I dunno...I play 500 billion instruments, write books, occasionally produce mildly amusing ukulele songs about Star Wars, and have been posting an improv a day on YouTube for, like, 1,065 days. During FAWM, I do "improvels" (improvised 28-chapter musical novels). During 50/90, I do whatever I feel like. I have absolutely no idea what I'll feel like this year.

My pronouns are she/her.

There are two cats in this house. I own at least two very capable pieces of sampling software, which I should learn how to use properly.... ๐Ÿ˜€

Kari, Just wanted to add my thanks to you for your comments on Into The Well. I also loved Florian's idea to add the sax. That really "makes it" for me!

Hi Kari, thanks for your comment on โ€œInto the Wellโ€. ๐Ÿ˜Š As a long-term member of Sax Lovers Anonymous I cannot resist the urge to slip a saxophone into my songs every once in a while. I really enjoy coming back to your posts here, the range of rare instruments you show off is very inspiring!

๐Ÿ˜€

Hi Kari! I look forward to hearing more of your music, following your stories, and learning new things about various instruments! Have fun!
