Mørk

The official website of north-norwegian pianist MØRK. 

Hello, and thank you for visiting morkmusic.com. I think it's fair to say that you have some interest in my music one way or the other. That's good. 

The frontpage has the latest news. Feel free to read my bio (to the right), listen to music, look at photos. There are some links to Facebook, Youtube and the iTunes Store at the bottom of this page, as well as on the frontpage. Or even better, if you would like to visit Bandcamp and buy my music really, really cheap, you could do that as well.

 

All the photos you see on this page are taken by Carl Christian Lein Størmer. 1997 forever.

 

For all booking and general inquiries please use the contact form.

The pianist and composer MØRK is a melody-maker. He tells gripping stories without words, using his mechanical piano. The norwegian word «Mørk» translates to «Dark» in english.
