My name is Volker, I'm living in Augsburg, Germany. I cannot stop making my "reklovmusik" for many, many years - even though nobody listens to it. (That's a well-known artist's fate, isn't it?!)
In February I had my first FAWM, and that was a GREAT experience for me! Being a part of such a big community full of friendly and creative people was very fun! As a result of that I created a full-time concept album including a spoken-word story. You can listen to it at my bandcamp page (But beware, it's all German!)
Unfortunately I'm out of work for a long, long time now - so I have enough time pretending to have a sort of musician's job. And - as it is in every profession - I want to improve myself. This time I'm experimenting with writing English lyrics (which I haven't done since 30 years!) So please be kind to my mistakes and feel free to correct me. I want to improve my English skills!
Besides I have some restrictions for my "50/90"-songs:
- In order to find a story line for my songs I pick five random cards for each song with terms on it. I'm taking those cards out of a game called "Eselsbrücke". It's similar to that "story cubes" thing.
- The structure of the song is chosen randomly by using http://muse.fawm.org/struxxure
- A random ending number from 0 to 9 determines the quantity of instruments/layers to be used. "0" means: no instrument = a capella.
- A random ending number from 0 to 9 determines the sort of instrument being played.
I'm doing this in order to get a quick result (I'm very irresolute). In most of the cases all songs are first take.
Hoping to have a good summertime with you all, folks!
