Yes, what happened? Does anybody know anything?

I have been trying to get some of his music (especially his promotional CDs), but without any luck. And he does have a website (www.markwatters.com) but it hasn't been updated since 2004!

So I couldn't contact him through his website...

IMBD says, that he was still scoring a few films recently.

Anyway, I would love to find out more about him and I would love to have his CDs for the Summer Olympics 1996, Major League Baseball Memorable Moments, True Life Adventures: Dances Of The Caribou, Doug's 1st Movie and The Lionhearts...

The question remains. What happen to Mr. Watters?
Has anybody heard anything from him?

I am still looking for his (promotional) CDs of Summer Olympics 1996, Major League Baseball Memorable Moments, True Life Adventures: Dances Of The Caribou, Doug's 1st Movie and The Lionhearts...

Can anybody help?

I still only remember his Olympic music for the opening back in 96. Something tells me he worked on Tiny Toons too, but I may be mistaken.

Maybe he decided to focus exclusively on concert works?

The IMDB listing is probably your best source of recent credits, if any.....

http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0915053/



I suspect that, as a student, you are a young collector, anxious to have everything.

But I also assume you must know that not everything a composer writes ends up on CD near the time of composition---or even at all!

Perhaps you'll have to wait 5-10, or even 50-70 years---like I have---for some of YOUR favorite composer's pieces to be released.

True. I just found it strange, that he used to have a website and then it was never updated and now it disappeared! I have a few of his released CDs and a animation sampler, and I really like the music. So I would have liked to find out more or anything about what he's up to...

I think he may be otherwise employed:

Just found out he composed the wonderful orchestration on Bluth's The Pebble and the Penguin. Mark also scored All Dogs Go to Heaven 2 which is also excellent. Both are full bodied, and thematic. Talk about an underused talent!

Mark Watters and Richard Stone collaborated on a rousing score to the PBS documentary MEDAL OF HONOR: TRUE STORIES OF AMERICA'S GREATEST WAR HEROES that was released by BSX in 2012.
