Influences: Sci-fi, horror, fantasy, fiction, tragedy, rejection, heartache
Back for year NINE! (How?!) My most successful, yet most miserable FAWM so far.
Tracks #6-12 , (possibly)16, 18, and 19 this year are my attempt at a rough, solo, scifi concept album.
Big thanks to those who were open to collabs this year. You saved me.
My ninth FAWM experience, yet again, is an online collaboration with @mdavisto. We met on reddit many years ago and have done a few things since, including three full length albums and a fourth on the way, all written during FAWM. Working around our busy schedules and the time zone difference between the states and South Africa has been quite the challenge over the years, but it's been incredibly rewarding and fun, and I wouldn't be the musician I am today without our experiences.

Ah, that’s so nice of you to say! Don’t think I’ll put them together in any kind of compilation although I may use a couple of them in an upcoming project 😊
Thanks for the comment on 'This must be it' I actually gave him like six or so vocal snips of my voice to add hehe 😀
So glad you enjoyed "The Candle" my collab with Michael Debenham! He did such a great job putting music to lyric. Thanks for dropping by. 😀
Soo cute! They are so attentive. I love their little barks at the end 🙂
I'm always flattered when I'm remembered. "perfection as usual"? bless.
thanks for your kind words <3
Thank you for your big listening sesh <3 I've got a fair few of yours to catch up on over the next few days, congrats on smashing and surpassing 14!
❤️ coming back to repay the favour and support Lauren; thanks for being awesome!
Thank you for reaching out about collabing! C-beams was definitely my favorite track to work on this year, and it gave me enough of a boost to push through the last few days. 🙂 I'd love to work together again at some point! Also, congrats on 20!
Also wanted to say I enjoyed the Android concept album. Lots of emotions in that. I thought it was a really neat idea!
Yes! Right back at ya! Getting rave reviews from my non-FAWM friends also fwiw, as expected. Great working with you and yes. Any time.
Thanks for listening to my tracks and for taking the time to leave such great feedback. Yes, that is all my own voice on Word Association, I used Vocal Synth from Izotope to make the computer voice, with a bit of processing using vocal transformer to get the pitch just right going in. I'd be happy to process some audio files for you if you want to see how it would sound on your voice.
Thanks! Glad you like what we’ve been doing. Trying to build on our sound year over year has been exciting. We may be taking you up on that offer next fawm 😀
I regret I didn't ask you to collab this year after your forum post. Sorry, I would have loved to do that. Maybe next year if you're open to it.
Oh my goodness, 8! Let me know how the doggies react! 😀
Only found your page here on the last day, but I enjoyed all your stuff and the sci fi themes and sounds!
Thanks so much for de-Zonging 'Sing a different song' and for your lovely comments. I'm really glad you enjoyed it. I've just listened to one your tracks and already know I'm going to love exploring everything you've done. 😁
You're so sweet. Thanks for your note on my soundboard. This year has been bonkers workwise. Love what you're doing too, all that exploration. Will give more meaningful comments as soon as I can. 😀
"Cheesecake Voice" - I think I'm stealing that as the name of this album. lol
Hello, thank you kindly for your comments on "Gravity Shifted" and "Lullaby in Crushed Bits"! I agree, dance lullabies should be a thing, right? For days when you both want to just keep sleeping and somehow dance just a tiny bit? 😁
Looking forward to listen to your music now!
Hey, thanks for the kind words, appreciate it alot. Yeah, I feel I've improved some amount from last year, just understanding concepts a little better. But I feel so noobish in the grand scheme of things, there is SO MUCH TO LEARN. Guess that's the beauty of music. We will keep exploring until time is no more. Well then, thank's again for the comments and feedback, and I hope you have a wonderful fawm on the final stretch now:)
Yay! The songs are back! I thought I missed my chance to listen to the newer ones
Hooray - they are back!! 😀
I hope you didn't hit delete in a fit of rage. Hey, rage, milk that emotion! It's not only a great story, but great music and vocals.
I have officially started a song that you can choose to do or not do. But I thought I would let you know I was working on it 😀
Wait... Where di the android songs go? I hadn't finished yet! Ugh!
Well, it all sounds amazing. The sad Android who just wants to be with her people, and the terrifying parts of her lurking just below the surface. You’re onto something great.
I haven't forgotten about you and a song, and AM going to be doing a bunch of listening, but work has been insane. I HATE when work gets in the way of important stuff like FAWM. 😞
Ooh. QWERTY keys? No fun. But I know some people who’ve gotten quite good at it considering the elimination. Here’s to a fun time growing into the new one!
Regarding collaboration, I just sent a message to your SC.
Hey, we use those keyboards at the school I teach at. Do you have a sustain pedal for it? It's great it has a port for a pedal. Not sure if electronic music requires a pedal. WIth piano, it's night and day.
I appreciate your kind words! I'm glad the orgasm song had a positive impact 😊 orgasms for everybody!
Ah, an owner of the Nintendo Switch, very nice! What's your favorite game on it so far?
Hey Lauren! I always look forward to your music. Happy Fawming!
dangit, how did I not comment yet? I've pledged potential fandom to mdavisto - potentially fanfic for you? teehee. FAWMcrush. Don't tell me who you really are please.
Counting down the days until I can hear your fresh sounds again!
Welcome back for another round. I look forward to hearing what you two do this year!
Looking forward to hearing what you come up with this year!
I was watching The Good Place yesterday and there’s this bit where Kirstin goes «wait! that’s not music... that’s EDM!». Then I thought that the show writers really need to listen to Mass Love! and then I thought about beer, but that’s another story
Hi Lauren. Thanks so much for your note on my SB! Can't wait to hear your stuff this year. Inspirational.
Mas Masslove por favor. Hooray!
Yay! Look forward to hearing you again! Happy fawming 😀
I'm an INFP 😀
Wassup! Awwww I sure bet you would miss all those doggies if you DID have to go tour the world! 😛 I never heard of that breed before, coolest name ever for a dog breed! They look gorgeous 🥰
Hallo! Your influences piqued my interest. Have a great FAWM! 😀
Likewise - great to see you here again
Looking forward to the magic you create. I'm glad you two shall be FAWMing once again!
