Markus Fahrenberger was born and raised in Austria and started having fun with a wide variety of instruments at the age of five: violin, drums, percussion, piano, guitar, didgeridoo, composing and conducting. After being trained in classical music for over 15 years, composing for and touring with several Symphonic Orchestras and Chamber Orchestras, he started playing the drums and electric violin in rock, blues, world and fusion bands. Markus soon discovered his passion for electronic music and started performing and touring internationally with DJs from around the world.
After touring 30 countries with more than 50 bands and playing over 3,000 shows, plant-based food enthusiast Markus moved to Hawai'i in 2015 and created Son of Mars, an electronic music project featuring electric violin and didgeridoo. He released his debut album, Interdimensional, in 2017 under the label Merkaba Music.
After his 2017 Europe tour, he returned to the Island of Hawai’i and started his Space to Earth live streaming project Markus Mars, which is a mostly improvised performance with live looping electric violin, telescopic didgeridoo, subwoofer cajón, and vocal mic featuring elements of his transformational musical journeys, heavily influenced by inspiring artists such as Jean-Luc Ponty, Andrew Bird, Nigel Kennedy, Darol Anger, Mark O'Connor, Johann Sebastian Bach, Steve Reich, Shpongle, Jimi Hendrix, Vassar Clements, and Miles Davis.

The Son Of Mars is an alien life form stranded on Earth, transmitting intergalactic sound waves into your auditory canals.
There, among the far-flung stars and planets of the outer galaxies, sounds are harvested and prepared for transmission via various earthly musical communication devices such as a 5-string electric violin, telescopic didgeridoo, and synthesizer.
From these agents, an electronic symphony emerges, activating an inner life force that invites all who come into contact with it to be an observer of the human condition.
