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.

02/01/2005 - PS-2: 'Speed Rock Style' [Download]
Happy New Year! As promised, here is another early track from my Yamaha days. None of my tracks from this time had names, they were just given vague descriptions based on their style to help me remember what they were like. This was described as 'Speed Rock Style', although I've never heard any speed rock quite like this before. Maybe that was the name of the drum style used as backing. This was the second of nine tracks that I recorded using the PortaSound and its built-in sequencer, hence the PS-2 label (nothing to do with the Sony Playstation), and it's probably one of the best, certainly in terms of 'finished product'. Obviously, it sounds very dated now, but back in 1988 this kind of stuff was all the rage!
