2020... wow. When I started this back in 2009 I'd only ever "finished" a handful of tracks. To date, I've finished over 100, mostly thanks to FAWM and 50/90. 12 years since my first FAWM, this will be the tenth I've participated in.

I've been looking forward to this, can't wait to hear all your stuff.

Last year was a real confidence booster for me, I was traveling a lot at the beginning of the month but had caught up (7 done) by mid-month. I got into modular synths after Moogfest last year, so there will be some incorporation of that. I'm more pissed off than usual, so be prepared for the effects to permeate the output.

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 2020-02-10. This smacks of effort man. Lots of time spent but feeling like the diminished output is worth the time spent on it.

Update 2020-02-14. I totally put 2010 on my previous update. I am an idiot. Also, I'm actually taking that trip to the other coast I mentioned in "better things," so I'll be in a very stripped down version of myself and without my trusty new Moog... will be good to do something outside of my optimized setup for a few days from San Francisco.

    And thank you for letting me collab on Keepalive. It was one of the highlights for me this FAWM. Take care & we'll chat again soon.

    See You In The Shadows…

  • @electrocelte Feb 29

    I was aiming for something kind of Pixies-ish but I don’t know at a certain point it felt like a Fist pumping metal anthem. 🦋 Thanks for listening!!!

  • @candle  Feb 28

    Oh & congrats on the FAWM win. I just noticed that. I'll be back tonight to listen to your latest offering. Gotta head back to work to teach a class LOL.

    See You In The Shadows…

  • @candle  Feb 28

    P.S. I didn't realize Ambient Poker was a thing. Now I want to write a song called that. LOL

    See You In The Shadows…

  • @candle  Feb 28

    Wow, that was quick! You must have listened to Turtle as soon as I posted it. Thank you so much for the comment. I really appreciate it. I need to catch up on the songs of yours that I've missed. Will be back soon to listen 😀

    See You In The Shadows…

  • @jeustan  Feb 26

    Yeah I mean I’ve come this far, I wanna finish! I may also be a stripped down version of myself if I don’t get the last ones in before I head to Nashville this week.

    I’ll come back and give your stuff a listen. Thanks for saying, “Hey!”

  • @medievil Feb 25

    Thank you very much for taking the time to listen and give feedback. Very appreciated. "Slowed-down jungle" sounds like a cool assessment. I like that point of view.

  • @cherok40  Feb 24

    Thanks a lot for listening!

  • @aesthetic72  Feb 23

    Not entirely. @zecoop's track he sent me laid out the sonic red carpet for me. So again I had the easy job of plunking my vocals in there. 😀

  • @aesthetic72  Feb 23

    Thanks for your lovely comment on Stay. They mean a lot. Kristian didn't mix this, tho. I did. I have some nice vocal plugins. It's all zecoop instrumentally - he gave me a mix with so much mid space that it was really easy for me to plunk my lyrics and vox in there. The hard part was the subject matter - a heart breaker.

  • @nahlej381  Feb 22

    thanks for the feedback! i do love some steve albini lol. i'd love to make some music with you. get ahold of me anytime! aburozskiwork@gmail.com

    PS: i think its something to do with the air in the midwest? or the stress of being the crossroads of 'merca maybe? not sure but damnit, i feel my feelings!

  • @candle  Feb 18

    Wow, thanks for the Verve comparison. I do get rather shoegazey at times & it's nice that you noticed it. Thank you so much!

  • @chasingandromeda  Feb 16

    Sweetwater called me about a deal on the Matriarch, but I passed since I had just purchased the Hydrasynth, which is very tasty but has not yet made an appearance on one of my tracks. I hope to change that before FAWM ends.

  • @marvsmooth  Feb 15

    I've now made the song Follow downloadable - https://fawm.org/songs/104398/

  • @candle  Feb 15

    I'm having problems logging into my Facebook (I can't remember the last time I logged on, to be honest). Could you send the link to my email? darbyspicer at gmail dot com

    Or if it's easier, I could create a Dropbox folder to share with you. Let me know what works best.

    See You In The Shadows…

  • @sciren  Feb 15

    Hey! Thanks for all your great feedback again this year! You are too kind. I'm really glad to know I'm not the only one who prefera their voice covered in effects. 😆 I'm so jealous you were at Moogfest, I've been wanting to go for years!

  • @candle  Feb 15

    Sounds like fun, Loop. If you want to send me a link to the file, and let me know what you're thinking, I'll see what I can do.

    See You In The Shadows…

    I don't know how much I will be here, but I am going to give it a go. Have a fantastic month. As always, I am looking forward to listening to your work.

  • @mdavisto  Jan 25

    Hi @looprication, you're looking for @sciren. Thanks for your kind words; have a lovely fawm.

  • @elesimo  Jan 22

    Happy FAWM, @looprication! Looking forward to hearing your songs!

  • @aeye Jan 20

    Hey so I haven't played with it as much yet because I also still use regular old Massive. It does have some pretty wild new sounds and I feel like the UI is a bit friendlier to use. You should be able to reduce the CPU load by turning off some of the fancy 3D effects it has. Preset wise I think it's a good start, and it's pretty easy to tweak and adjust the existing ones. I haven't really dove into making my own patches with it. ( they added a bunch of new ones with the last update)

  • @vomvorton  Jan 20

    Hey! I'm not sure I know how NOT to come back at this point, haha. New pic is my cat Agnès, I will pass on your compliments!

  • @adforperu  Jan 20

    Hey man, good to have you back! Not long now..

  • @cts  Jan 19

    His cousin is me! Dude’s legit.

  • @tesla3090  Jan 19

    Glad to see you're back as well! Can't wait to get this started

  • @tjfafterdark Jan 19

    I think it would be pretty tight if we could produce a track together. I believe you know my cousin.

  • @kristian  Jan 19

    @sciren 😀 you’re welcome!

  • @heliosonorous Jan 19

    I enjoyed your output last year and look forward to listening to more this year!

  • @guatecoop  Jan 18

    Thank you. Thankfully that is my other brother, so you can still watch him. It was our elder brother who passed away. I appreciate you stopping by to share that.

  • @kristian  Jan 16

    Loop!! Join the fawmily this time too yeah?

  • @cts  Jan 16

    What up, my dude! Once more, shall we?

  • @candle  Jan 15

    Looking forward to your output this year, Loop. Happy FAWMing

    See You In The Shadows…

  • @bootlegger Jan 10
