Biography

Canadian sound artist and media studies teacher Mark Templeton utilizes acoustic instruments, found sounds and sampled material to construct textured, collage-like electronic compositions. Since the release of his critically acclaimed “Standing on a Hummingbird” in 2007, his sound has been called “pastoral,” but also “painterly” in an attempt to describe how his sources are crumbled and reconstructed into new forms; a process further developed and realized on subsequent releases for Anticipate Recordings, Staalplaat and Sweat Lodge Guru.

Templeton’s works have been commissioned by organizations of contemporary dance, film and audiovisual disciplines. His live performances have at times been accompanied by Edmonton-based experimental filmmaker aAron Munson’s visuals. In 2009 this ongoing collaboration resulted in the release of M. Templeton & aA. Munson: “Acre Loss” on CD and DVD.

Templeton has performed at international festivals and alternative spaces such as MUTEK Festival (Montreal), Unsound Festival (Krakow), Eat This Festival (Utrecht), Galapagos (New York), Send + Receive Festival (Winnipeg), Half Die Festival (Rome), Café OTO (London) and Suoni Per Il Popolo Festival (Montreal).
