2 weeks until FAWM.
I’ve spent the past 5 years getting a guitar sound that I like, a drum sound that works, and getting the right settings to get a decent overall recorded sound – one where you can feel the chunk, and all of the instruments are well balanced.
So, now I have a template. I pretty much load the template, plug in and start jamming.
I’ve decided that this year, I’m going with the theme of Zombies. Zombies are a great representation of the current political climate. I’ve also decided to get heavy. Actually, every year I’ve gotten heavier and heavier with my songwriting. I’ve been listening to Deafheaven, Gojira and lots of Motorhead.
I’ve also decided that at some point this February, I’m going to do a Periscope filming the creation of a song. From start to finish (well almost finished), in the span of 1 hour. So, be sure to tune in for that!
And just for old times sake- here’s the self titled album – my first concept album, and also 90% written during a FAWM:
