😀 but, hey, misappropriate or mock that, - that's okay, - not. 😀
I'll likely toss it in with the quick musication of this ~150yo -ish pub-dom hymnal I'm chording out (demos to remember the non-piano music 😀 hahhh). It's the only stuff I'll do anymore in that context. Hey, I'll "rock" it, but no hillsongs, just the old stuff, as gud'nuff 😀
Glad you liked Delicate Things. Thanks again!
Looks like you had a very productive FAWM and I hope you're pleased with your tracks. I really liked the theme.
I really appreciate you listening and commenting on so many of my tracks. I have found your comments insightful and they have helped me view my music from a different perspective. 😀
Thank you for your kind feedback! =^.^=
And again THX! The real follower and so appreciated! My turn to listen up since last. Some new songs here now.
Hey there, thank you for your kind and encouraging comment on "Gravity Shifted"! I'm so self-conscious when it comes to my vocals, really appreciate you liking them!
thanks for listening to 'heartbeats'
Appreciated your feedback on Flood Tide Of Filth Redux. Thanks again for listening.
Thank you very much for your comments-I think that's very nice of you <3
So honored that you give me all this feedback on my songs. Even the noisy ones. Thx!
Oh nice thanks! Which U-He do you use? I use a lot of Zebra / Dark Zebra and also Massive X/Massive ( I find Massive X pretty useful for really ridiculous basses)
Thanks again for the listen and your comments on Mr. Jones Part Two.
Thanks for your commenting!! Allthabest 😀
Silverstein wrote A BOY NAMED SUE! Wow thanks for the comparison!!
Yes, more like those. The ones I heard were like an orchestra of Strings and Angles singing and noodling in flow. - Interesting stuff. I just took it as "space" recordings, ("of" the galaxy), didn't look into, what, or how. I grab binoculars or a small small scope now and then, - it's a weird pull/draw. I probably should read a book on sky-watching.
Haha! Any resemblance in my rhyme to Mr, Silverstein’s works is strictly coincidental! I know there is one part where every line rhymes I think... that was fun ☺️
He exorcised the Devil, despite him showing up in a kilt! WTF?
Oh, those are interesting, thank you. But, not gear or what they did, but, and realizing space is a vacuum, these were the supposed sounds of "space" itself. I'll see if I can hit on what it was when I get a chance to ad hoc search.
Just thinking out loud (great expression aye 😀 ) , - it could have been (well what's out there, light waves from every other place)..., some interpolation of that, - but a wild guess. I remember some "galaxy" 😀 pic was put up and these back to back "recordings" were played.
Sounds a bit rediculous as I write this 😀 hahhh. But a vacuum is a great environment for any "wave" to travel through, - atmosphere is resistance and radio waves of certain length, Hz, are "bounced" off the, several layers of upper atmosphere for global analog transmission (old days style, not w/Repeater tech of today); - meaning any wave to make it to "space" has no resistance to disapate it, and travel infinitely until attenuated.
- But, I digress... 😀 hahhh
Thank you for comment - do you have an idea for "Nightingale"?I am open to all ideas 😉
Thank you so much for spending so much of your time listening and commenting on my tunes! I really appreciate it! 😀
Thank you (as always) for all the listens & the comments. I need to find some time to dedicate to listening to your songs. Will be back soon to do just that!
See You In The Shadows…
Thanks for your thoughts on Tornado. Wasn’t sure where I was going when I started but am happy with the results. Cheers!
Thank you, - there's something about Anazia's voice that works in my stuff. I am not sure I (vox) harmonize with her so well, but, I like when she sing's my stuff.
Thanks I am glad you like Dunderhead! It's a modern legend, that we all have to live through, I'm afraid. 😉
Appreciate your listen of Mr. Jones Part One. Glad the funky vibe came through and it wasn’t just In my head. 🤪
Thank you for your comment.
Thanks for your comment on grail, I'm moving extra slowly this month but I got here and as usual it's great
Thanks for your comment and care on "The obligatory dance", just want to reassure you that it was exploration and not full on truth. Hope you're well!
Thx again for all the follow up commets. Much appreciated.
Thank a lot for your comments on my songs - - I'm very grateful
Thanks for listening to my other tracks and for your feedback. I really appreciate you providing specific comment. I’m off work next and am looking forward to catching up with listening to your tracks.
Hahhh, "sheriff entered the bar fight", - yeehaw!
Time for me to start getting caught up on your stuff! (Don't fear, I still have 50 or so songs left to make for FAWM myself... LOL)
Thank you for listening Helio!!
Thx a lot for all the comments lately. I had a day off everything yesterday.(Except composing late night again...) But now I am here again. I move over to you`re songs now.
Yes, thank you. I love cowboy trail songs. I am glad he writes/drafts them and so easy to collaborate with! I especially like if there's slight twisted humor, all the better.
Thanks again for listening to Check and Let Me Know and Many Steps To Go. I appreciate the positive feed back and am glad you liked them.
Thank you very much for comment "Musica Poetica No9" your welcome.
As soon as I can, I'll listen to your songs 😉
Thanks for that, or hearing it that way.
It was actually fairly sonicaly "gaudy", then backed it all out. I didn't want to give anyone ptsd flashbacks, but, felt I had to leave the beginning extra ditty's in.
I'm backing away from my 5-min mourning-morning headline writes... hahhh.
Thanks for checking out How Much? Appreciate your encouragement.
It'll be weird, i'm sure the outcome of the collab, thanks for your comment
Thank you for the comment as well 😀
Thank you loads for the visits and for taking the time to leave your comments! I really appreciate it. 😀
Thank you again for the listens & comments. I really appreciate the time you've put into listening to all my music over the past year. It's been awesome. I've gotta make some time to catch up with your songs. But I have a collab I need to finish first. Will be back later!
See You In The Shadows…
Thanks for your kind thoughts on Living Stereo. I really appreciate the feedback. 😀
Hey, - wow, so four in one sitting, you must have been bored 😀 hahhh. Well, thank you.
These two tracks have a different flow, skew, - great to hear.
I don't know anything about electronic music (EDM?), and only like just a very few folks work who do it. I think the difference is, if possible to articulate here?, you use the tools to make the music, not go to them and let the "packs" (as I call them) make it. Your stuff never sounds plastic.
Also, I am kind of sensitve to the very plastic sound of EDM and "pre-writes" but yours sound like real instrument samples.
I came to know one person who did EDM, actually dzd and I both know/knew him (he is around, then not - from Czech)... anyway, he said he made all of his own samples, - not ad-ins or packages purchased. I belive it.
Hahhh, we did one collaboration, ad hoc, not sure if dzd was in on that too, -- hahhh, great guy, but just could not "stand" us 😀 (not in any bad way... he was pretty "unstable" when it came to music..., and realised it). But I think he loved our comments, jokes and feedback. And if I/we would jam a dub to his tracks, - he'd use it.
His world of "critique", EDM folks, eh, - not for me, - as you can hear 😀 hahhh, - I'll play with a buzzing string. (I think I fixed that, - some forward bow on a winter-guitar neck shrinkage).
Anyway, - derUgo!
Thanks! and you weren't far off! Descartes Demons was the original title until I realized I had written that song already..........not with that title, but with the lyrical content..... It was a look at self-harm to validate yourself. It may get back to that if I do end up doing a lyrical re-write hahah......just funny you mentioned that........ I changed it to Desecrate It's still very much a work in progress and probably something for after fawm 😁
I’m here 😀
Good luck FAWMing this year! I'm pretty curious on what you'll come up with this time around.
Awesome, I'll be happy to chat with you.
Loving your moons concept ; your concepts are always great anyway.
Hey there! I'm good, how about you? Let's rock this maddafokker
Thank you 😀 hahhh, commented there.
Hello hello! Good to see you here once again - happy FAWMing to you too!
Hi and yes! Looking forward to particape and listen to you`re songs again. See you!
Hey, very glad to be back this year, I feel like FAWM is especially necessary this year. Looking forward to see what you do this year!
I don't know what I'm doing this year either, so I'm also curious to see what I do, haha
Welcome back, enlightened being of light! So glad we’re back in the same creative space once again 😀
You're the one who did the (movie trailer, somthing...), video sync contest thing last year?
Thanks! Same to you!
Hi! Good to see you around. Here's to a great fawm!
Thank you, you're sweet!
Hope you have a great FAWM, I know everything you'll post will be great, concept or not.
I don't forget you wanted us to collab this year. Even though I'm out this Feb, this is something we can discuss on my Slack when time allows it. 😀
Right back at ya! Looking forward to your 2021 edition!
Time is always an issue, my friend. Yet somehow we all find a way to make things work in the way they need to work. Looking forward to whatever you do, concept or not 😁
See You In The Shadows…
👋 any big major epic theme planned again this year?

I really enjoyed your "planets" tunes last year and am looking forward to hearing this year's stuff!
