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.

25/10/2012 - The Flow [Download]
Image for 'The Flow'

This is a track that zoe and I put together for E-Bru, back in 2001, but which we never finished. At the time it had some fast break-beat drums going on under the verse and went in a totally different direction, and there was also a second verse that was never recorded.

I think we played it live with Georgie a couple of times, but again it wasn't recorded.

However, it's such a beautiful song that I've decided it's high-time it was finished off. I've ditched the frantic drums, which I think were one of the sticking points that stopped us finishing it - they never really worked - and went for a much more toned-down, stripped-back vibe which brings out the lyric and captures the mood of the song a lot better, and I'm really happy with the end result.

I've also taken this opportunity to bring the site into the 21st century (a bit) so we now include an embedded music player. No more having to download a track to listen to it! Completely co-incidentally, and wholly appropriately, the player that I am using is called Flowplayer!
