Artist Bio

Influences:   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 2021.

What am I doing in 2021?

Frankly, I'm not that sure.

Something? Maybe 14 somethings?

Maybe something totally new?


I'll be testing the new process in January. We'll see what turns up.

2021/01/18: New plans

I may have talked myself out of a crazy music-related project in favor of a much saner attempt to create multiple songs in an hour from the same source material.

I'm also settling in to the notion of using instruments with my songs. Particularly instruments I can play with my hands off-and-on while improvising lyrics. So: not technically acapella, but sparse instrumentation.

I've decided that this year all my songs will be 90 BPM (with a metronome). I'll be aiming for my natural key, which initial tests indicate may be D Major.

2021/01/21: Further refinement

I still plan for sparse, but present instruments in some of my songs. I'm not sure what to call the genre. It feels akin to some children's music, but the subject matter will likely conflict.

However, I'm now also interested in some metal-ish noise music. It feels like I've been actively avoiding this sort of thing. Dark, discordant, even confrontational. So, expect some of that.

I'm aiming for at least 14 of each of these, just to get a feel for them.
