Work Overview

The composer was inspired to write this after learning about NASA's 2012 Mars Rover mission. Part 1 Red Dirt reflects the vehicle bumping over boulders on the Martian landscape. Part 2 Red Mysteries symbolizes the many unanswered questions we have about Mars, and captures the stillness and stasis of the landscape. Part 3 Red Children is a playful pondering on a future Mars colony.
