UPDATE 9/30/22: Shortly into July, my mom injured her leg at the same time as my dad was in and out of the hospital for surgery. I ended up losing about a month to all of the craziness, and then once things settled down, all I wanted to do with my spare time was shut my brain off and sit in front of the TV. Whenever I tried to get to writing, I'd hit a brick wall in short order, and felt little motivation to persist. All I wanted to get out of 50/90 was at least *one* song, and it turns out that I'm only going to be able to achieve that by posting a half-finished instrumental. So... maybe next year? Or I don't know, maybe summer isn't the right time of year for me to write music. Maybe there's a reason I've never tried 50/90 before. I'll give it another go in '23 and see how it goes. Apologies for neglecting all of you on my watchlist... I'll try to see what I can get through in the time that the site's still up.

BIO: Hi! My name's Chris, but I record as 'Kiffa' (a lifelong family nickname)-- you can call me either.

I started writing and recording music in my bedroom as a teenager in the late '80s. Back then, I never could have imagined that anyone outside of my close circle of friends would ever hear any of it. Although the internet has changed that, I still approach making music in much the same way: I do it for myself, and I'm not trying to make it into anything more than a hobby. My abilities as a musician and as a producer are limited, but I try to make the most that I can out of them. FAWMing since 2008, 50/90ing since... now.

My style leans towards #80s #synthpop. Lately I've been unable to connect my hardware to my computer in order to record, so I've been using online #sequencers to create my demos, and my phone to record vocals. This doesn't always give me quite the results I was hoping for, but it has sufficed so far.

If my wishy-washiness hasn't sent you running away yet, welcome, and enjoy the relatively lo-fi goodness.

He/him/his.

Great to see you here! 50/90 (despite the name) is actually a bit more relaxed than FAWM I've found. And congrats on the Open Mic performance! I'm hoping to get to one soon!
