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

14/11/2004 - It's 5am And I Haven't Gone To Bed [Download]
Yesterday, for most of the day, I was tired and hungover. Then, as midnight approached, I was energetic and alert. "Hey, why don't I stay up all night? I'm awake, I've been asleep most of the day, I can do it. Why not?" Imagine what I could achieve in that time!

I achieved a lot last night. Really a lot!

Then, as dawn approached I was somewhat wide-eyed and hysterical as it reached that official 'morning' part of the day where 'morning' means you haven't slept and that there is no longer time to sleep properly even if you wanted to because you're meeting someone at midday and that's not very far away any more and you're wondering whether it was sensible to stay up but then you think "yeah - look what I've done while everyone else was sleeping" and besides you don't need sleep anyway, so you stay up, and you're proud you're still up and you feel good that you made it through the night and you're still awake and full of energy and oh my god let's write a song.
