Song "Act Natural" Helps Me Crack the Top 25 for US and Top 100 for Global Electronica Charts!
Speaking of ReverbNation, my song "Act Natural" trended over multiple days just after I uploaded it boosting me up in the Electronica charts - woot! Thanks to all the listens I broke into the top 25 in the US and the top 100 globally for the Electronica charts the week of November 10th!
Fear Cannot Save Us is inspired by great concept albums such as Dark Side of the Moon and Tangerine Dreams Sorcerer film soundtrack. While I was not trying to copy these albums I do give them a nod here and there. In "Act Natural" you can hear a nod to Dave Gilmour at 2:26 in the track. You'll never guess which synth I used :^) I'll reveal the answer in my next newsletter.
Back in October I announced that I'd be performing in the Concréte Mixer Concert at the University of Denver's glorious Gates Concert Hall at Lamont School of Music. It was a music career highlight for me and just a fantastic show and audience.
I finally got around to creating a flickr photo album. I also scanned the program if you'd like to learn more about the this Music Concréte series including details about the pieces and the technology.

"Some of Denver's Most Challenging Music Finds a New Audience at DU...Perhaps out of this performance, a new crop of adventurous musicians will take root in Denver or at least a greater awareness of the existence of an experimental scene in Denver spread to people who might be completely ignorant of it." — Tom Murphy, Westword Magazine
"3 Years in the making , Mark Mosher Release New Cinematic Electronica Album "Fear Cannot Save Us"" — Mark Mosher Music News
"Mark Mosher is one of the most active synth-fanatics in the Denver area. He creates music, leads a scene of performers, helps organize the Boulder Area Synth Meetup, does example and tutorial videos for hardware and software - and probably doesn't sleep much. This last week he put out a new album Fear Cannot Save Us, which is a continuation of the science fiction themes from his earlier albums Reboot and I Hear Your Signals, but is also one of the finest classic electronic music albums I've heard in a while." — Darwin Grosse, Art + Music + Technology Podcast
"Best Experimental Mix Denver 2014 - Watt? Amplified and Supercharged Music Expression. Mark Mosher organized the Boulder Synthesizer Meet-Up to connect with others interested in using technology in music. He found kindred spirits in internationally touring trombone player Darren Kramer and Victoria Lundy of the Inactivists and the now-defunct Carbon Dioxide Orchestra. The trio played through Mosher's audio rig, with Kramer processing his trombone through analog and digital devices and Lundy joining him on her theremin. Playing separate sets with a collaborative performance at the end, Kramer, Lundy and Mosher presented a tour de force on the current state of electronic music and its future." — Westword Newspaper
