Mars Lasar - Olympus (1992) Style: New Age
A series of uplifting and romantic adventures that capture the true spirit of the Olympic Games. This is powerful music unlike any you've ever heard.

A note from Mars:
Shortly after arriving in the USA from Australia I made a compilation of my recent work and sent them out to various labels. Out of the dozen or so tapes we sent, we had a strong reply from Real Music CA. This lead to my first artist contract. "Olympus" was a compilation of new and old material. I sketched out an idea for the cover and faxed it to the label, they were thrilled and the result is as you see the cover today. "Awakenings" was inspired by the Robin Williams film "Awakenings". "Black Elk" was written after working on a documentary about the Declaration of Independence and learning about the history of the Native Americans. I found some similarities between these people and the Australian Aboriginals.
Tracks from "Olympus" were used during the 1992 Winter Olympics. In fact. an official wrote me about how my work captured the spirit of the games.
After the cover was painted it all came together. Tracks like "Victory", "Champions" and "Mount Olympus" came to life and it became clear that "Olympus" would be a collection of personal victories. Shortly after its release the album was being played in heavy rotation on radio across the USA, I was pleasantly surprised and knew there was something to this life long experiment of mine - Let's do more!!

5.0 out of 5 stars - Epic... just plain epic!

5.0 out of 5 stars - A CD to be Heard
BySifu Zhouon June 23, 2000

To be honest, I purchased this thinking that many tracks would be the same as on the main albums, Track 4 is my favourite, catching a dark eastern atmosphere, followed by Black Elk. There are some tracks which don't quite hack it like track 2, sounding like an Arabic budget fairy tale series theme. It's all orientated to middle eastern new age, as you would expect, with spot-on cover art. A good mix of tracks are here giving a 'different' atmosphere - definately one for fans of new age or for unusual backing music. Some of these tracks could have easily been used in films like 'The Mummy'.

5.0 out of 5 stars - Great Album!

This is one of my favourite albums by Mars Lasar. I have ripped this cd to my mp3 player and I always make sure to carry it with me if I'm going on a roadtrip in my car. There's something quite amazing about this cd. It is Mars at his best and it's very easy to sit through several sessions of this if you hit the repeat button. It is that good.

4.0 out of 5 stars - Anyone remember Shen and Zhou's 1998 Olympic long program?
By Michael Schuron February 4, 2009

I became interested in mars lasar's music when I watched the 1998 World Figure skating pairs long program on television. The Chinese pair of Xue Shen and Zhou Hongbo used music from Tracks one & six off this album for their program. I like this album very much. The music is modern, very innovative and very exciting.
