Mark Bartels Music Composition

After several years of steadily building a following for his original music compositions, our sound designer, Mark Bartels, experienced a breakout year in 2012. He composed tracks for Ameristar and McDonald’s TV spots and a variety of other clients. Mark always enjoys the opportunity to include live instrumentation in his compositions. This year, he recorded musicians and vocalists from St. Louis, Chicago, Nashville and Tokyo. Mark has twice received Addy Award recognition for compositions.
