My name is Mark Salzwedel. I have done and continue to do lots of different things in my life (I’ve been an actor, a game designer, a hypnotherapist, a translator and a lot more), but this is primarily a website to host my blogging about writing and music, and arts that use both, like musical theatre and opera. I am a big fan of unique ideas, whether it is in the narrative structure of a novel, the use of chord inversions in a cantata, or especially a really innovative menu at a restaurant. My narrative tropes tend to favor robots, aliens, time travelers, fairies, and mutants. My musical style ranges from silly cartoon soundtracks to overwrought organ-violin duets about archdemons.
