Marka Tamea: English / Dutch / Citizen. Traveller.

Marka Tamea is a composer who creates using electro-acoustic experiments, synthesis, electronics and field recordings.

The music is characterized by a fusion of the commonplace and the imaginary, the discernible and the esoteric, which is fused with delicately harmony.

The resulting experience takes the listener on an emotional journey of exploration while creating a heightened awareness of the environment and the physical world.

As Landschaft puts it, Tamea’s music “moulds itself around the mood of the listener transporting that experience to a more vivid place”.

Marka has been active in the alternative music scene since the early 1980s and was one of the first to use digital sound modification techniques to create innovative ambient experiences.

The musical style and ideology evolved through ongoing collaborations with Kymatik, an experimental collective that challenges the boundaries of sound perception.

Marka currently lives and works in The Netherlands.
