Influences: Everything under the sun, and then some more.
Hi all, Melody here. 35 year old music chick from Israel. Pronouns: she/her
My new year's resolution for 2020 was to write 6 songs every month (for a grand total of 72+ songs, as opposed to the 66 total I wrote in 2019, where my resolution was to write 10 each month for the first half of the year). I fulfilled that resolution
What's my resolution for 2021? Well, there wasn't one. The idea was mostly to chill out and take it easy, but I might as well knock out 14 new ones for FAWM for fun.
You're welcome to come listen to the rest of my work on my bandcamp site (that is full of NSFW cover images, be warned.)

You’re welcome! Cool to hear your stuff! I’ve entered the Spintunes thing too, so will be hearing more of you I hope!
Thanks for commenting on my song A veces, and congrats on finishing 14 songs!
Thanks for all your comments this FAWM Melody!
Thanks for your lovely comments on 'Passage of Time' 😀
Many thanks for your kind comment on "When Spring Came" - yes, my wife loved it! 😁 I'm queueing up some listening/commenting for the next couple of weeks, so will catch up with a few of yours shortly!
Hey Melody, thanks for the kind comment! I've popped over to check out your stuff, and am now getting major gear envy looking at that list in your bio 🤤
Thanks for the comment on "Monolithic Halls"! Yeah, I know the vocal style(s) can be divisive, I used to hate harsh vocals too, back when I first got into metal in the late 90s. But it's an acquired taste, I kept listening to some things despite the vocals because I liked the other parts and whaddaya know, a year later I was growling myself. Anyways, I meant to do clean vocals for the first vocal bit but being bad at singing and writing vocal melodies, I got frustrated before I got it to work. But we're gonna rework the song with my band and add the clean vocals.
Ok I see you have a link.. very interesting.. modern production - almost foreboding sense.. To Felline Thoughts
Thanks a lot for your feedback on Earth Grounded, really appreciate it 😀 I see your also a bit of a Roland fan, the bassline is from the SH01A (wish it was a SH101, but hey ho 😉)
Okay..I see you've emailed me stuff and instructions. Leave it with me then. Cheers
Quick work! Okay so music - do you want to create a dropbox folder and drop stuff in it...or something else ?
Hi Melody, Do you have lyrics already? I don't think I've got much in the way of words left in me at the moment, I feel like I'm running out of steam.
Thanks for your comment on Earth-grounded ! 🌻
Thx for kind words on "Wondering"..it was a fun collab
Damn right, you're enough.
Thank you for listening and commenting.
Ha, glad you can relate about having so many song ideas! It is so tempting to just start from scratch all the time. It seems like you still manage to be pretty productive though with your song output. 😁
Also, I appreciate the constructive feedback too! I totally agree that the verse melodies on my last song need some tinkering. Something to revisit in March when the time crunch is over. 😀
WOOOOOOOOOWWWWWWWWWWWWW thanks for your comment on Starburst, about the best compliment I've ever received here.
BAH! you and your 303s. WAR 909! Wait, is that thing silver as well? BAH! whatever. Thanks for the listen 😀
Hi there Melody! heard some of your stuff on Bandcamp, and checked out your general vibe on things via your social media outlets. Great stuff and cool attitude! as they say in your country, it is "ben zona!" lol truly masterful stuff, with a haunting atmosphere!
Hey, I kind of got lost on your Bandcamp page. Lots of great music there. I followed you so I can keep up with what you create. I'll definitely be listening to a lot more of your music when I get the time.
Hi, Melody. Thanks for the comment.
By way of explanation - house prices are rising so absurdly fast here in NZ (and in Wellington especially), that my house is effectively making more money than I am.
Overall, it's on considerably more than the living wage, but if you divide it up room by room it works out as something a bit closer.
Thanks for the kind words Melody 😀
Thanks again for listening to my song. 😀
Hi, Melody. I've already got my antennae out for my next compilation, so I would love to have a copy. You can send it to the e-mail address as per my profile.
Thanks for the demo. It was the sort of lyric that openly defies being put to music, but your treatment of it allows this defiance to sit in the context of non-silence anyway. You've pleasantly surprised me, which FAWM has a habit of doing.
Cheers for your nice comment on "Algorithm is a Dancer".
Thank you for your comment on "Broken Pipeline". Really appreciated:)
"Congrats on reaching 14 so early...."
Thanks! it was helped by good collaborations and also being so psyched up for this one after a year of no live gigs and a single rehearsal with my band back in mid-summer... Sigh.
Thank you for your comments on Sonata in Gm...much appreciated.
Hi again, Melody! I'm looking forward to hearing your music again this year. 😀 Best of luck getting to 14 songs!
Hi @psyt! My demos, haha! Are terrible generally speaking. I try to get a guitar/vocal down on my phone on the weekends. I have a little bitty bit of recording equipment but as of now, have yet to find a space to set it up. (Too many people in a small space and creaky old house.) I can’t let the my high level recording ineptitude stop me from writing. (Especially hard when I hear beautiful music like yours!) Thanks for checking in!
Thank you for the listen ❤
Done! Thanks for the nudge. I'm really self conscious about the fact that I forgot how to mix 😃
glur. no words. this put me in a state.
Hello! Thank you for
listening to Mesmerized! ❤️❤️
Hey Melody! Welcome back and happy FAWMing!
It was the lack of SSL on my old webhost... it's working now
Thanks for listening to my song Flutter. Happy FAWM to you!
What browser were you using when my song wouldn’t play? Oddbod had the same thing happen and I’m trying to find a common denominator to bug report...
Hoping to hear from you this year! Always love your work!
Hi Melody! Happy FAWM, represent for us FAWMtronica folks!
