Artist Bio

Influences:   I have MYRIAD influences, but instead of listing artists, I shall instead list genres: 60s psychedelia; early 70s prog rock and glam rock; vaporwave; metal; shoegaze; electronica; drum-n-bass; grunge; bossa nova; jazz (of the standard, avant and SOMETIMES fusion varieties); 80s new wave; ska and its offspring, reggae; folk; klezmer; bhangra...I could really go on.

To say "a lot's changed since we were last here" would be a GROSS understatement.

A guy. A keyboard. A computer. A boatload of synthesizers, both hardware and software. An occasional guitar or bass guitar. Myriad genres. A vast vocabulary. Some noise. Plenty of ambience.

I'd better be getting at least a dozen autographed pictures of Shirley Bassey out of this. Otherwise, this has all been for nothing.

    You're nearly there!!

  • @lovina Feb 17

    Hello hello! 😀 Loving the sounds! You're kicking @$$

  • @cblack Feb 16

    I couldn't actually remember which synth it was - just that I'd used that exact preset before.

    All hail the PoiZone!

  • @fonte  Feb 15

    I did not think of it like that but you're totally right! 😂

  • @fonte  Feb 15

    😀 thanks for your comment on the new one, that made me laugh! I actually had a bit of Barry White-esque talking recorded but just left the bit where I started coughing as that seemed more apt!

  • @artie Feb 12

    Great tunes! Cool to see someone else who's into klezmer.

  • @apolez3 Feb 12

    Lolz, so I guess the link works. I don't know what I was thinking lol, might change...

  • @nahlej381  Feb 10

    Thanks for your kind words on loiter world

  • @phenola Feb 7

    Hey, thank you very much for the comment on my track "What Do You Mean"! Since you seem to be a synth guy (and I'm really not), I was very pleased to read your remarks!

  • @apolez3 Feb 7

    Hey, you wouldn't happen to be interested in collab'ing with others on the music end with guitar I think .. on that PUNK song?

  • @apolez3 Feb 7

    You're being too kind with your comment lol, loving it tho, like a hint or more of them vibes in there.

  • @fonte  Feb 6

    Yeah, autotune really works as an effect sometimes I think. In fact was messing around with it last night... so something coming soon maybe...

  • @elesimo  Feb 6

    I love the Bass as well, I love switching between 1 and 3 oscillators when playing it as a way to add variety.

  • @apolez3 Feb 5

    Thanks~ super excited about it,, she did an exquisite job !!

  • @apolez3 Feb 5

    Hey, so turns out for that genre,, It's new-age!!

  • @apolez3 Feb 3


  • @apolez3 Feb 3

    & yeah a debate maybe about the genre of 'love the moment' .... hmm I went from one to another lol, still not 100 % sure either really ...

  • @apolez3 Feb 3

    & LOved your AF comment hehe. 😝

  • @cblack Feb 3

    I don't actually own any physical synths. Just digital. Maybe at some point..

  • @cblack Feb 3

    I'm probably doing another one-synth at some point. Was gonna pick the simplest one in FL, then see how hard I can push it. Should be fun. 😀

  • @cblack Feb 3

    Thanks! And yeah, PoiZone is absolutely incredible. It's the only synth I've ever paid for. I don't pirate! What I meant was, I use what came free with FL Studio 12. It had a PoiZone demo version and I fell in love. Had to buy it.

  • @fonte  Feb 3

    😀 thank you kind sir! No one wants dry toast do they? Do they!? Looking forward to your next track!

  • @mikeskliar  Feb 1

    ha.. no worries! 😀

  • @mikeskliar  Feb 1

    thanks for the comment on 'punching down'- just to clarify tho, it wasn't me it happened to, but another fawmer!

  • @fonte  Jan 31
