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.

My Other On-Line Music

24/10/2004 - Yum Dub [Download]
A classic example of a track whose name never got beyond the 'working title' phase. However, the track itself is finished and was one of several tracks written for a dance performance (or possibly that dirty word, 'physical theatre') which was taken to the Edinburgh Fringe in 1999. I can't remember most of the details except that it was called 'How To Make A Human Being' and had 'something to do with cloning'. I worked on this with Juleka Nwankwo, who I have since collaborated with many times. This is a good example of an early collaboration, where Julie was mainly directing me and trying to stop me from drifting too far from the brief. I'm not altogether sure that she succeeded... to be honest I'm not altogether sure what the brief was!
