“When Mark Tipton’s trumpet enters, it’s ensnaring, something you can give yourself over to entirely…” (Sam Pfeifle, Portland Phoenix)

“Tipton, a trumpeter, led his ensemble, Les Sorciers Perdus, in varied accompaniments to [Alan] Brooks’ readings, which had a rhythmic quality that placed the lines of text snugly into the musical texture. The most striking of the four movements, “Aurora,” had trumpet and percussion moves that called to mind Stravinsky’s “L’Histoire du Soldat.” (Allan Kozinn, Portland Press Herald; former music critic and culture writer for the New York Times)

“[Mark’s new Metropolis score is]…not to be missed…one of the great masterpieces of moviemaking, accompanied with the inspired phantasmagoric music of Les Sorciers Perdus…I saw their show at SPACE Gallery last year and it was a complete knockout!” (Dave Wade, WMPG)

“Tipton’s new [silent film] score…feels a little jazzy, a little soulful, but never old.” (Ray Routhier, Portland Press Herald)
