No songs by this fawmer (yet).
Welcome to FAWM! I’m excited for you to be here - it’s a beautiful community, and I’m sure you’ll find it inspiring!
Thanks for the post on my soundboard, and for considering setting my lyrics. I would only add that I have no feelings to hurt if nothing I write interests you. That being said, I will think of something in the filk vein (although I am way out of touch with contemporary writing). I just read a neat profile of N. K. Jemisin and I'm keen to pick up one of her books.
Welcome! I see "filking" in your bio. It could be that we know some of the same people. 😀
Awesome influences! Watchlisted. Welcome to FAWM!
Ahhhhh! I’m writing a thesis and doing FAWM at the same time! Solidarity!
Nose boop. Saw your forum post. Otters always look like they're having fun. FAWM is like playground - just have fun! (I'm interested in knowing what "reimagining historical sound" is all about.)
I responded to you forum post, but i wanted to add that I'm only writing lyrics this year. Id be pleased if, as an exercise, you took one and set it. If my lyrics don’t inspire you, try the Collaboration Classifieds.
Welcome to FAWM! The System Shock 2 soundtrack is my favourite game soundtrack of all time!
Welcome to FAWM! Relax & have fun. We're a fun bunch and we all try to get outside our own boxes in February. You'll fit right in. Can't wait to hear what you come up with.
See You In The Shadows…
Welcome to FAWM. You'll like it here!
Listening to your soundcloud page-- very cool stuff there. Welcome to FAWM. I hope you'll find us a helpful community!
Hey, welcome to FAWM!!!
Don't worry; the community here is awesomely supportive.
FAWM is so much fun!
I'm liking your influences, too; if you feel up for it perhaps we could do a Collaboration.
