Mark's performance career began at the age of twelve, has distinguished himself in both Western and Eastern Classical Traditions, as well as Avant-Garde and Jazz scenes, with his synergy of perfect technique and expressive ingenuity. Deutsch invented and built the world's first Bazantar, a five string acoustic bass fitted with twenty-nine sympathetic strings and four drone strings, for which he was awarded a U.S. patent. His Bazantar and Sitar performances have garnered critical acclaim at high-profile venues such as the Julliard School of Music, Merkan Concert Hall, Earthdance International, and the Herbst Theatre.
The leader of Ancient Future plays the Glissantar, and is a pioneer of the scalloped fretboard guitar, an instrument combining qualities of the South Indian vina and the steel string guitar. It has a fretboard from which part of the wood has been removed between the frets to reduce friction when bending notes. Montfort studied intensively with vina master K.S. Subramanian in order to apply the note-bending techniques to the guitar. He has studied with the masters of many world music traditions, from sarod master Ali Akbar Khan to gamelan director K.R.T. Wasitodipuro. He has worked with legendary world music figures such as Swapan Chaudhuri and Zakir Hussain.
