Welcome to Mashine Music, the home for the music and work of David Mash— guitarist, composer, synthesis, educator, author, and futurist. After 44 years of association with Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts – in a variety of roles, the last of which was as Senior Vice President for Innovation, Strategy, and Technology, I have decided to return full-time to making music and working with the music technology industry to invent new musical tools.
I have been using the word play on my name (Mash) + the “ine” suffix (Mashine) as my publishing company, band name, and corporate identity since the early 1980s. Check out samples of my new work, a collection of existing releases, and check out the Ictus Archive, Ictus was the band in which I experimented with combining machines with humans that led to what is today Mashine Music. I’ll also be blogging about work with which I’m involved and the music technology world at large. Thanks for visiting!
I also make music under the artist persona/brand: Stefan, which I use to release new meditative music. Check out his music on Spotify, Apple Music, or wherever you get your digital music.
Also I have recently been featured on Korg’s website for my work with them on the re-releases of the classic Korg Arp 2600FS and the new 2600 Module. Check my new Blog Post for video lessons on the more esoteric features of these instruments!
Breaking News: New Mashine Music Release:
The Lost Book of David Mash
I set a goal for myself in the winter of 1974 to write song a day for a month, with no instrument in hand. I was a student at Berklee College of Music and this was an exercise to help me develop my inner hearing/ear and to put into use all the new harmonic, melodic, and rhythmic concepts I was learning. I took the manuscript book home to Detroit for the summer, thinking I would arrange some of the tunes, but the summer got busy and I forgot about the project, and left the manuscript book at my mom’s apartment. 45 years later, when moving my mom out of that apartment, I found an envelope labeled, “David’s Music,” and inside was this old manuscript book with 23 songs I had written and forgotten about! So in 2022, 48 years after I wrote them, I recorded 10 of the tunes, and thus was born the album, “The Lost Book of David Mash.”
