Mark Maclaine is a British educator, director, music producer, founder of Tutorfair[1][2] and writer. He is best known for his work as the bass guitarist and producer for the post trip-hop band Second Person. He was a co-founder of the UK hip-hop record label Dented Records and co-owner of a film company the Silence Corporation.

History[edit]

Maclaine started his career as a bass guitarist in London before eventually moving into music production. He began writing his own music under the name "The Silence". In April 2001, he started Dented Records with two members of a successful UK hip-hop group, Foreign Beggars.

In 2002, Maclaine formed the post trip-hop band Second Person with the singer and pianist Julia Johnson. They completed work on writing the music for the free-skiing trilogy 'Snow's in the House' and released their first album, Chromatography, in October 2004.[3]

They went on to write the music score for British feature film City Rats, which was released in early 2009 and on DVD on 27 April 2009.[4] In 2008, Maclaine produced (under his pseudonym "The Silence") the album Close to Home in New York City with the New Zealand rapper Maitreya. Two of the album's tracks were nominated for the APRA Silver Scroll Award for songwriting in New Zealand.[5] Second Person released two further albums before parting company, after 10 years, in April 2011.[6]

Maclaine spends much of his time tutoring[2] but continues to produce music and videos for other artists. In 2010, he directed the music video "Questions In My Mind" by the Portuguese singer Ana Free in New York City.[7][8] They worked together on two more videos, "Playgrounds and Kisses" and "Electrical Storm", both reaching number 1 in the MTV Portugal charts and filmed in Free's hometown of Lisbon and London respectively.[9] His other work includes directing for the Africa Express project, filming their various guest musicians including Damon Albarn, Paul McCartney and John Paul Jones.[10]

Family[edit]

Maclaine's father was the director Richard MacLaine and his mother is the photographer Tana Maclaine.
