Maclaine DiemerComposerFirst Name Maclaine, LLC

Maclaine Diemer is a composer for interactive and traditional media. After graduating from the Berklee College of Music in Boston, he entered the rock and roll rat race, climbing speaker towers and playing to sold out crowds across the US and Canada with several bands before entering the game industry. Now, with 13 years of experience in games, he has worked on some of the highest profile titles across multiple game console generations as well as PC. An insatiably curious musician and multi-instrumentalist, he can work in a wide variety of styles. Whether performing stripped down arrangements of his Guild Wars 2 score with a trio of guitar, bass, and violin at the first Twitchcon, or conducting a full orchestra in Boca del Rio, Mexico, Maclaine lives to carry the torch for game music all over the world. He lives in Los Angeles with his wife and his cat, Mr. Darcy.
