Ha ha, I've returned! What can I say? I'm a masochist and all I want to do is punish myself during February.
Set up is still the same--bare bones, but effective. Laptop, Ableton Live suite, keyboard, monitors, mic, and an electric guitar. Yeah, it sounds low-key sad, but it actually works for me. Also, new toys cost money.
Last year, I wrote a musical, "How to Form a Collective", which was about two A.I.s achieving sentience in space (and falling in love). I had such lovely reactions to it and I enjoyed making it so much. This year, I'll be making another story album/musical, a combination of science fiction and fantasy. Obviously, I'll be bending genres and making weird shit.
Get ready for "The Prophecy of the Red Star"!
EDIT Feb. 28: So, I finished it. I'm sorry for not commenting on songs (or other comments) but this musical fully consumed me. I'm so tired now and I've got so many non-FAWM matters that need attending to. I will do a chunk of listening starting at the end of March because I have some big events in March that I need to prepare for. Last year, I did a lot of my listening in March and April. I like to take my time.

Happy for your trophy and depressed I'm so far behind, but I am determined to hear them all!
I sure did enjoy the ride. You are very talented!
Oh boy! 15! Well done!
I'm rushing to the finish on an attempted DOUBLE-FAWM... You're top of my listening list when I'm done 😃
CONGRATS on your win!! I'm so behind in listening but I can't wait to hear the rest of your awesome musical! <3 You worked SO hard this FAWM!!
Ha ha! I have faith! 😃
And if EVER you need any guitars, just ask... 😎
It would be FAWM without you Mel. I am glad to see you here again.
Hurray for another musical! Bring on the beasts (and have a good one)!
Listening forward to your stuff.
Insane Ian from nerdcore hiphop on FB sayin' hi!
Hey, this is Shaun from your post in the nerdcore group.
Bring it on. I could do with getting over-invested in another of your stories and crying when it finishes.
Hi Mel!! Hope you're back. I always love hearing your music!!! 😊
I am ready for your art....bring it.......
Hope you're around this year. Come on. It's not like you've been busy or anything..........
Hi Mel, I was late to finding your music last year but absolutely loved it - I don’t know if you ever saw my comments.
Looking forward to what 2019 might bring!
