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

28/06/2007 - A Normal Guy [Download]
Image for 'A Normal Guy'

This latest mister badman is the highest tune I've ever written. It was composed, recorded and initially mixed in the French Alps, at about 3,500ft. Vocals were recorded via headphones and the original mix done on my laptop speakers. It sounded shit, and languished on my hard drive as a 'lost cause' for over 2 years.

I recently rediscovered it whilst doing a bit of computer house-keeping and decided it wasn't all that bad after all. I fixed up the vocals as best I can, and completely remixed the music, and this is the result. If you've been paying attention, you might recognise the piece of music that fades in towards the end of the track...

I really like this - now that I'm back at work, I feel very much like a NORMAL girl again, boo!
