My location is the Fuzzy Sound Labs secret underground bunker, somewhere the woods of Southern Ontario, Canada, near Peterborough. We have a staff of several hundred hard-working technicians and support personnel here in our vast subterranean complex.

There will be a fair amount of strange noise and experimental-type stuff.

A few surreal spoken word stories, as well.

I am often open to collaborations, so hit me up if you're so inclined and feel like getting weird.

Here are two great quotations that express my attitude toward FAWM and 50/90;

"Musical structure? Frankly, I don't see what you need all those sandbags for, just to keep your river in place."- Captain Beefheart

"Earlier eras of pop music were characterized not by the search for perfection but by bizarre enthusiasms, small budgets, erratic technique, crummy equipment and wild abandon." - Brian Eno

Not sure if you're going to see this 24 days after FAWM, but thanks for listening to my music!
Even with FAWM being over I would still be interested in a collaboration on "noise is for e v e r y o n e" if you're up for it. I listened to some of your music and I think it would combine quite well with this track. Let me know!
[avatar]
Thanks for your comment on Denoted. I am always glad that my weird experimental guitar songs find their way to ears like yours. 🎶🎸
[avatar]
So much fun. The fez is the perfect finishing touch.
[avatar]
The name rings a bell, although I don't think I've heard his music. Oh, he was a founder member of FM? Cool!
[avatar]
I’m hanging around for the next couple of weeks as I still have a bunch of music to listen to including more of your songs.
[avatar]
Thanks again for your insightful comments on 1971 Census and Call The Police. I really appreciate you taking the time to listen and comment on so many of my tracks.
[avatar]
thanks for your comments on my country song and estrellas piano tune. i have outlived my usefulness to her. all her ideas are her own. sometimes i try to edit her work, and she becomes furious. as for country music, some of the best singers and lyricists have come out of that tradition, but the music is almost always generic. i havent been able to overcome the generics of that style, but my lyrics are pretty good and my singing, although derivative, is functional. the music itself though is a bind. this song is typical in that i just wrote the lyrics , picked up the guitar, started strumming and sang them. no composition and the form was already there in the lyric. worst of all, no originality. i like to hand my country lyrics off to those who are better in that style, but this time my collaborator failed to deliver anything, so i dashed this off at the last minute, or i should say, the last ten minutes. i like it, though. so thanks for listening and liking it too.

Hi Fuzzy! Thank you so much for all your kind comments on my songs! I treasure this!
I mentioned you in my bio cause of your attitude to your music projects - there shines a lot of anarchism through it 😀 you show a kind of disrespect in a good and positiv way! I really like that! it opens doors of inspiration and childish behavior which is - to me - the base of making music. also your comments always empowering me to do my own weird music thing!
I would be very glad if we make a collab in 50/90! maybe something with drums (you?) and bass (me?) and some funny lyrics / vocals? maybe a mixture of English and German? maybe something about bears or/and water (I have in mind to make some songs about water this summer and this could lead into my first real album? this FAWM was the first one with results I wanna do something with ...) - only ideas - no pressure!
... and thanks for a new word - "belting out" sounds pretty good to me 😀
[avatar]
Thanks for your thoughtful comments on Wear Bright Gear. I think it’s my favourite track of FAWM this year and will be the title of my 2923 FAWM album. Now I’ll have to do is pick some tracks to leave out. Or maybe I call it a “double album” with all 21 tracks. 😎
[avatar]
Your comparison of FAWM and 50/90 makes sense to me. I expect I'll have a similar reaction to yours. FAWM was amazing and terrifying, and the terror forced the perfectionist in me to drop everything on the floor (for real -- I'll be filing for an extension on my taxes) and just write, which was great. There now exist seven songs that wouldn't otherwise. But one can only live in terror for so long. I'll be interested to see if I can write when I'm *not* in perpetual deadline mode.
[avatar]
I agree with you to an extent. Tribes people and hoodoo/voodoo practitioners have a better library of history then civilized people do. Thus they have a better understanding of the present meaning they can do things to manipulate curcumstances to do their bidding. Which in my humble opinion is what it's all about so long as one doesn't impinge on another's right to do the same. Being a civilized consumer of "things" is far from understanding the present. And that's what civilized people are: mind numbed consumers. Except for me of course; God loves me.
[avatar]
Collaborating during 50/90 would be great. This is my first FAWM, and I've yet to experience my first 50/90, so I don't know what to expect, and how it'll interact with my everyday life. Can't wait to find out.
[avatar]
Thanks so much for agreeing to try a collaboration. I'm sorry I dropped the ball on that. Next FAWM (when I vow I'll know more about my DAW)!
[avatar]
Please. You're being biased. If you were a math teacher you would say "You know what's substandard? People who don't appreciate 56*789<1/3 squared - 565^5÷666/×+++5466"
[avatar]
Nah Just history and history teachers are substandard.
CALM DOWN I'M KIDDING.
[avatar]
Fuzzy, thanks for the comment on my song "A peaceful world in Mario World"... the flute is my friend @chrisrauh playing the shakuhachi, he's an amazing player!
[avatar]
Rather than teachers I'd say the whole of education is substandard. It's just enough information to keep the civilized circuit perennially flowing.
[avatar]
thanks Fuzzy. Just getting caught up on listening!
[avatar]
Are you serious? You were a history teacher? LOL....you must hate me now. Since elementary I did bad in history because i never cared if IE Christopher Columbus found America. I always felt it was irrelevent to modern living even at a very young age. Now, if we were to discuss the history on witchcraft, occultism etc. you would have my undivided attention. I'd be like Frank Langella's character in the Ninth Gate.

Glad you liked Jobs For Early School Leavers. I had a lot of fun with the video. Not a real guitar nor a sample, it’s a synth patch that I modified in Korg Gadget in the iMonoPoly Gadget.
[avatar]
Thanks for the heads up @fuzzy, I don't think that comment showed up in my feed. Really great track
[avatar]
Thanks again for listening and your kind thoughts on Buckle Up For Safety! Glad you enjoyed it.

It’s funny that you mention crash test dummies. There was a commercial I downloaded but didn’t use had exactly that kind of imagery of crash the dummies flailing around after a crash and measuring the impact of not wearing a seatbelt, a lap belt only, or lap and shoulder.

The thing that stands out to me is just how far we’ve come from in automobile safety“if you don’t have seatbelts, get them installed. If you have seatbelts, use them”. 😃
[avatar]
Sadly, not a real cowbell. It's one from a Kontakt library of various sizes of cowbell. But I was tapping it out on my keyboard...

@candle
I'm glad we cleared that up, @caterwauler, @sirius, @iwilleatyou, & @fuzzy.

Tho… somehow I'm still completely confused ❓

[avatar]
Oooh ok! Thanks for clarifying, everything makes sense now.
[avatar]
@fuzzy
Well, @caterwauler, as far as I know, @iwilleatyou and @candle aren't the same person. I was told that they are actually conjoined twins.
[avatar]
And ignore Joanne. She's the female version of Patrick Bateman
[avatar]
Almost haha
[avatar]
Did you know @iwilleatyou and @candle are the same person?
[avatar]
Fah! That doesnt disturb me. I dated a girl who was into hoodoo shit and she had jars of peoples nails and hair. I stress..JARS - not just one. AND- she would use bones along with cat feces for whatever the hell spells she was doing. As you can imagine, the sex was pretty damn good haha.
[avatar]
Thanks for your continued support and kind words on my tracks.

Re: Russian Roulette Noise Extravaganza, it’s not exactly generative. My hardware synth has a random patch generator which allows you to randomize all parameters or just some. That includes waveforms for the three oscillators, envelope and LFO settings, modulations, onboard FX etc.
After I found a randomized patch I liked that was not too abrasive, strange, or silent, I then improvised a loop with each patch building layers. This track had nine synth loops and three sample tracks. I then manually triggered each loop and recorded the combined output. Hoe that better explains my process. 😎

I've got two of them sitting in my glass slide with my other "Guitar Cutlery" - as well as a box (or three) of platic cutlery left over from BBQs past… So yeah, I might be sitting on a gold mine 😆

Ok, that explains a lot! I suppose I have the same sensibility as a kindergarten kid, haha.
It sounds like your stories are waking dreams of sorts -- hence the surreal touch in them. I love that!

If you've not seen the show, it's worth tracking down. Utterly brilliant. Its theme music is by Neil Hannon of the Divine Comedy, who also writes the music for the "A Song for Europe" episode, which is... Something else.

Hey, Professor Fuzzy! You have blanket permission to do anything to any and all of my stuff, past, present and the present yet to come.
And congrats too on your win!
Personally I feel like I haven't done any heavy lifting at all this time round (imposter syndrome?) coz all I've done is shove a load of reverb into the mix and pressed record while wiggling my fingers on a tootlestick or two.
[avatar]
Hey, (a genuine) thank you for listening to '"Thank You So Much For That (Useless) Advice" and I'm SO glad that it resonated and made you laugh! Really appreciate the feedback 😊
[avatar]
Thank you for your kind feedback on Indolence.
Not sure about the "cello sounds", but if they are "floating", yeah, it's probably the violining guitars. (After collaborating for several years, @kenficara and I have become quite good at blending our sounds in such a way that we can no longer tell who played what, even though our instruments are supposed to be quite different).
[avatar]
Thanks for the feedback. My mixes are the only time in my life where people tell me that I need to be a bit louder. Seeing as I keep hearing it from different people, I should.
[avatar]
Thanks for your words on my latest song! It is so much fun to create this percussion / marimba background … i am discovering those sounds like a child!
[avatar]
Hahaha! Yup. That was me. It lives still exists as a full band studio recording on Spotify and such as "The Wings of an Eagle."
[avatar]
No worries! Thanks for doing the list.
[avatar]
@fuzzy
Now now, @sirius and @iwilleatyou, there's no need to fight; there are enough collabs for everyone.
Maybe we can get something going for 50/90.
Then again, as @sirius said, the world might not be ready for that.

Henry H. Crapo was a post Civil War governor of Michigan and before that came to Flint to make money from lumber. The sons and daughters of these "prominent" families all intermarried, and they tend to include the maternal side as a middle name. Crapo had a daughter named Rebecca Folger Crapo Durant, who was Billy Durant's mom. "Crapo" is an Anglicization of a French name I think.

Hopefully I'll have something for you soon.

You wrote on another thread "I get it; my process is kinda weird.
I can literally work with anything." That tugs on my attention.
If you have time and energy, I'd be interesting in collaborating on . . . "anything."

As always, no pressure.
Out and about for a couple of hours, but I'll zip 'em up and toss 'em your direction later today. 😎

I've been waiting for a while now for "The Dream Piddler" to appear on your song list... 😆

Thanks for the email. I'm okay; I just needed time out to process stuff. It turned out to be far more intense than I'd expected. Then an old metalhead friend from SF came to stay for a few days and that turned out to be just what I needed. Back at it now, though. Lots of catch-up listening to do!

Thanks for checking out my two demos 2.17 and 2.15 and glad you dig them. I usually just write like crazy in February, then take a step back and listen to them in April with new ears... so, maybe I'll end up liking them too 😀

Remember a couple days ago I dropped a comment something like “love your stuff, don’t know what to do with it”, @nahlej381 wanted to test that theory out and dropped the fuzziest non-fuzzy that ever was. I straight up thought he pulled you into a collab.

Thank you for the comments and the win congratulations. But more importantly thank you for the tip on mixing the bass near the edges.

Likewise, your title game is strong! I used to hate naming songs, so I’d just call everything “Untitled 1, 2, 3…” Eventually I figured if I’m already giving that few f*%ks I might as well make it funny.

Haha yeah, it's so funny, I wrote a version of this country song last night and wasn't happy, I was like, it's too complicated, I'm losing the plot, and there's too many damn chords!

Fuzzy!!!! How's it goin', man?! Hey, who knows if I'll do anything for this FAWM?! For whatever reason, I've been kinda unenthusiastic/unmotivated about songwriting the past few years. Dunno why. Just haven't felt the "spark", ya know? However, there were some lyrics you sent me last year for a blues-type song that I had some ideas for. I had a Leadbelly-like 12-string guitar thing going for it, if I recall. I might get to that this month ... eventually? Haha! Anyway, great to hear from you, and if I get some more free time, I'll check out some of your (most likely out of this world bizarre!) tracks. Cheers, mate! :-)
[avatar]
Thanks for the comments. I would love to collaborate with you at some juncture if such things were appealing to you? It may have taken me some 12 years to get over my shyness to ask, and please say no, but *I* would no doubt very much enjoy that!

You are explicitly permitted to do whatever you want with any of my pieces, so long as you properly attribute me. I use CC-BY for my work, so you can make derivatives and make gobs of money and all I ask is for attribution. (Details of that in my bio.)

I had no idea that headset had such problems when I started recording the pickle jar song. I started recording, noticed it sounded noisy and just rolled with it. (I'm tempted to say it was just because I'm lazy and didn't want to bother switching to a different mic/headset right away.) Still, I was pleased I managed to pull out something so thematically appropriate to the noise. It certainly wasn't the sort of song I was expecting initially.
[avatar]
Hi @fuzzy - I'm a bass player, so that deep sound always gets me. But I'm so blown away by the bass sounds in GarageBand that I just love using their stuff. You are the second to mention Krautrock/Kraftwerk, so I think I might have to rerecord putting on a bad German accent ;)

My workaround for tags is that once a tag exists, I can search for other instances of it. So if I add #slothcore here, I instantly have a way to see all instances of it by clicking on it. It's a bit clunky, and it won't help you to discover tags serendipitously, but it works.

Thanks for the tips and the welcome!

@ttg105
Thanks for stopping by - looking forward to this one!
[avatar]
Thank you for the welcome and kind words. I'm looking forward to your output as well!
[avatar]
Thank you, I put both of you down in my archive of the notes now. Should have done that in the first place, but at that time FAWM seemed like a one-and-done thing, who could have guessed.
[avatar]
@fuzzy do you remember who wrote the lyrics / post? I felt bad that I could only remember your contribution.

Having that thing unfinished has been bothering me ever sense. I let the concept get too big and I took all the fun out of it unfortunately. It doesn't help that my "second act" played out like a Hollywood blockbuster, devoid of anything deeper than chase sequences and explosions.

Ola Fuzzy, I wish you to have much distorted fun!

Thanks for the welcome. Glad to be here among fellow creatives. Hopefully some of the energy will rub off on me.
[avatar]
This sounds awesome. Looking forward to your music.

Happy FAWMing!

saw your comment about clickbait and name-checking eddie vedder in one of your song titles. i had a friend who wrote a song called pearl jam stole my hair..and it was he most popular song on the album.
[avatar]
Hi Fuzzy, good to know you're around doing that thing you are going to do, which I know is utterly creative! Enjoy!
[avatar]
Thanks Fuzzy! Less than a week to February...

@gubna
I look forward to being inspired by something you've done as I have been for the past few years. we definitely need to collab!

Hey, welcome back to FAWM! The Brian Eno quote in your bio resonates with me. Although I have gotten better equipment over the years, that isn't what has made my music better. It's the time I've put into this craft. Anyway, I'm looking forward to everything you do, including the experimental noise stuff!

@sph
Hi there, hope the secret underground bunker releases its plethora of sounds to the FAWM world again.
[avatar]
Let's do this, indeed. *revs bass*

@candle
<KNOCKS ON BUNKER DOOR> Is anyone there? I thought I heard Brian Eno playing the spoons… might have been my imagination. Still, happy FAWMing my friend! Hope we can collab on something this February.

See You In The Shadows…
[avatar]
Hey Mr. F, yes definitely I will send some noise your way and am looking forward to your sound assemblies!
[avatar]
indeed, Deez and I were preparing an album of mine that he'd be a major contributor to. We hoped to share the finished work in February. Some tracks were earmarked, some demo ideas where roughed out. We'd decided we'd drive each other insane if it was a true collab, because we knew each other's way of working too well. :) I hope to realize our intended project over time > either here during Feb or at the latest by the end of 5090. But it's hard to listen to and work on those tracks, so I'll do what I can when I can towards it as time passes. Let me know if there's something you think I can help a little with in any other project created in his memory.

Hi Fuzzy. :)

@mosley
FUZZY!!! Always so stoked to head your FAWM music! This year is gonna be awesome I can feel it
[avatar]
I am amazed that your massive technical department has managed to set its own standard for mind blowing sounds for this long without tampering with a single bass guitar.
[avatar]
The fuzz master general!!!! Shall we cross sonic streams this merry month of mayhem?! I’ll bring myrrh and toast!
[avatar]
@gm7
Great to see you here..it will be fun!
[avatar]
looking forward to another month of the strange and wonderful world of fuzzy music.
[avatar]
Look forward to your new stuff!
[avatar]
Dr Fuzz, welcome back! X
[avatar]
So good to see you here again! I'm very much looking forward to your musical madness!! :)
[avatar]
I'm really pleased you managed to use Crazy Ivan, it's a bit uncontrollable as I'm sure you know. I had a load of similar plugins to send you and was really disappointed they wouldn't work on your setup. The noises you would have made!
[avatar]
Damn this pink tinge, it doesn't do anything for you either, I'm similarly afflicted. I'm interested to hear you have a bass guitar and even more so to hear you're getting feedback from it. Feedback... ah that word fills me with excitement.
[avatar]
Welcome back Fuzzy :) I’m loving these quotes btw

@yam655
I won't have the time to work specifically on collabs for FAWM, but by 50/90 I should have a much nicer space to record. That said, I'd love to have you do something with one of my songs this year! 😀 I hope you have a fantastic FAWM!
[avatar]
I'm hearing the murmurs from the bunker have got the suits holding onto their ties. It's going to be a wild '23!
[avatar]
It's true! I have tiny, beady little eyes and I can barely see the website. I hate the pastel colorizing so imma change my pic to a mad-faced opossum right now!
[avatar]
Hey Fuzzy, hope to hear more weirdness from you (and maybe if I'm crazy enough you'll get a message requesting some narration for a possible sequel to a certain super collab...)
[avatar]
Fuzzy!! Have a blast old pal!
[avatar]
Exclusive, just for you... 😉
