Artist Bio

Influences:   Prince, Portishead, Massive Attack, Joni Mitchell, Miles Davis, Laurie Anderson, Talking Heads, Tom Waits, Frank Zappa, Steve Reich, other people on here particularly more experimental stuff!

Based in U.K. But have lived all over and had contact with a lot of different styles of music and approaches. Generally quite experimental - and sort of mix genres and started adding free verse rather than songs.

Last year: over 30 tracks and several collabs. Discovered the joy of the skirmish. Amazing February.

This year it might take a while to get back in so bear with me. I set up a soundcloud just for fawm

    Yes! Let's do it! I already made it downloadable, let me know if its not. Also, I can absolutely redo the vocal track to a click track if that helps, or redo it once we have some sort of track with a beat. Let me know how I can help! I made my email public too, so if you want to chat off-site, we can do that too.

    The mystery and creative power of memory -

    PROUST:" No sooner had the warm liquid mixed with the crumbs touched my palate than a shudder ran through me and I stopped, intent upon the extraordinary thing that was happening to me. An exquisite pleasure had invaded my senses, something isolated, detached, with no suggestion of its origin. And at once the vicissitudes of life had become indifferent to me, its disasters innocuous, its brevity illusory—this new sensation having had on me the effect which love has of filling me with a precious essence; or rather this essence was not in me it was me. ... Whence did it come? What did it mean? How could I seize and apprehend it? ... And suddenly the memory revealed itself. The taste was that of the little piece of madeleine which on Sunday mornings at Combray (because on those mornings I did not go out before mass), when I went to say good morning to her in her bedroom, my aunt Léonie used to give me, dipping it first in her own cup of tea

    Hey! Checking in to see if you still want to collab on Barnyard Jig, or if you already started how the progress is going.

  • @howthenightcame Feb 16

    Thanks for the heads up about skirmishes and challenges. Glad you liked the clowns!!

  • @howthenightcame Feb 16

    Hello tunecat, you posted a message on the Mr Bungle thread about linking songs to challenges. Was that comment meant for me? If so, I don't understand it... If not, ignore me!!

  • @sbs2018 Feb 15

    Hey, thanks for the comments on my songs. Cool. Must check out Stromae. Thanks for the mention - love learning about artists I did not know of.

    Thanks for your feedback on my songs! Regarding your comment about "Who Let the Dogs Out," I see that I failed to capitalize Scout, so it wasn't evident that it's supposed to be a dog's name. I went for names that are fairly common for dogs in the US and hence feel generic to me. I wonder if that's a popular dog name in the US because we have such a militaristic culture? 😉

    Hope you are enjoying your FAWM! Greetings from Brighton:-)

    Thanks for the comment on Barnyard Jig. And yes, the spaces aren't metric, I'm hoping to collab with someone and get it all down pat with a good beat behind it. This was a super fast take. (c:

  • @blueone Feb 12

    Hey thanks for kind comments! I'd be more comfortable doing the music if that's alright? In a bit of a dry spot with lyrics at the minute...

  • @blueone Feb 11

    Heya - we've been matched up for a random collab! Anything in particular you have already that you want me to take a stab at, or did you want to come up with something fresh? Happy either way. Cheers!

    Thanks also for your kind words on "Troughs of Knowing Weeds". I think it's totally fair (and even kind of awesome) if our words remind listeners of other songs. And an AAA challenge might be really cool, especially for writers who deliberately never write that way.

  • @moonraccoon  Feb 8

    I'm so happy you dig what I did with "My Slippers". If you're comfortable with the idea, I wouldn't mind adding a real name to the lyricist credit in my notes, in case I record it "for real" one day. My email is on my profile page.

  • @mishykatz  Feb 6

    thanks for the nice comment on Reflections of Me!

  • @barbara  Feb 3

    Fond for me as well! Perhaps again?

  • @mishykatz  Feb 3

    Thank you 😀 The 'pause' was me scrolling down on my page...I'll have to incorporate it....haha Love it!

  • @klaus  Feb 1

    Hi Tuney! I hope we will see you again in this year's Fawm. Greetings from snow covered Helsinki City. Cheers! 😀
