Mark Deutsch can best be described as a 21st century Renaissance man. A professional musician since the age of twelve, he is a visionary artist with a background in non-linear mathematics, sacred systems and cosmology. His extensive experience as a classical bass and sitar player combined with his deep understanding of vibrational systems led him to create his patented groundbreaking instrument the Bazantar - A mesmerizing multi-textured instrument which draws on both Eastern and Western traditions. His breathtaking musical explorations invoke the ancient traditions of trance ritual and embody a sacred artistry rarely heard in contemporary cultures.
Since the creation of the Bazantar and the critically acclaimed release of his first solo recording "Fool", Mark has been much in demand as a solo performer and as a session musician. On the collaborative side, his music has attracted an eclectic array of some of today's finest musicians, including Grammy award-winning cellist David Darling, film composer David Julyan (Insomnia, Memento), electronic violinist Kenji Williams of ABA Structure, seminal Chicago rock band Tortoise, and jazz luminaries such as William Parker, Roy Campbell, and Hamid Drake.
Mark currently resides in San Francisco while working on his second solo release, the film score for Roko Belic's (Ghenghis Blues) new film "Twilight Men", and a collaboration with didjeridu master Stephen Kent. The word is getting out and some of the most respected musicians, scientists and sonic adventurers are looking to him as a revolutionary guide to these newfound realms of vibration and sound.
