Such sad sad news. An absolute hero of mine. It was his music that introduced me into the optigan® world. Years later I bought Mark’s Mellotron from him, and talked with him quite a bit about stuff. A real gentleman, whose work was incredibly influential on me. May God bless him, his family, and us fans.

Thanks Pea for posting something about Mark’s death. I too was introduced to the Optigan® after hearing Sparklehorse. I was fortunate enough to meet him a couple of times and the last time we talked a little about Optigans.

This man was a huge influence on not only my music, but the way I look at the world.

It is so sad that he is gone, and I for one now feel quite lost without the comfort of knowing that he is somewhere out there making music.

did he actually own/play an optigan® on recordings or just samples of one?

yes, he owned/played optigans and orchestrons
