After the phenomenal success of his debut album Olympus, Australian composer/keyboardist Mars Lasar brings us 16 bold new songs — over 70 minutes of music — dedicated to hope for a world in crisis. From the soaring “Universe in Time” and “Corroboree” to the poignant “Hold On” and “Children of the World,” to the sensational title track, “The Eleventh Hour,” this is powerful music with a powerful message — there’s still time for change — listen closely.
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.
Remember when you’ve heard music so beautiful that it captured you, lifted you up, opened your heart and mind? Perhaps you were having a massage, doing yoga or just being silent but whatever you were doing, you wanted that music to continue. This is the music of One. Music to keep you there. Over an hour of guitars, tablas, oboe, cello, tamboura, harp, English horn, voice and many other soft sounds woven together with no abrupt changes, the timing set to the gentle rhythm of the ocean.
