Mark McRae

Lecturer, Theory and Performance

An art school graduate, Mark McRaeʼs career began as a session and performing musician in various major record label projects which included bands, Rub Ultra (Island Records) Honeycrack (Sony Music), Rehab (ZTT/Warner Bros), and Lovefield (Polydor).

During this period McRae found himself working with and learning from some of the most talented producers, mixers, and engineers of our time. These included Gil Norton, Tim Palmer, Adrian Bushby, Trevor Horn, Barry Clempson and Al Clay to name a few. McRae is more recently known for his collaborations with Jerry Marotta, Malcolm Burn, Sophie Rois, Clemens Schönborn, Hans Joern Brandenburg and Tommie Rae Brown.

These experiences were vital in creating the accomplished composer/producer McRae is today. Later, McRaeʼs composition, production and sound design talents were embraced and to this day he has worked with an impressive array of international corporations, companies and theaters that include RAI, BBC, ITV, Ch4, and SkyTV. His music has been recognised in several award wins, nominations, and critical acclaim across TV, radio, and cinema.

McRae was a major contributor as producer and composer to the unique audiovisual arts collective ‘The Light Surgeonsʼ whose live film True Fictions, commissioned by the New York-based Jaffe Fund for Experimental Media and Performing Arts (EMPAC), was performed in New York, Manchester, Milan, Seville, London, Brighton, Belfast, Hong Kong and Poland.
