This was not the 5090 I had planned. In mid July I left town for three weeks. I was away from my familiar environment and all of my toys. Attempts to write anything failed. I was not at all motivated. When I returned I had a temporary computer weirdness but really it took a month to recover my energy and flow. In September I finally got going again. I've worked all month on my Fibonacci piece. There was a lot of learning curve re: new plugins, production and mixing.
I have barely participated in 5090 with a few forum posts but no music or comments. I feel bad about that but so it went.
Looks like y'all had some fun. I'm glad for that.
In the last few years I have become fascinated with Electronic music. After decades of guitar, bass and drums it's a blessing to discover a world of new sounds and techniquess. In FAWM 2021 I wrote all my songs in odd meters, mostly with an electronic sound. Since FAWM I was involved in TrackBout, a weekly production competition. We made short, 90 sec, instrumental tracks based on a given set of chords. I gained a lot of production skills in a short time. Unfortunately they have discontinued it, at least for now. My nine short tracks can be found here:https://baldon.bandcamp.com/releases
My "plan" for 50/90 is to continue that voyage in some way. I've never tried to reach the 50 song goal and since it takes me days to complete an electronic production, I certainly won't this year but if I can get one a week or so, it will be good.
Skin is thick so I will always consider politely given suggestions or criticisms. Tell me what you really think.
As for pronouns, I am and always have been a he/him.
Hope y'all have a bunch of fun this time around.
Baldon (my nom d'electronique)
