Entertainment is crucial to the ability of the arts to offer perception and hope. It’s not just the experience of the performer, then, that is so important for democracy; it’s the way in which performance offers a venue for exploring difficult issues without crippling anxiety.”

— Martha Nussbaum

Inspired by a profound journey to Peru that reawakened my creativity, this newest creation delves into nature's wisdom, spirituality, kindness, mindfulness, and gratitude. While in the captivating Andes, I learned a lot about letting go and making space, exploring beloved paths, and rediscovering what feels good.

This album aims to foster empathy and unity amidst diversity, drawing from ancient traditions and modern science. With interdimensional vibes from my electric violin embedded in lush soundscapes, "Ayahuasca" transcends the boundaries of spirituality while remaining rooted in rationality - and vice versa.

Markus Mars is in a way a warm-hearted trans-human Buddha android, in that he is extending his exquisite fountain of rhythms and melodies through the electronic instruments and live-looping machines. His performance is the bringing of the astral, etheric, hidden song (that already exists) into a form that we can interact with and reflect upon for our collective growth and healing.”

Now, with more than three hours of stunning length, The Theater takes you on an interdimensional journey and psychedelic trip. Submerge yourself in an ocean of sounds and let yourself sink deeper and deeper until you reach the bottom. Once there, meditate peacefully or dance like a Menehune around the bonfire.

I transformed the Static Noise of Ancient Spaces into an audible superfood. I encountered visions of restless Nightmarchers in front of The Big Picture of the Honoka'a People's Theater. There is a lot of Tension and Relief packed into this captivating piece of music, so let The Martian touch your soul and join the psychonaut in you for a trippy Psylent Night. The Haunted Theater awaits you.
