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!

There is ruin and decay
In the House on the Hill:
They are all gone away,
There is nothing more to say.

   - The House On The Hill
     Edwin Arlington Robinson, 1894

This is an excerpt from a longer piece that I wrote with Julie, called House On The Hill. It was the third of a trilogy of moody Gothic pieces we wrote for dance company Inter-fiction, each between 20-25 minutes long and performed with live dancers in front of wall-to-ceiling video projections. This third effort was undeniably the most successful, and created a very unsettling feeling which was particularly present in the synergy between the video and the music, which was written to picture.

This section is a sound-scape from around the middle of the piece and depicts the separation of two of the characters as they are drawn hypnotically towards the source of the evil energy that has taken hold of them.
