musical collaborations

After Mark left his academic work behind he increasingly focussed on his longtime passion of being a musician. He has been studying the North Indian Bamboo Flute ‚Bansuri‚ with the Indian Bansuri Maestro R.K.

About the CDs and Mark’s style

Mark’s style of flute playing and vocals is mainly influenced by North Indian Classical music, by the Tuvinian throat singing traditions of Mongolia, and by various modern ambient artists. In his work with several musicians Mark is pursuing three different genres of music:

5

Devotional-Sacred, created by mantra chants and traditional Indian Ragas played on the Bansuri, such as on the album ‚Disciple‚ or as in ‚Parimal in Silence‘. These CDs lend themselves well for all types of deep meditation, Yoga practice, spiritual/devotional and heartcentered disciplines etc.

5

Meditative-Relaxing, created by weaving guitar, Bansuri and soft percussion into a tapestry of sound that is very appealing to ear and spirit, supporting any relaxing or meditative mood. This genre appears on ‚Waves of Silence‚, and on ‚Dharma Moments‚.

5

Shamanic-Ambient, created by soundworlds, overtone chants, powerful percussion from frame drums, claypots etc., and Bansuri flutes. This genre reflects the profound ecstasies and the challenging depths of shamanic journeys. It can be heard on ‚Wachuma’s Wave„, on ‚Mantram‚, and on ‚Nada Terma‚.

Mark’s flute playing – the bansuri

A mild and quiet evening in the big meditation hall of an Indian Ashram. Thousands are gathered to listen to the great Bansuri maestro Hariprasad Chaurasia. Into the pindrop silence his tunes descend from heaven and put on us a spell from the beyond. I feel my heart chakra expanding rapidly. The magic of his playing moves me to the core. This hollow bamboo seems to hold all the secrets of the universe, seems to point the way to the divine. Hariprasad plays for almost three hours, and the world becomes a different place, infused with spirit.

At the time of this concert I was struggling with a serious heavy metal poisoning. My body was very sick. I was constantly dizzy, irritated, and prone to fatigue attacks and headaches. I was certain that I was going to die. In the attempt to support my healing I had started working with entheogens. During the journeys I listened to Hariprasad’s Bansuri, and the fascination with the sound grew to incredible proportions. I would listen to nothing else, convinced that the divine tunes of this bamboo flute would heal me.
