Mark Walk is an American composer, producer, multi-instrumentalist and current member of the bands Skinny Puppy and ohGr. He also composes material for film and television under his name or as a ghostwriter. One such piece was for the opening theme of Kitchen Confidential, a Fox TV show that only lasted several months. Working in the electronic and industrial music genres, Walk became a writer, producer, and studio engineer at a recording studio he built called Pachyderm along with various people, such as Jim Nickel and Eric Anderson, which is located in Minnesota. During this time he also did work for Invisible Records in Chicago.

Early career

Walk began his musical career in a local band featuring John Reeves, Terry Morehouse, Bruce Bushman and Kevin Brandt. At age 15 he also played lead guitar for the band Starwood, which featured the Szmanda Brothers (Mark and Paul), keyboardist Jerry Barker, and drummer Mike Fittante.

1990s to present

Branching out from his work with Invisible and Pachyderm, he spent time in Malibu working with Skinny Puppy on their album The Process. Afterwards he moved to Seattle where his work included writing and producing material with Nivek Ogre for ohGr, and producing and writing albums with Lesley Rankine in a band called Ruby. Also while in Seattle he worked with Tim Skold, Bill Rieflin, and the bands The Petty Tyrants and KMFDM, including additional studio work from Scott Crane and Loki der Quaeler.

Walk resides in Los Angeles, where, in addition to collaborating on albums for both Skinny Puppy and ohGr, he has been writing and producing music for commercials and film.[1]
