By age 14, Mark Fauver had checked out nearly every single record from his local library, ranging from free jazz to ethnomusicology field recordings; in addition, his father’s collection of over 3000 modern symphonic music records shaped his tastes into something quite eclectic. Mark’s interest in music lead to his interest in physics; he completed degrees in Physics(BS, UCLA) and Biomedical Engineering (MS, UW) and works as a engineering scientist specializing in scientific instument design with over 15 patents and 20 publications.  He obtained a certificate in audio production from UW extensions in 1998, and worked in multimedia research at the human interface technology lab (UW, 2001-2006). Mark has strived to integrate new technologies into his music, and primarily focuses on production, helping others to record, arrange and assemble a sonic palette. Mark uses many software tools to create hybrid otherworldly sounds, with Ableton Live being his primary one.  He is a multi-instrumentalist (flute, windsynth, keys, bass, tabla, kalimba) who likes performing as a DJ of his own loops and found sounds. He was worked with Rafe Pearlman, Fognode, Trent Moorman, Jess Grant, Patrick Strole, and toured with the Aaron Engish Band. Radio play includes NPR’s All Things Considered, KEXP, KZSU, and a host of other independent and internet radio stations. As a film composer, he has written feature-length soundtracks (“The Yellow Sign”, “Patriot Guard Riders”), a host of short indie film soundtracks, and composed the official theme of the H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival. Mark has a new music recording facility in the works, with plans to open by summer 2012.
