“For as long as I can remember, I have been intrigued by music and its power to affect people. By combining certain elements on the piano, keyboard and synthesizer, and adding percussion, strings, etc., I can express any emotion and visually crate a picture to trigger a memory, not only for myself but for others as well. I sincerely hope that my form of communication touches you within.” — Mars Lasar
On his third solo album, Mars offers a fantasia of “visual” music. Drawing upon his vast experience with the Fairlight synthesizer, Mars has blended his trademark dynamic sounds with subtly mysterious effects and softer rhythms to create a labyrinth for the mind and heart. So appropriately titled, this album offers a true escape into the unfettered realm of the imagination.
