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!

My Other On-Line Music

10/04/2005 - I Am Martin [Download]
Image for 'I Am Martin'In the Summer of 2000 I was part of the comedy group ...inexplicable... who took their show 'A Man Called Martin' to the Edinburgh Festival (much to the indifference of the rest of the world). I was involved as writer, technical director and composer, as well as being responsible for concocting a selection of strange sound effects. For example, have you ever wonder what it would sound like to photocopy a cow?

The show went through numerous rewrites on its way to Edinburgh, including the choice of music used as an introduction. The final version included a rather strange love letter from Stephen Hawking to Tessa Sanderson, but in the original it was agreed (for some reason) that 'Celtic trance' was the way to go. This is the result, which includes a plinky-plonk version of the ...inexplicable... theme (originally written by Al Boley, now of It's A Friday fame).
