Mars in Aquarius

The ensemble Mars in Aquarius came into being in Aberdeen in early 2015 as an adjunct to Mark Spalding's yearlong project to commemorate the 40th anniversary of Karlheinz Stockhausen's Tierkreis (a.k.a. Signs of the Zodiac), its role being to play Intuitive Music compositions from Stockhausen's collections Aus den sieben Tagen (From the Seven Days) and Für kommende Zeiten (For Times to Come).

Mars in Aquarius also played music by Stockhausen's pupil Cornelius Cardew and other experimental composers associated with him.
