I'm the tragic
princess is drowning
grief for my father
you buried my body
I'm made of cinder
I'm burning in fire
a grave for nobody.
I want what I need
I'm made of timeless
sand and disaster
earthly delights and
I'm the tempest
my skin scarlet
the wind whispers darkly:
I want what I need.
"Revisitante", the fourth album by Chilean composer M Janet Mars (MarsCat), is the culmination of three years of work and fifteen years of musical studies from avantgarde to neoromanticism.
Featuring ten original compositions, some of the most complex, all-encompassing, genre-defying songs of her career; and interpreted by herself, her jazz band MarsCat New Jazz Unit and the neoromantic outfit The 9; these songs explore everything from hypermodern jazz, dark ambient, early electronica experiments, choral music, spy music, film noir, pseudo-arabic folk, new jazz and neobaroque compositions.
We hope you enjoy what might easily be the best and most daring album ever made by M Janet Mars/MarsCat.
All music written and performed by M Janet Mars (Kid MarsCat☆).

"King Question..." is Elkshow's cut-up masterpiece. Gloriously deconstructive and philosophical, Ellipse ponders and explores human questioning in abstract collages that transcend sound and rhythm. Savant Record Series
Human Food's "First Magnum Opus..." travels from one passage of sound to another into a vanishing state of daydream, like a drug trip or a fever, mixing ambient, musique concrete and noise perfectly. Savant Record Series
