Our Approach

Good music takes a little bit of brains, a little bit of raw emotion, and a good deal of time and discipline.

Here at The Mars Orchestra, we try to keep the creative juices flowing by listening, reading, applying, experimenting, and overall just enjoying the creative process.

The Mars Orchestra Story

The Mars Orchestra is a one man show, myself, Kery Michael.  I began playing the piano as a wee-lad, and then the guitar not long after that.  I've always enjoyed jamming with friends and writing chords, riffs, melodies, etc.  I never thought about making a career of it.

But I became aware of the fact that an acquaintance of mine writes music full time for libraries, TV, etc.  So after getting some suggestions from him I said, let me give it a shot.  I bought Logic X and got to work learning EQ, compression, and mixing.  Thoroughly enjoying it, constantly learning, and, hopefully improving.
