Double bass (The Husband trio)
London 2019 (UK premiere)
Mark started playing double bass at 13, after finding the guitar and bass guitar too easy to carry around. He studied for his undergraduate in his home town of Wellington, New Zealand, and then freelanced around the country for four years. While doing his Masters in the blistering heat of Sydney, he worked with many of Australia’s top orchestras. In 2013 he moved to London seek his fortune, and was a member of Southbank Sinfonia in 2014. He currently enjoys working in London’s vibrant freelance scene, and has a varied career encompassing orchestral playing, chamber music, teaching and outreach. He spends his spare time reading and hanging out with his wife, a freelance cellist, and his cat, Romeo.
“This was a really cool project. The way each room of the house portrayed a different viewpoint of the family’s dysfunction, and each mini ensemble represented it, was fascinating. Each member of the audience got a different experience as they moved through the rooms, where different scenes were being played out simultaneously. I loved playing in “THE鍵KEY”, but also wish I could have seen it as an audience member.”
