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!

As Slade would annoyingly shout: "It's Christmas"! And as pedants would annoyingly correct them, "No - it's still advent - Christmas doesn't start until 25th December".

Amazingly, I've found another Christmas-themed song at the bottom of my song barrel, which is an arrangement of 'Little Drummer Boy' that I did for A-level music. I have absolutely no idea why I chose this piece for my arrangement. I think I just liked the tune.

The recording comes from an old cassette tape, so apologies for the quality. It is a simple MIDI recording of the parts, which were transcribed for printing purposes, not for performing purposes, so overall it's not the most inspiring recording I've produced. However, the arrangement is pretty good, I think, so hopefully there'll be some Christmas cheer to be squeezed out of it!

Happy Christmas!
