About this album
Synaesthesia is an electronic concept album. It represents Mark's first serious attempt at an album sized composition and was influenced in style and form by Jean-Michel Jarre album works such as Rendezvous and Chronologie.

The music tells the unconscious story of a journey, from the vast blackness of space, through life, energetic and peaceful, through fantastical worlds to death and beyond. The music is a rich and melodic sound-scape that has to power to transport you to another world.

The origins of this album date back to the mid-nineties, and music that Mark composed on an Ensoniq ESQ-1 synthesizer and recorded on tape. In 1999 he recorded a version that was almost entirely new, using a Yamaha SY-85 synthesizer, then in 2002 the entire album was resequenced using the earliest draft of his custom designed software, Noise Station. In 2015 the album was resequenced using the latest technology to create the ultimate incarnation of this, his first major musical work.
