Auditory Self Expression
All songs written, produced and performed by Mark Iris
2011, 15 Tracks
My goal was to embody a different "character" in each song as I explored the themes of Love, Loss, Death and Self-Discovery. As you move through the tracks, notice how the timbre, style and gait of the main vocal changes to fit the thematic mood of the piece.
Recorded in Portland, Oregon in a downtown apartment on an iMac, using Logic, Midi Controllers, an AT-3035 and Blue Microphones.
Facing the Comet
2006, 12 Tracks
Facing the Comet is essentially an audio journal of my early-stage awakening. The album is a winding trip through the unnerving wiles and graces of fractal modernity, meant to be listened to from front to back.
Recorded in a bedroom in Buffalo, New York with a Macbook, Garageband and a single Shure 55SH Microphone.
Many thanks to the muses, the mysterious night, the wild one in my heart.
