I get the feeling this is going to be a horribly disjointed album

Edit: Why did I put parentheses around "album?" Also, you can put up just lyrics on the FAWM site?
No, there used to be a way to post music. Look again. I wouldn't be worried about the album be disjointed : )

Re: February Album Writing Month (FAWM)

No, I know that you can put up music. I was surprised that you didn't have to, you could post the lyrics and nothing else. It makes sense now that I've thought about it a little more, but at the time I was confused.

Oh. I see what you mean. Yea. There are a lot of people that just write lyrics and people who just write lyrics and try to get other people to turn them into songs.

Re: February Album Writing Month (FAWM)

OK, so I didn't make my deadline last night. I have to wait until I get to Uni to upload b/c it slows down the internet too much and the GF can't get any work done at home :/

So, what's up FAWMers...hows it going? I've got one track down.

Re: February Album Writing Month (FAWM)

I haven't got anywhere yet, but after I finish this job application I'm going to do one tonight. Are we posting these in here or the LB then?

Cool man, glad to have you aboard! Just in the LB with the tag [FAWM] ...anything else about the track can go in the post

Re: February Album Writing Month (FAWM)

My first effort is up in the LB...hoping to see some tunes from the rest of you soon. Don't worry about mixdown and sound design as much as getting the MUSIC written : )

Re: February Album Writing Month (FAWM)

well fauck it,

Im jumping in on this too, I have a hard time making songs in general, so if this is just making music and not too much on the serious Side, I'm sure I can get a few out

I think I'll some more minimal stuff for this, and just chopped up beatz.

Re: February Album Writing Month (FAWM)

Well, my sorry effort is now also up in the LB. There's no mixing to speak of really, besides what I did while I was going along. Also, the beat is a little bit basic, but there you go. This kind of thing is really good for making me tie loose ends together and stop adding to the massive pile of half-finished tracks.

Yea. I agree with what you said...really makes you move on quickly. Will listen later.

Re: February Album Writing Month (FAWM)

I was going to post my first two in the listening booth, but unfortunately the formatting on the forum has been fucked up for me all day. I guess I'll have to wait until tomorrow. On the bright side, this thing has encouraged me to work a lot faster so far. I banged out to basic outlines today.

Re: February Album Writing Month (FAWM)

#1 lesson from FAWM this year: make decisions quickly and stick w/ an idea if it sounds good. Just banged out a track in a about 4 hours total between last night and this afternoon that I'm pretty proud of...I didn't think too hard about anything and just let things fall into place.

That's how I tend to work most of the time as it so happens. I thought everyone worked like this until I joined the forum here and read how most time a lot of the guys here put into a track.

I think it has a lot to do with the fact I have no formal training and sod all music theory worth talking about..plus I can't really play anything either..and just play by ear when I do a track.

Having said all that, I still find things go best when I don't try and force a tune..letting it, as you said, "fall into place" by itself. Sometimes it's kind of creepy even, as it feels like what I end up with didn't come from me, but from somewhere else if you know what I mean.

Still..this process works for me and that's what is important I guess.

Re: February Album Writing Month (FAWM)

^my problem is mainly trying to make things better until they end up sounding worse then changing it to try and fix it then my head explodes. Fawm has been the opposite of that so far.

Re: February Album Writing Month (FAWM)

Haha, yeah that is exactly my problem too. I often spend so long fiddling about with a track it probably bears no resemblance to how it did at the start, many long hours beforehand.

This is my biggest block...whether it's arrangement, sound design, mixing...I always ruin it by spending too much time tweaking. Just spin some damn knobs and go with it.

EDIT: And big up everyone that's been posting FAWM tracks in the LB! I love listening to these really raw ideas from people whose music I love. Seriously, listening to your tunes has inspired me to give it my all.
