|0:30:00||Icons Of Echoes: Mark Dwane
One of the legends of indie-space music, Mark Dwane has been a fixture on Echoes since his first album, 1991’s Angels, Aliens and Archetypes. He’s a space musician with an epic sense of melody and orchestral designs, almost all of which are rendered on the strings of his guitars and guitar synthesizer. His expansive, cinematic albums often have mythic and sci-fi themes, like Other Worlds, The Monuments of Mars, and The Atlantis Factor. Mark Dwane was voted number 16 of 20 Icons of Echoes.
