Dabbler in the sonic arts. I've done FAWM 7 times but this is my first time on the 50/90 side.

FAWM 2022 was particularly successful for me, so I made a proper album of the songs. 4 of the 11 songs were collabs with fellow Fawmers, who wrote lyrics. You can listen to it here: https://haxkvast.bandcamp.com

Songs (17):

Thank you so much for your review of Irreloquent! I'm glad you enjoyed it and especially glad you found it to be cohesive. Careful sequencing and @w1n's expert mastering helped make it so despite the genre diversity. It's also good to know what the highlights were for you. Art by Chance is a crowd favourite - it attracted the equal highest number of comments of anything I've done since 2008.

I'm glad you picked up on the emotional journey in the album. Because my lyrics are all over the place in terms of theme and mood, these albums can end up as something of a curiosity cabinet. But these ones came together to tell a story, and it helped that I had two demos of the same lyric - one despairing and one optimistic, which served as perfect bookends.

Thanks for your comment on "I'm not angry". I'm glad you enjoyed the draft. I feel its gonna ve a great song when finished. I never heard of Gillian Welch. I should check! Thanks also for helping me to label it. Sometimes I just play and compose and got no idea what I'm doing 😆

Hey there! I'm organising the digital 4 track challenge. The chances that the chain you're in is stuck are pretty high. I think about a plan b, that could be (a) changing the order or (b) dissolving the chain and filling the gaps. When do you find time to record? Please let me know about your absense, so I can plan new chains.

Your comment on my "Down at the Riverbed" lyric touched my heart. Thank you! So glad that you found it musical, too.

Nice of you to drop in on Vibrant Green Heaven and thank you for the very kind words.

Hi, thanks for you comment on my song, Fall. I had never heard of Roky Erickson before -- or so I had thought!! I jumped onto YouTube to listen to some of his stuff and lo and behold! I've had his two-headed dog song on one of my Spotify lists for years. I do like his stuff.

Hey, nice to meet you :) yeah more than happy for you to take a crack at ‘he’, looking forward to seeing what you do with it. Listened to a few of your songs, they’re great, you have a fab voice!

[avatar]

Absolutely, go for it 😀

[avatar]

Thanks for the comment on the TOS Strange New Song!

[avatar]

I too am a massive fan of Scott Walker, what a voice, some real quirky stuff he did when he went his own way, I particularly love the 'J's' those being Joanna and Jackie both totally different but fabulous.

Many thanks for your comment :-)

Thanks for your comments on False Prophets. Someone on another site had made mention of Rage Against The Machine with regards to some of my socio-political themed writes. I'll have to check this groups material out more.
As far as revolution goes., it has already begun. We're in the early stages of it.

Thanks for your comment on Look Sharp! I agree, it is intriguing to ponder what he is running from... perhaps there is another song there to tell that story.

Thanks so much for your nice comment!!

@nadine

Thanks for your comment! I was just ranting, but there is some truth in these lyrics.

[avatar]

Thanks for asking - I am fine with it as long as @davidtaro is and it seems he is. I appreciate your checking with him!

[avatar]

Thank you Cheslain, for your very helpful feedback on I'm Not Sick, I appreciate it!

[avatar]

cheslain, What a wonderful comment you made on Into the Well. Thank you! I'm glad the piece moved you. It was a pleasure working with Florian. We both had the same vision.

[avatar]

Hey, thanks for your kind words on Into the Well! Jazzy film noir, that’s exactly the kind of mood Patty’s lyrics created in my mind when I read her lyrics. 😄
