This is my 13th year doing FAWM. I look forward to this every year!

Thank you again and again, Burr Settles, for getting this thing off the ground and keeping it going for these many years.

I have many plans for this year's FAWM. Expect piano (mainly improvised), electronic, stuff with vocals, soundtrackish things... basically all manner of noises may happen here. I also have several other FAWM accounts, all of which I intend to be active in this year. There is also "nictesla((" (Mixed electronic, acoustic, maybe some vocals) and "teslator" (( mainly modular synthesis experimentation, probably just instrumental).

I'm definitely up for collaborations of any kinds. Musical, lyrics, whatever. And I want to do some of the various interesting challenges in the forums. Time will tell! At least this year we get 29 days and not just 28!

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!

    I normally do music and lyrics but I'm out near the desert in a back of a motorhome with little service. may well get music when I get home from touring around May.

    Thanks for your kind words on my song First Day on Campus. I appreciate them.

    At last I'm getting back to you! Sorry it took so long.
    I know about the multiple accounts : all these years I worked with different watchlists, felt the need to complete 14 on EACH profile, and lost track of many comments.
    Now I have a solution that seems to work : I link the second account to my main account through a collaboration. It could work this way for you too maybe?
    I'm going to listen now!
    And thank you for your lovely feedback. <3

    Thank you, once again, for your kind words on:
    1. Slippery Slope - I'm so glad that you got the purpose of my using autotune in this track! Yes, we are, indeed, living in a far too complacent society.
    2. Cyclical - Yeah, I couldn't get the vocals just right to cut through the wall of noise, but then again, the words in most doom/sludge songs are rarely comprehensible. And thank you - in an insomnia-ridden delirium, I was thinking of 3-word clichés to put together to try to tell a story!

    Thanks so much for your really kind words on my collab, “When the water runs out”.

  • @billwhite51 Feb 18

    thank you for listenting to and leaving such encouraging comments on argentina and for peace.

  • @acousticmaddie  Feb 18

    Thank you for your kind comment on our "conversation with death"- collab

  • @writeandwrong  Feb 18

    Wow!! That's awesome! I don't think I could go that long without having to use the bathroom. I definitely want to try up to 2 hours. 90 minutes was so much better than 60 because with 60 I just didn't have enough time "in that state of mind." Definitely want to try different things with it tho! Would like to hear your experience with the longer sessions.

  • @writeandwrong  Feb 17

    Thank you for your kind comments on "Altered States" about the deprivation tank. Isn't it an awesome experience??! I absolutely love it! What's the longest session you've had so far? I am thinking the lyric would be good with something Pink Floydish. 😀

  • @radioovermoscow Feb 15

    Thanks mate. Vocals are the hardest part for me - particularly trying to make 'pop' music with tunes and shit, haha. Takes a lot of work to fix the raw tracks in post... Much appreciated 😀

  • @itoarazi Feb 9

    Ahhh!! So nice to see you back, sir, and thank you for your continued comments on my music!

  • @sentense Feb 7

    Thanks for the encouragement <3 - yes, you're always welcome to throw something at me, it would be an honour for me

  • @kovbleu  Feb 3

    Thank you so much for listening to "Sleepwalking Through Daylight" and leaving a comment for me. I really appreciate it!

  • @aesthetic72  Feb 3

    Thanks for the lovely comment on Dreamcycle!

    I know, right? I've been asking myself the exact question all this weekend. I'm working on the healing part, but it's not easy dealing with this. So many mixed emotions and then my motivation has totally bailed on me. I'll keep pressing though. Thanks for thinking of me, brother. Much appreciated!

  • @songwritingzen  Feb 2

    Hi Roy, thank you for your comments on "What If We Are All Alone." I think that not enough songs are written about these sort of subjects. What do you reckon? 😀

  • @caterwauler  Feb 1

    Glad to see you back, Roy! Looking forward to yours as well, as always.
