Mark Zelesky is a musician and librarian from Chicago. While his initial training at Northwestern University focused on concert saxophone, he has since expanded his arsenal to include electric piano, clarinet, oboe, toy piano, recorder, reed organ, synthesizers, and voice. In his music, he explores the intersection of ‘60s and ‘70s avant-garde, contemporary popular and classical music, and jazz. By using his one-man orchestra of vintage keyboards, woodwinds, household objects, and other instruments, he creates a unique soundscape that is at once looking back and exploring new territory. Mark has recently started a blog and YouTube channel as the Pop Minimalist. He is also an active collaborator in the Philadelphia chamber music scene, performing with Beta Test and Murmuration, a group that specializes in improvised classical music, playing saxophones, clarinet, and keyboards.
