He has presented on the topic of Music & Healing at various conferences and seminars including the 2004 Advocate Healthcare Dimensions of Excellence Conference with music therapist Soozie-Cotter Schaufele. Mark’s story and ministry of music have been featured in numerous news articles, including the Journal Times (Racine, WI ), the Oelwein Register (Oelwein, IA), and the Daily Herald (Lake County, IL), and on television station KWWL in Waterloo, Iowa. “While Mark plays with great technical precision, more importantly is the sensitivity and soulfulness that comes through his delivery” (Ken Kolodner). Mark teaches the hammered dulcimer in Indiana and performs throughout the Midwest. He has recorded three CDs, including his latest release SunRise, Hammered dulcimer solos and duets with Ken Kolodner, a nationally known traditional musician…”SunRise is a study in the fine art of the duet” (Sing Out!). Mark also produced the compilation CD
2040: Regeneration – A hybrid feature documentary that looks to the future, but is vitally important NOW!
The 2040 journey began with award-winning director Damon Gameau (That Sugar Film). Motivated by concerns about the planet his 4-year-old daughter would inherit, Damon embarked on a global journey to meet innovators and changemakers in the areas of economics, technology, civil society, agriculture, education and sustainability. Drawing on their expertise, he sought to identify the best solutions, available to us now, that would help improve the health of our planet and the societies that operate within it. From marine permaculture to decentralised renewable energy projects, he discovered that people all over the world are taking matters into
their own hands.
This journey is the central premise for the documentary ‘2040’, a story of hope that looks at the very real possibility that humanity could reverse global warming and improve the lives of every living thing in the process. It is a positive vision of what ‘could be’, instead of the dystopian future we are so often presented.
