Gubna

My old drummer gave me the nick name Gubna. Bass player for the most part, having performed in bands from 1991-2002 on bass, a stint in a punk band on lead guitar 2006-2007, then formed an improv trio in 2011 with some friends which is still going - albeit on and off. I made weird electronic instrumental music under the moniker Spamystyle since 2013, and used it for FAWM albums as well. In 2021 I started posting under CNTNR.bandcamp.com and I'll probably continue to use that only from now on, shelving the spamystyle one.

I found out about FAWM in late Jan 2018 from some Tom Whitwell-related post, went and did it. Basically, I heard he recorded an album using a script and a small modular. That led me to something called "arbitrary restraints" or was it constraints?, which led me to FAWM. Because it happened in late Jan, I took it as a sign that I needed to do it. But, I'm still learning about songwriting, and a lot of what I've done has been experimental.

2021 albums:

(I created all of it without listening to it, and even posted it online before I ever heard it as part of a "no listening" challenge I made up.

https://cntnr.bandcamp.com/album/receiving - is all tape loops. Literal loops of cassette tape bits. I had fun with it after finding a bin of old cassettes in a closet

Here are the 2022 albums, although the last one has a lot of demo versions I may eventually re-record. Or I won't.

Hey, I've really enjoyed your output so far this summer.
Keep on being weird!

Thank you for the kind words on "Sunlight Bouncing On The Window". I'm really glad you enjoyed it. And yes, so many sounds can be made for ambient with guitar and effects. It's a lot of fun to dive into sound design.

Thank you for your Comment on "The Uncomfortable Chair"!
You seeing my song directly after getting rid of your own uncomfortable chair just proves that we all live in a simulation, right? 😀
