The Occupy Mars Band Research Department

The Physics of Electronic Music: A Photo Essay By Bob Barboza

Music and science come together for the new visual jazz opera about the planet Mars.

Bob Barboza is selecting instruments for the “Occupy Mars Band Concert” in the USA.  He went to the NAMM Show in southern California to talk with musicians and instrument designers from around the world.   Some of the musicians will appear as soloists for Bob’s new visual jazz opera on the topics of  Mars and are we alone in the universe.  We continue to search for original compositions and writers on the topics of deep space and Mars.   For more information contact
