For FAWM 2019, the focus will be on showing appreciation to the FAWM community. To express love to all fellow FAWMers that share what is truly a wonderful experience in an art form like no other.
Haha...j/k. Fuck everybody.
So yeah....the usual bullshit for 2019. Drink, then drink some more, press that big red record button and write unpolitically correct raunchy triple-X sex driven Satanic no class cuss infested NSFW trash vomit.
Vox/Guitar- Eye don't care
Guitar/Backing Vox - Eye could care less
Bass/Backing Vox- Eye don't give a shit
Drums- Eye'm sorry but do I have something on my forehead that says I care? Didn't think so. Go away.
No songs by this fawmer (yet).
(cont) By the way, I'm rubbish as far as "mastering" is concerned, and I've never learned how to use compression or MIDI.
So yes, let's just get something going and close down FAWM. I'm all for it. 😀

Must have screwed the previous one up by editing my message or something. Let me know if it still doesn't work. Gravitational turbulences maybe.
I forgot that guitar was my primary instrument myself. My guitar has been barely functional for a long while, but instead of doing anything to fix it, I simply made it less important in my stuff. At the end of FAWM, I'll send the darn thing to a friend for renovation. Until then I'll stick to ghost guitar parts.
Let me put your mind at rest regarding music theory. I know the basics but that's all. I play what I hear in my head. And I have tinnitus too, I'm just so overtrained into not listening to it that I regard it as a minor detail. My hyperacusis issues are much more annoying : I need colors and measurable values in my DAW to avoid getting confused with levels and frequencies.
Re Sirius : Thanks! When we adopted him, he was the ugly duckling. He was skinny, with thin, short hair, and he was sharp-nosed. After a while the vet realized he was probably a Norwegian forest cat crossbreed. If you have access to Youtube, check the first and the last video in Sirius' playlist, and you'll see how much he's changed in a few months : https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list...
Re the collab : I am intimidated too -- I always am when I collab, because of my fucked-up hearing, and all the more with people like you, who are both brilliant and self-sufficient.
But you know, my soundtrack pieces are closer to metal than to real neoclassical stuff in terms of structure and organization. I'm a guitarist first and foremost, and thus I tend to think like a guitarist when I write stuff. And incidentally, I love metal. 😀
Looking forward to working with you. I'm honored you've said yes. 😀
I will if you will!
On the off chance you ever do come through Winnipeg, let me know - I'll show you around. We don't have any old-school arcades, but one or two of the movie theatres have arcades attached these days (I think). Plenty of nerds, too, so you'll feel right at home.
Self-respecting witches have black cats. I don't even choose them : they choose me. 😉
Awesome, let's collab. 😀 Metal guitars and vocals sound good, and I'd like to have your drums in there as well. We should try and come up with something that will allow both our universes to interlock and/or collide. I'm sure you'll have directions even before FAWM begins. 😀
An excellent idea. I will require your electronic-mail address please 😀
Our library has a fourth floor too. The recording booths are brand new (the makerspace has been open since July), and it's a blast.
Will your music this year incorporate military sci-fi themes? That would be a kick.
Yeah man, that’s cool sure, just lemme know if you get time. Or not. I got a lotta dishes too so yeahhh.. and giraffes! Three of ‘em. That’s a LOT of dirty neck.
Hey Ju-Peter, glad to see you again.
Thank *you* for your kind words, and for the collaboration, and for making Mantra's FAWM so special and funny and enjoyable.
I started two emails that I never sent you, before and after Mantra's departure. I'll make sure to send you one soon.
Mantra's friend is called Émile. Now I also have a kitten, 9 months old, masterful hiker and tree-climber. His name is Sirius. He came to me and kissed my feet when I entered the kittens room in the refuge. Guess what : it's a black guy again. I'll pollute your soundboard with pictures of him in memory of Mantra. 😀
P.S. : Collab between you and me this year?
Yes!! YES! A thousand times yes!!
I mean.. if I get time, sure.. whatever.
I’ve missed you really
For some reason I can't fathom you're on my Watchlist
