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.

Please feel free to leave comments!

19/12/2004 - PS-7: A Christmas Medley [Download]
Image for 'PS-7: A Christmas Medley'Oh my God - well it is nearly Christmas I suppose, and this is the only Christmas song I've ever written. It is also possibly the worst thing I have ever recorded. Coincidence? I think not! Actually, if I think about it, there probably is worse stuff out there, but most of it is somehow defensible. Either it's a good idea done badly or a bad idea done well. This is a medley. It is a bad idea done badly. My only excuse is that I was very young at the time, and perhaps a little too ambitious for my trusty Yamaha PortaSound. And after all, isn't Christmas a time for forgiving?

I won't be doing an update next week as I'll be back home for Christmas, but by way of balance I will make my first update of the new year another tune from around the same time. It'll be much better - I promise!
