Some words from Mark about his release:
“The “Three Sketches” were created using a blend of field recordings, software, synths, and loops. They are what I call 'linear recordings' in that they don't have an arrangement, just a mix. They are like a straight line. You step on as the sounds are happening, and then you step off at the end. There may be minor variation throughout, but usually not enough to significantly divert the attention span. I listen to these sorts of pieces while concentrating on matters at work or enjoying a walking break outdoors. I have many hours of free music available for those who wish to further investigate my work.”
