Re: FAWM (February Album Writing Month)

Yeah! There's also FAWM's east-coast cousin, The RPM Challenge . RPM is a little gentler (10 songs or 35 mins). Ah yea, I've heard of that one too! Both great challenges, of course! (tho FAWM is great if y'wanna challenge yourself a bit more :P ) These writing challenges are great for curing excuse...

FAWM (February Album Writing Month)

Hey all! There's this little thing on the internet called February Album Writing Month where the goal is to write 14 songs within 28 days. I just wanted to share this here because I know that a handful of y'all may be interested in this. This'll be my third year & I hope y'all join me. ;)

Jazz Chart written in Musescore

About a week ago, I taught myself how to use the Musescore notation editor, & I started writing a few jazz charts.

Earlier today, I finished one of these charts, & I put it online for anyone to listen or download the score.

I'd love to hear any feedback y'all have on it. :)

Thanks.

Re: I released my self-titled album today!

Certainly not the last time I shall listen to the album. ... Thanks for making this available. Wow, thanks! I'm glad this has earned multiple listens. :) The sarcasm seems to help freedom, in fact, because with an ironic undertone, you can allow yourself liberties that a 'serious artist' will have ...

Just an observation but it sounds like some of the songs could be sung an octave up to give the vocals a bit more expression and put them in a different sonic space in the mix, perhaps singing in a lower register was a stylistic choice on your part. In the future you might consider playing around w...

Hello from Wisconsin, USA.

It appears to be commonplace here to introduce your location in the subject line, so I suppose I'll do so too. :P My name is Mark! Silver (the exclaimation point is silent). I've been making music digitally as far back as 2012, but I first got into Linux in January 2016 with a little run at Ubuntu. ...
