Artist Bio

* 2020 PLAN

Lots of possible plans for this year:

- Finishing my half-completed Bigfoot album with my friend Jay Mayo.

- Doing some songs with the ukulele I started learning last July, including some with my friend Mitch, with whom I've already started working on an album by "Mitch 'n' Odilon's Good-Time Trumpet and Ukulele Combo Band."

- A potential synth-based rap concept album.

- A couple beard songs, as always.

- Finishing any of the myriad of half-completed albums strewn across my hard drive over the last several years.

- And of course, the "random nonsense that comes to mind and strikes me as fun" that's always a bedrock of my FAWM experience!

So I'm certainly not short of ideas! I'm not sure which projects will actually get done, but I *am* sure that, after several years of success but failing to reach 14 last year, I *will* be winning again this year!


In junior high a long, long time ago, I elected to take flute as my required instrument. Unfortunately, in my second year, I was put in a third-year class due to a scheduling conflict. Being so far behind everyone else made me miserable. As a result, I did . . . unfortunate things to my flute to sabotage it in order to try to get out of class.

The repair guy figured it out pretty quick.

Nonetheless, while I've always enjoyed a very active listening relationship with music, the whole experience pretty much killed any interest I had in making my own. Until over twenty years later, when for some reason I picked up a keyboard and a computer DAW.

And now, I'm loving every minute of it.

    Hey there! Hope everything's okay with you. I just noticed you haven't been posting in the past week or so.

  • @rayboneor  Feb 25

    Hmmm...there's been a disturbing lack of OG lately. Hope you are well!

  • @klaus  Feb 22

    Hi Odilon. Thanks for the comments. It's so nice to hear your songs again and especially hear you sing. You got a nice voice. And the themes and ideas you have are just top-notch!

  • @downburst  Feb 5

    Thanks for your kind comment! It's good to be on the board, after punking out last year.

  • @meadows  Feb 3

    Thank you very much for your kind comment on my first song! 😀

  • @franniezest Feb 3

    Thank you for checking out my song !

    Oh, the software I did write was successful at generating VTT closed caption files that could be used for karaoke-style purposes. (It highlighted the current word differently than the current line.) It briefly worked well in one browser, so that same year I had some sing-along stuff. I need to tweak the output to work more generally, but it's functionality that's less frequently seen. I could spin off that functionality in to its own app, too.

    At the time, I was working on something to allow me to add instrumentation as a post-processing step to my acapella stuff with uneven time. I may still revisit that one, though I have another perspective on how to accomplish it.

    Early on in the development of that software, I was experimenting with writing software that could just make music. I had a system where I could specify the chord progression and just walk through it while I sing. I directly used that in 2017 on at least one song -- https://yam655.com/j/2017-02/03_r2052/ -- though I further post-processed things for some of the others.

    I may be revisiting the "chordbox" approach I used. I ran in to some issues with it, but as a dedicated product it would be totally manageable.

    Basically: Tap computer keyboard buttons to generate MIDI chords. Be smart about the key. Ignore tempo.

    Thanks for your kind comments on my skirmish song "Play With Me." I remember that small kiss on the playground in the midst of a game of "Kill the Girls/Kill the Boys".

    Hi!!! Sounds like a wonderfully ambitious FAWM. I may have to write a beard song!

  • @radioovermoscow Feb 1

    Thanks boss! I've got some pretty interesting topics in mind, and production skills have improved a bit on last year too... should be good!

    Yo! I'm bringing enthusiasm this year if nothing else. I'm looking forward to your foray into ukulele music!!

  • @valeriecox  Jan 30

    Thanks. I change my profile pic every year as is the old way when the profile pic was the album cover. 😀

    "synth-based rap concept album" YES! That's exciting. 😀

  • @atitlan  Jan 30

    Good to see you back for another FAWM. I hope to avoid instrumentals this FAWM if I can. Musically, expect the usual mix of synths and samples.

  • @johnstaples  Jan 30

    Hey OG! So glad to see you back here for another round of FAWM frenzy! Can't wait to hear what fun and frivolity you create for us this year!
