Hello, I’m Mark and I live and work in Sheffield, UK

I write and produce my own music

Summer Break

The summer is nearly upon us! Holidays and increased childcare! So I'm taking a summer break from music and writing. I will probably find some time to continue making music and writing over the next 6-8 weeks but I won't set myself any goals, the pressure is off!

Creative Unblock

Over the last 4 years at times I've suffered with creative block and "over-working" tracks, so much so that I wasn't getting any music out into the world and wasn't really moving forward at all. These are my current techniques for dealing with those problems.

Setup

My current music creation setup is centred around Ableton Live on my MacBook Pro, but this is a fairly recent development for me.
