About

Mark Tamea is an English composer, whose music draws on the infinite potential of electroacoustic experiments and field recordings. His work clashes the commonplace and the imaginary, the discernible and the esoteric, fusing this juxtaposition with delicate harmony.

He takes the listener on an emotional journey of self-exploration, whilst creating an intense awareness of the immediate environment - the physical world. As Landschaft puts it, Tamea’s music “moulds itself around the mood of the listener transporting that experience to a more vivid place”. His live performances transform this journey into a dialogue of improvisations inspired by the audience and the setting – creating a deep connection between the musician and the listener.

Mark Tamea has been active within alternative music since the early 1980s and was among the first to employ digital sound modification techniques to create innovative ambient experiences. His musical style and ideology evolved and he was deeply influenced during a period of collaboration with Kymatik, an experimental collective that set out to question the boundaries of sound perception. His other influences include Ryoji Ikeda, The Hafler Trio and Marcel Duchamp.

To date, he has produced seven albums under his own name, the most recent of which, Atomism, was released in June 2013. He has also contributed to a number of compilations including Ressonus Net - Volume One, Gonzo Circus - Mind The Gap, and Doppelganger 141. His work has been released by several labels including Paradigm Records and AtmoWorks.

Mark Tamea currently lives and works in the Netherlands.
