"Martian River" is track 5 on Bruce Cohen's solo album, Two BC, released 9/10/11, by Tarock Music. "Martian River" is an apocalypse on Mars! Take a journey down a river on the planet, and maybe meet your own Kurtz at the end. Lush keyboards and sounds accompanied by tablas sends you on the mission. It's ambient on steroids.
"Martian River" is synced to still photographs from the 1959 film, "Plan Nine From Outer Space." directed by Edward D. Wood, Jr. (10/10/1924 to 12/10/1978), who was also a screenwriter, producer, actor, author, and film editor.
In the 1950's, Wood made a number of low-budget science-fiction, horror, and cowboy genre films. In the 1960's and 1970's, he made sexploitation movies, and wrote over eighty pulp crime, horror, and sex novels. In 1980 he was posthumously awarded a Golden Turkey Award as Worst Director of All Time, renewing public interest in his work. Wood's unsuccessful career and camp approach has earned him and his films a cult following. Director Tim Burton's 1994 biopic of Wood's life, "Ed Wood," is a critically acclaimed film that earned two Academy Awards.
