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

02/04/2008 - Be This The Verse [Download]
Image for 'Be This The Verse'

This was one of the early pieces of music that I wrote with Julie (circa 1998, I think). To be honest, I can't remember whether it was for a dance piece that she was working on, or whether it was just written for its own sake. It is based on the Philip Larkin poem "This Be The Verse" and involved some early sampler/4-track experimentation... and a fair bit of musical experimentation to boot!

The more observant above you may also notice a slight similarity between this and a certain E-Bru tune...

Hi really liked the adaptation of this is the verse, did you try and do the same with other parts of his poetry?

Thanks Matt!

We didn't look at any of his other works at the time, and it's not something I have any plans of revisiting at the moment, but I'm glad you liked what we did!
