Re: Do You Have A Plan (on how you're gonna get your reviews done?)

I have noticed that a lot of the music I compose has the "Oriental"-sounding characteristic that you mentioned. I don't know why this happens, and it's not something I do intentionally. If anyone can identify the cause, I'd certainly be interested. A few things I noticed about your music that, to m...

Re: Do You Have A Plan (on how you're gonna get your reviews done?)

Lichen Throat - The music is complex and very oriental, for lack of a better term, sounding. The vocals need much work in both delivery and perhaps whittling off some of the lyrics bulk. Maybe fewer lines/syllables and focus on simple melody. I have noticed that a lot of the music I compose has the...

Re: Hugs

Hugs—Lichen Throat One time at the grocery store, Cereal display out on the floor, Right next to the Hawaiian Punch, A guy was dressed as Captain Crunch. Approached my wife, his arms spread wide, Gave her a hug; he held her tight. His suit was dirty and smelled real bad; Even tried to go in for a gr...

I'll reiterate that this is one of twelve songs I wrote and recorded in 36 hours.
That's a really remarkable achievement, by the way.

And the rest of your explanation made sense too.

Re: Do You Have A Plan (on how you're gonna get your reviews done?)

Andy Balham—The vocal lines that have abrupt pauses (as in “…when storms lash the land…”) come off well. At first, I wasn’t sure what to make of the New Age-y instrumental bridge in the context of the rest of the song, but it’s kind of grown on me after multiple listens. The ending seems a little to...

Re: I'm Moving to Canada (Do You Have A Plan? prefight)

Submitted, got confirmation. This week's goals: 1. Don't be afraid of the microphone: Some improvement. I'm not too worried about people hearing my voice, but I'm still getting nervous because I'm worried about keeping proper time with the music. 2. Less muddled-sounding mix: Better, I believe. On t...

Re: Do You Have A Plan?

Do You Have a Plan--Lichen Throat I was nine years old when I first saw your books. You didn't write the words, but I loved to look at the pictures that you drew in black and white, from the basilisk to the wyvern in flight, and the cover with the guys who were trying to pry the gems from the statue...

Re: Don't forget the torches (Pitchfork Nation Reviews)

Here’s my first attempt at reviews. An unexpected bonus to my SongFight participation was how much fun it was to listen to everyone’s music. I’m very impressed with the level of skill, talent, and musical knowledge here. Andy Balham —Nice guitar tone. This sounds like it could be the best song in th...

In part. It's also a reference to the unpracticed state of my vocals. Strangely, I've never liked werewolves much. I have always liked lichens, however.

Hi, I'm new and incompetent

Hi. I submitted my first entry this week (as Lichen Throat). I'm a middle-aged guy with no musical training, who has nonetheless recently (and somewhat inexplicably) developed an interest in composing music. I'd been doing exclusively instrumentals until this week, which is likely quite evident to a...

Re: Ain't talkin' 'bout no farmers (Pitchfork Nation prefight)

My first entry has been sent! No one outside my household has ever heard my singing voice before, I'm even more frightfully off-key than I would have imagined, and I have no idea how to record vocals. Other than that it should sound okay. Maybe.
