Elysian Fields
Elysian Fields "Homage"
Elysian Fields "Homage"

Mark J. Dye is the musical 'director' of Elysian Fields, a Florida-based prog band. Dye plays everything on this CD and has help from two vocalists.The band has released many CDs over the years (all out-of-print at this time) but had been inactive for a while. Dye and vocalist Andrew Winton got together again in 2003 to work on some new ideas. From that session they developed the idea for the 'tribute' CD "Homage". While some of these are more successful than others, all of the tracks certainly capture the essence of their heroes' work. There is also an uncredited 12th track, a re-working of The Beatles "Across the Universe". "The all original compositions pay tribute to the groups, Focus, Supertramp, Kansas, Genesis, Emerson, Lake & Palmer, Styx, Gentle Giant, The Alan Parsons Project, Yes, and King Crimson. Fans of these groups won't be disappointed. Elysian Fields faithfully pays homage to them while still retaining their own unique sound. The composition, "Childhood's End", is in memory of the three thousand people who lost their lives on September 11, 2001 and the soldiers who've given their lives to prevent it from happening again. Fans of prog will love this CD. Mark J. Dye has been involved with music since the age of 10. He played guitar, violin, and keyboards in various groups that he formed from 1965-1984. He also has a bachelor's degree in music composition from the University Of South Florida. In 1978 he moved to Los Angeles with his progressive rock group, "Elysian Fields". After changing their name to "Impulse" they released five albums on the Electric Fantasy label. While living in Los Angeles he became a Midi and synthesis specialist for many top artists like Van Halen, Guiffria, Gino Vannelli, and even appeared on Entertainment Tonight as a technical advisor for electronic music. He now operates a state of the art digital recording facility in Saint Petersburg, Florida. Mark Doran, Suzanne Stokes, Joe First, Dr. Jean, Mar. Harman and many others have collaborated with Mark from 1986 to the present. He continues to teach music, write music for hire and arrange and perform material for other songwriters. His next goal is to do music soundtracks for motion pictures. Mark and Andrew have been co-writing music together since 1988. Their music has been heard all over the world and includes five other CDs besides HOMAGE." [CD Baby website]
