Mark Wink Shares Modern Pop Single Titled ‘Down Down’

Mark Wink is a multitalented digital genius who is most known for his work as a lyricist, composer, and story writer.

As part of his primary role, he consults with major enterprises and industry-leading technology providers in his capacity as a digital transformation specialist.

In his younger years, he had a great deal of creativity. He penned short tales, participated in the theatre, drew portraits, created comics, and even entertained the idea of attending film school in Vienna.

In spite of this, he made the choice to major in engineering and immediately began working in the technical sector of the industry.

In addition to that, he earned a master’s degree in economics and went on to have a fruitful career as a manager in the information and technology industry.

The cinematic tunes written by Mark are filled with bright and vibrant electronic components that produce a steady dance of energy throughout the song. “Down Down” is the name of his most recent creative endeavour.

The song “Down Down” has received a great deal of positive response and blends not just soul and groove music but also aspects of current electronic dance music and pop music. The vocals contain what some people refer to as a “Barry White touch”.

Everyone will be on the dance floor thanks to the high-energy sounds and captivating tunes that he creates. If you’re a lover of electronic dance music (EDM), pop, or everything in between, you’re going to discover something in Mark Wink’s new song that you really like.

Where are you from (hometown)?

How did you get into music?
It was in mid-May 2016 when a speaker at a symposium set the trigger to get me into music.

Do something you’ve never done before. If you want to follow new, innovative ways, then you have to learn to think and act in new ways the speaker said.

At the age of 42 years, I visited a small music studio in Vienna and created my first song. (Until then I had absolutely nothing to do with making music. I hadn’t even played the flute in school, nor could read notes).

The title made it to a sampler promotion tour in all German-speaking ski huts and to a live performance in front of 800 people in Vienna’s hippest club at this time. Inspired by this personal story the Business Coaching Magazine asked me to contribute a special story for its 10th anniversary.

I got also invited to the international book project “be water my friend“, where I co-wrote an article about making music & digitalization

What field or genre are you into and give a brief description of what your field feels like?
Honestly speaking – I couldn’t fix it – you can read about 50 different genre names today. A bit Vocal Dance/EDM, Soul, Pop, Lounge….often I see the story, pictures/moods first – and then I paint it sound-wise and movie-wise.

I still love the Instrumental-New-Wave-sounds of the 80´s – the positive, the feverish, the vibrant & and I like to build bridges between different worlds & times. I already produced for example a Spanish football song, an English Christmas song with 3 tenors and a German Mallorca party hit.

While taking the liberty of trying many different directions, electronic rock/pop/house, and EDM is maybe likely to become my main focus.

Who or what inspires you or motivates you? And why??
I have a lot of creative energy in me and I see so many figures, combinations and possibilities – in my job as a digital transformation manager but also in music. The possibilities of modern digital tools allow me to act as a songwriter, composer, story writer, music & video producer.

With no major label to back me and with minimal studio equipment, I was able to finally create three Digital Rock Songs in a row in 2019. I produced “SuperHot” with the voice of a workmate from his current IT company, “Freeway” with the voice of a background singer from Opus, and “driving all nights” completely digital.

The songs have already been very well received on various platforms. “Freeway“ has made it onto a Spotify New Release – playlist and has already several thousand streams – especially in the Nordics.

So what inspires me – the possibilities, the small steps of improvement, the people and professionals who initially laughed at what I was doing and of course some great feedback.

What does your current song/album mean to you?
With “Down Down” I tried to create & deliver something better than before – sound-wise & visually. I also tried to build bridges between different genres – between technology and nature, space and the bottom of the ocean.

I love for example Barry White´s voice and I tried to create a coherent groove in this 100% digital production.

What do you do aside from this profession?
I studied engineering and started a professional career in the technical field. I also completed a master`s degree in economics and made a successful career as a manager in the information and technology business.

Between 2000 and 2016 I developed and managed business units for leading companies such as DELL, Fujitsu, Hitachi, and Samsung and travelled in Europe, America and Asia. Today I´m an expert in digital transformation and building up new business models & digital ecosystems with leading corporations – this is my profession.

What are your hobbies?
Actually, there are 5 disciplines for me which are important and help me to build resilience – family, friends, work, music, and humour.

I’m also an avid skipper, I love the sea and playing tennis helps me to keep in shape. With the ability to create & produce complete music- and video projects, I found another wonderful hobby.
