2019 will be the 10th anniversary of my first FAWM. I've been looking forward to this, can't wait to hear all your stuff.

Last year was my first in three years, and my first one here in RVA. I was probably happiest with my 2018 output since when I found you in 2009. Thanks to all you wonderful freaks who make this community what it is. Super stoked to be back.

I've been writing/producing electronic music under the moniker of looprication since 2000.

UPDATE 2019-02-10
Spent almost every waking hour this weekend in the studio and I'm almost caught up. Travelling those first two weeks was rough, and I hate to get behind at the beginning.

Fourteen days, seven tracks, I'm back on schedule, hooray! Yes I'm a little OCD, what of it? Yes I'm a little OCD, what of it? Yes I'm a little OCD, what of it?

    I was able to get all the songs from the album downloadable on soundcloud if you still wanted to grab them.

  • @bootlegger Feb 28

    I think I'm going to go through and make them download able through soundcloud directly.

  • @bootlegger Feb 26

    Thank you very much for the kind words. 😀

  • @crimulus  Feb 25

    Thanks so much for the comment on the 5/8 timing. I _love_ 5/8, and I'm convinced I can make it more approachable that it seems at first glance, so I take it as the HIGHEST compliment to hear you say I made it "sound so fluid and natural." Big validation for me, and thank you so much for saying so.

    If I made one comment this FAWM that made someone feel that good, then I won at life. And I hope your wife likes it too. 😀

  • @fulanin Feb 24

    That's sad. 😞
    I have already lost some pets in the past, but I like to think I gave them the best life I could.

    Thanks for the great comment on The Mellow Road. I fought with it for a few days & finally gave up on Parts II & III. Posted Part I & said "Good enough for FAWM." I might go back & revisit it, but I'm not sure.

    See You In The Shadows…

  • @ianuarius  Feb 22

    Hey, thanks for a really cool song! 😀

  • @fulanin Feb 22

    I'm not exactly a fawmtronic artist, but I try to dabble with it sometimes. haha

  • @theawkwardsleep Feb 20

    You are so productive. We have not done anything. Except a quick song the other day - but no production of it - just a quick video 😀 on my facebook 😉 Ill be by to listen soon!

  • @krrisstin Feb 2019

    Thanks for your comments on my music 😀 I live in a small apartment, and sometimes I can hear my neighbors while I'm recording vocals, and it makes me super self conscious and so I just take what I can get as song sketches for now.

  • @candle  Feb 2019

    Wow, thank you for the huge complement on my Oligarchy songs. I've never been one to be able to write classical music - but I have sometimes dreamed of that. So to have someone say I achieved that sort of songsmithing, well, that's huge! Thank you!

    If you ever want to know my methodology, don't hesitate to ask. I like talking about it. The process of talking about my production techniques helps me analyse them & create new methodologies.

    See You In The Shadows…

  • @candle  Feb 2019

    Thank you for the great comment on Forgiveness. Yeah, I like doing one-take live-to-tape songs. They seem to flow so nicely. I'm glad this song turned out contemplative. That was the idea.

    See You In The Shadows…

  • @deathboy  Feb 2019

    Your list of influences reads like my 'favourites' directory in my mp3 collection 😁 awesome!

  • @candle  Feb 2019

    Thanks for the great comment on Ming Tiger. I'm so far behind on my watchlist. I need to get to your songs. I will be back soon with my comments!

    See You In The Shadows…

  • @chasingandromeda  Feb 2019

    Outstanding use of it, I might add. One of my favorite devices.

  • @heuristicsinc  Feb 2019

    Hmm, I just inserted Maschine as a VST into Acid, and used the Song Arranger mode to trigger the scene changes internal to Maschine. I thought it worked surprisingly well.

  • @heuristicsinc  Feb 2019

    What workaround? Curious, not sure what you mean. Will check out your songs at first opportunity... i.e. not when I have just sat down to record, myself 😀

  • @candle  Feb 2019

    Thanks for the kind words on my Flying Saucer, Loop. I'm always happy when people peak into my shadows 😀

    See You In The Shadows…

  • @wolfkier Jan 2019

    Thanks for the warm greeting. Nice to be back and looking forward to participating as much as possible. Bring yummy stuff, my friend. Have a great FAWM19!

  • @solarrainuk  Jan 2019

    Thanks Loops! Yeah I'll be around

  • @bootlegger Jan 2019

    I love how eclectic your influences are. Can't wait to see what you come up with.

  • @marthie Jan 2019

    Welcome back to the get-down, my friend. The doors to the jelly factory are open for you if you’re so inclined! Happy FAWMing!

  • @captainvulpine  Jan 2019

    Why wouldn't I be? This is the year we collaborate, innit?

  • @theawkwardsleep Jan 2019

    We're gonna try to do this, but life is life and we're also recording our first album in ten years right now.

  • @candle  Jan 2019

    Hello sir, Happy FAWMing this year!

    See You In The Shadows…

  • @syni Jan 2019

    Hey!! Yep I'm planning on doing some stuff this year, excited to hear what you come up with!

  • @caterwauler  Jan 2019

    You've posted that because you know I have a song called "Here, Now", right?

  • @shortdan  Jan 2019

    You're too kind! Good luck this year - I'll be back for the tunes 😀

  • @chasingandromeda  Jan 2019

    I think we should make that dance happen

  • @elesimo  Jan 2019

    Hi, @looprication! Excited for this year, and looking forward to your looprications! 😀

  • @chasingandromeda  Jan 2019
