Marko is musician/composer who was born into a family where everyone knew how to play an instrument and sing. It was only natural for him to start making music of his own. As a band musician, rock and pop music were close to his heart, but he was also interested in making electric and orchestral tracks. At some point he realized that the music he was creating most could be described as epic cinematic orchestral music. If you are looking for orchestral music resembles a real symphony orchestra, Marko is the man for the job.
