Artist Bio

Influences:   Jeff Bridges. Other FAWM musicians. Crap art. Mad poets.

Pronouns: he/him.

In 2018, I did FAWM Squared, Fourteen 14-track improvised albums. When I completed my 14th, I celebrated with a 15th. Then to help the community hit a song-count milestone, I did two more albums on the last day.

While I have my eye on attempting a 50/90 Squared, I don't think that it will be in 2020.

Later this year (2020), I'll be getting an Orba (via Kickstarter), and if I lean heavily in to learning the device, this may be my last mostly acapella year.

I kind of want to try my hand at some chants, rounds, lullabies and other traditional acapella style songs this year. It should provide a nice transition if I start doing accompanied music next year.

Update 2020-01-25: I'm rethinking the traditional acapella stuff. It probably won't go down that way. Things are probably going to get a little weird and experimental instead.

    Hi, big thanks for the early comment on "When you know..."
    Been off for awhile and try to catch up commenting/reacting. Your words about the performance feeling new and exciting are just too nice: In fact it was new and exciting for me to do such a spoken/sung word tune. And @unpronounceable 's lyrics are really special

    Thanks for your great comment on “The Unexpected”! The door opening was intended as a metaphor, but I kinda like the alien spaceship idea. 😊

    Thanks for the encouragement 😀 I just uploaded my first demo! 😁

    Hey, thanks for the encouragement on my tarot songs project! It feels really good to finally be gaining traction on a project I’ve been sitting on for at least five years now. I’m also treating these largely like one card readings. The first handful I read up on and took notes out of some of my favorite guidebooks before writing, but the last few I’ve just looked at the card and started writing. I don’t have your gift for spontaneity, but once I get the lyrics figured out, the music usually comes. It’s helping to write early in the morning, before my brain’s filters have a chance to turn on. 😉 Happy FAWMing to you!

    Ha! Yes, analog instruments. Thanks for the comment on my song about autocorrect.

    Your stuff is always interesting and always have a look. However, I'd rather comment over all like this, -- it wouldn't look real, authentic otherwise. No one should ever think I'm doing a "comment" hit-count for the initial 100 that always comes up.

    So, keep doing what you been doing and do as only you can do, do, have done and will... due. 😀

    I love your idea for “Old Friends” I think I might go with that if I end up recording it.thank you.

    Re: writing software for FAWM: cool! What kind of software?

  • @linzwolf 2 weeks

    Of course! I saw someone else do it, which reminded me. Just keeping the chain going 😉

    Hello! I'm back! And thank you so much for your kind words about my album several days ago! Have a terrific FAWM, and I look forward as always to your output, a cappella, experimental, or whatever - I'm sure it'll be interesting!

    looking forward to all your delicious weirdness S2

    It's great to see you back, too! I hope you have a great FAWM. It's true there don't seem to be many Bloomingtonites here ... oh well, we need to make a strong showing 😉

    I wish you good fortune in the carnage to come.

  • @coolparadiso  3 weeks

    yes you are right on the year! I was away last year and did everything remotely so did less skirmishes. I reckon your songs should play on those new fangled Japanese style toilets! They talk to you and have music! Perhaps thats your niche!

    Glad to see you back!!! 😀
