GLAD TO HEAR THAT!!!!!`
Go for 50/90 you will do great as usual!!
🎵we are FAWMily 🎵
Hey, thanks for stepping by and listening to my newer songs! Your feedback is always so full of great pointers and fun things you notice, that even I haven't noticed while creating! Really looking forward to meeting you again next year!
Thank you so much for taking the time to check out my skirmish song "I Can't Wait". I save my archive and review and consider all comments as I'm going back over my fawm songs. Many thanks to you again, splitty!
Thanks for the listen!
Thank you so much for your appreciation and kind comments on 'Identity' 😀 I'm glad it could convey the growth trajectory that I intended...
"I definitely hear the influence, great homage!
Loving everything about it - those vocal backings are perfect.
The music here is so well done. Excellent arrangement and instrumentation throughout - loving the rhythm guitars dancing with eachother.
Love how you took some of the melodies from Boogie Nights and morphed them into something your own.
Excellent era-worthy lyrics, too.
Digging this thoroughly!"
- Splitty, you just made my day! Thank you so much 😀
Hey would love to collab at some point, probably not this month but you are DOPE 😉
Thank you much for the comments. Appreciate yah!
Thanks for your listen and comments on Clap Your Hands. I don’t miss those booster days either! Though I wouldn’t mind a campfire evening one of these days! 😁
Thanks for the lovely comment! I found it quite hilarious as well, because if I'm going to play piano, it's an old upright so other "normal" people have to hear it so I tend to take it pretty easy 🤣
Thank you so much for your lovely comments on our first go at a skirmish 😀
Thank you so much for your appreciation and kind comments on 'Aces', I know I need to rework it a lot. Thank you for your kindness. 😀
Holy smokes, you’ve been dealing! I was thinking about you the other day—wondering how your fawm was going. Apparently pretty well! Are you liking your songs? I will be back for some listening. Thanks for the comment and, yes, the mood was very solitary, late, and somber, but not down. I was really taken by how dark it sounded this morning! Thanks for listening.
Please do! That would make me stupidly giddy. 🎂😂
Thanks you so much for your kind remarks on Neon! I really enjoyed making it ( I too love a good arp!)
You definitely deserve a break AND a cake! C'mon don't be so hard on yourself! Thanks so much for your nice comments!
Bootlick Company is an engima, it cannot be explained 😝 Thanks for the comments!
Regarding the last part if you ever want to collab in a future 50/90 or FAWM I'd be super down for that!
Thanks for your lovely, detailed comments on ‘Be Careful What You Wish For’! I will take a listen to your stuff later and comment. 🙂
thanks for the lovely comment about MMOWH. I'm not sure my mind is a particularly safe space, but I'm glad it made sense. 😀 Oh BTWs. that's me playing over and over your cover of A Flock of Seagulls on your SC account. It happens to be one of my favorite songs ever written and I really like what you did with it. My weeks are insane - I write for a living (not creatively obvi) but those two forms of writing exist in different area codes of my brain. So it takes some time to travel to and from. Hoping I can get back to more writing this weekend. I owe kristian a song.
oh man, thanks for your comment on turbo golf
basically, I found a bunch of 90s rompler vsts and just went ham. I'm a fan of "old" "productivity music" so i took a few cues from that, and I think it sounded best in "turbo golf", so I'm happy to see others agree
Thanks so much for the insightful comments on my song!
I learned how to do a stanky leg this morning. It’s not very stanky yet but I’m working on it. Thank you!
Hi there.. I think I sounded a bit glib in my response to your note re collabing in the forums. I was reacting in part to a couple of knock backs I'd had .. and responding more from the point of view of thinking of the others who didn't actually appreciate the wonderfulness of having a creative link, and rather focussed in on whether it was what they'd had in mind. But... I wrote a lyric about it all. Here goes: https://fawm.org/songs/116401/..
Hey man, thanks so much for the comments - it’s great finding artists on here that you really dig and then finding they like your stuff too! I’m gonna have a deep dive into your songs in the next few days - can’t believe how productive you’ve been. I’m struggling to hit the target really, but just delighted for this to have given me the kick to start recording music again
Hey there, thanks for the listen and great comment. Was fun to work on that (had to create a "disco" progression, and the drums (three types) were out of control, but definitely pushed myself into new territory. Agreed, those lyrics were a pleasure to work with.
Agreed..I will seek our someone. Thx..
I appreciate the kind comments! To answer your question, I use a Yamaha DGX-650 digital piano, set to "Ambient Grand." It's all MIDI, but I think it gives off a good sound still.
Also I see you're at 14 songs, impressive! Going for double FAWM this year by any chance? 😁
...and I should mention, good sir, that your influences are pretty awesome, and they shine through in the demos I've heard.
Cannot claim credit for the drums, these are patterns from Superior Drummer 3 by Toon track but they do groove. Everything else is me and my trust6 samplers.
Thank you for you nice comment on Pants. Appreciate it.
Thx for your kind words on Leave your Mark...we are hunting for a vocalist to finish off the song. You think anybody you know would like to sing it?? I was thinking , when i wrote the music that there was a female voice in my head. Thx again for the comments
Thanks for your very kind comment on my jazz number. The arrangement I barely changed from the original i plunked in there via the midi pack. And the change I made wasn't particularly effective because I am not a jazz pianist and those chords are whack! I actually had to sit down with my keyboard and find the melody in those chords bc I couldn't do it on my own. Then when I had the melody I ended up singing it a little differently. I guess that's why those jazz chords are so jazzy - they are so fricking wide open for lots of riffing. I also had to add the cheesy brush kit so I could tell where I was in the world while singing it. But I am fairly happy with it (i've never written a jazz number before only sang about 45,000 standards.) My voice: well, since I am the owner of said voice, I hear all the mistakes. But I appreciate your appreciation. And yeah, shoulder pad pop - I was there, so I can say it with some authority 😝
Oh, thank you for your nice comments!
Thanks for the comment...the reverse engineering thing was just a complicated way if saying I started with the donated arp and was trying to match the beats up after, usually start the way round. Love the novation stuff, especially the circuits, they're great sketchpads
Wow! Thanks so much for the detailed and kind comments on Out Of This World. It’s hard to believe but the source for the vocals was essentially a promotion for Frigidaire. Much appreciated!
I'm glad you liked my D&D chant! I definitely shared it with my group before we played last night and was gratified to learn that one of my fellow players was singing it to her cats earlier. 😁
Thank you very much for your comment on "My star" - gratitude
Hi, thank you so much for your super nice comment on "Dreaming of Dystopia". Do buy Disco Elysium, really, it's a fantastic game if you're into "deep" RPGs. And weird ones. With weird choices. Soundtrack is also great!
I'm enjoying your music very much, looking forward to your next track already!
I can't wait to play the ME remaster, but I would have prefered Andromeda 2 to be honest.
However, I'm not pre-ordering yet. I'm waiting for a few reviews before buying it 😀
Thanks for your nice comment on Asian folk phase 😀
First plucked instrument was indeed a Koto. The other one was Guzheng
Alright, cool. I was beginning to wonder why you were still up at this hour? It's funny @steffan used to ask me the same question back in the early years of FAWM. I'm normally not a night-owl, but Donnie (my cuz) hit me up, too. I'm starting a little bit on it now, but I can't make any promises. You're a true artist and I dig what you bring to the table, man. Keep the party moving and do what it do!
Hi! Thanks for listening to my song and for your feedback on it.. really really appreciated it!! Good luck with the rest of FAWM!
Can we make a track?
thank you for commenting on my song Looking Forward, it really means alot to me that my voice and the playbill on the subway scene touched you. I am a theater person at heart and miss NYC and the theater very much.
Thanks a lot for all your great comments! It's Umaru in the "12 Pepsis" pic. That is a character and show that I basically hate love. It's hard to define, she's just such a little shit but it's funny. I have a little keychain of Umaru in my car.
I suppose we have to fight now ya. I don't even drink pop very often but I do like Pepsi more. But I'm not picky.
That is a very classic college student story! I wish we had Jimmy John's in Canada. I had them once and it was way better than like Subway.
Thanks so much for the really amazing comment on Don't Hide. John Staples and my friend Garry told me all about Izotope mix plug ins, and well...now I get to go a bit nuts stereo spread. Very fun. 😀
So glad you liked my track "No Worries". Thank's for the feedback man:)
Glad you liked my "Light in the Darkness". I try to include chords as I agree with you, it's great to se the skeleton behind the flesh.
Hey, my FAWM friend, no pressure and no worries. I figured your hopping keys, samples and beats would make me sound good. But yes, we’re not here to get stressed out. Thank you for your great message. Rock on.
Hey no, it's okay that you dont' want to, & I don't want to post in the forums about it , just saying I believe you have the ability to.. I'm not really seeking that per say atm.. just thought of it. anyway tc on your endeavors.
I just think, you know what sounds finished. And sounds good together. hmm I still think you could do it hehe.
PS I want to kick the crap of this song and it’s gotta compel people to dance.
How do you feel about disco?
Kahlo2013 and I are collaborating on a song, and she came up with these beautiful disco lyrics. Would be a fun triple collab, and I’d love to make music with you. What do you think?
Hello! Thank you for listening to Mesmerized! My friends actually did the mixing and mastering. Aw! I’m so glad you like my vocals. I’m kind of self conscious about my voice. I’m excited to hear your songs! Listening now.😊😊
Hello, thank you for your super nice comment! I'm halfway through listening to your songs, and I enjoy them a lot. Hope to hear much more from you!
Hello, new friend! Thank you so much for listening to “Mesmerized”! I’m so glad you’re enjoying it! My friend actually helped me mix it, and he’s so good! ❤️ I am so excited to listen to your music!
Hey! Thank you for the love on the No way No way! I’m glad your ears enjoyed it 😁 I gotta say I did did all on it tho, that was alllll Peter! He’s a clever one right?
Thanks so much for your nice comment on my first track 😁
It was some high praises ! You also gave me motivation to boot up Extreme G2 on my N64 ^^
Thank yoy for your kind comment on Proof of Concept. Really appreciate it:) Have a nice FAWM further!
hey thanks for leaving such a kind and detailed comment on my song earlier!! I appreciate hearing your thoughts so much. And that's right about the vocal synth! Very cool
Thinking about it, I did reverse it as well. One internet point to you!
Its alright, sometimes brains need to be broken! I didn't fx the piano, I took a little clip of it, fx'd that and stretched it across the whole song, so kinda comes in and out.
Thanks so much for listening to and critiquing my song! I appreciate the good feedback!
Hello! Happy FAWM2021!
- Thank you.
Yes, what's happened is I got two great pals this year (last year actually, too), that like my music 😀 hahhh, go figure. Anyway, One is a Cover/collaboration, and they are getting, - Revisioned 😀 hahhh.
I had another friend from S. India drop a phone recording on me of her playing her "Veena" and so I jammed to that in the moment, and so that too, a collaboration festival for me and - revisioned. They are all standalone, so don't want to just revised the old post, to me their "new" and if they upload and tag me, - that's how they show up, - as Uno! 😀
Thx a lot for comments on "Fallen Angel"
I'd like to say thanks for your kind comment on my first song. I'm quite happy that you pointed out the drum programming, because I spent a few hours studying synth drum patterns in 80s and early 90s songs before I composed "disk mounting tutorial". I'm glad it paid off 😀
Thanks for your comments on Living Stereo. I really appreciated the details on different parts. Especially your thoughts on the drum programming which is an area I sometimes struggle with. Funny that you used the same sample before, but it is a popular one on archive.org. 😉
Regarding RCT: at the end of the day, it's the same game it always was, the same isometric view, game engine, roller coaster behavior, etc. From the standpoint of visual spectacle, RCT3 probably wins, but from the ability to truly create a detailed and in-depth world, and have it play in a balanced way, I prefer RCT and RCT2.
Hey! Yes we’re back! Maybe a little less active this time, or more who knows when the muse will visit? 😀 Looking forward to your tunes.
Thanks for the mentions on the gamer thread! (And, you've made me realize that the second half of it got swallowed. FAWM seems to think it has a 2000 character limit when it in fact has a 1000 character limit?)
The catch with OpenRCT2 is that it is not itself a functioning version of the game - it finds your installed copies of the base game. If it's been a while, you may need to re-purchase those... but I think you can get both RCT and RCT2, with all expansions, for $15 total on Steam or GOG. Then, OpenRCT2 is free.
Road Redemption is Steam-exclusive, I believe. I reiterate that it is a much grittier affair, but good fun. Happy gaming, and Happy FAWM!
Hey dude! Hope you cook up some tasty treats for us
ready to roll mate
Hello! Nice to see you 😀 can't wait to hear you again!
hey, I'm looking forward to listening to what you create this year! I'll be doing ambient projects again for year 2.
Good luck this year! Looking forward to hearing your new offerings.
Ahh! My dude! I was just getting around to you. I'm looking for more of your bit-crushing goodness. Make this FAWM rock, bro him!
I can't wait to FAWM it up and hear your stuff!
Good to see you again, friend! Can't wait to hear what you come up with this time!
What vocal synth do you use please?
Happy FAWMing. Hope you’re surviving the pandemicapocalypse.
February's calling. Will you answer?
Mic check (tap tap) this thing on?
