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.

Thanks for your lovely comments on ‘a beautiful stranger’ - yes I love piano, it is so beautiful!
Hah, no prob, mate, glad I could help!
mail in your box
I’LL EMAIL YOU SOME (I won’t, don’t get excited).
It was 2AM PETER! Believe me, we rifled through horse sounds, but they just weren’t fucking neighing right so it hit the chopping room floor. Geez (degausser) is playing the good mouth organ in the hoedown, I just added the unbelievably cool bit over the chorus 😎
enjoyed your songs a lot and love your outlook on fawm
It's been a pretty productive FAWM so far even though I have been constantly behind! Seems like yours is going well too, I will be back to check out more later.
Thanks for the great comment on Nimbostratus. I wasn't doing any voodoo. But I can't speak for my collaborator 😉
See You In The Shadows…
Looks like it worked for my songs! Thanks for the comments.
Yes, an oracle of sorts. It's a song for my soundtrack, about the hero whose inner eye has opened, and who now sees beyond time and space.
Me, the soundtrack for 300?? *You* should do the soundtrack for 300.
Thanks so much for listening to “please don’t go” and for your kind comments! I’ve been really basic with my recording this year: just an iPhone and a garage band app. Having trouble finding the time I used to to make all the tracks but it’s still fun to write when I can. I look forward to checking out your new music too!
Hey there. Thanks for the comment! Currently, I'm using a Fender Mustang PJ (capri orange, short-scale) in the studio - gutted the electronics right at purchase 'cause they were absolute sh*t and threw in a set of Fralin pickups, a new toggle switch etc. I think the pickups were more expensive than the bass if I recall. 😉 It's a beauty now though. Cheers!
I can imagine the amount of energy this kind of song demands. THANK YOU for putting this collab together. <3
I often have the same issue as you when I listen to songs on FAWM. I suspect that it's not just related to connection speed, but to the site itself. I work around this bug by left clicking on the dl link (when there is one). It opens the song in a new player in a new tab, and as far as I'm concerned, it works smoothly.
Thanks for the great comments! 😊
And my solos are usually the same 30 seconds repeated over and over. I simply change the order of some of the notes... 😉
Wow, thanks for the huge compliments on "Satan Knows No Safeword"! Really means a lot! : )
Thanks for you comments on ‘beautiful generation’ - and for using the word anthemic that’s a huge compliment!!
eye beat you
Have you recovered from your metal marathon? I didn't mean to kill you, you know?
Thank you so much for your kind words on Shadowspawn. Yes, it could work in a Tarantino film quite well. That's huge praise!
See You In The Shadows…
Hahahah you’re a genius! I just blasted it out the car on the way home from work. It was written for our band! 😁
Haha...Vance already growls like a death metal rocker. We make all kinds of crazy sounds together 😀
Thank for kind words! Sorry to dissapoint you not to get you annoyed but thats just good I guess. Im bad with genres anyway just try to make something out. Have a positively annoying FAWMing. Haha
Let's do some blues first (I want to do some slide on the resonator) and if there's time we can do a Kinks or whatev later.
How you wanna do it? I could work a basic music structure out then send you that. you could work out vocals and melody.....as long as you're okay getting to grips with all these complex musical terms that is
Oh yeah it's definitely hilarious. I really enjoyed the social commentary, but it doesn't hit you over the head. Cool I will get back to you once I wrap up a collab I'm working on 😀
Thanks for the listen. A video of the dramatic envelope opening and build up to it would be fun to make.
Bonne nuit! Et vas-y doucement sur la vodka! 😝
Also metal collab could be really fun.
Fuck the harp, no time for minor details like that. It took me 3 listen to notice it wasn't there lol.
All day and night is long enough. Now you go to bed and sleep! (No clue what time it is for you right now but for me it's 4 am so I'm going to follow my own advice.)
And I know the Kinks in case you didn't know!
It’s so good. Highly recommend. You will understand my complaints about Japan as a woman so much more. It’s painfully accurate.
And by the way, LOL @ the mommy tag 😁
Hahahaha. Vodka works too! The most important part is to be naked.
The harp has gone into the void, but both of us can still hear it chanting. Kind of esoteric, don't you think?
Seriously, your vocals are goooooooood!!
I love it! Thought you would keep the harp, but it's great like that.
And yes, it's FAWM anyway. Hop! hop! hop!
I've edited the liner notes. I hope you agree with my advice.
Awesome! Thank you for your hard work!
Your vocals are fucking great. Putain de voix, ça déchire!!
It can be a good idea to use "nous" when you address people with "vous", and "on" when you address them with "tu". Formal and informal.
Anyway, I don't think anyone will bother you with that, especially if French isn't your native language. If someone does, they suck. We have "a few" swear words that could be useful in these situations. If you need to learn them, let me know. 😁
Looking forward to your vocals! 😁
Thanks for your interpretation of my "Interpretation of Dreams" - quite a Reichean analysis that I can go along with. But as Melanie once sang, in criticism of Freud's crudity " a phallic symbol is anything that is longer than it is broad" is just laughable.
Blues? Whenever you’re ready.
...but what happened to the Kinks?
It's incomprehensible.grooves@gmail (with the dot com, of course, but I'm trying to dodge spam this way. 😝 )
What should I send? The instrumental as it is + lyrics are good enough, right?
Okay, so yesterday I was working a bit on a project I was thinking of maybe collaborating with you on. I recorded some scratch vocals, which inspired lyrics, and then I rerecorded with those lyrics. Today I worked more on the lyrics and recorded more of the vocals and did a bit of an arrangement... but I don't love my singing.
I'm kinda torn between working many more hours on it until I'm happy with my own singing.... or just handing it off to you instead, as I'm sure you could do a much better job on the singing.
Here's the current rough take of it with my singing: https://vocaroo.com/i/s1bIMmsod0zd
Even without the vocals, this still needs more work, recording automations on the 303s, adding more drums, maybe more instruments, and possibly extending the arrangement too, and I'll get to all of that later.
What do you say? Care to lend me your voice to do this properly? And if so... where do I send you the instrumental?
And yeah, I can work with an mp3 recording.
Yeah, I do, I guess I just get caught in the moment. And usually I haven't even decided on timing that precisely yet before delivering. : D But yeah, seriously, that idea could work, I might try it out next time!
You got the files, great!
Tell me what you think of the transition between the last wailing guitars and voice sections. Been listening to it a few times, I'm wondering if I'm on time??
Disclaimer : this is coming from a fervent defender of formal language and a grammar nazi.
I speak perverted French all the time, but I believe that everyone (French native speakers I mean) should know how to speak properly.
It's actually a very, very bad perversion, removing the personal notion that initially goes with the pronoun to replace it by some impersonal point of view. "On" could be anyone. "On n'est pas d'accord" could be understood and/or translated as "somebody doesn't agree", and not specifically as "nous ne sommes pas d'accord".
It's true that you'll seldom hear "nous" in the spoken language, except from people who make a point of keeping it formal : teachers, writers, (some) journalists, some old persons (as the "on" perversion is fairly recent), and people who want to appear as polite.
Despite being largely spread, the use of "on" instead of "nous" still has a strong connotation of familiarity. It's better to avoid it in job interviews, or when you address people you don't know and you don't want to make a bad impression (unless they're your age, or openly cool and not giving a shit).
That is because "on" in place of "nous" is strongly disapproved in the written language, and sanctioned in school works and exams.
hey you can hang out here at my pad anytime...
i got a bottle of Jack opened and waiting for ya...
Allez, hop! Je t'ai envoyé mes trucs en email. Phew!
You're sorry?! You're going out of your mind??
Je repasse te faire le cours de français sur "nous" et "on" plus tard. 😉
Yeah.. Actually you are right.. Music does not have to make sense.. Thanks for this reminder 😀 You found the right words for something which is very true..
All my drums are always Toontrack's EZ Drummer, but I switch the kits around depending on the sound and groove of the tune. This little snippet is with the Hard Rock kit. Basically the Metallica Black Album drum sound. Tho with midi loops that clearly weren't recorded by Lars Ulrich... 😎
Aww, thanks. I kinda heard the riff developing into an instrumental, but I'll put the call out for vocals and see what happens. 😎
Thanks for your comments on "Black Metal Terror - Nuclear Horror" and "Mieleni liekit", man! You're right, I suppose I could try to double the vocals at some point. It's just that I'm so lousy with timing them, it could be kinda pain in the butt. : D As for shortness of that other track, I'm glad it left you wanting for more. : ) When making it, I thought that it would maintain its violence effectively, if I were to keep it short. : )
Wotcha mate. Gracias for all the listens and encouragement.
Will be back later today to check out your songs.
This FAWM lark is running me ragged.
Oh golly ok, well that makes up for your comment on my latest song then 😀
Well when I shared it on my Facebook I said it was a collab with my Fawm hero (you’re not really, I was totally embellishing) so I think his mom just assumed I must’ve been referring to Ad 😂. But you’d think she’d know what her son sounds like after all these years 😂. Yas! Love all night long! Then seamlessly into Dancing on the ceiling!
😂😂 I’m just listening to check.. I don’t hear it BUT actually, does our song have a slight whiff of ‘easy’ about it?? I think maybe it does! Just cos it actually IS pretty easy like a Sunday morning.. There are worse peeps to be compared to than Lionel I guess. Get this: I shared it on Facebook and Ad’s mom thought it was me and Ad?!!!!
"Hop" is a French onomatopoeia evoking a swift, sudden move or a little leap.
"Allez, hop!" = let's (jump on our feet and) go.
HES GONE TO GET PIZZA PETER AND I DONT THINK YOU SHOULD BE MAKING YOUR BRIBES PUBLIC
Got your track. I LOVE it.
Re cravate et noeud papillon : C'était pour te faire bosser un peu ton français! 😉
Allez, hop! Moi je vais bosser sur la collab.
And THANK YOU. 😁
can you email me your email address to firstname.lastname@example.org
I want to send you something.
Par hasard, serais-tu jaloux des cravates et des noeuds papillon de Sirius? 🤔
I changed the name to "Encounter" 😉 I don`t know why, but "Devil" just does not seem right as I did not have Devil in my head when I started writing this song.. and.. does it have to be devil? No idea 😉
Haha, nice you clicked.. Actually the title came after the song was already uploaded, still don`t know if it is the right title as it already does a lot before listening to the song (as I realize now..) 😉 Maybe I will change it.. Thanks for listening and commenting, I am happy you liked it!
Sounds great! I'll hopefully get you something tomorrow.
The original Robocop and Total Recall? I see you are a man of culture as well.
However you are hosting your songs my workplace is blocking them.
Ricky was very annoyed to be unmasked... Not cool!
And I don't think you're Trent Reznor to be honest. You are Mike Patton pretending he's Trent Reznor.
And Sirius' bowtie is not just blue, it's metallized blue with pink reflections. And he also has the metallized pink with blue reflections version.
Hells yeah, I'm up for some noise! I'm into all new realms of noise running a guitar through modular synth stuff, wavefolders, subharmonic generators...Let's make some ears bleed
lol, well, I thought you were trying to maintain a measure of anonymity (which'd explain the different aliases). Deep Purple - Hush. Two or three of your aliases had Hush in them (Secret Hush, Legend Hush, S.Hush).
We used the name Pons Asinorum, which literally translates to a Bridge of Asses. 😝
Thanks! Your welcome for the info on Buzz. Happy FAWMing!
See You In The Shadows…
Yeah, I've been a Buzzer since 2005. Oskari (the developer) began re-writing the code a few years back (after he lost the original code due to a hard drive crash) & there's still a community of developers creating new and interesting machines to play with. The new version is much more stable then the pre-crash version. And there's been tons of improvements.
Glad you enjoyed the song. Thanks for stopping by, listening & commenting.
See You In The Shadows…
Hey hey. I've been doing great. Lots of music written, lots of time spent in various gravity taunting positions in ropes, lots of board games played, and all is well in my microcosm. How about you?
Maybe you could reach my bandcamp with one of those newfangled handheld telecommunication devices. Phones, I believe they're called? d:
You wouldn't by chance be someone I've known under at least 3 different aliases and have collaborated with 4-5 times, would you? At least two of those aliases had a lot in common with Deep Purple.
If so, any thoughts about the rebuilding that ol' donkey bridge?
If not so, I probably didn't make a lick of sense, which is just as well, I suppose. (:
I will sing anything you send me...any genre any voice 😀
I've been told you are Trent Reznor?
Take your time, no worries. 😀
I like crazy structures. I spent a lot of time improvising in the olden times, I miss that a lot.
Looking forward to the next stage.
Yassss, Iwilleatyou mail is my favourite mail! 😀
I don’t believe it
Trying to wake up, the weather here isn't doing me any favors. Keep getting the song "Venus in Furs" stuck in my head. But have a feeling it could all be cured with some glorious noise. You got some on tap?
c'est maintenant. Prêt pas prêt
Great to see you here. A collab, perhaps!
jupiter!! hi, you 😀
I bet you I should try not to beat it!! haha. (I plan to be a lot more judicial about what I post this year, least I be filled with regret about far too much bad stuff)
I’m so excited to hear all your sounds, you always run an eclectic spectrum.. it’s amazing 🙏🏻
nice cop out!
Okay, I only really know the 60/70s hits.
Lets sort it out later
Welcome back fellow weirdo 😀
so when you say power-pop - are you talking "You Really Got Me" kind of thing or just anything Kinks style - Waterloo Sunset/Sunny Afternoon whatever
Well yeah I do
Thank you for watching the videos. Yes, these creatures are quick, and Sirius' forest cat morphology makes him particularly good at running, jumping and climbing. When we walk him, he sometimes puts on a sprint - with my boyfriend at the other end of the leash. I can tell you it's fucking funny (from my point of view, not in my boyfriend's opinion, haha.)
Great, I'll let you exert your mixing/mastering art. Thanks in advance. 😀
Oh and no worries on the email, take your time. It took me an eternity to send it, so no rush now.
(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. 😀
Link to Sirius : https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list...
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.
