    Thanks for the Portrait demo...sounds good!

  • @philkmills  Mar 16

    I would definitely like to hear what you've done with Portrait. (I don't know how, at this point. If I mark you as collaborator on it, maybe you can upload audio. (?))

    Naomi, sorry I didn’t get a chance to say goodbye this afternoon but as Carley said, I also enjoyed meeting you and hearing your really clever
    Songs. Keep in touch.

    I super enjoyed meeting you and hearing your songs in person!! Really brilliant stuff. Let’s stay in touch and rock the Somerville uke festival 😀

    I found some of your songs through the filk tag and left a few comments. I see you go to Arisia so are connected with at least some filkers I would know. I haven't made it to that con yet but didmget to one Concertino in that area. Looks like most filkers on FAWM haven't found you here yet. They need to!

    Thanks for your Lovecrafting! I saw you say elsewhere that "writing from chords is alien to you." Lots of folks who say they're writing "music first" might say they have chords, but they're really writing from the groove. For a long time I had a tendency to write more as you described, from the cadence of a few words and the melody that comes with them.

    But the cadence of words has a rhythm, so it functions like a groove. Problem is, it so often presents the same few choices. Long ballads in regular meters result.

    You can learn how to steal the groove of an existing song and take it apart to see what's in it. Pick a song you like and look at what the kick and snare are doing rhythmically. Write that down. What rhythm is the bass playing? Write that down. It takes more than a minute. But if you simplify and slightly change a stolen groove, you may find you have something you can sing along to, and some nearby words will flutter in like moths to a candle. - That's my experience!
