Ahhh so we're sharing 50/90 and FAWM... I think I get it ;)

Once again, hoping to get some ideas out there, mostly modular and semi-modular stuff but not limiting myself to anything. And once again, sadly, we begin this project with a tragedy. Some dear friends of mine lost their adult son to an overdose yesterday. Nothing can prepare you for something like that I'm sure. Anyway, finally getting back to whatever normal is these days, looking forward to hearing what others are doing on their summer vacation ;).

Thanks to all you wonderful freaks who make this community what it is. Super stoked to be back.

I've been writing/producing #electronic music under the moniker of looprication since 2000. Depending on my mood, #leftfield #downtempo #house #progressive_house #drum_n_bass #heavy so be prepared for anything as usual (but mostly dark electronic stuff).

I am so grateful you allowed me to play with your words & the ongoing inspiration we seem to keep passing back & forth to each other. This whole process that started two years ago has been a powerful experiænce that I am so glad we have been able to share, & that we have been able to share with the FAWM community. Thank you for being you & allowing me to be me.

Awesome! Thank you so much. I'm honoured as well that we can keep inspiring each other. I'm hoping to play around with it this weekend.

Hey Loop, I wonder if you'd be alright if I turn that little keepalive story i sent you into a spoken word piece? I'd be happy to put you down as a collaborator on it (since you inspired the majority of it). If you even want to send me some pads or beats to use, I could incorporate them as well. Let me know your thoughts.

Well, if you ever have something for me, send it my way. I'll do the same.

Sorry to hear about your dear friend's son. It's $#!tty that you seem to be losing people around you each time FAWM or 50/90 seems to be starting. My family is Irish/Scottish (on my mom's side) & we've always believed in the rule of three (it's a Celtic thing). Bad news comes in threes. Hopefully, the next bad news you get isn't as tragic.

I sort of realized a few years ago that I'm no longer going to weddings & baby celebrations, but to funerals. Sort of reminds me of my own mortality. Carpe diem, I guess. So, seize the day, Loop. Take this tragedy & pull something good out of it. Write some songs. Honour those we have lost.

If you need/want to talk, I've been told I'm a good listener.

Stay strong my friend,

See You In The Shadows…

Hoping you might be bleep-booping with us this summer 😀
