Mark Francombe

Mark Francombe

Mark Francombe originally came to Norway from England, as a musician in the influential «dream-pop» band Cranes in 1993. Finally moving to Oslo in 1997.

In addition to working with music, he is a film-maker, experimental computer game developer and he also makes sculptures.
Mark spends much of his time building and troubleshooting electronic circuits for his home built modular synthesiser, and works on solo projects and film scores as well as having an electronic band, not surprisingly called «Electricity»  The debut album «Plant» was released in February 2015.

As a film-maker, he works with training films for business but also makes dark experimental «Lo Fi» films, that often use time-lapse or obscure-animation techniques.

He is an sculptor. He makes what he calls «Kipple», a term derived from Philip K. Dick, meaning detritus and ephemera, that is also reminiscent of Mexican magic, «day of the dead» and tacky versions of the boxes of Joseph Cornell.
