Hi there from Germany! ๐Ÿ‘‹

A cis him, born 1981, I work as a software developer and have been making music as a hobby all my life. I play the classical guitar, but make most music on the computer.

2024 will be my second FAWM, I started in 2022. FAWM helped me break my overthinking and now keeps me coming back for new ideas and collaborations.

If you'd like to do something together, or redo/cover something from me, just post me a message. Don't hesitate to turn me away if I offer you a demo and you don't like what you hear - no hard feelings, promise. ๐Ÿ™‚

Feel free to criticize anything about my songs. As a non-native speaker, I especially invite you to play grammar police. ๐Ÿ˜…

When I comment one of your songs, I have listened to it completely, at least once, more probably several times over. (Yes, even if it is long.) No need to return the comment or say thanks - I enjoy listening to your things and will keep on doing that without reciprocal notes. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Outside, you'll usually find me on https://www.musesongwriters.com and https://recording.de.

'Seesaw of life collaboration.' What a very nice surprise to hear this. I'm really pleased with the results. You did some very clever editing of the piano part. The vocals are great and the lyrics are very wise and poetic. A great collaboration (even though I didn't know I was contributing. ๐Ÿ˜Š' Thanks for doing this.
[avatar]
just checking in with all my collaborators to see how things are progressing!

Holy something! Wow that song of yours is amazing. Of course singer fixes small โ€™mistakesโ€™ on lyrics for the song. Please if you can you use my lyrics in something like that let it go. So yes ๐Ÿ˜

Hey Florian, many thanks for your positive feedback on our demo โ€˜If I Want To Dreamโ€™!

Iโ€™ll ask our singer Liam to let me know what the lyrics are (I couldnโ€™t decipher the words ๐Ÿ˜…).

SHUT THE DOOR feedback - what a great idea, an Irish pub tune!"Love that, you created a whole new dimension to the lyric.
[avatar]
Wow, Florian. Thank you for tuning in so beautifully. I actually had the image of the street when I was composing it. It's a story about losing someone who felt isolated. Love and sadness. nostalgia about the times which will never return...
[avatar]
Hey, Florian - I had fun coming up with a simple lyric for your "Wild Horses" snippet. I'll email it to you.
[avatar]
Thank you!

Appreciation needed or not. Thanks for your comments! Love your attitude here. Just continues to amaze me what a difference FAWM is, in contrast to how people interact in other places!

Thank you for the kind comments

Hi Florian, thank you for your beautiful comment on Mt sad zombie piece. Please let me know if you are happy to collaborate on it.

Hey Florian, thanks for checking out โ€™Centre of the skyโ€™ thereโ€™s some dissonant notes in there to keep it from getting too 80โ€™s pop
[avatar]
omG hi Florian! I keep on meaning to message you sooner since our chat on SoundCloud because I'd really like to make something with you, but then ended up overthinking and never sent anything - my bad. Thank you sm for your feedback on 'Ferris Wheel' โ˜บ๏ธ really good inputs. Let's collab? Hope you're having a great FAWM

Hallo Florian! GrรผรŸe aus Gรถttingen! Ich habe auch gerade einen "comments first" Song geschrieben und das war echt witzig und herausfordernd! Happy FAWM!
[avatar]
Thanks for your comments on YOLOcrian!
[avatar]
lol, that's a great challenge! I must have missed that one. I most definitely write lyrics in Norwegian. Want one then?
[avatar]
Sounds splendid!! I had (have?) the original VSO library, but haven't used it in years. I should see if I still have it...
[avatar]
Out of curiosity, what vocal AI are you using, if you don't mind me asking?

Also, are you able to send me the song? I like to keep a record (no pun intended) of all songs I've contributed to.
[avatar]
You're very kind, thank you. ๐Ÿ™
In reality, I've only completed 10. Two are placeholders, one is a collab I had very little input to, and one is a stitched together suite from four linked pieces I posted individually. ๐Ÿ˜‰
[avatar]
Just sent you some lyrics for the Collab! enjoy!
[avatar]
Thanks for the listen and vocal harmony suggestion! That's something I'm working on, so it'll be fun to try that for a more produced track at some point!
[avatar]
thanks for the comment on "Weathered" - I appreciate it!
[avatar]
Thanks for your comments on A Thousand Songs
[avatar]
Absolutely! Kudos on singing this with a straight face. ;) Epic stuff. Seems like you need an extra verse or two, though. Want me to write something?
[avatar]
Brilliant!
[avatar]
Thanks for listening and commenting on Birds
[avatar]
Thanks so much for the nice comments on "Old Typewriter." I would love to be able to incorporate your feedback at some point. Probably a steep learning curve for me learning how to add pads and arpeggios. Or are there easy Logic plugins for that kind of thing?
[avatar]
Thanks for your comments on Heart Full of Hearts - I had never heard that piece by For River before, it is beautiful and I am humbled to be compared to it!
[avatar]
Hey Florian! Thanks for reading and commenting on Hellbender Hearts. She definitely is a "strong one" for the song! I'm at work but am looking forward to listening to what you've posted!
