“According to the traditions of neoclassicism, captivating melody tells you about the misty blue. Maybe it's the fog, the sky can be wrapped in swaddling clothes, maybe it's a mirage. One thing we know for sure - it's a mystery. And this music from Mark Sutton is beautiful and tender.”
“По традициям неоклассики пленительная мелодия расскажет вам о misty blue. Может быть это туман, может быть это небо в пелене, может быть это призрачная мечта. Одно мы точно знаем - это загадка. И Эта музыка прекрасна и нежна.”
“For all those who enjoy cinematic and theme music there is no better way than listen to this score from composer Mark Sutton who delivers a highly reflective and memorable piano solo. Don' t miss the opportunity to read an interview with the composer on Nagamag”
“"Crest of Wave" by Mark Sutton is a romantic story which unfolds gentely and performed with sweet dynamics taking place on a Yamaha grand piano, a story that not hides a melancholy like a good old memory or a lost love. Very emotive!”
“British producer Mrk Sutton, with his track “The Birth Of An Empire” on Wold Paths, give us a taste of his forthcoming album “Republic To Empire. A cinematic emotive theme with melacholic tones and wonderful rich strings to initiate a daydreaming for the glory of old empires.”
What are the genres that describe better your music style?
Few words about your musical background and career?
My family are mainly all musicians and music and theatre were encouraged growing up. I've not played live too many times, but one of my highlights was accompanying a ukulele player for the Cheltenham Jazz Festival a few years back.
My main aim is to get my music distributed to as many ears as possible. The positive feedback I receive about my tunes always spurs me on to do more.
Do you remember your first connection of love to music that was the right impact to be a music artist now?
When I was around 10 years old I remember starting to play the piano. I started creating some small tunes and my parents decided they would send me to have some piano lessons but after 6 months the teacher decided she could not teach me as I played by ear and once I had the tune in my head all the fingering was wrong.
Elton John, Scott Joplin and James P. Johnson were all great inspirers for me growing up.
How has your music progressed over the years?
Over the last 15 years in particular, my music has more or less been channeled. I sit at the piano and literally tune into my higher self and the tunes seem to flow from my fingers. I've also dabbled with orchestrating my tracks using Logic Pro and these seem to have been widely well received, although my first love and inspiration is from the piano.
Do you favour a particular type of piano?
At the moment I play a baby grand K.Kawai GL-30. I love the tone and speed of the notes from the way the keys are weighted, they seem to encourage me to play. I've had quite a few pianos over the years, Yamaha, Kaps and a Kemble/Mozart limited edition. All of which have played their part in helping me do mine.
Music has no borders and many of us we may listen to more genres that we are mainly involved. So share with Nagamag which track comes first in your mind from music but is NOT similar to your genre?
Supertramp "Logical Song"
Of Course Nagamag would love to listen also which track from a similar artist you admire?
