Andrea Campanile

After joining FAWM in 21 and 22 I am back to my first 50/90! I am a newbie with making music. Already started to learn e-bass in February. Using Garageband as DAW.
Love to write poems and fairytales. Cannot sing but tries sometimes to do some spoken word tunes.
Very interested in collabs as I did a lot in Feb 22.

Influences? Such a lot! Beatles, Kate Bush, Marc Hollies, Sigur Ros, Miles Davis, Nirvana, Beastie Boys, Massive Attack, Red Hot Chilly Peppers, Bob Marley, Sting, The Police, U2, Nils Landgren, Manu Katche‘, Indigo Girls, Stevie Wonder, Runrig, Mardie Grass Brass Band, Georg Danzer, Elvis Presley, Paul Simon, Simon & Garfunkel, Zupfgeigenhansl, Ougenweide, Moby, Max Richter, ,….

Call me she/her/Andrea/Mahtowin

Constructive feedback to my bass playing is welcome - but only if you have in mind that I started learning e-bass in Feb 2022 :-)

As you can see above I am German. English is not my mother tongue and I often struggle with the translation when I comment on songs - I try to do it but it will not be very detailed.

"If you make your own music, there are no wrong sounds." (Steffen Knaus, my Bass teacher)

🙏👍🤗

[avatar]

Aww. Thank you too, Andrea. 😄
I really hope we collab again in February!

[avatar]

I thought not only was your pronunciation excellent on the spoken word, but your inflections were totally on point!

[avatar]

Glad you liked my "Sweet Bird of Liberty" - Yes, it seems that the swing between freedom and slavery is a constant throughout history. Sadly, we seem to be going back to an authoritarian future.

@fuzzy

Hey, I just saw your note on my board!
My pleasure! I enjoyed hearing your songs!
Thank you for your comments on my tracks!

@fuzzy

In the beginning when I first started here I used to worry if I was "too strange" and if anyone would like my music. Now I just create what I want and don't worry if anyone will like it. Luckily, people seem to enjoy my tunes for some weird reason!
So no problem; just make whatever you need to!
As you said, "If you make your own music there are no wrong sounds."

@gm7

This is a great place and yes I enjoyed your comments on my songs.
see you at FAWM2023

[avatar]

I love that idea! I'm a Reiki practitioner, so the whole Zen approach is central to pretty much everything I do, from washing up to playing the bass. Go for it! 😄

[avatar]

Your comment on debussy made my month! Thx for that!

[avatar]
@gm7

I think there some sites that can do that
https://cloudconvert.com/mp4-to-mp3
Not too sure about these sites but i have used them in the past..occasionally

[avatar]

Yes, go ahead with it.

[avatar]

Thanks so much for your comments on Not Your Kind of Guy. It's especially great that you listened, seeing as how country is not your favorite genre. Glad you liked Georgie and Gwyn's harmonies. Me, too!

[avatar]

Hi Andrea,

you asked why I don't write in Catalan. I do. I just haven't posted any to FAWM.

If you'd like to hear some songs that I have written in other languages here is my playlist on YouTube covering that area:

“Isn’t made on earth”!! Your comment on Sigur Ros made me smile:) I consider them my airplane band. Almost every time I fly, I crave their sounds for my surroundings! () was my 1st album and I, like you, got hooked!! 😀🎶

@ambroise

Ich bin begeistert ! Was hast du bereits und was brauchst du noch ?

Sam Raimi's a film director. You've probably watched at least one of his films!

thanks for the file and the collab. i think it best to post the result under a different name, hamlets ghost, to keep your original composition intact under its own title. what do you think?

[avatar]

please send file to BWhi51@yahoo.com

Soundpaint is a VSTi and they aren't supported as plug-ins by Garageband I'm afraid.
But Soundpaint also runs as a standalone, so it might be possible to record its output as a wav or mp3 and import that to Garageband. But I've never used Garageband, so I would hate to give you wrong advice.

[avatar]

You are very kind, Andrea. Thank you! 😄
The language is Gaelic and it's from a Soundpaint sample library called "Forgotten Voices: Barbary".

[avatar]

<3 thank you for saying that!!

[avatar]

I like Abyss, too. If you get chance, try to catch a copy of Big Blue (I think it's on Netflix). It's beautifully shot (Luc Besson) and about free diving! 😀

[avatar]
@fuzzy

Yeah, as someone who grew up with rotary-dial phones and air mail letters (perhaps you too), the internet blows my mind! 🤯

[avatar]
@fuzzy

Yup, sure did!
I'm gonna get on that either today or tomorrow; probably going to just send you the raw audio of me speaking for you to produce as you see fit, if that's ok.

[avatar]
@fuzzy

Yeah, definitely!
Send me some kind of link or something by email, or however you want. I'll see what I can do for you and then send it back for your approval!

[avatar]

Sorry about that! Hopefully this link will work.

Hey Andrea! I've been playing with an AI artist bot and threw in the full 'what do you choose, crone?" lyrics into it. This is what it came out with, pretty cool!

Hi Andrea, danke für den netten Kommentar zu NCC-5090! 😊

@fuzzy

No problem!
Take your time! :)

@fuzzy

Hey, here's an idea for a Collab, if you are in the mood; if you would ever want me to read that Dylan Thomas poem over one of your backing tracks I'd be up for that.
No pressure, just an option for you!!

[avatar]

Wow!
It's fabulous! Thank you so much for adding your incredible magick to my tune. I love your words, your delivery, and that e-bass just adds the cherry on the icing.

@nadine

Made my day! LOTR is just German in reverse 🤣

[avatar]

Done. 😄

[avatar]

I'll do both. It will be good for me to remember how to use WeTransfer. ;-)

[avatar]

I can upload it to my own server for download, if that would be acceptable? It's a while since I last used WeTransfer...

[avatar]

Thank you so much for the listen and the kind comments! And please feel free to add the spoken words. I can't wait to hear what you do with this! 😄

[avatar]

Thanks for visiting my songs "Before The Rain" and "Find Your Light", I appreciate your comments!

[avatar]

Thank you so much, Andrea!! You comments on my songs were super kind and thoughtful. It's nice to meet you :)

[avatar]

Hi Andrea! Thanks for commenting on my 'Doomed Commercial District' track. You're more than welcome to do what ever you want with the 'lyrics' of the track, I'd be extremely interested to hear what you come up with!

@slusk

Unfortunately the "real" life is limiting my time very much but I hope to do record some older idea(s).

@ohljazz

Thanks for your kind comments on my songs. Added a follow to keep up with your work!

@fuzzy

I really enjoyed Die im Dunkel!
I urge you to post more Experimental tunes! There is a solid group of Experimental/ weird musicians here who would really enjoy songs like that.

[avatar]
@candle

Thank you for your wonderful comments on my songs. Yes, now that I listen again the voice could indeed be the ninja in space 😆

I'm still a little shocked that #slothcore became a thing, but it's so awesome to hear how everyone has taken the idea & put it into music. I'm glad you could join the #slothcorerepublic 😄

See You In The Shadows…

[avatar]

LOL! I have deleted my two extra posts! I kept pressing the submit button but it didn't show as sent! I'm going to listen to your other songs when I get in x

Hi Mahtown, I have an Ibanez too, a red one, her name is Phoenix. I am only a beginner on double bass and use a lot of open strings, but I really want to improve with Youtube tutorials. If you ever want to play double bass in the future, playing electric bass really helps, it's the same but bigger although mine is a half size. I can tell you are passionate about the bass! My double bass is called Buddy and is male for some reason (maybe I like a male about the place lol). My friend who transported it to a gig for me calls him 'the beast' so now he is Buddy the Beast

[avatar]

Thank you for your lovely comments on Jack-in-the-box. I have to say your electric-bass playing is remarkably good, well, brilliant really, after only a few months! I really enjoyed listening to Cold in the Sunshine. You've inspired me to get my electric out. What bass do you have?

@gregwere

Thank you for your lovely comments on my songs, much appreciated.

Hey, thanks for your comment on my song Can We Be Friends, I'm really glad you liked it. I'm sorry to hear about your relationship. I do hope that you are in a happier place now. All the best with your 50/90, I hope you have a great one!
