Marc Gordon is a guitarist, composer and guitar coach living in the magical Teifi Valley in West Wales. Is involved in the rich local musical scene, where he teaches and mentors pupils of all abilities, ages and genres as well as providing arrangements and support music for singers & songwriters.
Marc has been playing and performing for a long time both as a soloist, in a broad spectrum of styles, and in Welsh & Irish Folk, Blues, Jazz, Soft Rock/Pop bands & duo’s. The last six years has seen Marc focussing on composing, arranging and performing his own descriptive solo pieces; of nature, and ‘portraits’ of people he
meets, where he uses the vitality of music to communicate images and emotions to his audience.
As he enjoys ‘fresh’ music, many of his pieces are primarily improvisation around a concept framework, which means that no two performances are exactly the same. So you can either get involved in discovering the images his music provokes or just chill-out and enjoy.
When asked to categorise his music Marc struggles to identify a genre that suits, as his special style embodies Classical, Jazz, Folk, Blues and Rock. His coach suggested "Isomorphism" as his music provokes involvement in his imagery and allows space
for you to explore your own images and emotions.
Marc is also the musical element of the performance poetry duo The Chilly Dogz -with Harry Rogers
