Singer, dreamer, skygazer. Classically-trained mezzo-soprano with long choir experience, studied musicologist, amateur guitarist (so far, acoustic only), have tried to learn the piano for some years and forgotten most of it again. Occasionally abusing the keyboard and making noise on a uke.
2019 is my 8th 50/90!
I have no idea if I will get around to doing something this year. If I do... prepare for weird and raw things.
Originally I was like: "I have so many old demos that would deserve being re-worked, finished, polished to a more mature form" after this year's FAWM. And I still want to do that... but at the same time, I have lost a fair amount of skills and recording mojo ever since I moved in 2017. So this 50/90 will be my playground to get comfortable with my DAW and recording tech again. Also, I discovered Supercollider recently and now I have a new toy.
- My trusty Cort Earth acoustic guitar, called Erda.
- My good old concert guitar
- MIDI master keyboard and a Roland SC-33 piano expander.
- A Mahalo soprano ukulele.
I will most likely be singing in English and German. Occasionally, Latin, Quenya, Italian, French, Middle High German, Ancient Greek or even Old Norse might have a guest appearance.
Looking forward to listening to y'all. If you want a collaboration (me singing on something, a choir arrangement or the like), just ask. I might not have much time and might be slow at doing something intricate, but I'll gladly do collabs.
One thing re:me singing your lyrics - I shy away from heterosexual love lyrics (lyrics with unspecified genders are fine) and from monotheist religious content. I'll gladly sing many other things, especially nerdy, science-y things as well as queer and pagan stuff.
