Biography

For almost twenty years, Mark Dwane has been an internationally acclaimed composer and musician. Born July 30, 1954 in Cleveland, Ohio, Mark began formal lessons on the guitar at the age of 10. Influenced early on by the music of the era, Mark continued his musical education and gained experience playing with many bands. Able to fluently read and write music, Mark continued to study music theory and composition with a wide variety of instructors. In the 70’s Mark began experimenting with guitar synthesizers, pioneering a unique fusion of electronic artistry and innovative composition . During this time, his band “ORB” performed throughout the northeast Ohio area and recorded an album entitled “Such Power Exists?”. In 1981 Mark decided to pursue a solo career and build his own studio. Teaching guitar for his livelihood with over 50 students a week, Mark now had the creative freedom to produce his music without constraints. Although involved in numerous projects, “The Myth” was his first un-official release from that period. A collection of essentially demo tracks loosely based around an archeological theme. The advent of affordable digital recording technology and a polyphonic MIDI guitar system brought about a paradigm shift for Mark in 1987. Inspired by Richard Hoagland’s book “The Monuments Of Mars”, he created a soundtrack to the enigmatic anomalies of the Cydonia region.
’The Monuments Of Mars - The Music”(1988), was heralded as a definitive statement of his sound and style. Each successive release, “Angels, Aliens & Archetypes” (1991), ‘The Atlantis Factor” (1993), and “Paradigm Shift” (1995), were critically acclaimed and garnered the highest reviews.
