Mars Requiem

CD 1995


Mars Requiem

Studio-Album

Helga Pogatschar’s MARS Requiem is a modern, aggressive lullaby of death, a crossover under the sign of the cross, fifty years after the end of war. The MARS Requiem does not want to just remember of the dead, but to ask, why they had to die.

MARS is a “Dies Irae” of electronic soundscapes, composed by a “bad girl” who opposes against male music tradition.

Technoid Industrial-soundwalls meet the world of Carl Orff. Unique, evoking and disturbing!

Total time: 65:34


The MARS Requiem was commissioned by Carl Erling.
