It's been many years now but the first time I heard any of Mars' music was on Soundscapes on the cable tv. It was Sapphire Dreams. From the first note I was hooked. Every time I heard it, even when I was asleep I would wake up and listen to it and write the title down and the artist. Well over a period of time I had quite a few of my "notes" written down and finally, months later I took the time on the computer to search Mars out. I HAD to have this cd. So I bought it. Well, i'm a cancer patient and have been for some time now. But his music really touched my soul in a way that nothing else has. And that is a tough statement for me because i'm a person of faith and I would like to think that God stirs my soul more. :) Well, as I would listen to this cd while up at the treatment center, My blood pressure would stay down, and I wouldn't spike the fevers a person gets from time to time while having treatment. The days I didn't remember my cd. The treatment took longer due to blood pressure rising, spiking fevers etc...
So I started to share the cd with the others who was there at the time....... they loved it.
So then I went on to purchase Blue Maze. A little different but great none the less. Same thing. Then from there on I was on a search. As I was searching for more.... the local music store found some of his MindScapes, Moonlight was my first purchase from the group, then followed by Satin Skies etc.... They are absolutely amazing as is ALL his work. There are a few cd's I do not have but pick and choose the ones that really "move" me so to speak.
I also have his "Big Box" cds. Great to work out to. Really. Those are more upbeat etc... then Oh my gosh, the Christmas CDs! How can anyone ever listen to anything else again. LOL
Ok, as for the Moonlight cd. I just couldn't really get people to "understand" how this music can really touch someone's soul...... well, my husband had come down really ill....... could not sleep, was getting worse, medication not really helping and he was getting worse..... as most people know, lack of sleep/rest is one of the main reasons people do NOT improve while ill. Well, I begged my husband to just "try" listening to the Moonlight cd just for a while, while he laid on the couch....... WOW, amazingly enough, he was out like a light........ now when he travels he takes my Moonlight cd with him to help him relax etc... More than once we've struggled with sleeplessness and put the moonlight cd in and only to find ourselves waking up rested the next morning. We set it to replay in the player at night on those nights we fight sleep.
I now have my first grandbaby..... a boy...... he is now 4 months old and the only thing he really hears when he's here is Mars' music. The nights I have him all night, he goes to sleep with Moonlight. During the day it's several varieties of Mars' music.. I was hoping that with the new MindScapes that there might be some pictures with them as well. I'm not complaining by no means. Just love his work.
Well, I hope this isn't too much. In a nutshell, his music is healing, soul-stirring, calming, energizing etc.... he covers it all. I just know that myself and a few others during our treatment wouldn't have done as well as we did if it wasn't for his music. Treatment days can be very long and his music helped us get out a bit sooner I believe.
Thanks for listening.
HUGS to all of you

Dear Mars Lasar,
I've been a fan of your fantastic music for 15 years since The Eleventh Hour. I bought this CD in London when I was studying my MSc programme in UK. I was attracted by the imaginary cover at first and after listening I was totally drown into the soaring melodies and intensely textural audio landscapes. It was a perfect example of new age music. I've kept listening to your works and I'm so glad to see another new album of the 11th hour series has been released. I listened to the samples from your website and the music is as amazing as the debut 11th hour! I'd like to buy the album but as I'm working in China now and the CD was not sold in Chinese market yet. How can I purchase through your website and how much is the shipping fee to China mainland? Thank you so much.
I also hope your albums would be sold in China soon and let more people know about your music. As I know, there are a large population of music lovers of new age music in China and this is a huge potential market, I believe so.
Wish luck and looking forward to more enchanting music from Mars :)

Subject: The Eleventh Hour
Sometimes it's hard to say whether a work of art moves you for it's intrinsic value, or if it affects you deeply because of the events in your life that have brought you to a point where you can be receptive to it. When The Eleventh Hour came to my attention in 1993, I was nearing a crossroads in my life. The undercurrents of change were just beginning to push me towards the brink of a new phase in life. I'll always look back on the album in that way, a harbinger of my own personal change.

I cannot find a more " Hippy " way to say this but I'm so in tune with your music I haven't heard all the albums yet but... I own a few and one's The Eleventh Hour and its completely amazing, your music is pure brillance, I wish i could somehow help spread your music to the world because some people dont know that music can really play an important role in stress relief and with that an overall better life, I started writing this message saying I wasn't gonna type much but your music has been around me since I was young, I'm 18 now and I expose your music every chance I get... when I had a car your CD never left the disc changer, and when anyone listened, couldn't as hard as they try, couldn't fight the intensity. I would love to see your work in person.. Come on I'm literally I'm beggin ya lol just kidding but times are rough on me and that would be a great gift to a Big fan....All the way from Atlantic City.

Subject: You Are The Master of New Age Music
I was in Massachusetts one weekend serving in the Reserves, went to the mall and started looking through the New Age section of the music store I was in and came across your album The Eleventh Hour. Having never heard any of your music prior to that visit, I thought, “the art work on the album cover looked pretty nice, I think I will give it a try”. As soon as I put the disc into the player of my car, I was forever hooked. I had never heard New Age music played the way you do it. I had goosebumps going up and down my arms listening to this album. I think I left in my player for perhaps 2 months before finally pulling it out. I played this disc so much that I wore out the middle part of the disc and it started skipping. I recently purchased a new copy of The Eleventh Hour and immediately saved it on my Windows Media Player for future storage on an IPOD. Your music is so incredible to listen to. It wasn’t long after that I bought Escape and Olympus. Then I learned you made some follow-up albums to The Eleventh Hour that I desperately need to get. I have only heard samples of 11.02, but playing “Cyber City” reminded of “Cellular City”. I LOVE IT! Until I got the link to your website, I did not realize how many albums you have done since The Eleventh Hour. I have been sampling them all and find them to be absolutely incredible to listen to and can’t wait to have your entire collection. I have a LOT of catching up to do. You are, the MASTER OF NEW AGE MUSIC, hands down. I love having discovered this genre of music back in the 80’s. It’s so surreal. There is so much enjoyment in listening to New Age, and no one who is a true fan of this genre should not go without adding the music of Mars Lasar to their collection. It’s like no Rock and Roll collection will ever be complete without having Led Zeppelin. As far as I am concerned, you have most deservingly earned that honor for New Age music.

The first album I bought of yours was The Eleventh Hour, right after it had been released, and immediatly reckognized it as something groundbreaking & different. Your ability to capture so much emotion & surrealism captivated me two minutes into the first track. I have so enjoyed your music every since. Another thing I appreciate is the sound is so crisp and diverse, I can always look forward to a fresh perpective with each melody, &/or album. Many of your tracks evoke visions of the greatest treasures in life; hope, reverence, peace, romance, tranquility, and not to forget,...fun. Thanks Mars, for helping the day go by a little better. Take your time on your endeavours Mars. You will be remembered well.

Keep up the good work! I plan on buying more in the near future.

Subject: Olympic National Park Album
Just want to say I really enjoy the album Olympic National Park, I am able to relate to this album very closely. I was raised on the Olympic Peninsula and spent alot of time hiking and fishing in the Olympic National park in my youth. The track on Elwha River brings old memories to me, I remember back in time I used to be standing there on the banks of the Elwha and fishing for salmon and steelhead just off highway 101 and watching the now deplete 5 year salmon returning to spawn. It was amazing to see how big those salmon were and the power they had. This album makes me homesick for the Great Pacific Northwest. Thank you for restoring those fond memories of my 35 years of living in the Great Pacific Northwest. I now live in Northeast Texas
Subject: inseparable universe
when i first heard Inseparable Universe, i was immediately transported decades back in time to a rainy night in 1971 when i was stationed in udorn , thailand. i was deeply in love with a beautiful thai girl and we had went out after the rains had quit to go to a favorite restaurant for a late meal. we were riding in a samlar (a thai pedicab/ a tricycle taxi) through the chinese section of udorn when i heard the beautiful, ethereal, disembodied voice of a young woman singing to the accompaniment of a high pitched string instrument. we were on a bridge over a klong (canal) lined with houses that had balconies facing the water. i called the driver to a halt and my girl, the driver and i sat there quietly and listened to the song. it seemed to float on the mist rising from the river and strangely, the wind in the trees seemed an intentional accompanist . her voice quavered in the oriental manner, but it was so rich and beautiful. she seemed to be far away , down the klong , lost in the dark. the song faded and rose and faded away altogether. we sat there for a long while without speaking, just listening to the wind in the trees and feeling the cool mist on our faces. almost sadly, the drive mounted his seat, and looking over his shoulder to us said, "suay...... suay mak." (beautiful, very beautiful). my girl had her head on my shoulder and was holding my hands . i put my arm around her and we went on to the restaurant. hearing that song, that night, was one of the singularly most beautiful moments of my life. i had lost that moment to the dark mists of time and i thank you for bringing it back to me again. the voice in inseparable universe so resembled what i heard that night that it is uncanny. bless you for that song. i thank you from the bottom of my heart.

I've been a fan since I first heard Olympus album back in 1992.

Subject: MARS LASAR A LA CARTE'
In my opinion Yosemite Valley Of The Giants is the best album Mars Lasar has released. Just listen to track 4 Tioga Road or even better track 11 Valley of the Giants - this to me sounds a lot of Vangelises "Heaven and Hell" with the beautiful vocals. But I think the entire album is beautiful crafted, of course only in my opinion. And make no mistake, you must like this type of music to appreciate it. This is truly the "Valley of the Giants"

A couple of years ago, I used to listen to an easy listening station (ez88 – Maynardville TN – now they only play standards). They played a song that captivated me every time I heard it. I called the station and learned it was The Blessing on your Escape CD. I tried for 6 months to get it and it was “always on backorder.” I finally found it at Amazon.com along with Fields of Gold. I made a copy for my daughters and my brother-in-law. We love your music and wish there were stations that would play more of your music. How can we help that to happen?
Please continue to produce beautiful music. You are so appreciated.

Subject: Inseparable Universe
About a year and a half ago my girlfriend and I, who had been together about three years, were having severe difficulty in our relationship. Things had truly come to a crisis. It felt as though all hope was lost, and I was very deeply hurt at the prospect of losing her, and her me. I often fall asleep with my satellite radio on in the background. On August 27, 2005 at about 3 am I was inexplicably and gradually awakened. My subconscious mind was overwhelmed by the soft and loving tones which filled me with an openness and sense of yearning without conditions. My heart was consumed with a true reality and depth of my love for this woman, and the desire to transcend any and all limitations between us so that we might truly become one together, unfettered by the absurd inconsequentials that life often brings into our world to confuse and limit us all. As I fully awakened, I became aware of the lovely harmonies and the mystically direct theme that was caressing my ears. I also became exaltently overcome with emotion and began weeping in my pillow. I finally opened my eyes to view the scan on my radio. I wanted to see what this music was and who had performed such beautiful sounds. It read "INSEPARABLE UNIVERSE" from KARMA by Mars Lasar. It was at this moment I fully realized that she and I indeed were part of an inseparable universe, and I vowed to myself to do all possible in a loving and positive productive way to show her my true commitment to working things out between us. Soon after, we sought counselling, and much has gone on since, most of it a test to our togetherness, from illness to deaths, and even court trials. Amazingly, a year later, despite all our challenges, the Universe did finally open up to us in the most positive of ways on every score. We are now very happily married. Fittingly, "INSEPARABLE UNIVERSE" was played at our wedding. Thank you deeply, Mars, for reaching into my soul to help me see at a very tough time what really matters in life - unconditional love. This my wife and I have for each other, and it is sublime. Your music changed my life!

Subject: Christmas from Mars
Now, I know you've probably had your share of pats on the back for music you've created over the years and may or may not be receptive or even interested in that. However, we cannot allow this letter to pass by without stating how beautiful it is. In fact, Christmas from Mars could very well be the most beautiful Christmas album we've ever heard. Given that I have a huge passion for music (and is a mystery why I never learned to play), then you can be sure that I don't give that assessment lightly. There is something deeply moving about the way you've constructed this album. You've managed to take the traditional Christmas melodies that we all know and love and morph it into something truly special. That takes great talent because more often that not, it's merely a repeat of the same old. Not in this case. This album is a tapestry and since we've had it on all day long here (on a sound system that warrants it), it was easy to fall in love with it straight out of the gate. Major kudos go out to you.
Christmas is a special season for many people. And, that certainly rings true around this house. We've had our decorations out since November 14. Anyway, since this season means so much to my family because we're a bunch of kids at heart, then this new album from you will be something that I can assure will be well played. Again, sincerely,
thank you very much indeed.
Subject: Veteran in New Age music
Mars Lasar is one of the veterans in the whole New Age music history. I was nicely surprised, when I saw Mars, here in this music portal. I can speak a lot about his creation, but I will set landmarks to his recent releases. For those who doesn't understand what I am talking about I recommend to get in touch with Mar's music right the way. Top notch atmospheric textures, with marvelous piano chords, great orchestration which was too innovative in the early years of New Age music - "Escape" (album'95), ethnic approaches mainly met in his album "Karma" and smooth beats. Although my favourite one is "Panorama 11.04". Great stuff and would like more to come in near future. The only thing I want to know is when will be the next release of Mars Lasar. Extremely recommend to all fans of this genre.

I am from the US and have been enjoying your music since I first heard "The 11th Hour" CD back in 1994. It has been a pleasure to listen to your music and hear the changes, or should I say, ranges of styles that you have used over the years. I am particularly fond of a track entitled "FINAL ODYSSEY" from 11:02. It sticks with me for a while when I listen to it. It creates an ambiance of a soothing transition from this world to the next. Yes, as morbid as it sounds, I would like to have this track played at my funeral. Anyway, that track along with several others within the Yosemite-Valley of the Giants CD, are very compelling and beautiful. How do you do it? What motivates your thinking in putting together an album like this and then turn around and do another 11th Hour series CD or the awesome Big Box CDs? You have a great talent in many different styles of music and I am thankful for artists like yourself.
Thank you for your time and I hope to hear from you soon. Keep the wonderful music coming. I am running out of CDs to buy!!!

Subject: YOSEMITE..BEST ALBUM
I collected eleven Mars Lasar albums over the last three years and could not pick a favorite album among the ten hours of diverse and innovative music. Having listened daily to Yosemite, Valley of the Giants for the last month, I suddenly realized that this is my favorite Mars Lasar album and the best CD that I purchased this year. Mirror Lake and Glacier Point are pure joy and the other songs are close to perfection. Mars Lasar is a landscape musician whose music conjures mental pictures of scenic views, like Sibelius' Finlandia and Smetana's Moldau. While I enjoy the songs with drum rhythms, the romantic, sentimental melodies like the Amy Lullabies and Royal Lake are inspirational and wonderful. PS, I put away all my classical CDs three years ago, entered the 21st century, and now listen to New Age and World music.

Hello Mars, I am Anthony, I live in fremont, california and was having a very awesome dream the other night. I was dreaming that I was in a large room, the size of a gym, but it was decorated like a room. There were about twenty four individuals in there, and when the master of the room flicked on the switch we had the ability to float and we were able to float around the room. The minute the master turned off the switch we were condemned to the floor. I woke up and because I always fall asleep to music choice on my t.v. when I woke up your song Rapture was playing. WOW it was a song that was my dream in music format, I got chills listening to the magical sound of that womans Angelic voice as it went up and down. I do Professional Acting, Modern Art, and Poetry.
I feel that your music can help compose the shapes of my modern art, Especially the 11.04 music. I would love to create some pieces together if you ever would grace me with your presence. Now I feel I need to collect all your music and tell everyone about your gifts.

Every time you have a new idea in your studio, I will look forward to hearing it.

Hi Mars! Looking back, I realize my neck injury is a blessing in disguise. It started me on the path for which I am intended. And I thank heaven for the angels that guide me to the musicians who have inspired me along this path. In a way they are like angels too. It is their music that soothes my soul and encourages creativity from within. Allowing me to fully express my inner being through music, fiber art and photography. I am now able to live life with more joy, love, and inner peace for which I am humbly grateful to the source of all creation. Before continuing on my journey, I would like to leave you with one last thought. I hope you are blessed with the company of angels as I am. "Angels are the light that illuminates our soul' divinity" - Kathryn Schein
Olympic National Park is one of my favorites!, the building at work has this incredible lobby 3 stories high, 40s yard across; semi-circular shape (all glass on one side) overlooking an 85,000-gal coy fishpond. It conjures up images while listening to your music!
Pans Panoramic Dimensions. Lasar's greatest in many years!
September 30, 2005
Although the original Eleventh Hour is without a doubt my favorite release of his to this very day and always will be, I cannot deny how supervised I was at how great his most recent release 11:04: Panorama really is. I could arguably say that this is second behind the original outing of this series and is even better than the excellent 11.02 from six years before. Unfortunately as of writing this review, I totally blinked and have missed the third one entitled When Worlds Collide as of writing this review. Anyhow back to "Panorama", the music on here is stunningly beautiful yet also powerful and while it has the spirit of the 1993 original, "Panorama" has a totally different sound altogether yet has the magic that turned me to Lasar's music from that point and will to my last days on earth and maybe beyond.
The title track is my favorite song on this entire album with a beautiful wavy electronic melody that reverberates between the left and right ears and a beautiful mix of flutes, African voices, and a beautiful trumpet. I don't know how Mars did it but "Panorama" the song is without a doubt the greatest song that he has composed in so many years and would easily stand shoulder to shoulder with anything on the original Eleventh Hour. The part of the song towards the latter half with the walkie-talkie voice saying "we're under oath" during selected holidays as well as saying that "Enron could become code" has forever struck a chord with me and I would say that even without lyrics, this song is one of the best socially-conscious tracks that I've ever listened too. Fabulous job Mars!

I have the "seeking serenity" CD and my favorite tracks are Inseparable Universe, Enchanted & Seventh Journey which I see is off your album Karma. I play the seeking serenity" CD all day long when I am at the office. I also play it while doing massage and a few other services that I provide. It's a great compilation to relax and trance out to.
I just wanted to say how much I love your tracks and soon I'll get the full Karma CD to hear the rest.

How skeptical I was when I put the new disc from Mars Lasar into the CD-player. No more Christmas-songs .. I thought ... not again? Holy Night?... I've listened to it a thousand times before. But what a surprise: each song revealed to be a masterpiece of subtle jazz-pop-music like Mars' incredible project, Hush - Blue Maze. Far away from trash and silly mainstream, but very exciting and sophisticated. All the originals are transformed by Mars into his own style of catchy melodies. The listener will suspect the traditional songs only for short moments. The rest is Mars Lasar's typical handwriting of completed music in higher spheres with rich warm textures of harmonies, fulfilling every dream of perfect music. Excellent producing, a feast for the ears.

Subject: Celebrating "Eleventh Hour's" 10th year of existence
Dear Mars Lasar
It's been quite a while since I last sent you an e-mail so I'll reintroduce myself. My name is Michael Carr. I'm from Chicago, Illinois, USA and I wanted to tell you about my experience with the ultimate New Age album that is entitled "The Eleventh Hour". Quite clearly, it's not hard at all for me to come up with the answer to which is the best New Age album ever made. For me, it's "The Eleventh Hour". It's not just a great album but it actually defined and altered a period in my childhood back in 1993 when it was released. I was just ten years old and barely diving into New Age music at the time but felt like it was just mushy meditation music but when I happen to hear "Cellular City" and then "In The Den" and I was hooked to "The Eleventh Hour" for life and my views on New Age changed forever. I now think of this genre as intense and awesome, perhaps even 'cool'. I love New Age that is intense and unsettling in atmosphere. I can still remember when my imagination ran wild and sometimes even crying from the depth of "In The Den" and "Children Of The World" and other songs from the CD back around that time and even remember the sheer bliss I felt when I happen to listen to it on a portable CD player when at a Botanical Garden near Chicago a few years ago. Those wonderful images of what the Eleventh Hour implanted in my mind absolutely run crystal clear today. I just wanted to write this to tell you that "The Eleventh Hour" is by far the best New Age album that has ever been made and that it altered a period in my life. I have a condition called Asperger's Syndrome, a very mild form of autism where I was completely withdrawn in my own fantasy world for the first eight or nine years of my life and although it took some time, I credit "Eleventh Hour" for bringing me out to the real world and now today, the album is a part of my life and always be. Every song on the CD is beyond words and EH has lost none of its meaning at all and still holds up to this very day. Today, with all of the horrible political garbage that has been ruining this country (The USA), "The Eleventh Hour" I feel, is an essential need. Like it's theme (From what I'm guessing) is about the world being in jeopardy from the wasteful lifestyles of modern civilization, the album has a much more earth-shaking power right now because of all the wars and political crimes that the USA has unlawfully unleashed against the world and causing chaos all over the world. "Eleventh Hour"'s theme absolutely rings true to this day and even more so now with the dangerous times that we all are facing at the moment and I think that more people should take this album into attention, not only for its absolute beauty and enjoyability but for its powerful messages and intelligence. I would say the same for "11:02" and "Karma". Speaking of "Karma", this might sound kind of odd but while "11:02" was intended to be the follower to 11th Hour, I actually think that "Karma" is the closest cousin to "11 Hour" and that album, as well as 1102, also defined a period in my life. When I listened to "Karma", I felt that it had just the right kind of odd, and sometimes even ominous melodies that I felt could easily have fit on "11h Hour" especially "Sacrifice" and "Tara". All in all, all three of these albums I mentioned are the best New Age albums that have ever been put into existence and I feel appalled at the lack of attention that they seem to get nowadays (They're hard to find and go out of stock often on Amazon.com and even in CD stores) and I feel that they need more attention today. I in no way am trying to necessarily promote your music nor trying to sound like an advertiser but I just wanted to voice my opinion on how your albums "11 Hour", "11:02", and "Karma" have played a role in my life over the years as they brought me out to the world yet also provided a temporary escape from the stress of the dangers that the world is facing with all these wars and their aftereffects. I also have been repulsed by the trends in music these past few years and instead turned back to "Eleventh Hour". I'd prefer the dark severe thunderstorm sonics of "City Jungle" and the nighttime eeriness of "Hold On" over the sunniness of current-day rap music. I look forward to the next life-altering platter of music on your next album whenever it comes out as your music is absolutely intelligent and of top quality. I in no way am asking to try to surpass "The Eleventh Hour" as it's not even necessary to surpass it to create a life-changing work of art as that album established such dizzying heights of brilliance that I think would be nearly impossible to top but you never know. "Karma" came close to doing that. Anyhow, I'm gonna let you go for now. Whenever time allows it, I would be happy to get a reply whenever possible. I just wanted to write this message to celebrate "11th Hour's" 10th year of existence and how it has meant so much for me over the years since then.
BTW, Forgive me if I make embarrassing typos on my message, I make quite a few of them.

Subject: Re: 11.22 Arrival - New release from Mars Lasar
I just wanted to let you know that I finally received my cd's and I have been in heaven...It's no mystery why I was "bitching for the cd's to arrive. (sorry my quotations will not work correctly') But listening to 11:03 was an auditory experience that I cannot explain. You are truly gifted. Several years ago I had an out of body experience that occurred during some back surgery...I did not have the typical bright light at the end of the tunnel type of thing. It was entirely different, with seeing my deceased father holding my hand but his eyes kept changing to the eyes of others that I knew and others I did not know. There was this beautiful 'heavenly' music playing that I did not realize until years later that came back to me every time I tried to "re-experience" the pleasantry that I realized I had not picked up before. I used to listen to Hearts of Space on NPR with space-age and cosmusic it was similar but not exact. When I heard your strains I realized that this is the form of ethereal and indescribable strains that floated in the background. I truly believe that Mars "taps" his energy that "flows" from the universe and is one of the few individuals that are able to capture and create the energy that flows freely like a gossamer ribbon that knows no bounds. He brings it into our dense earthly senses and makes it into an auditory nirvana.
I love the introductory heavy beat that lays the foundation for many songs, but then he has this "gift" of being able to fill this heavy beat with pure beauty of melodies that are the antithesis of the bead, regardless if it is Jazz, electronica or Techno...pure genius... It truly is ineffable. Once again, thank you for instilling another chapter of the 11th hour auditory series...

When my brother introduced me to your music I was listening to Mozart and Progressive Rock. You truly opened another page in my book of life. I tell people they have been depriving themselves when they have not heard any of your music. Then there are those who say your music is just ok. They don't understand. And may not ever. That's too bad. For they lack the 6th sense. We are all born with 5 senses. Just the selective are born with the 6th sense for music. I think you are the Mozart of our time. Your writing is creative and masterful. You give the ear so much to listen to without leaving the listener bored. I have been composing on my Kerzweil and Korg for over 10 years now. Mainly melodic slow instrumentals. I have a lot of your music. One of my favorites is Hisham's Somewhere In A Dream. That CD is all you. It could not have been any better. It was like you told Hisham to step aside and let me do all the work. His other CD's don't compare. Jeff Burak. Awesome! You should give a listen to Brian Becvar's "Once In A Life Time" Good stuff. When other people turn me on to other artists I usually tell them it's lacking or missing something. It's not MARS. You succeed them all.
Thank you Mars Lasar.
You have been inspiring me, my friends, and clients because your euphoric, and sensually delicious music massages our soals ever-so deeply and satisfyingly.

And someday earn the right to collaborate in the production of music with you. Thanks to your music as first choice among my clients and friends. One of my criteria for selecting music for my massages is: I must be able to play it at relatively high volumes and it still contributes to my and my friends and clients peace of mind.

As I mentioned in my original email, my "collection" of your cd's were destroyed (on purpose) after a divorce and I am eager to enjoy once again the previous ones I had ,as well as acquaint my mind with your new work. Recently I just purchased Karma and Panorama and (as always) am pleased. Your music is unlike any other I have known. There is a string of "energy" that flows consistently through every song and every piece of work by you, whether it be electronica, haunting or lullaby. Your music evokes "emotion". I hope you won't mind the self plagiarization that I have taken as my "own" morning aspiration to the universe....as I ask for "Strength in my balance and balance in my strength" (Eleventh Hour). Please keep up the "suspense" as your listeners eagerly anticipate each new release of the 11th hour series...Believe me it never gets "Old" each piece compliments and you can find the subtle "relations" to previous works, yet diverges into it's own. It's good for our hearts, our minds, our souls....It's Aura Hygiene so to speak.... I would love to hear your creation (as I would not trust anyone else's talent ) to successfully "interpret" each sign of the zodiac into it's own distinctive piece that would evoke the true sense and identify of the Scorpion....the Ram...or theGoat...(me!) etc, etc.Thank you for all the wonderfully strange but pleasurable listening hours of music. I never tire of hearing it. You will always remain my favoritemusician. I absolutely mean that. You have truly been blessed with a talent that has enriched the lives of others, hopefully as much as yourself. Sincerely, Matty USA - 15 Sep 2005

Sometimes you just have to explain your feelings! When I listen to mars lasars music it stirs up deep feelings of joy..I"ve been a fan for a long time. Since the beginning with Olympus, then too The Eleventh Hour-which totally changed my life! I myself wanted too play the kind of music Mars was making. So I went out and spent Thousands of $ on music equipment,, After a few years and many songs I made -I realized just how much talent it really takes to make great music. I couldn't even come close too making anything even close too what Mars is making... So I decided too sell all my Music Hard-Ware and Soft-Ware, and go back too listening too wonderful music which Mars Lasar makes for all of us too enjoy. I built a Music room separate from my house , I bought two Auto-graphed copies from Mars which hang on my wall! And as I listen carefully too his music and gaze upon the Auto-graphed copies he signed for me I can't help but too have a great Big smile on my face, and Thank-You Mars for enriching my life with wonderful music!!And always look forward too your next composition which I look forward to Whole Heartedly.Best Regards Jimmy JVT...USA - Sun, 11 Sep 2005

Ethereal and Captivating,It is rare to find myself captivated by a CD...I am a woman not easily impressed. When it does happen, when the music magically transports me to another plane, the experience is one of pure joy. Such was my reaction to The Music of Olympic National Park. This is one of those CD's that captures your full attention...you find yourself closing your eyes as you are cocooned within the music. My favorite tracks are Eagle Flight, Shi Beach Romance, Toleak Point and Sacred Land. Eagle Flight whisks you away to the heavens, to soar high above the clouds...I love the sound of the screaming eagle that is woven throughout this piece. Shi Beach Romance whispers of sand dunes, gulls and the gentle lapping of waves against bare feet. Toleak Point took me atop the hill overlooking the water, where I stood in breathless awe of the ethereal beauty of God's creation....this is definitely my favorite track. Sacred Land conjures up images of ancient warriors, dancing their primitive dance beneath the moon-kissed forest. Impressive, yes....and so much more.I picked up "The Eleventh Hour" on spec, as they say, based solely on your cool-sounding name. It turned out to be a happy purchase. I soon looked into your backlog. Recently, I have fallen behind in collecting your CDs. Finding this website will help me fill in the blanks, as the last one I purchased (or even knew about, really) was 11:02.
Thanks for the great music!

Hey there! Just wanted to say your album 11:02 was awesome! I'm not usually the kind of person to admit to listening to New Age... but this is definitely the exception! I love "No Secrets", "Free Fall", "Cyber City", "Your Eyes (Password)", "Deja Vu", "House of Thieves", "The Magician", and (of course) "Toxic Orchestra" most especially. Haven't heard much of the other tracks, 'cause I've been listening to my favorites for now... but it's good stuff. Think I'll check out 11:04 sometime, and of course the original 11th Hour, too.

In the early 90's I bought the album "the eleventh hour" at a "brain and mind symposium" in LA, and absolutely loved it. I used it for background music in the bus while driving passengers through the usa as a tour guide. They loved it too. I then bought "olympic national park" and kept looking for more music like the 1st album I bought but never found it until now more then 10 years later. I will buy "11.02,11.03,11.04" and look forward to be amazed again.As a musician myself I can say that Mars Lasar's music is "Excellent". Thank you for inspiring me!

Panorama 11.04 - Absolutely stunning!, November 2, 2004
After six long years after the 1998 album 11:02, we finally are treated to the newest entry in the Eleventh Hour series entitled "Panorama" and let me say that this is an absolutely wonderful album. While it is part of the series that was set in 1993 with "The Eleventh Hour" this album at the same time has it's own style that sets it apart and it is a wonderful album.My favorite songs are "Fortune Teller", the title track, "The Only Answer" and "Set on Freedom". A remarkable return for a New Age Legend and this album proves that he is still a pioneer in the New Age field. Distant Voyageur "Nicholas Computer" I recently purchased Nocturnal Diaries and I just wanted to let you know that I think it is your best album ever!

There are hundreds of Christmas albums available in several genres and styles. The originals are, of course, the orchestral and classical versions. Many of them are the quintessential versions of these timeless wonders. There are also hundreds of rock, jazz and adult contemporary versions of Christmas carols. Most of them are weak, even poor and certainly boring. Even some of the originals written for rock or jazz ensemble are inadequate. The new age is a perfect fit for Christmas music ? electronic, acoustic and/or a combination of both styles. A Christmas from Mars is one of the latter and an instant classic! It is available only from Mars Lasar at his web site - www.marslasar.com. He combines his multi-instrumental charm with atmospheric synths to generate sweet and serene soundscapes with deep spirituality and grace. The strength of the disc is Mars? sound design. He gives a unique voice to each piece. all the best and God bless!

Dear Mars Lasar, I just got your "Panorama" album today and just heading in the door after buying it at a CD store today, I have to say that it's an absolutely wonderful and powerful album that while it's definitely a new chapter in your legendary 11th Hour series, the album at the same time has it's own style that sets it apart from it's two 11th Hour predecessors. The original 1993 "Eleventh Hour" altered my world forever with it's sheer power and unrivalled originality. Even though it's more than a decade old, the album doesn't sound the slightest bit dated even by a long shot. The sequel "11.02" was a wonderful sequel to that classic and had a more spacey, oriented sound but your third album "Panorama" is a wonderful continuation of the series but yet having a nearly different sound altogether. "The Only Answer" almost made me cry as the combination of beautiful music and the amazing lyrics ring so true today. As the presidential elections near and seeing how much is at stake, "The Only Answer" almost made me cry but it's such a wonderful song and one of your best in years, almost rivaling a lot of the songs on "The Eleventh Hour". The title track is another incredible beauty with haunting flutes, a sunset mood, and beautiful male voices in the background. "Fortune Teller" however is one of my favorites with it's bizarre beginning with the ticking watch effects, spooky keyboards and odd chord changes before becoming an intense track. BTW, as I write this message right now, I see three other new releases of yours that I have yet to get: "Nocturnal Diaries", "Collaborations" and "Final Frontier". The samples I've heard The samples I've heard are wonderful especially on "Nocturnal Diaries" that I wanted to ask when these three other new releases will be released to retail stores? I really love the Nocturnal Diaries samples that I'm really eager to buy and thus I want to ask that if it won't be released to retail stores for a long time yet, I would like to know where I can send money to in order to buy it. I really am eager to acquire a copy of Nocturnal Diaries. Your music is among the best New Age music that I've ever heard to the point that I would actually like to make music of my own. Whenever you get a chance, e-mail me when time allows it.

Hey Mars! Great talent that God has given you! I'm originally from Brazil, South America and am influenced by your playing and I hope to play with you one day, when are you coming to the US? Musically, -GARY-

Having only just found Mars Lasr I thought I would start with his first solo album Olympus. If you have not already got it, then I suggest you get it straight away. Starting with a fantastic opening track it gets better and better as the tracks go on. A truly spectacular CD with emotion and if you close your eyes you can let your imagination take over. A truly great start to what I hope will become a great collection. Many thanks to you for some outstanding music.

Mars, I'm quite intrigued. While painting a commissioned Goddess Portrait the other day, I put "Children of the New Age" on repeat (having recently received the cd from a friend) and let it inspire and take me into that wonderful creative space. Thank you for sharing your gifts and letting your abundant creative energy flow.

Hi Mars, I have been listening to your CD's for about eight years now. I first bought the Olympus cassette and nearly wore it out after two years. I have since obtained all your CD's (except for Christmas and Baby series). Although I am more typically a classical listener, I truly appreciate the quality of your music. Karma has been particularly outstanding. In college I studied for all my exams to your amazing compositions. I graduated cum laude! I am looking forward to your new work. I thank you for all the enrichment your music has brought to my life, Jeremy

Just wanted to compliment you on your music and your site, both of which are magnificent! For the longest time, I never knew who "Cathedral Waltz" was by, as it came on the radio one evening and the DJ never announced the title. Years later I happened to buy The Eleventh Hour and, well, you can imagine my delighted reaction when "Waltz" played. ;) In any case, take care, and best of luck with future projects. :)Jesse
Dear Mars In 1992, my brother played the track VICTORY for me from your OLYMPUS CD. From that moment I have been completely hooked on your music. I took a Sound Engineering course at Truro College a few years ago. One of our assignments was to produce a handout on a musician of our choice which would then be used to give a presentation to the rest of the students in the group. Now, who do you suppose I chose to base my presentation on, Yes, it was Englebert Humperdink! No, just kidding, and no disrespect to Mr Humperdink intended. It was of course yourself. I read out what I had prepared on the handout - a full A4 sheet which gave details of your work with well known artists such as Seal and your compositions for the Olympic Games etc. I then played WHISPERS OF ETERNITY from your BLUE MAZE CD. It went down extremely well, the majority of my fellow students (of which there were about fifteen) telling me later that they really liked the track. So you see, I'm doing my best to spread the word :~) My favorite CD of yours has to be ESCAPE but all of them are superb. Of your 4 recent releases (COLLABORATIONS, FINAL FRONTIER, NOCTURNAL DIARIES & 11.04-PANORAMA) I think I like 11.04 the most, but again the other 3 are superb too. Anyway, I'm very much looking forward to the next Mars Lasar CD, on which I hope you're working very hard :~) I send regards to you and your family, (and pets) and would like to thank you for your great music which enriches my life. Lee. Truro, England.

It is a great pleasure to received a letter from you. Since I bought album Escape, I notice how your music is relaxing. Ever piece is unique. Somebody said that the music describes a soul of composer. I think you can agree with that. I wish you very best.

Hello mars, that is an honor for me to receive an answer from you directly. since the eleventh hour i am an absolutely fan of your music. for me it is soul music because it touches my heart, and longings. music is the best way to express your feelings and wishes without any restrictions. on my last vacation in LA i bought karma and i was very disappointed that the section of new age in the US really has disappeared. - it is a shaause it is my favorite sound. but thank goodness, your homepage is a perfect way to get all your wonderful music and i am looking forward to getting the latest news from you my favorite album from you is at the moment - escape everything on this album is different and exciting my favorite artists are mars lasar and patrick o hearn so please keep on going producing best wishes and greetings from germany - bavaria wolfgang meusch

Finally replaced my old worn-out Olympus cassette tape -- yes, cassette tape -- with a new CD. Every time I found one of your CDs in stock in a record store (Records? What are those:) I took it as a sign of good things to come and I was never disappointed. However, I have stopped going to record stores and have just found you online - Nocturnal Diaries, Blue Maze and Final Frontier - excellent stuff.
Thanx for inspirations. MjM Houston, TX USA - Thursday, April 08, 2004
Hey Mars!! Just wanted you to know that I have always, I mean always, been a fan of your music since Olympus. That entire album changed the way I listen to music even to this day. I own just about all of your cds, but I see that my album isn't complete because you've released 4 new albums. I can't wait to get them so that I can show them to my brothers who all are also big fans of yours. 'One Day' I hope to meet you and shake the hand of the one that makes such great music.

Mars Lasar is one of my favorite composers. Thanks to his vision and that of KCSN we've been hosting Sessions from Mars on my show Galactic Voyager Tuesdays at 9pm on KCSN. My program is a mixture of electronic/new age/world/atmospheric music; Sessions adds a new flavor to the program: Music that can't be heard anywhere else! Mars has been contacting various artists and sifting through their unheard music to feature it on the show. It is a lot of fun; check it out on Tuesdays on 88.5 FM or online at www.kcsn.org Thank you Mars; keep the great music coming:)

Mars, I just wanted to post to tell you how wonderful your music is for me. It's something that I've enjoyed listening to every night for months. It's fantastic music for all sorts of activities and it helps me concentrate on things as well as help me sleep at night. My favorite cd of yours is probably a tie between Escape and Sapphire Dreams. Your music also inspired me to learn how to play the piano, so if you have any tips or suggestions, I would love to hear them. Again, thank you for your music and I wish nothing but the best to you and your family.

Mars, I heard a song by you on the radio yesterday (The 11th Hour), played on the local Smooth Jazz station in Washington, DC. I was taken by the song, and completely comforted by your music. I wrote the song down and went to Tower Records to try to find it. They had one CD - Karma - so I bought it. I began listening to it and was so happy and amazed at the power of your music. I love "Great Beast of Wisdom", and others. I just ordered 'The Eleventh Hour' and am so happy to have found it. At the record store when doing a search, the message "No longer Made" came up for the 11th Hour CD. Thank you for having it here on your website - your music and art are AMAZING!!! You remind me of my brother - a very gifted musician.
Love your music . Mary S
Mars, I wanted to let you know that I loved your work on "Ne Ver', Ne Boisja, Ne Prosi" for t.A.T.u. It is one of my favorite songs. I had a couple of questions concerning it. I know at one time there was supposed to be an English version. Do you know what happened with that? I have written an English version that many people have suggested I send to t.A.T.u. if there isn't one already. Also, I don't know if you know of Taty's latest predicament, but they are in need of assistance for their second album. I really want to see a great second album from them and you and Polienko did such a great job with "Ne Ver', Ne Boisja." Do you have e any plans to write any more songs for Taty?

How's it going Mars!! I feel that it's a pleasure just to be able to write to you. Your music is TRULY amazing. I've been hooked on your music ever since my brother purchased your first CD. I write music myself and you to me. You're so creative with your sound that it's just unbelievable. Every time that I listen to your music it makes me just what to sit in front of a piano and create more music. You're such an inspiration. All of my brothers are hooked on your music. You have such a unique sound that stands out tremendously. Hopefully one day I'll be able to go to one of your concerts. That would be a wonderful experience. My brother(Veron Smith) told me about your site and told me that the was more of your music to be discovered. Well, I haven't listened to the new releases yet but I'm sure that I'm in for a treat.
Thank you SO, SO, SO MUCH for your incredible music.

Plateau of the Gods (11.00) and DeJaVu (11.02). Any Mars fan knows what I mean. Just hearing these two tracks alone, and I knew I'd be hooked on this style of music. (BTW: what's Hisham got to do with anything?)

A new year is beginning with fresh new sounds by Mars Lasar. First I've got PANORAMA and NOCTURNAL DIARIES. They are awesome! PANORAMA rules! Mars is getting better and better. Phenomenal music like valuable treasures. On NOCTURNAL DIARIES every track is like an adventure to explore. Moonlight Canyon is excellent. Good work done, Mars! Greetings from Germany to all Mars Lasar-Fans Will

Mars, What can I say but, your music is still awesome and you keeping breaking new grounds. No others can compare to the level you are at. As you know I'm a very big fan since the start the fantastic (Olympus) has had me hooked forever. And Jordan still dances and sings (Children Of The New Age) every time she hears your work. Thanks again and all the best to you all......... :)

Can't wait for faster bf DeltaDigit. (with the chick ; ) ) The lyrics about life! How the hell did a new age man like yourself, end up coming out with this upbeat, really fun and trendy music, hmm? great beats Mars, more more more!!!

Say Mars! I was just surfing MP3 about a week ago, when I came upon BIGBOX, I think I like Vertical Velocity more than the first album. But because of the situation at MP3, I guess I will be purchasing my Chrite instead. Keep on doing the New Electronic Industrial music! I can't wait till the next one! My friends and I are really digging the new Sh*t!

Hello Mars! As usual I was very excited seeing four new releases ready for my listening pleasure!!! I have bought all your releases so far (including Babyscapes and the Moonlight Skies Series). I have never been let down! I bought my first release when 11th Hour first came out! Been a fan ever since. 11:04 is a good addition to the 11th Hour collection and reaffirms my belief that buying that last two -Frontiers and Collaborations" is in order. I hope they are original, connected stylistically and are full of memorable hooks as I have come to enjoy from you. By the way, if your counting, The 11th Hour, Olympic National Park and Karma are the best three albums to date! Best wishes to you, Happy Holidays! Regards, Mikey Oxford (Detroit), MI

Hey Dude, just clicked the "Buy" button again. I've been tripple D diggin' it since '93 and The Eleventh Hour. I've had your tunes with me all over the world (especially nice at 35,000ft transoceanic). Great melodies and grooves, riffs and changes, saaweeet! Paying patron of yours for life.

I expect the 11.04 album will be good. Hisham vs. Lasar!

Mars Lasar: I have been a fan of your music until i listened to your tracks from "Vertical Velocity" on the Associated Production Music website. Your music - "deltadigit", "big box" and others are absolutely amazing. Your music is by far the best industrial electronic I have heard in a long time. I am buying your cd's today. Thanks.

My wife Jelena and we got a boy Danilo Dragoslav on 05/29/2019 who is a big fan of all of Amy’s Lullabies. As baby still in the womb he would go crazy when on our Sirius XM would play Amy’s Lullaby IV.

Dear Mr Lasar,
I'm writing to register my disagreement with the classification Amazon and others are used to give to your compositions.
You sir make music on its highest and elevated conception and any classification is pure misunderstanding of this level of art.
I understand the commercial aspects of the business you are involved, but at the same time calling you a "New Age" artist is far away from the reality of your work.
Congratulations. "Yosemite" is one the most beautiful artwork I ever heard. Special attention to "Glacier Point" and "Merced River".
God bless you for your inspirational art. Long life with health for you and yours.

I have been doing scenic photography for more then 20 years now, and have an appreciation for the artistry that you have, not only in your photography, but in your music as well.
When I am commuting to my regular job, I have your music playing in my car. When I travel thru the air, I have your music "In Flight, Relax" playing on the MP3 player. Your music touches a part of my heart and soul as only another artist can.I feel the emotional drain of the day vanishing as I drive home listening to Sensuality. I feel so much more at peace when your music is playing.
Recently, I had to go thru an MRI on my knee, after working a long day at work. They asked me what type of music did I want to listen to, and I said "Mars Lasar". It was very relaxing, and calming as the machine made its various and sundry noises. I was so much more relaxed that on the way home from the MRI, I was driving in the right hand lane, doing the speed limit. Something that I can attribute to you and your music.
Much continued success, my artistic friend

You've created so many masterpieces that there is not much to say. Your music leaves me speechless.
There is no word to express what is rising inside the "soul" when in touch with your... well, it's far more than music in fact. It is an expression of the beauty of life all around. You clearly have achieved your destiny, the purpose of your life which is to express the essence of life through music. I'm now thinking of a quote from Victor Hugo who said "Music expresses that which can not be said and on which it is impossible to be silent" That is what you achieved.
Here is now my quote ! :) "If Heaven would have a music in the background, it would be one of yours"
"Inseparable Universe" probably :) Or the whole Karma album...or Yosemite album, or, or or....
Anyway, I'm grateful that your music came to me one day... and that the Universe conspired to help you achieve all this.

I just read the email letter about the cancer survivor who had used your music to assist in her healing. It brought to mind a personal memory of much the same kind of thing. A number of years ago, I had been in the habit of randomly recording music from KKNW, a jazz/new age station, in Seattle. On one Saturday evening, I picked up your song, Black Elk from your cd Olympus. The following Monday, my wife was let go, without cause, from her job. To say the least, it was a very upsetting and stressful experience. In the days following she played and replayed, Black Elk. She raved about the music and the soothing effect it had on her, so I made a copy for myself to play in the car. To this day she credits your music with helping her get through this trying time. Your music has a quality that is magical and almost defies description. To us, there is no question of the spiritual essence present in all of your songs. Many, many thanks.

Mars: Your music really helps me relax and calm down. I suffer from pretty severe anxiety, which, at times, becomes agonizing. However, when feeling this way, I pray, and listen to your music. Specifically, MindScapes, Vol. 3-Satin Skies helps me a great deal. It allows me to put things into perspective and realize how lucky I am to have what I have--a wonderful wife and two beautiful little girls.
