ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Liquid Maps

This album has been widely acclaimed and is often referred to by fans as "filmic" and as music that creates landscapes. As always Mark's guitar playing paints vivid pictures and compelling musical stories.

Very much an ensemble album this is music of places and atmospheres. Mark and the other members of the group paint vivid pictures and tell compelling musical stories. Each track tells as story of a different place, a different time, another stop along a journey.

The group features Mark's long time musical writing partner, keyboardist René von Grünig. René composed a number of the tracks on the album as well as co-producing the album with Mark. The other musicians on the album include, trumpet and fluegel horn player Christioph Leistner, bassist Christian Kuntner and Drummer Roberto Di Martino. This is the group which Mark has been touring with over the last five years.

Liquid Maps is a unique listening experience, an album that discerning listeners and guitar enthusiasts alike should not miss.


Mark Wingfield

One of the most original and distinctive electric guitarists playing today, Mark's improvising is always compelling, continually inventive and melodically uplifting.

As a composer Mark embodies a unique mixture of influences and backgrounds. His considerable experience performing and recording with European jazz groups such as SMQ, Scapetrace and his own group is mixed with his involvement in classical forms as both player and composer.

Mark is currently working with some of the UK's best classical performers both as a composer and as a player, mixing his unique style of jazz guitar with the beautifully performed compositions.

Having just completed a major composing commission, Mark is now playing concerts both with renowned classical harpsichordist Jane Chapman (a unique mixture of composition and improvisation) and his Guitar Encryptions tour with keyboardist René von Grünig.

Mark has also composed string quartets, works for wind and keyboards, piano and harpsichord. His compositions were recently the subject of a lecture at Goldsmiths College London to mark the opening of its new Contemporary Music Department and also featured in a composition lecture and workshop at Dartington College of Arts music department.

Other often eclectic influences such as Indian, Japanese and African music also feature strongly in Mark’s playing. These influences are fused with jazz and western classical music, and seamlessly integrated into a unique and highly distinctive musical voice. On his CD Fallen Cities, he collaborated with Lebanese singer Samia Afra, and continued his interest in non-western forms, working and performing with Turkish musicians such as Gökhan Özyavuz in Istanbul as well as Zambian musician KT Lumpa.

Mark has a long standing interest in the innovative use of technology in music, which he often uses to create new and unique guitar sounds as you can hear on Guitar Encryptions.
