Martin Swope (b. June 1, 1955, Ann Arbor, Michigan, US) was the tape manipulator and sound engineer for the Boston-based postpunk band Mission of Burma from 1979–1983, when they split up due to lead vocalist/guitarist Roger Miller's problem with the hearing disorder tinnitus. He joined the mostly instrumental, classical rock group Birdsongs of the Mesozoic on electric guitar in 1981, and left in 1993. He declined to rejoin Mission of Burma when they reformed in 2002, and was replaced by Bob Weston of Shellac.
