As I usually work by a process of improvisation, and often use memories of environments / landscape as a starting point for a composition - I gradually began to think of creating a longer composition which would seamlessly merge pieces around the work I've just created, which would give the listener the impression of a journey through various environments / landscapes (both physical and emotional) gradually moving from the familiar to the more extreme / isolated and "darker" spaces and then gradually returning "home" at the end of the piece.
Over 2011 I worked on a number of new compositions and began the long process of reworking / remixing which would eventually became "An Idea of north / learning to walk" which will be my first release on n5MD. I'll like to thank my friend Bobby Bird (Higher Intelligence Agency) who did the final mastering on the CD which really opened the sound dynamics and enhanced the "cinematic" feel I was striving for. Please enjoy. [Learn more about Mark Harris...]
