Hi, I’m Mark Rushton.  I create ambient music and electronic music.

You can find my music through these retailers and services:

Podcasts are now hosted by Libsyn at http://ambient.libsyn.com/

My old podcast (2004-2014) is still accessible via the RSS feed or the iTunes feed.

Every so often I contribute sound-art pieces to the Disquiet Junto at Soundcloud.  Follow me at Soundcloud to stay aware of these and other music pieces I post there.

If you want to use my music in YouTube videos, go right ahead.  I’m in ContentID.

I’m a member of ASCAP and most of my commercially available recordings are in their Titles Database if you need a Label Code.

Want to use my music some other way?  Email me via mark@markrushton.com and ask.

I also post about my music and other crap at Twitter: @AmbientRushton

The music I’ve created is for my own enjoyment.  My day job is in the computer software industry, and I like to use noise-canceling headphones and this kind of music to concentrate on my work.  If other people like or want to use this music in a particular way, I’m happy to make it available.

Sometimes I get asked what artists inspire or influence my music.  That’s a difficult question to answer, as I’m always listening to new/different things.  On a large scale, I suppose Brian Eno’s work from the mid 70s to the late 80s, guitarist Bill Nelson’s home recordings since the late 70s, In A Silent Way by Miles Davis, Pat Metheny, Bud Powell, Loscil, Fennesz, Harold Budd, and most of the oeuvre of David Sylvian – especially his 1988 collaboration with Holger Czukay, “Plight & Premonition” – particularly the track “Plight (The Spiralling of Winter Ghosts)”.
