Second song, “Dubnium,” completed

Friday, February 3rd, 2006

I finished my second FAWM song, “Dubnium.” I took a pretty obvious approach on this one, making it dub-style. I’m not totally happy with how it turned out, but I just can’t spend any more time on it, so I’m declaring it done.

The instruments in this one are Reason for drums, Lazysnake for the Rhodes, Korg MS-20 for a pad sound, and Iblit for the bass, and a couple lame guitar chords. Lazysnake and Iblit are free here:

Listen to Dubnium.

FAWM Concept Album Decision + First Song

Thursday, February 2nd, 2006

I’ve been wanting to do a concept album for FAWM, but have had a hard time coming up with a concept I liked. My friend Michael Hoes came up with a pretty cool idea: an album where each song is about, or inspired by, an element on the periodic table. So, that’s what I’m going to attempt to do. The album will probably be called “Elements” (aptly appropriate, no?)

Tonight, after having Cubase crash at least 3 times, and discarding two ideas, I finally wrote my first song for FAWM, entitled “Bismuth.” Listen to Bismuth.
