[...]

My location is the Fuzzy Sound Labs secret underground bunker, somewhere the woods of Southern Ontario, Canada, near Peterborough. We have a staff of several hundred hard-working technicians and support personnel here in our vast subterranean complex.

Some of my songs will be written and played on the ukulele, either acoustic or electric.

And Melodica. Probably lots of weirdo Melodica.

There will be a fair amount of strange noise and experimental-type stuff.

A few strange spoken word stories, as well.

I am often open to collaborations, so hit me up if you're so inclined.

Here are two great quotations that express my attitude toward FAWM and 50/90;

"Musical structure? Frankly, I don't see what you need all those sandbags for, just to keep your river in place."- Captain Beefheart

"Earlier eras of pop music were characterized not by the search for perfection but by bizarre enthusiasms, small budgets, erratic technique, crummy equipment and wild abandon." - Brian Eno

No worries, amigo. FAWM 23 awaits and I'll be ready!

[avatar]

If you wouldn't mind, yes please.

[avatar]

I “guess” so - lol! They take me back to the 70s when a friend and I drove from Portland to Southern California in my new Le Black Cat Capris and I’d wired an 8 track with speakers that took up my whole back seat and blasted The Guess Who all the way down. Fun times!

[avatar]

Nothing to apologize for. I guess I was surprised, but that was a bit silly of me. Not everyone likes the same things. What was I thinking - lol! Anyway, I appreciate your appreciation.

[avatar]
@candle

Yeah, my Muse went a little nuts yesterday. Thanks!

See You In The Shadows…

[avatar]
@candle

Crazy thing, my Muse this morning demanded that I spend the day feasting. I'm pretty darn close now. Need two more songs recorded & then I need to post them all. A final rush to the finish I guess…

Back to work.

@candle

Congrats on hitting 50. Looks like I might not even get to 40 this time around. Oh well, I'm satisfied with what I have done. And you, my friend, had a superb summer! Congrats again 😄

See You In The Shadows…

[avatar]
@owl

thank you! Ah it makes me happy to see your song title list, especially that there's another xenomusicological report in the list. I'll be back later to listen :)

[avatar]

Thanks for the feedback! I guess those would technically be un-scrapped lol

[avatar]

That's quite a story. See, this is a good thing about living in the UK: I'm not sharing the environment with apex predators the size of a small car. Although a lorry driver did report seeing a wolf crossing the M5 motorway a few miles from here in the small hours of the morning a while ago...

[avatar]

Yes to both! 😊

[avatar]
@yam655

You're almost a winner, too!

Macaroni Tuna Casserole was a thing in my house while growing up. One of the advantages of marrying my ex was that they made delicious mac and cheese and never put weird stuff in it. Technically, I know their recipe, but I'd just rather someone else do the work.

@gm7

Thx for the kind words on the little bluegrass thang. It just a G C and D7..but it fun to play.

[avatar]

The ship wasn't a living entity... but it is now! And it ties in with one of my favourite author's book series "The Ship Who Sang". 😉
I'll have time to think about where I want this sequence to go by February, and maybe tighten up the first ten tracks a little. 😎

[avatar]

estrella has been putting out an album each year since she was three. she has 7 songs finished for her 6 year old album, which will come out feb 16th, the day after she turns seven, A Mermaid Like Me will be on that album. if you post your version, credit me as collaborator and and in the liner notes estrella with writing credit.

[avatar]

estrella has a new mermaid song. she wrote, played piano and sang it all by herself. mermaid ballerina i wrote with her, but now she only lets me push buttons. here is a link to the song if you want to cover it. you will have to decipher the lyrics, as they were never written down, https://billwhite.bandcamp.com/track/a-mermaid-is-like-me

[avatar]

The pleasure of coming across a like mind is mutual. 🙏 😊

[avatar]

Hey Fuzzy I wanna thank you for all your uplifting and empowering comments to my tracks. Especially for encouraging me to do experimental and crazy stuff and for your vocals in my little Dylan Thomas project!
It was a big joy to me to listening to your songs!

[avatar]

Sorry. 😔
I'll try to do a season finale when the ship leaves our solar system (just for you) and open season two in interstellar space during FAWM. 😉👽👽👽

[avatar]

" If you make your own music there are no wrong sounds."
It has wisdom. My teacher plays bass since over 40 years, he studied it in USA, plays in many bands, works in his own studio and teaches me e-bass. He knows that I make my own music and he wants to support me this way. I thought about that as I was recording my last song and thinking about if that sounds "right" - but there is no right or wrong in music.

[avatar]

sorry. my mistake has been rectified

[avatar]

YAY! 😂

[avatar]
@candle

You're right, #darkambient is probably a better genre monicker for that one that #slothcore Especially since the final bit is at the very un-slothy 138 BPM.

As for all the musicians, well, my Wife wasn't happy, especially with the orchestra, but we found room to allow them all to camp out in the yard 😉

Thank you for your great comments, as always 😄

See You In The Shadows…

[avatar]

Thank you once again. 😀
Yes. My first "genuinely" ambient track I suppose. Being a pedant, I'm reluctant to label anything with a beat or discernible melody as ambient. I had fun with that one. 😀

[avatar]

Somehow it does not surprise me in the least to hear that you were once pursued by a bear. I need to hear that story in detail at some point.

[avatar]

hoe do you send a link through bandcap. and how do i find it?

[avatar]

that is exactly what i need , fuzzy. some of your dark doomy sounds for my hamlet to wallow in. please send me something

[avatar]
@gm7

Thx...for the kind words on Take the Funk Train. Your dancing🕺...so mission accomplished for us!!. Enjoy

@lowhum

I think I managed to activate your user for the Rocktober forum. Try loging in with username: Fuzzy and whatever password you've got. If it doesn't work I can send you a new password

[avatar]

Ha - I guessed right. PaulStretch can have a very distinctive tonality at times! Are you using the old version, or the new one? https://sonosaurus.com/paulxstretch/

[avatar]

I totally did. Terry's great, and Henry's a pretty cool guy too.

[avatar]

Anything in this sound like the sort of sound you're after?

@atitlan

Thanks for mentioning Laurie Anderson in your comment on 'Bury a King' - makes me think I got some things right. The vocal treatment was a pitch-shifting delay plugin, plus some chorus.

[avatar]
@ttg105

I took the phrase "chaos guitar" from one of your comments. Love it! It will probably be a TG album title one day ...

[avatar]

Howdy, Fuzzy! Thanks for your Heartbreaker comment! Yeah, it was a guitar. I just used a capo. 😄

[avatar]
@candle

That experimental piano track is now up, if you're interested in the results. I might have stolen your "Ambientizer" idea, though I executed it in a completely different way.

https://fiftyninety.fawm.org/songs/9331

See You In The Shadows…

[avatar]

thanks for your comments on Remember Me. I used reverb/echo throughout but it became more accentuated when i raised my voice. when i directed the playI had a terrific original score from Ben Steele, and played the ghost against his electronic music with surround sound. the effects lowering my voice made it possible for me to only whisper the lines, as when i did anything above it, it would sound like i was retarded. i thought of ben when i heard andreas music, but could no longer whisper the speech or it would be lost in the sound. so it was fun changing its dynamics to fit the musi

[avatar]

You most certainly are!
You've turned me on to listening to the sounds between and beyond the sounds. And for that, I thank you sincerely. 😄

[avatar]

I love it! 😄

[avatar]

As always, you have free rein with any of my tunes, Fuzzy. So yes please! I can't wait to hear what your audio alchemy does to it! 😊

@ttg105

[avatar]

Thank you ☺️

@candle

You suggested I do an experimental piano piece with those piano samples I used in "My Tracker Never Got A Flat". Well, I tried, but it sort of went in a different direction. You might like the piece all the same:

[avatar]

Can you feel dead should be our next collab

[avatar]

Hi there Fuzzy. Thanks for your comments, really. It's cool to still have listens to do here. I did two listens just yet and I did not regret doing so.

[avatar]

thank you for your bomment on estrellas new mermaid song, she is doing all the writing, piano playing and singing now.

@mahtowin

Yes, I‘m fine with it. Take your time! I wasn‘t sure if the email arrived … it is still a little miracle to me to communicate cross the ocean in a few seconds. 😊

[avatar]
@mahtowin

My whale friends and I wanna say thanks a lot for your feedback to our song. Yes, they feel uncomfortable in these times ....
They are not FAWMlers yet so I couldn't post this as a collab. But they are ok with this. The main thing is to get heard!

Did you received my last email yesterday?

Hi Fuzzy! Are still open for a Dylan-Thomas-Collab? I made some music for the background which seems to me fits with the lyrics I have chosen.

[avatar]

Thanks for the great comments (and yeah, I know about McClung's promotion of eugenics and forced sterilization... I just mostly focus on the good stuff she did!)

yeah id like to hear it first thanks. :) EDIT: ive just realised i havent offered you a way to send it to me privately! how would i go about that ?

[avatar]
@chldomn5

Hiya fuzzy. Yes you can use my spoken word lyrics “mucky” :) let me know when you have done it ! I’m interested to see how you will do it compared to how I would. I wasn’t going to record them :)

[avatar]
@toms

Write a script and record it! Or, write it and send it to me if you think that my editing it would be at all valuable. We should both look for the relevant assets. Must be some public domain video footage on archive.org or in the USA Library of Congress or something. I can imitate the Ken Burns panning technique really easily. I would love to assemble a video, edit it until you like it! I just sent you my email address via faceblech! 😀

[avatar]

fuzz-man! i love that you're familiar with django...we are family!

Ha - the final location marker in the Ableton file for Wilful does indeed read, "Triumphant A minor ending"! Glad you liked it.

[avatar]
@ttg105

There are two bass tracks ... one normal, the other wah-wah. Thanks for noticing! :)

@yam655

You are correct. I had ~15 minutes free before my kids were dropped off, so I improvised some songs.

We’ve been too scared to watch it lol I know the story with Steve Ross was heartbreaking so we haven’t been brave enough to watch it.

[avatar]

I think it’s great for watching together. My wife and I are mad addicted to MST3K and bob ross lol

[avatar]

If you have Amazon, I a lot of them are free on there.

[avatar]

Duuuuude…if you’re not familiar with mystery science theater 3000….do yourself a favor and peep it. It’s a show that started in the late 80s and ran through the 90s. It’s a guy trapped in space by mad scientists that force him to watch bad movies in an attempt to drive him insane and he builds some robots to keep him company…the main point is that every episode they are just making fun of a terrible movie…I’d recommend “touch of satan” “space mutiny” or “mania hands of fate” or you can dip your toe in with their “shorts” which are usually dated educational films from the 50s. It’s honestly one of the best things mankind has ever done. I fall asleep to it every night lol and the writing is just amazing…it started on public access and is super DIY/punk rock. Sorry for the nerdgasm

Just posted my bit of the Bread Tag Mafia. Looking forward to what you have come up with.

See You In The Shadows…

[avatar]

Oh yes; I have most of Vallée's books. I think my opinion of what might be going on aligns quite closely with his. (I trust you know that he was the inspiration for Truffaut's character Claude Lacombe in Close Encounters of the Third Kind? "Valley" in French is 'la combe'; cute). Most interesting book I've read in that field recently is Diana Pasulka's "American Cosmic" - she goes down the rabbit hole in the company of someone who may or may not be a classic narcissist/fantasist who starts manipulating her investigation. No answers are found, of course; but the journey's fascinating.

[avatar]

Ooo, bass drone, please.
Now would you like keys, guitar, or very mediocre drums?

[avatar]
@ttg105

Pure coincidence re: Lou Reed! However, he may well pop up again this summer. :)

[avatar]

Hi, Thanks for listening. I think a little hit it better then none... I am also enjoying your music... Keep it up 😀

[avatar]

So two weeks now without word from Deez?
I'm going to worry myself into a breakdown if I don't find something to do. Still up for a collab? I don't care who starts it off. Or we could each start one and then throw them at each other like flaming hot potatoes.

[avatar]

I have enjoyed listening through your posts. The enticing energy of intertwined absurdist narratives punctuated with a fantastic Butthole Surfer aesthetic is refreshing! I trust you with my headphones, and that’s saying something. Very funny, poignant and interesting efforts. I’ve never had the opportunity to compare a single work or art or artist to both Butthole Surfers AND Monty Python. Somehow you’ve done it, sir, and I couldn’t be happier. Good luck and Godspeed!

[avatar]
@ttg105

I missed that. But I'm updated now. Thanks for that! And hey, no worries, Fuzzy. Going to do some listens here as well!

[avatar]
@mahtowin

Hey Fuzzy! That a wonderfull and cool idea!
I‘m in! You get a message from me when I‘m ready with the soundscape.Maybe it will take a few days …
Thanks a lot for this option :-) cause this a problem I got: I really love some English poets but I feel uncomfortable to read them.

[avatar]

Hope you like what I did with the prepared piano 2!

[avatar]

If you see any of lyrics you like, let me know. Love to do a Collab.

[avatar]

Thanks. It was fun!

[avatar]

Afflicted by nihilism shall be our next collab then?

[avatar]

lol i feel the same way. despite chronic depression/anxiety/stupid lizard brain afflicted by nihilism, i'm a super upbeat person...but my music is always so melancholy lol i guess that's what allows me to be upbeat, i just channel that BS out. much love, fuzzmaster general. let's do some tunes soon.

Thanks a lot for the book recommendation - I am DEFINITELY going to read it!

[avatar]

Thanks, Fuzzy, for sharing your memories of Rabbit Resistance! I guess that scar ain't great material for bragging, along the lines of "you should have seen what I did to him" or "was there an asymmetri in size between us". You'd look really awful on both counts! 😄

LOL and liner notes added (and edited)

It's definitely intense heat here in SC where we're hanging out for the next couple weeks!

@candle

Hey thanks (as always) for the listen & your kind words on Wildheart Decadence. As you know, I love just grooving to delay swells & building loops on top of wet, reverby tones. My Muse was pretty insistant on getting this track onto tape, & I'm glad I obliged. Still working on a few other tracks (including a collab with @looprication ). And I'm enjoying your explorations so far this summer. Stay musical, my friend!

Thanks, Fuzzy, for sharing your thoughts on Maddening Milk! Nice you noticed my non-looping this time. It's still very primitive, but I'm developing my keyboard skills here! 😀

[avatar]

Another fab job sir! This time I added liner notes and went back to Bicycle Day to add a note there as well. Maybe sometime in the next couple of months we do a you start then I finish (and if appropriate with Garageband effects out the wazoo) song?

@fuzzy I have a couple 1/8" (headphone jack) to USB adapters that I don't use, I can send you one if you want! They look like this: https://www.amazon.com/Sabrent-External-Adapter-Windows-AU-MMSA/dp/B00IRVQ0F8/

You could use it to record the Casio on your computer.

[avatar]

Your comment on Gramma, I'm Having a Crisis brought me to your page where I was introduced to slothcore and other creative weirdness. You may be having too much fun in that underground bunker!

Made my day, and by funny coincidence I listened just after a bicycle ride. Thanks!

Hello, Fuzzy! Thanks for Piglet comment and little girl anecdote! Getting our eyes opened we find we're living in a horror movie. 😄

A green melodica, of course! Thanks for the comment.

That is awesome, although to be fair, its totally yours as I was just one of the studio musicians in the cello bunker that was practicing unknowing that the tape was rolling. Will send something separately by coelacanth express.

It's getting better already thankfully.

Maybe, if you'd like, we could try another collab like last 50/90. I can send you an instrumental (when I'm able to play properly) for you to do something with and you could send me something that I can do something with. It was pretty fun last time!

[avatar]

Blushing and laughing here!

[avatar]

fuzzy, thanks for listening to "Sweet Betsy From Pike". I guess it too is a Hill (peak) billy song. Just like your old 78s.

And you are very kind with your comments. I'm going to have a t-shirt made with "Fipple Master" (or "Tootlestick Worrier") on it.
The bass with the Indian-sounding drone is a Soundpaint sample library built round the Bazantar - a real instrument with a ridiculous number of strings. And only one of them in existence!

I also sort of ended up kicking myself because the way the improv went left me in 15/16 time - and it felt REALLY odd trying to get a bass groove going in that quicker bit! 😂

Fuzzy, thanks pard, for reviewing "Utah Trail". Fun to put together.

I KNEW IT. I'm a slow dog but I get there eventually. 😀

My song about the guidestones is melancholy, since tgey were destroyed by idiots in such a supremely stupid and pointless way.

The lyrics kind of paraphrase the guidelines, so just listening maybe it wouldn’t come across.

But it makes me melancholy for sure. I want them rebuilt, though who knows if there’s enough public support in that backwards state that is my homeground…

I knew you'd appreciate the bread tag. I'm still going to try those cardboard ones I got my hands on (from Dempsters Hot Dog Buns, actually). I don't know how they'll hold up as plectum - they certainly won't be for a song with lots of heavy strumming 😆

Thank you for the comment. As always, I enjoy & am grateful for your reactions to my sonic explorations.

Thanks for the listen to "Spacelock.". Funnily enough, that song was pointing at the wrong file (clerical error—heads will roll at Downburst HQ!), and the song it *should* have been pointing at (fixed now) would be I think much more down your alley. Up your alley? Take a listen, I think the "headphones on" thing will make more sense.

Thanks, Fuzzy!

Fuzzy, thanks pard for reviewing "Cowboy Music’s Come And Gone".

Oh boy, remind me not to tell my wife that (she's a Librarian, after all). I sympathize…

It's one unique world, actually. It seems to be Fantasy (which it is, there's dragons, elves, dwarves, magic, &c…), but as the plot moves along, the more you realize that the world is just this really weird sci-fi world encased in a fanatsy millieu. You'd probably enjoy it. There's seven books, probably all available at your local library 😀

@candle

Yeah, it reminded me a a major plot point in Margeret Weis & Tracey Hickman's Epic Death Gate Cycle series (the ancient machine, that is). I've always been a huge Weis/Hickman fan, going back to their Dragonlance days (if you hadn't noticed, I'm a big nerd 😆 ). That song could be the soundtrack for parts of that series.

Oh yes; one Collab, please. At some point. I'll bring out the top-shelf weirdness.

@nadine

All cool! I still have mirin left, next time I try that too! Good idea. I mostly do non-green veggies exept for pak choi. Often also a tiny bit of chicken and noodles. Maybe my voice is not completely in vain, but I don't think it fits into the music I write. As I never considered myself a singer, I compose what I like and hope the right people come.

@nadine

Stir Fry is my favourite dish when I don't know what to eat! What do you throw in? Thanks for your kind words on the vocals. I don't like my singing voice and I feel like I completely lack of control. Maybe I should consider screaming as an option 😂

[avatar]

I don't think I've ever met your ex-wife but thanks for the comment! Was trying to go over-the-top with the lyric.

[avatar]

Dooo it... there is room for all in the Nicolas MindCage.
I agree on the chorus, but I decided anyone involved in the XXX version of Raising Arizona is an enthusiastically consenting adult.

archy the cockroach & vers libre poet is my muse. 😀 Thank you for the listen & kind comment, fuzzy!

I've heard stories about those rats. Frightening beasts. Those poor bastards (the techs, that is). Well, at the end of the day, you must maintain discipline. And what better way to deal with those rats then to have some hung-over junior techs hunt them down. Hey, there's an idea for a song! The Rat That Ate The Junior Tech 😆 😆

@chldomn5

hi thanks for listening ! re: song demo embedding, for some reason it didnt work when i tried it with my playlists. so i share the link in the desc instead. its hard to work out why things work some days with soundcloud and others they dont. so im being lazy ;)

[avatar]

Gimme a shout if anything grabs your ears and you want the stems mailing across. 😄

[avatar]

you and are a definitely kindred spirits, my friend! and i got that laugh from splice but they might also have that foley pack on freesound. i'm thinking of doing a prepared baby sitar piece with you and i'm working on another concept based around your dishwasher, like maybe recording some other chores around the house and getting a weird soundscape going?

@jeustan

The more I reflect on that the truer it seems, hehe.

Hey Fuzzy!

I can't seem to login under my old account at the moment. Created this "dummy" account just to get through the door (so to speak). Looking forward (as always) to your weirdo music, my friend!

See You In The Shadows…

p.s. So what famous music pioneer will you dream of being a boyfriend for this summer? ;-)

That was a fun surprise to tinker along with your haunted piano 😀 Looking forward to more strange concoctions!

@fon9

Hey Fuzzy! I am really wondering what your mind is going to form this year, both musically (you do great stuff in your bunkder) and lyrically (what is your mind telling you to tell this time :) Enjoy the time!

[avatar]

Thanks for letting me know. I should have it taken care of for you now. :) Have a great 5090! :)
