"Music has three basic elements, rhythm, melody and harmony. For me to define it as music, one must have, discernibly, at least one of these. Without this, you cross the line into another art from; sound sculpture."

Collaborations:

Alongside his years of performing and recording jazz, Mark spent time studying western and non-western classical forms and developing further a long standing interest in Indian, African and Japanese music. On Mark’s CD Fallen Cities, he collaborated with Lebanese singer Samia Afra, and also worked and performed with Turkish musician Gökhan Özyavuz in Istanbul as well as Zambian musician KT Lumpa.

From 1999 to 2001 Mark was a member of the ground breaking internet group Res Rocket. The group consisted of musicians from around the globe who, using special software, collaborated to compose, perform and record for the first time ever, entirely over the internet. As well as producing a recording, the group played live in San Francisco, Paris, Oslo and London. As well as the regular members, guests such Peter Gabriel, Mat Black (Ninja Cut), Todd Rundgren and Tricky performed and recorded with the group.

Mark collaborated with the video artist Ivan Engler to produce a video work that was projected behind his jazz group during performances in Zurich in 2002.
