This is my 14th year doing FAWM. That amounts to 196 songs if I were to meet the goal of 14 somethings every year... A couple of the years I believe I missed the goal of 14, but other years I more than made up for it. Not that I'm counting...
I just want to express that this time of year is always tremendously inspiring and I think it easily trickles out of February and fuels me for much of the rest of the year, in one way or another.
I look forward to this every year!
Thanks Burr Settles, for creating an inviting and inspiring site for artists the world over to share their quickly created inventions!
My goal this year is to produce a lot of improvised piano, but also some modular synthesizer excursions, semi-orchestral experiments, and so on. I will probably put a lot of the more electronic stuff i produce out on my @teslator or @nictesla fawm accounts.
I wish all of you fawmers, old and new, the very best experience here! Make sounds! Make Music! I look forward to hearing it all!
Thank you for the kind words about "Choir's Back". They're appreciated.
Are you still on the boards at the moment?
Glad you liked my "Greatest Fear" song.
"Amazed at how easy it seems for you to have written such great lyrics so quickly."
Thanks.... but it helps to have been writing songs for 52 years and also to have often worked to a deadline in my old theatre days in which I often had to come up with half a musical over a weekend 😁
Thank you for your kind comments, greetings to your cat! =^.^=
Sorry to hear about the winter storm and power outage. We've had very low temperatures and some snow here, but nothing like you. I hope everything is back to normal now, or will soon be. <3
The 2hp module is “ARP” and I had just got it that day. I put it in my rig, and what I wanted to try first was feeding the CV of a slowly-changing note to the ARP so it would ARP on each of those notes as it came in. Moog says the output I was using sends “audio or CV”, and I guess it was sending audio, not CV. So more experimentation needed. I’m sure there’s nothing wrong with the 2hp module.
Glad you liked me and Doug's 30s pastiche (Nothing but Deluxe)
Hello, Roy!! I look forward to your sounds once again!
Hey Roy, happy FAWM!
Thanks, Roy! Always happy to hear from you. Wishing you a wonderful FAWM. 😀
Hey, looking forward to some ivory entanglements
And you too! Here's wishing you a successful FAWM! 😁
Hello.. Thanks for dropping by. Are we both class of 2008 ers? That's a long time of fawming together. Here's to another great year.
Hope you have a great FAWM 2021! I think a lot of us need this this year. I look forward to hearing your new music.
I'm working on trying to get some gear together so that I can record. If I am able to do so, maybe we could make a collab happen.
Welcome back, my man. All the best to you as well!
