MARK FRANCOMBE Musician, Filmmaker, Game-designer & Kipple-monger


Here I shall try to post some of the work I have done for work. This is usually scoring short sequences for e-learning, interactive films and presentations. Despite being for “corporate” customers, I frankly am unable to produce ordinary, run of the mill corporate crap, as I refuse to believe that people are not totally accustomed to good and interesting sounds, even at work. It is usually just their completely reasonable fear of success or failure that prevails and veers corporate work into the average and the boring. I am simply not able to make work like this.

I am however very concerned with context and target group, and strive for my music to “fit” where it is supposed to.

I hope this page can become a kind of portfolio for future customers and would like to accept more commissions from film and game companies.

Please contact me if you wanna talk…

Infratek Onboarding
Infratek are a very forward and cool company, having the rather dull and important responsibility of changing Norway’s street light bulbs (among other things) Musically I have never been allowed to get away with more… Thank you Infratek!

KLP Information Security
This music for KLP, was supposed to be a bit of a “secret agent” style, for use in there security program I filmed for them. It was a fun project and a great customer to work with, very open to new things and infact the main character was a puppet! All other “actors” were totally normal business types (and one bad guy) who didnt seem to even notice that their co-worker was a merecat!

Verne for Eldre
Music for 2 films I made for Verne for Eldre regarding abuse against the elderly.

Norsk Industri – HMS/Psychosocialarbedsmiljo
This music was written as an “ironic” happy ending music to a very serious episode in the massive HMS program we made for Norsk Industri. The “placeholder” was George Micheals Careless Whisper, which was a hard act to follow, but this was the result.

TINE Onboarding Program
Music for Tine, the big Norwegian dairy, nothing too special here, move along.

OUS Oslo Universitetsykhus
This music for Oslo Universitetsykehus was for a program about how doctors and nurses should treat patients.

Corruption Statoil
This track is a mix of some of the various elements produced for this huge 9 episode Anti Corruption elearning film, that Transform made for Statoil and is also being implemented by the UN. This music was relatively “modular” allowing me to quickly make different vignettes for different lengths. I produced many different versions.

The Side Effect

This track was written for an episode of the Anti-doping program, Real Winner. The episode called for a flash back to the 70´s when many sportsmen were doping as a matter of course. This track was initially inspired by a track by Grand Funk Railroad, and certainly the beginning is a bit of a rip-off!

This track opens the marijuana episode of the “Out of it” program. It took 2 hours to write, based on readily available loops. This shows that within the wonderful world of e-learning, I have have to be creative to a budget and a timescale. It sucks frankly… but, well it’s what I do…damn…

Hydro – Travel Safety
This is cheesy nonsense, intentionally a bit out of tune, cos I love the bit in Manfred Mann’s version of Wild Thing where the guy play an Ocarina… um… that was a statement unrelated to this track… again.. knocked together in.. well 5 hours tops…

Statoil – Management learning program.
