Mark Fell

Mark Fell is a Rotherham-based electronic musician, multidisciplinary artist and producer whose work has persistently challenged the boundaries between dance music and academic computer music practices. His new book ‘Structure and Synthesis: The Anatomy of Practice’ will be released in March 2022.

During the pandemic lockdown, Mark and Rian built a working prototype Max/MSP patch for remote collaboration. After wrestling with the intricacies of having remote parties install and configure connections, they found a new solution: Working with James Bradbury, a creative coder from Perth, Australia, they built a web audio based collaborative synth engine, which greatly simplified the barrier to play.

Their first collaboration was which was commissioned by the No Bounds festival.

For Algorithmic Art Assembly, they will create a second iteration, built upon their framework.
