“The first time I heard Mark Mosher play an electronic music festival, he was the standout of the entire weekend. His music was awesome, and I’ve been a fan ever since. This guy has music technology down!” ― GEARY YELTON – PUBLISHER/PRODUCER NIGHTGEIST MEDIA | FORMER SR. EDITOR ELECTRONIC MUSICIAN MAGAZINE

Mark also performs improvisational musique concrète works centered around the Electron Octatrack dynamic performance sampler.

Informed by his past lives as custom composer for picture, playing 100s of shows as keyboardist for an alt-rock band, and his love for SciFi films like Forbidden Planet – Mark’s works have a cinematic feel – and when beat-driven – a live rock performance energy.

Mark has released 3 scifi inspired albums, 1 horror soundscape album, singles, remixes, and has a soundscape podcast called Sonic Encounters.
