I am not the God of War amongst yourselves

Author: Cédrick Ventura
Country: France
Number of votes: 354
As this is after all a European endeavour, I wanted to leave a message that simultaneously refers to our past, our present condition and our future. Quite obviously, this message remains valid for all the inhabitants of our planet and especially so for the future colonists of the red planet. The reference to Hellenism, the generic religious undertones and the hint at the challenges that we still need to meet (Brexit among others) seem to me an apt synthesis of our hopes and strengths.

Interestellar's Cornfield Chase by Hans Zimmer

Author: Gerard Mendoza Ferrandis
Country: Spain
Number of votes: 289
It's a fragment of the original soundtrack from Interestellar. It is a song that makes me feel calmed and intrigued. I beleive that these are the feelings that Mission Control will feel after the landing Calm as they'll know that the landing was a success, and intrigued to see all the new discoveries that the rover will make.

Baby Tom is laughing

Author: Laurent Hirsch
Country: France
Number of votes: 283
I recorded my son, Tom, while he was laughing. I found it very funny, positive and inspiring :-))) It was in December 2018. Tom was 6 months old. My wife and I adopted Tom when he was 3 months old. He is a very joyful baby, often smiling and laughing :-) Why sending this sound to Mars: => It's positive, fun, quick and easy to understand. => Everyone made such a sound, so we can say it's universal. => In a way, I find that it's a good symbol for mankind.

Exit Empire - First (Call from Mars)

Author: Exit Empire
Country: Czechia
Number of votes: 182
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!

88 notes

Author: Marc Sabat
Country: Canada
Number of votes: 145
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.
