Mark is a experienced professional film & media composer with commercially successful work in public theaters around the world.
I got started on the violoncello at age 5 and when I was 8, I won a scholarship to attend Christ Church Cathedral Choir, Oxford, where I experienced 4 hours of music making a day for roughly 5 years; concerts, recordings, TV and Radio broadcasts and a public performance every day of new music. In 1998, I completed a Masters in Music Composition for Film & Television at the London College of Music, and began scoring short films and independent features. In 2007, I got a gig scoring for the Philips Aurea product launch campaign (with a visually atmospheric art-film by Wong Kar Wai) - and the following year, a 4K feature documentary, 400 Years of the Telescope, for the International Year of Astronomy in 2009. Both projects I was handed enough budget to record at Abbey Road with the London Symphony Orchestra. Since then, I've been scoring films for Planetariums, Immersive films (9D moving-seats type of rides), animated and live-action dramatic films, while living in Los Angeles for the past 8 years.
