Minneapolis-based musician Mark Mallman’s historic event, “Marathon 4: Road Rogue,” is a transcontinental, bio-generated, one-man, non-stop, seven-day, 150-plus hour music performance starting in New York on September 15th and concluding in Los Angeles on September 22nd.

While traveling cross-country from New York to Los Angeles, the “Marathon 4” van will stop in the following cities to meet, greet and welcome guest musicians on board to jam with Mark Mallman:

09/15 New York, NY (w/ guests Dick Valentine of Electric 6, the Hood Internet, MDNR)
09/15 Pittsburgh, PA (w/ guests Weird Paul Petrosky, Dave Bernabo)
09/16 Detroit, MI (stopping at Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit at 4PM w/ guest John Nash of Electric 6)
09/17 Chicago, IL (w/ guests TBA)

09/21 Las Vegas, NV (Pinball Hall of Fame / guests TBA)
09/22 Los Angeles, CA (Santa Monica Pier Parking Lot w/ guests TBA)

“Marathon 4” sees Mallman traveling coast-to-coast in a 1997 GMC Vandura van wired to webcast the proceedings.  He will perform music non-stop, even while sleeping, when he will be creating “biogen music” using an Emotiv EEG controller, a modified Mattel Mindflex, and a modified Polar heart rate monitor via MIDI through Ableton Live and a program made especially for “Marathon 4” called “BioWave”.

What it all means is that Mallman’s brain and body will be creating music without the help of his conscious self. “Marathon 4: Road Rogue” precedes the upcoming release of Mark Mallman’s latest album Double Silhouette, scheduled for October 9th.

Mark Mallman is available for interviews. Contact Josh Bloom at Fanatic for more information.
