Beto

[...]

I'm a musician using #cassette tapes and mostly portable instruments (#opz #op1 #zoia etc.) to write hopeful soundscapes — from #ambient to #postrock. My #onepersonband is called "The Fishermen & the Priestess".

My influences include #radiohead #amulets #hainbach #tycho #beatles #elisregina #sylvanesso and many more.



The username @elesimo means "11th" in a made up language. Preferred #pronouns are they/them. I'm a #queer #immigrant of #Latin origin.



Goals for this 50/90:

☐ 50 songs [24/50]
☐ 4 #4track collaborations [1/4]
☑ More #slothcore [1]
☑ Have fun [🙃]

I'll probably repeat the same strategy I did last year, using the OP-Z with different pieces of gear, but I'm aiming for more polish and less experimental. Let's see how it goes!

Songs (24):

Thank you for the fix - you rock!!

@gm7

Your accommodating quick Tech fixes are well appreciated. You are the man of the hour. Thx Beto

@nadine

You're welcome! I think this song wouldn't have been so awesome without your guitars!

[avatar]

I have a fondness for cow songs. So glad you enjoyed Bossy Nova. I have enjoyed FAWM community for two years, and had lots of encouragement from musicians world wide. Where else could this happen?

[avatar]

thanks for the follow! you make really cool stuff 😊

[avatar]

Hey, I hope its okay that, since I used your click drum loops, I named you as collaborator on Wobbling Space Robots!

[avatar]

OKAY. DEMO DONE.

[avatar]

thank you for your good wishes, my friend.

[avatar]

I would be tickled and honored to have you put together Portuguese lyrics for "Sailing to Porto Alegre." I probably wouldn't understand them, but I'd be tickled and honored nons the less.

@mikeb

Thanks for the listen and comment on 'A Life of Unfulfilled Dreams'!

@gm7

Beto I/We appreciate your work and commitment to this site and 5090 community...great job sir. that goes for Eric and Burr!!✔👍

[avatar]

Jade it is! Great!

[avatar]

Hmm. Maybe Jade or Vanish in to o the Night? Or anyone that appeals (and I will be writing more). I have someone going to do Embers.

[avatar]

Sure, I'd like that!

[avatar]
@fuzzy

That is EXACTLY what I need!
Thanx for the offer, but I think It might be easier for both of us if I try to track one down around here now that I know what I'm looking for. I will definitely keep you in mind if I can't get one, though!
You are super kind! Thank you! 😀

[avatar]

Thanks so much for your kind comment!

[avatar]

Thanks for your comments, but aaargh, I’m sorry! I specifically took note of the fact that “they/them” is your preferred pronoun, and wrote the lyrics with that in mind, but then screwed up and forgot for the last line. I am very sorry! Let me know if you want me to take them down and dub over that line!

[avatar]

Hey Beto, you get TWO beard songs for the price of ONE! 😀

@atam94

Hey thanks for the kind words on "A Moment In Time Fading In" - It's so good to be here for 50/90 in addition to FAWM this year. I hope you're having a good time!

[avatar]
@zecoop

Hey there! I haven't had any time yet, but this weekend has potential. I just noticed my avatar!! 😀

[avatar]

Thanks for the follow!

[avatar]

Do you have a preference between “Beto” and “Elesimo” for references to you in your beard song? And whichever you prefer, any pronunciation guidance would be great so I don’t mess it up!

[avatar]
@gm7

Thx for comment on Cliche it was fun write.,PS the 5090 site is so great...well done to you Burr and Eric

[avatar]
@standup

Thanks for listening to Your Guide. The guitar was going through a Chase Bliss Mood pedal, and some distortion in the solo. Mood is an unpredictable echo that granularities sound a bit. I guess that gave impression of a bowed instrument.

@nadine

Can you please send me a mail or drop your e-mailadress? I'd like to send you the drumtrack to start with the digital 4-track.

[avatar]

Saw you say "hi" on my profile and I'm super happy to see you're doing 50/90! Pretty stoked it looks like we'll be on the same piece for the #digital_4track challenge.

[avatar]
@nadine

Haha you're sharp-eyed! Yes my workload increased because I started to organise the 4 track AND I entered two collabs. It will decrease when I get something done.

@candle

It worked! Thanks Beto 😀

See You In The Shadows…

@candle42

I guess you'll need to e-mail me at the darbyspicer gmail account to let me know you've deleted the @candle42 account, since I won't be able to get back in here until I can reset the @candle account P/W.

See You In The Shadows…

@candle42

Hey Beto,

I got the Password Reset e-mail, but it looks like it has reset the P/W for this new @candle42 account & not my old @candle account. Is it possible to delete the @candle42 account so that the confusion is remedied? I will then try to reset the P/W for the @candle account.

I also tried to "Reset Password" for User "Candle" (as opposed to my e-mail address as this seems to be attached to the new @candle42 account) & did not receive an e-mail. I can only assume the reset e-mail was sent to my inaccessable e-mail address that was attached to the original account. The old e-mail, for reference is candleexperience at gmail dot com. Can you double-check that the darbyspicer gmail address is attached to the @candle account? And maybe delete the @candle42 account so there is just the one account (which is what I want in the end, anyway).

Thank you for your patience & help with this matter, Beto

See You In The Shadows…

@candle42

Hey Beto, thanks for the reply.

I did, but the account seems to be linked to an e-mail address I no longer have access to. Is there a way it could be changed to the one I posted in the forum (darbyspicer at gmail dot com)? If so, that should hopefully do the trick.

Looking forward to some new #slothcore this summer 😀

See You In The Shadows…

@nadine

Hey Beto, I appreciate all the time and effort you invest to keep the system running!
I wish I had more capacity to organize the party, but I still fear that my avalance from FAWM 2022 will hit me pretty hard, once people start / continue recording 😅

[avatar]

muito amoooooooooooooooor <3 obrigada por essa nova casa. (já que temos 90 dias, podíamos tentar uma collab, hein)

[avatar]

[avatar]
