Originally from Providence, RI, Mark
brought his multimedia talents to New York City on New Year's day 2001.
His fulfillment comes from diverse sources: engineering high-fidelity
sound for music and film, driving the audio industry forward with innovations
in electronics, and teaching guitar to a six-year-old. Within several
months of arriving in New York Mark was
not only producing and engineering music from his own sound studio but
also designing and setting up studios for clients.
At the age of three Mark was rarely seen without his
phonograph; at twelve, a guitar; and today, a digital multitrack studio.
Mark's passion for music and technology has blossomed into a life's work
of mixing international records in many genres and designing custom audio
tools for musicians and engineers. A trained musician, he also performs
with such bands as Planet Groove, In the Pocket, and Fat Buddah.
In the one year that he has been in new york, Mark's
audio recording and mixing skills have fueled collaborations with members
of Groove Collective, Orange Factory (Yoko Ono, Tina Ann), and signed
recording artists Jordan Zed and David Davinchi. His audio engineering
has been heard by countless viewers of the New York City-based independent
films 'Renewal' and 'The Descent of Walter McFea', by corporate clients
such as American Express and All-ways Communications, as well as viewers
of Mtv's annual Music Awards program.
Mark's interest in audio electronics stems from a desire
to create and improve the tools that musicians and engineers have at their
disposal: to expand the palette of what is musically possible. Custom
designs such as filterbanks and harmonic enhancers can be found at Sony
studios New York as well as with international touring artists Britney
Spears and Bon Jovi.
Mark's passion for sound and light has further led him
to show his work in black & white photography, to edit documentaries
on digital video, and to create the websites of companies such as Adcare
Health and Ron Rovig & Company consultants.
