Having sunshine overhead day in and day out would be rather monotonous...
Clouds are Nature's poetry to be read like a person's countenance...
Cloudscapes are for dreamers and their contemplation benefits the soul...*
Look up, Airborne Mark is back with his latest music release.
The new EP comprises five cloud themed songs which cover very down to earth aspects of journeying through life. Relationships, identity and perseverance are the subject matter that echoes strongly throughout the record. Narrated from author’s perspective in a reflective spoken word manner.
The EP was recorded over five months mostly at The Lab Studios under production of London based Australian musician Byron Hosking. Each track meticulously layered with live instruments create perfect musical landscape for Airborne Mark's narration. Vintage synths, piano and the electric guitar proved to be perfect tools for Byron Hosking to capture energy and emotion of each track.
CloudQuartered EP also features a song produced by B Szczesny (of Rebeka, Brennnessel), a long time Airborne Mark's collaborator, and is released with BeyondNess video produced by Rahul DeCruz.

Not only am I excited about this new project because it's long overdue but also because of the fact that Byron Hosking is producing it. Such a massive privilege to work with a talent of this magnitude. Anyways, I'm aiming to release the EP at the end of the January 2012 with a premiere of a music video that has already been shot. STAY TUNED!
My accent so heavy... it stings your ears... A little break in recording #origami #scorpion
I've hooked up with great producer and musican - Byron Hosking and we're working at Tha Labs Studios in London.
I'm really excited as it has been 2 years since the release of "Six Folds and a Throw"- my debut EP. I've been working really hard ever since and hopefully new songs will show that. Can't wait to share it with you! So far I have 3 out of 5 songs done and already begun working on the artwork. This EP will also be available in physical format. Stay tuned.
"Six Folds and a Throw" Ep - Press Release
By day a primary school teacher, by night a rapper and a graffiti artist in between; welcome to the where-clouds-abound world of Airborne Mark.
At the sunset of 17th September 2010 “Six Folds and a Throw” EP is finally up and away. Airborne Mark, of a quirky heaven-sent accent fame, teamed up with an acclaimed progressive electronic producer, B Szczesny (Brennnessel Netlabel) to create a uniquely sounding debut EP.
“Jelly Beans” is a recount of his personal journey from disliking being in the classroom to the realisation of being in the moment with the kids while waiting for his artistic aspirations to come to fruition.
“The Life You Can’t See” paints a picture of challenges he experienced settling into the London scene as an English rapping foreigner.
“Wind / Vapour / Dew / Frost” and “A.I.R” embody the light-hearted side of the EP, introducing Airborne Mark’s ever present aviation theme in a true braggadocio style. “Six Folds and a Throw” also contains an exclusive nu-disco remix of “A.I.R” by B Szczesny which debuted in its instrumental version on his latest album “Beyond Midnight”.
Ladies and Gentlemen. This is your captain speaking. Fasten your seat-belts, we are ready to enter the hyperspace.
