Candle's Buzz Expæriments…

Every February I participate in February Album Writing Month (http://www.fawm.org) - where you are challenged to write 14 songs in the 28 days of February. Below are some of my expæriments during FAWM - expæriments all built in Buzz. Enjoy!

As some of you may know, I participate in an online song writting challenge every February called February Album Writting Month or simply FAWM. I've been FAWMing now for 10 years & I just finished the 2020 edition with my largest song total to date (30 songs in the 29 days of this Leap February). All of these songs were created in Buzz & I try to describe my process in the liner notes of each song on the site. You can check out my entire FAWM output from this year at:

Candle's FAWM Page

But I thought I would highlight some of my favourites in this post.

Layered Oragami

This one was recorded live-to-tape (thanks to the MTW Recorder Machine). You can also see a picture of the latest version of my so-called "Live" Buzz Setup in the Lyrics portion of the page.

Punishment

This one uses WDE's Note Detector triggered by the vocals to drive an HG Fortune VSTi synth. It was lots of fun. Bonus points if you can solve the puns embedded in the lyrics :D

A Turtle Ate My Woman

This one has a funnyt story behind it, so please read the liner notes. But the reason I'm highlighting it here is that it was created with no VSTis, just native Buzz Machines.

Thanks for listening & don't hesitate to leave me some comments on these or the other songs here on this thread.
