#NASA – “On a more cosmic note, Tilted Axes goes to Mars in 2020. Tilted Axes: Music for Mobile Electric Guitars has joined the roster of names that will be inscribed onto a silicon chip as part of the 2020 Mars rover mission. Engineers with the Microdevices Laboratory at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California will stencil all the names onto the chip with an electron beam. “This is part of a public engagement campaign to highlight missions involved with NASA’s journey from the Moon to Mars,” NASA officials wrote in a statement.

The 2020 Mars rover is scheduled to launch to the Red Planet on July 2020 and land inside the 28-mile-wide (45 kilometers) Jezero Crater. The 2,300-lb. (1,040 kilograms) rover, with its nuclear power source, will search for signs of past microbial life, study the climate and geology of Mars, and collect samples that may be returned to Earth on a future mission”. #TiltedAxes #GoesToMars

A Special Thanks to Our Co-producers from Tilted Axes

Planetarium

Dear co-producers, sponsors, and supporters,

Thank you for much for your support throughout the spring and summer. With your help, we’ve been able to present a number of free performances to the public. 

Most recently we completed our residency at the 27th Annual Concert of Colors in Detroit at the Detroit Institute of Arts and the Michigan Science Center. Over two days we were able to perform for a couple thousand people live and many more than that through television.

The response was incredible. Every paper and magazine made us a Critics’ Pick and we were well represented on the the radio, WDET and CJAM especially.

With your help, we created a new type of work that will resonate for a long time. Now we have something that can be presented with other museums, science centers, and transformative community arts organizations. This will come.
