Mark Beazley founded the group Rothko in early 1997, who released albums, singles and ep’s on many labels around the globe before first signing a publishing deal with Mute Song in November 2000 and then an album deal with Too Pure Records in 2001, releasing the album ‘A Continual Search For Origins’.
In 2003, he decided to try and start his own label, Trace Recordings, who’s first release was the critically acclaimed ‘Wish For A World Without Hurt’ his collaboration with Washington DC’s BLK w/BEAR [ aka Jim Adams ]
In 2004, on the back of this first Trace release, Mark was commissioned to write some music for the Discovery Channel documentary ‘The Flight That Fought Back’, which was based on the alleged incidents that took place on United Airlines Flight 93 on September 11 2001. The film was Emmy nominated in the USA and pre-dated the Hollywood version of events, ‘Flight 93’. The documentary also heavily featured Rothko recordings, which were donated to the film free of charge.
Mark has since gone on to write music for the Discovery USA series ‘Most Evil’ [series one and two] the Court TV USA pilot show ‘Mycase.Com’ for Optomen Productions NYC, and most recently the music for ''Mars - Quest For Life, for Discovery USA, about the Phoenix Probe that landed on Mars in May 08 and God Vs Satan for the History Channel in September 08
Since Rothko stopped making music in October 2010, Mark now plays bass in the drone trio Signals, with Chris Gowers and Philip Julian, Rome Pays Off, with Chris Gowers and original Rothko member, Crawford Blair and also in Low Bias, with Graham Dowdall, aka Gagarin.
