Mark Cooksey (born 18 January 1966 in Skegness, Lincolnshire, England) is a video game musician, best known for his work on the Commodore 64, most notably composing the music for the platform game Ghosts'n Goblins. He was employed by the UK video game developer and publisher Elite Systems.
Since the demise of the Commodore 64, Mark has produced music for the Game Boy (including the Color and the Advance), the PC, the SNES and the PlayStation. His Game Boy Color work includes the music and sound effects for the slightly controversial 2001 Commander Keen game.
Mark has consistently been a supporter of the Commodore 64 remix scene, contributing a great "mock-horror" version of Ghosts and Goblins for the CD "Back in Time 2". An accomplished musician, he was pleased to put his hand to orchestrations of both Ghosts 'n Goblins (which, luckily for us, was not a cover of the arcade machine), and "Storm Warrior" which drew direct inspiration from Bach and was scored as a tale of Russian nobility going to war in Napoleonic times. As you do.
