My Fermi Paradox album from 2017 is complete! You can check it out at: https://ffm.to/cryounit-paradox

11 years. 2019 here we go!

No central theme this year, I have a couple of projects I'm working towards, but I'll keep those as a surprise for once FAWM starts. 😀

My music can best be described as dark electronic music, with elements of industrial, drum & bass, trip-hop, ambient, and trance mixed in. Heavily seasoned with a dose of cyberpunk, sci-fi, dystopianism. You can check it out at: https://cryounit.bandcamp.com/

Feel free to play any of my songs on a podcast, radio show etc. If you let me know I'll listen in/promote the show.

My email is cryounitmusic@gmail.com. 😀

Update 2/18:
I've come to the conclusion that this is not going to be a 14 year for me. That said, I'm not done. I've got a few other challenge songs I have to complete, and I might finish up one or two more before the end of the year. Who knows? Stay tuned...

    I'd probably call it "It's February, You're Gone".

  • @pearlmanhattan  Feb 20

    Okay, I called it Break It Down - but you could use that or Raise it up.. Here's the lyrics

    You take and you give
    You learn and you live
    You lose and you win
    And you do it all again
    Asleep or Awake
    You make your own mistakes
    You tell the truth or lie
    You live or you die

    Raise it up
    Raise it up
    Raise it up
    Or break it down

    You hate and you love
    Below or above
    Build another wall
    To avoid the fall
    Hide it all away
    For another day
    Keep it all the same
    So you don’t take the blame

    Raise it up
    Raise it up
    Raise it up
    Or Break it down

    So it’s up to you
    Whacha gonna do
    Stand and have a say
    Or wash it all away
    Your truth should be told
    Before you’re too old
    Don’t let it pass away
    Stand and have a say

    Raise it up
    Raise it up
    Raise it up
    Or Break it down

    Finally, someone with influencers I recognize! Thanks for commenting on my song! Speaking of influence, you seem to have pinpointed the genre and timeframe I listen to the most by hearing one of my songs 😝

    Thanks for the comment on "No Human Lifesigns" They are not samples, but lines i recorded myself saying and then distorted them to sound like radio transmission samples from some sci-fi movie.

  • @alphanerg Feb 2019

    Replying to your comment on "Last Human in Cybertown". My entire fawm album last year was strings+electronics. It is so much fun you should totally try it.

  • @pearlmanhattan  Feb 2019

    Hiya! I'll be receiving tape 7 today, sending it on to you on Friday, Feb 15. Hit me up at pearlmanattanmusic at gmail dot com with your snailmail address if you can before then? Thanks.

  • @mdavisto  Feb 2019

    Hey man. No secrets to my arps.

    Mostly using Transistor Bass with the step sequencer disabled, it's a plugin in FL Studio. Then for the top end I use T-Force Alpha Plus, which is a free plugin and very very useful for doing trancy arps.

    Otherwise, the other thing I'm doing a lot these days is doing basslines with like 4 or more sounds, and just flipping between the patches so that certain phrases are only for certain basses.

  • @audrey  Feb 2019

    Thanks for the kind comment on my song Birth. Much appreciated.

  • @sciren  Feb 2019

    Yassss! Video game concept albums!!! I have a couple tracks in mind as well this year. Can’t wait to see where it leads you this FAWM!

  • @alphanerg Feb 2019

    Good to see you back, look forward to seeing what you do this year.

  • @ptr Jan 2019
