Exit Empire - First (Call from Mars)

Author: Exit Empire
Country: Czechia
Number of votes: 225
Exit Empire created this song to celebrate science and space exploration. It was fascinating to play with the audio and include real sounds of Martian wind or first gravitational wave ever observed. There are also pictures of the landing location on Mars and the recently captured black hole converted to audio. Lyrics 'Light will come' refer to the Czech analyzer with this song on board coming to Mars to study lightning. We also used typical Czech instruments cimbalom and organ. Keep looking up!

La Villanelle

Author: La Cigale Collège La Fontaine
Country: France
Number of votes: 165
La Villanelle is a French melody composed by Berlioz. We are celebrating this year the 150th anniversary of his passing. It is a beautiful homage that La Cigale choir gives to this composer by taking him to the stars. It would certainly have pleased his romantic soul and his taste for the fantastic. The angelic voices of the young singers express the joy of finding the pleasures of spring after winter.

88 notes

Author: Marc Sabat
Country: Canada

A cascade of tones fall from the top note of the piano to the bottom and rise back again, each mirroring the other. This whole tone melody passes once through what might be an endless spiralling 30 second cycle, each note of the piano's 88 sounded once. Two scales, gazing at each other across space and time. On the surface each pattern repeats in different depths of pitch, but their harmonic symmetries are dissolved in perception of the fleeting present moment.

Owen's On Mars, Baby!

Author: Tom Syndercombe
Country: United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland
Number of votes: 141
Around 5 years ago my friends and I asked the question "how hard can electronic music be to make?". So, we decided to start making it. 5 years later and one of us is still recording his friends and turning it into fairly average quality 'music'. This 'song' is the result of me having started making music as a joke. The vocals are courtesy of Owen Evans who was not told how they would be used. To have this played on Mars would truly show just how absurd the world is. Tom Out.

That there is a competition for sending the sound track to Mars is for us an example of character freedom, what gives us passion to join and create. Therefore, we wrote and recorded this song. The lyrics of the song is about reaching out to the researcher, who is just happy that the signal has arrived back to Earth in order. (Johnny24 & Sima21)
