Album Notes
"Archives is a set of outtakes, alternate mixes and reworked versions from the vaults in Westlake, Ohio. Mark Dwane - the MIDI-guitarist's MIDI-guitarist - composed and performed these pieces from 1984 through 1995. It is a limited edition (500 copies) release. This CD features all the good things that listeners expect from synth guitar ambience - and then some! Mark's very dramatic style grabs listeners right away. There are no subtleties here. This music 'whacks listeners up side the head' like a two by four. It is not a painful experience at all. Deep listeners will feel the drifting effects as they enter a semi-conscious journey. The journey goes to different zones as Mark takes a retrospective and introspective tour of his brilliant career. This is more essential space music from a master of the craft. It has both historical and musical integrity." -- Jim Brenholts / Ambient Visions


"This [is] a superb collection of previously unreleased works and alternate mixes by Dwane. It's a collector's item, limited-edition CD-R, not available in stores. Only 500 have been burned; each being numbered and personally signed by Mark. Dwane has updated, extended, re-worked, and refined the best tracks collected out of his earlier MIDI guitar releases. I enjoyed this CD-R a great deal and it is worth grabbing as a good representative taste of the Dwane soundworld. He does amazing things with a guitar! In fact, you will rarely think a guitar is being used but that Tangerine Dream or Vangelis were all in the mix! I was especially happy when chatting with Dwane, before receiving this release, suggesting he extend certain songs from The Monuments of Mars, when he informed me Archives indeed had already included an extended version of TMoM's 'Eternity.' I wished he'd extended that track to about 10 or 15 minutes but I'll take even five minutes of eternity of the 'Dwane-man'. Recommended head-trip!" -- John W. Patterson

The Man..The Myth..The Concept!
This is one of those New Age CD's that makes you want more of the same caliber the more you listen to it. It's really an essential release you can't be without if you like progressive rock with washing synth sounds with some nice rhytm mixed with really lush MIDI guitar work!

I would say that this release together with Mark's 'The Myth' goes right up there with other artists such as Guido Meyer, F.D.Project & Tangerine Dream, to name a few. And to me this is definetely his best CD, and I have heard them all several times which makes me classified as a huge fan of his work! :-)

Anyway, pick this gem up while it's still for sale, cause one day you will regret that you didn't buy it.

Superb production & timeless melodies. What's to get wrong?
