Drumscapes is a solo studio/live project created by Mark Heaney. 

Drumscapes features Mark's live drums against a backdrop of intricate soundscapes fusing music from Jazz, Trip Hop, Drum and Bass, Electronica, and others.

Live, Mark uses an LPD8 and Ableton live which enables manipulation of the audio in the moment allowing for improvisation within the framework of the tracks".

Mark’s solo project follows a prolific drumming career as a member of bands including post punk icons Gang of Four and John Squire’s Seahorses. He has also toured and recorded with many producers and artists worldwide.

"Drumscapes is a project I had been wanting to make happen for years. A chance for me to express myself in exactly the way I have always wanted to with no compromises. To create music that not only showcases the drums but that reflects my own life experience, emotions and the human condition".
