Its always mind-blowing to me how February comes upon us and we all pop up like little mushrooms getting ready to cook up a great dish. I do in great part mark the passage of time with this group especially because it encompasses the whole of who I am as an artist. It is a focused concentration and gift to myself to forgo life's everyday and move into a blessed bubble for 28 days. Something I doubt many of us get to do throughout the year. So here I am again with the usual doubts of much happening.. and then the magic starts. As always I stay open to the muses come what may.
On a technical level I have updated my recording gear... interfaces, monitors, a really good mic, new headphones and some soundproofing in the hopes of making more usable tracks. Have an amazing time everyone and may the force be with you!

I think this is my sixth FAWM!. So glad to be back. I'm going to be in the middle of moving for the whole month of February so a lot of my time will be spent between my old and new place AND my car. Somehow I'll try to make this work and have the road and the inconsistency of the month Feed the Muse. As usual I have no idea what I will come with and I'm very doubtful I'll even have anything and I say that every year.
Looking forward to hearing what you all come up with this year. Especially looking forward to collaborations and song morphing and of course the ever famous song skirmishes.
I love my FAWMily

    Hey there, thanks for your comment - yeah, I am slowly understanding how it works here.. thank you for encouraging me.. so far I have only recorded two things on my phone.. And I will have to find a way how to get this on soundcloud as I don`t have a good recording software at the moment... πŸ˜‰ Now will listen to your songs πŸ˜€

    Hi there! I was so moved and intrigued by your post in the forum that I needed to address you directly. I loved every part of your post about starting in FAWM. I can relate to nearly all of what you wrote about your experience. I started out nearly the same as you and this month (bubble) still continues to invigorate and intrigue me. I try to explain it to my wife, who nearly gets it, but it is probably the best personal part of my year. I appreciate what you wrote and extend my best to you.
