ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Death Of Copyright EP is the first single taken from Mark's forthcoming album, Alterations: five almost-pop songs and their thematically derived almost-classical counterparts.

The title track is a disarmingly catchy pop number with a Bach breakdown of a chorus, several European languages sung by several singers, and some joyous whistling bursting through in the middle of it all. A DIY animation video for the song - created by Mark over several increasingly late nights - can be found on YouTube.

The EP features three additional tracks. The first is an atmospheric reworking of ABBA's bleak masterpiece The Day Before You Came, in a stripped down setting for piano, cello, violin and voice. The second is a verging-on-epic extended version of a track from the new album called Headlonging, a Philip Glass/Underworld inspired piece. The final track is the counterpart song to the The Death Of Copyright on Alterations, entitled The Forecaster: a grand cinematic affair in an overtly classical/romantic style; The Forecaster was a finalist in the open category of the UK Songwriting Competition 2011.
