Blue Skies On Mars



 Genre: Ambient

Get Flash to see this player.

This is the 1st song in a series of songs based on a extremely realistic dream I once had about being on Mars with one amazing view.

This song is called "Blue Skies On Mars" based on that dream. Much to my amazement, NASA had posted the picture I chose for the "cover" of the song and the only thing I did to it was add the text.

I did not change the colors of the picture which NASA posted online after a press conference of the latest pictures from Mars. There was this blue sky and no comment from anyone. They just ticked right by it.

When I first did this song, there was a 55 second narration in the middle of the song, but I pulled it off the song as I thought I sounded like e hillbilly on acid while trying to sound British.

This song took about 2 months to complete.


Peace, Always!

Hi DJSK.......
This is a great piece of Ambient music to compliment your Tharsis mix. I heard it all but didn't listen that closely. I let the sounds wash over me. The only observation I made was that towards the ending, with the two different rhythms being (IMHO) at odds with each other. Everything else seemed to fit in with the story.

Take care.

Again, well done
It's not easy to make such a long song and still keep interest. You seem to manage time after time :-) And yes, it does feel a bit strange that Mars should have a blue sky...

Thanks and take care,
