European Space Agency and Roscosmos are working on a mission called ExoMars 2022 that will put a rover on the Mars surface. Part of it is a Czech-made instrument – and we are extremely happy that it will carry our song on its hard drive.
Listen to ‘First (Call from Mars)’ by Exit Empire here. See what the song consists of below:
It was fascinating to play with the audio and include real sounds of Martian wind or first gravitational wave ever observed. There are also pictures of the landing location on Mars and the recently captured black hole converted to audio. Lyrics ‘Light will come’ refer to the Czech analyzer with this song on board coming to Mars to study lightning. We also used typical Czech instruments cimbalom and organ.
Exit Empire is a three-piece band currently based in the Czech Republic founded in 2016 by two brothers and their best friend.
