about

“The discovery of dead civilisation on Mars, whose end was apparently catastrophic and due to unknown causes [...] requires a vigorous response from the human race, to reduce the probability that we will perish the same way.” - Dr. John Brandenburg, plasma physicist & author of Death on Mars

The follow-up to 2018's "Concert for Malakut" is an imagined documentary score for the future-science of Martian Archaelology. Via longform looped automatic compositions performed on the same 80's polyphonic synthesizer that comprised the work on THICK AIR's debut, the listener is led through a sonic historiography of the rise to peak civilizational harmony, then the decline, fall, and ultimate post-cataclysm calm on the planet that has long captured Earth-human wonder of other, earlier worlds inhabited by beings much like ourselves. As modern science ponders the evidence and ramifications of H-bomb-equivalent nuclear isotopes found amongst the Red Planet's wasteland ecology, "Archeologie de Mars" effortlessly evokes both the awe and devastation of what might have been, and offers a musical component to a line of thinking that may ultimately be either affecting folktale or a new frontier: transposing Earth science methods to planetary bodies beyond our own.
