Markus Mars

Electric Freestyle Violinist

We are poems made of stardust.
 

Markus Mars is the space to earth musical manifestation of an ongoing celestial journey throughout the furthest reaches of the cosmos with terrestrial origins in the volcanic jungles of Hawai’i Island. An interdimensional entity, equipped with a 5-string electric violin, a telescopic didgeridoo, a cajón, a microphone, and a loop station starts live streaming Space to Earth vibes straight into your auditory canals.

His unique style is a well-balanced blend of improvised performance, inspired by elements of his musical career and iconic artists, such as Jean-Luc Ponty, Andrew Bird, Darol Anger, Nigel Kennedy, Mark O'Connor, Johann Sebastian Bach, Steve Reich, Shpongle, Jimi Hendrix, The Beatles, Vassar Clements, and Miles Davis.

BIOGRAPHY

 

Markus Mars is the space to earth musical manifestation of an ongoing celestial journey throughout the furthest reaches of the cosmos with terrestrial origins in the volcanic jungles of Hawai’i Island. An interdimensional entity, equipped with a 5-string electric violin, a telescopic didgeridoo, a subwoofer cajón, a microphone, and a loop station starts live streaming Space to Earth vibes straight into your auditory canals.

He was born and raised in Austria and started having fun with a wide variety of instruments at the age of five: violin, drums, percussion, piano, guitar, didgeridoo, composing and conducting. After being trained in classical music for over 15 years, composing for and touring with several Symphonic Orchestras and Chamber Orchestras, he started playing the drums and electric violin in rock, blues, world and fusion bands. Markus soon discovered his passion for electronic music and started performing and touring internationally with DJs from around the world.

After touring 30 countries with more than 50 bands and playing over 3,000 shows, plant-based food enthusiast Markus moved to Hawai'i in 2015 and created Son of Mars, an electronic music project featuring electric violin and didgeridoo. He released his debut album, Interdimensional, in 2017 under the label Merkaba Music.

After his 2017 Europe tour, he returned to the Island of Hawai’i and started his Space to Earth live streaming project Markus Mars, which is a mostly improvised performance with live looping electric violin, telescopic didgeridoo, subwoofer cajón, and vocal mic featuring elements of his transformational musical journeys, heavily influenced by inspiring artists such as Jean-Luc Ponty, Andrew Bird, Nigel Kennedy, Darol Anger, Mark O'Connor, Johann Sebastian Bach, Steve Reich, Shpongle, Jimi Hendrix, Vassar Clements, and Miles Davis.

The first album, Live at Perfect Harmony, is OUT NOW!
