* 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.
No songs by this fawmer (yet).
Just peeping in to see what you're up to. I'm nosy like that!
looking forward to seeing your stuff this FAWM!
I hope you're joining us this year!
Looking forward to hearing your music once again this year! Let's do this thing!!
