FAWM #11

Last year was a bit crap due to things; this year there are better things to balance out the things from last year so all the things will make this year rawk! Let’s collab and write songs!

    Hi, thanks for stopping by. I noticed about halfway through FAWM, "Fork in the Road" (as well as several other songs on the site) doesn't play in Chrome until I changed the settings to allow insecure content on fawm.org. Otherwise, it seems to work on other browsers. (Found that tip in one of the forums and it worked.)

  • @cts  Mar 8

    Hey man - email sent and folder updated.

  • @mariekevinkmusic  Mar 6

    @kristian : Yes please to collab. I LOVE your stuff and frankly, any kind of treatment you give my stuff would be cool. If you do 50/90, we can do something there?

  • @boyatheart Mar 6

    Hey Kristian thanks for commenting on "Move On". I sang the BVs. If you were able to hear them in isolation you'd hear the imperfections for sure. I did some work getting them to blend in to hide the flaws whilst keeping them audible! πŸ˜€

  • @teapot Mar 1

    Genuinely, thank you for the spectacular comment! So heartwarming ❀

  • @ryuu  Feb 29

    Thanks for your comment on "Clouds in my head". Yeah, the source code was written by me, borrowing a snippet or two from the help files and different tutorials. And yeah, I can totally read "nerd" as a compliment πŸ˜€

  • @katmtl Feb 29

    Hey Kristian! I’m glad you liked β€œPikachu’s Revenge”! It was so fun!❀️❀️

  • @judypie  Feb 29

    How many indeed! I reeeally wanna make one more but apparently the @zecoop drums I picked aren’t in 4/4 and I never wrote a song that isn’t in 4/4 before so lolllllll at trying to figure out what time signatures are and how to play guitar appropriately. πŸ˜‚ #theeleventhhour!

  • @oddbod  Feb 28

    Glad to see you hit the 14...and thanks for the collab.
    You really put out some quality ear candy this year my friend. A vintage year I think

  • @deena  Feb 28

    You did it, wow! Congratulations. You had an amazing FAWM, so many wonderful songs... so many great sounds, full of joy! I was so delighted to collaborate with you. Thanks for all your comments. Yes, I'll take more synth from you, anytime!

  • @owl  Feb 27

    Congrats on the FAWM win! I'm so happy we got to collab this year <3 Take care, till next time!

  • @ryuu  Feb 26

    Thanks for your nice comment on "To Bragi" again! Keeping time and pitch a cappella - well, there's really no secret or shortcut that I'm aware of. I can recommend singing in a choir for a few years (especially middle voice), and singing some Swing Jazz - the latter will force you to internalize the beat quite strongly. It's still way easier when you're doing it live with other people in the same room than with yourself on multiple tracks of a recording πŸ˜€

  • @judypie  Feb 25

    WTJF!

  • @judypie  Feb 25

    IN CASE YOU MISSED IT KRISTIAN, duhhhhhhh πŸ˜›

  • @ryuu  Feb 25

    Just here to let you know that music for "To Bragi" is up!

  • @aesthetic72  Feb 23

    Thanks for your comment on Stay. I'm going to have to take some time to get over it. It was so deeply emotional for me. I had to cry all the tears before I could even approach it vocally. @zecoop's piece is so beautiful and I feel lucky to have him put this one aside for me, even though I resisted it a bit first.

  • @standup  Feb 22

    Hey, thanks for checking out some of the stuff I'm doing.

    Something happened to the link in "Monster Suit", and it's fixed now. Glad you called that to my attention!

  • @sapient  Feb 22

    Hey, don't blame me - blame the Russian number stations for writing such awful melodies! 😁

  • @sapient  Feb 22

    Oh, man the chords for Pattern Repeating... they HURT... both to work out and to play πŸ˜‰
    Bear in mind that my guitar is tuned down a whole step, but if it wasn't, the main chords would be C#m7#5, Fmaj7Bb/A and Dm6.
    Ouch πŸ˜‰

  • @metalfoot  Feb 21

    Thanks so much for doing a song with me!!

  • @judypie  Feb 20

    YES, I know what it means and FWIW, you’re using it wrong. πŸ˜› Catch u on the flipside!

  • @judypie  Feb 20

    Yes, I can quite clearly see that Kristian! πŸ˜› I thought I was spelling out shit for u, not the other way around??

  • @judypie  Feb 20

    FYI, FYI means FOR YOUR INFORMATION.

  • @frozenlonesome Feb 18

    Glad you like the "ear candy" on Got The Message. Much appreciated.

  • @hakk  Feb 18

    Hyggelig! Lykke til med resten av Fawm!

  • @hakk  Feb 18

    Delvis riktig! Opprinnelig fra Finland.

  • @judypie  Feb 18

    Never put your cup of tea near your cup of urine. Take heed.

  • @tfish77 Feb 17

    OK so when are you going to release a proper album with a different guest vocalist/lyricist on each track, and also can I please be one of them?

  • @iwilleatyou  Feb 14

    Choo.

  • @iwilleatyou  Feb 14

    It sounds like this----> *sophisticated laugh*

  • @iwilleatyou  Feb 14

    Me jealous? *sophisticated laugh* God's among men can *never* be jealous *sophisticated laugh*.

    .....and yet some more *sophisticated laugh*


    ...ok last sophisticated laugh. Promise.

  • @iwilleatyou  Feb 14

    No. He was excited because your contract is expired.

  • @iwilleatyou  Feb 14

    Already bought the book. The pages make great toilet paper!

  • @iwilleatyou  Feb 14

    What are you an idiot? A million dollars for an E.P.?? That is the dumbest thing I ever heard. Julie and I have already agreed on the price and being reasonable people, we are sticking with $599 for a two song E.P.

  • @judypie  Feb 14

    AGREED

  • @judypie  Feb 14

    Oooh not like me to miss a fuck, I’ll add it! 😝

  • @kahlo2013  Feb 13

    Aww .. thanks, you are kind!

  • @iwilleatyou  Feb 12

    The punk version of EVE will be available on the EP. There'll be a bandcamp link once FAWM is over. It's going to cost about $599. We're so worth it.

  • @frozenlonesome Feb 12

    Thanks for listening and commenting on Floating in Shallow Pools. Glad you enjoyed it. πŸ˜€

  • @owl  Feb 11

    Thanks kristian for the comments and encouraging words!

  • @caterwauler  Feb 11

    Now you make me blush... Thank you, you are too kind. πŸ˜€
    I've just noticed you are not in my watchlist - you were in Mojo's one... It's fixed now. Will be back to listen to your other songs.
    Re the library : when people ask, I just reply "Caterwaulerβ„’" πŸ˜‚

  • @musicsongwriter  Feb 11

    Thank you so much Kristian for your kind comments.

  • @oddbod  Feb 10

    Cheers bro 😁 - I've brought the vocals up a bit on your advice

  • @radioovermoscow Feb 10

    Thanks! I'm saving the hearts for a couple of songs I'm working on which I know are better than that one 😝

  • @bandybum Feb 10

    Hi Kristian,
    Wow. You made my day!
    Thanks so much for your "awesome" comment on Faraway Years. No one's ever called one of my songs awesome before 😁
    I love your productions - what a fabulous rich sound you achieve.
    Let's collaborate! πŸ˜€

  • @caterwauler  Feb 9

    Thank you so much for your kind words, I'm touched!
    Every song of yours I've heard was brilliant, so these are huge compliments coming from you.
    (Not sure if you know we've regularly been in touch for years on FAWM : I'm @mojo's human.)

  • @cindyrella  Feb 9

    Thanks for your nice comments on my Late

    I’m just gettin’ warmed up, my man. We’re gonna make jelly!

  • @tjeff  Feb 8

    Hi, thanks for listening & commenting on a song. Gave a great FAWM!

  • @musicsongwriter  Feb 6

    Thank you also for your kind comment on Dad.

  • @musicsongwriter  Feb 5

    Hi Kristian, thank you so much for your kind comment on Add. My music is always open to suggestions and interpretations, I think all so much depends on our own visions when we listen to the music. When I was composing it I imagined that it could be about wishing for something so much but knowing that it is not meant to be, still hoping for a miracle and thinking if we wish hard enough it will happen... but it wouldn't still hence it finishes in minor key. I often say to my piano students that minor is not always sad and Major is not always happy but minor here with the music going down to me symbolises that the wish wouldn't be granted. So yes sad is the emotion I would use. But this is just my vision. I'm sure everyone will feel differently and often a lot depends on in what mood we are listening to music. The same music can be perceived differently...

  • @aesthetic72  Feb 4

    Thanks for the nice words about my second track! As a Canadian, self-deprecation is part of my cultural identity. It’s such a hard habit to break! πŸ˜€

  • @cts  Feb 4

    Send an idea to me...

  • @katmtl Feb 4

    Hey there! I think you know Robyn, and I would like to collaborate with you. Can you please collaborate with me?

  • @mistermann Feb 4

    PING! Sorry for the long latency. Sent you an email.

  • @debs  Feb 4

    I would love to, my friend!

  • @owl  Feb 3

    Thank you for commenting on "Squid Linguistics"! I see you are already off to a great and speedy start with those collabs!

  • @oddbod  Feb 3

    me too, hence why I emailed you at that ungodly hour!
    Lyric writing on the train is my only solace

  • @cts  Feb 3

    I'm working on it, my friend. It's just very tough to get started. Jelly will be coming.

  • @oddbod  Feb 3

    you should have mail - Cheers

  • @inger  Feb 2

    Thanks for commenting on The Ghost! Don't tell anyone, but I had to count using my hands every time while singing. Had to record the piano first and overlay the vocals for that reason - I hope I learn to play this thing and sing at the same time at some point!

  • @oddbod  Feb 2

    Hi Kristian
    I have something which I hope you might work some of your arrangement and synth magic on. Shall I send you some tracks by email?

  • @joshlevitre Feb 2

    Country/folk is my bread and butter πŸ˜€ feel free to send something my way. I’m a bit slower this year, fyi.

  • @thedutchwidows  Feb 2

    That's awesome!

  • @frozenlonesome Feb 2

    Thanks for listening and glad you enjoyed Discretion. Yes, other than the voice samples were created in Gadget for iPad. In fact other than the beats which are Reclife, all other sounds from Lexington the Korg ODYSSEi app. I then exported the stems to AuriaPro and added FX on the stems. Finally post processed in AudioMastering.

  • @karlsburg25  Feb 2

    Hey matey . Welcome to fawm 20/20 an you already flying . Woohoo

  • @cowex  Feb 1

    Hi Kristian! I've got a weird request. Would you mind sharing an audio clip(s) on the "Some assembly required" challenge thread? https://fawm.org/forums/topic/10033/ I'd love to assemble a song that includes some of your musical DNA. EDIT: Got'em, that's perfect. Thank you so much!

  • @coolparadiso  Jan 31

    Whoo to you too! Happy almost-FAWM. I would love to do something together... No idea what, but just putting that out there. πŸ˜€

  • @spiderhound1  Jan 30

    @kristian - Thanks for stopping by my board! So psyched for FAWM this year. I am glad that you are in my watchlist. HAVE FUN! πŸ˜€

  • @musicsongwriter  Jan 27

    Hi Kristian, thank you so much for your kind reply. FAWM 2010 was my first one and it's especially dear to me thanks to our collaboration of Dancing Snow which I absolutely love. Every collaboration with you was amazing and very special but I hold Dancing Snow as a dearest to me.
    Have a fantastic time. I'll be delighted to collaborate with you if you get the chance. Can't wait to hear your amazing music.

  • @musicsongwriter  Jan 26

    Hi Kristian, can't wait to hear your new music. Hope we collaborate if you get the chance. Have a great Fawm.

    Awesome! I left the power industry to pursue music full time, but I still keep up with the industry. Lots is changing, so it's an exciting time πŸ˜€

  • @meadows  Jan 22

    Hey @kristian ! I like your German skills a lot! And I swear some day I will write a song about the "Kartoffel" – it's delicious. 😁

    Have a nice FAWM!!!

  • @metalfoot  Jan 22

    Maybe this year we can do something together if time/schedule works out?

  • @natrin Jan 20

    Hello, have a great FAWM! 😁

    Collab? Yes yes yes!

  • @johncrossman  Jan 17

    Similarly, I've heard that whenever you enter a room, awesome electronic sounds announce your arrival. Granted, I may have heard it from you.... Looking forward to hearing what you come up with this Feb!
