Festival M.A.R.S. (Music & Arts ReSound) was created with the goal of merging contemporary music, arts and science into new forms, and to create, explore, and produce performances by coalescing various disciplines to create a pathway for a better understanding of our current position and future possibilities. With the target of creating platforms for internationally established musicians and artists of all kinds to promote their work and open new perspectives on seeing music through cross-artistic pairings. Music, art, and science should come together to accomplish what one field alone cannot: to convey ideas and inspire changes in mindset, attitudes and behaviors that will lead to a better, more open human understanding on different levels and areas. As science seeks to better our understanding of the world, music and art allow us to express how our rapidly evolving reality acts us as humans, this is the mission of M.A.R.S.: To explore this new vision by combining science and technology with the expression of music and art.
These carefully curated and hand-picked events expand musical imagination by blurring the borders between music and other applied arts. Artists involved will choose a concept and theme that will govern their collaborative process, and foster a wider array of interests for audiences than those of a usual contemporary music festival.
The festival provides the necessary infrastructure for creating and fostering such collaborative platforms, and will do so in all major cities around the globe.
