Lex Freptic aka Mark Henderson / Bio

Re-introducing myself to the world of music after a 13 year absence {from my mind as well as the 'industry'...} Please excuse production... my focus is on creating music, not engineering... These are ALL home demos.
My music is all original, a mix of pop, electronica, rock, blues, ragga... keys, guitars and vocals multitracked by myself, and covers a period from 1994-1997 and 2009-2011. {apart from vox on 'Pie', (a collaboration with Captain Cardboard) drums on 'Sunset Over The Kiewa', and lead guitar on 'Natasha'}... Production is by myself... I hold no claims to being a great producer.... but hope that my music comes across as 'satisfactory'...
I hope some of you like my work... if you do, please "Like" :-)
As a songwriter, and a music lover, I believe that the emotional content of music is one of it's most defining features... the way we listen to music is actually a complex process, but if it is linear, and evokes a 'feeling', it is doing it's job... Lyrics in 'Modern' songs, {1930's to present day, approx 2:45-5:00 minutes long} tell stories, but it's the MUSIC that 'transports' one out of a current state of mind, and evokes a 'different' sentiment....
For Centuries, through the Classical Era, for example, ALL the Great Composers didn't need lyrics to generate that 'emotional response', many compositions highly religious in nature, but all still inspire feelings of Awe, Power, Sorrow, Joy, Love, Devotion, etc etc... For those of you who have never experienced a performance by a full orchestra of some of these Classical Masterpieces, I would suggest to you that it should be one of the 50 essential things that should be experienced in the course of a lifetime...
Here, in the 21st Century, with such a 'plethora' of music on hand, I find it interesting to note that this current generation are equally inspired by the music that 'Electronica' gives us, rythymic and 'trancelike' in it's ability to capture and 'hypnotise' the mind, as well as the more standard 'story-telling' songs... as an amateur keyboardist since childhood, 'making my own' music is something I have never 'not' known, and would transport myself as a kid with headphones on, letting the 'sounds' inspire what notes, chords and keys I played, and would find that if I emptied my mind, the music played would seem to 'evolve' by itself without my own concious 'input'... in a linear way, commensurate with my physical ability {muscle memory in fingers/hands, etc...}.
We are surrounded with complex rythyms and melodies in the everyday sounds around us, as well as the steady rythym of each our own internal beating hearts. Life WITHOUT music is incomprehensible to me... I only hope that my 'crude' recordings evoke 'something' within whoever finds themselves reading to this point.... With Love....
I'm working my way forward with an essentialy busted back; pain is a constant in my life, and dependent on my 'staff'' to walk little bitz at a time, but LIFE GOES ON!! "Whilst I'm still Alive, I'll Strive to Strive!! ;-)
So, again, to whoever finds themselves reading this, Live each day like it is your last, for every second counted is already in the past... but seriously, Get Tha Most Out Of Life, CELEBRATE "LIFE', and LIVE & LOVE! Be Good... {Y'all know what I mean..}
