Mark's so-called music 'blog'.

Tomorrow I will be 28. Actually, by the time you read this I will have been 28 for some time, or possibly even older. Nevertheless, at the time of writing I will be 28 tomorrow, and in my 28 years I have written several drawer-fulls of music. In the next 28 years I expect to write several drawer-fulls more, and I was thinking that rather than leaving it to gather dust I would use the internet as an outlet for my musical work. Hopefully, having this page will also encourage me to write more new material as well, but we shall see about that...

Some of the tunes will be very old. Some will be brand-spanking new never-been-heard-before. Some will be full finished mixes, others just drafts or ideas. Some will be solo work, some will be collaborative. Some might even be by other people. To help you put things in context I will also write a short paragraph about each piece as it is released.

My Other On-Line Music

07/11/2004 - Alice [Download]
Image for 'Alice'This is a Third Man track which we wrote in 2001. The Third Man is another collaboration with Bob, and the commercial side of our music-making activities. We write production music for adverts, tv and radio shows, web-based media and pretty much anything else people will pay for. We specialise in writing to brief, rather than creating library music, although we do have a library of ready-made tracks available. We're currently working on getting our website up and running, but it is a slow process (how many websites am I working on at the moment??). Anyway, so far this sounds a bit too much like an advert - on to the track! This was written for a TV advert for Telewest who were trying out a new interactive TV service called iSeeTV. The idea was that when shopping using your TV a phone number would be displayed which you could call to discuss your order or get more info about the products available. You would see the person you were speaking to on your TV (they couldn't see you) and they could demonstrate the products, answer any questions, take your order etc. I'm not sure that it caught on (this was 3 years ago and I haven't heard any more about it...) but it was an interesting idea. Our brief was for a 3-minute bed to go under an infomercial which should be cool & funky and not too intrusive. I don't know why we called it Alice, but here it is.
