Mark Mosher is an electronic musician, sound designer, composer and performer from Boulder, CO. He has performed festivals and theaters around the country such as Electro-Music Festival NY, Electro-Music Festival in Asheville NC, Pacific Northwest Synthfest, Art Institute of Sunnyvale, Georgia Tech, Midwest Electro-Music Experience, University of Denver’s Performance Black Box, The Dairy Center for the Performing Arts and more. His 2012 dark ambient album NO GHOSTS. JUST FEAR. cracked the Top 10 on Bandcamp’s Best-Selling Experimental Albums in Week of October 8th 2012.
At this event, Mark will be performing musique concréte by creating expressive sample-based “instruments” on-the-fly on a computer-less state-of-the-art hardware sampler called the Octatrack. He will build up his instruments in real-time by sampling his own synthesizers as well as capturing audio from contact mics, and output from other artists. He will then then perform with these instruments live. To compliment the music and sound, Mark will also project interactive visuals.
"This band is in a class of its own, where the more sociopathic side of Pink Floyd meets the twisted musical imagery of The Legendary Pink Dots and Edward Ka-Spel, as unlikely as it seems. Emotionally draining and highly recommended."
- François Couture, All Music Guide
Orbit Service is the musical project of Colorado-based producer/engineer Randall Frazier (helmet room, Bela Karoli, Kal Cahoone) produced in collaboration with Kim G. Hansen (Antenne), Dennis Swanson (Day Dissolved Dream) and Kirill Nikolai (Still Light).
"Atmospheric sounds of shifting density like time lapse images of weather patterns."
- Dave Herrera, Westword
"…this imaginative Colorado quartet gently weaves acoustic guitar, soft electric guitar, tranquil drums and often subliminal keys, bass and accordion into a dreamy mix…"
- Bryan Reesman, Downbeat Magazine
"Immense, beautifully epic sadness…."
"Orbit Service delivers an atmospheric dose of brooding, black hole rock. Eerie strings hang over the album like dark, velveteen drapes, and an ambient moodiness prevails."
- Georgiana Cohen, Splendid Magazine
"The group's layered, melancholic sounds will blow its listeners' minds."
- Kevin Hopper, Albuquerque Journal
