MovieScore Media takes a trip to outer space with the seven movement concert work From Earth to Mars: A Symphonic Journey and two other pieces. The piece was first performed in December 2000 and was Rodríguez’s first professionally commissioned composition, ordered by The Kennedy Center / Imagination Celebration Fort Worth. By depicting the trip of the first human colony to Mars through the power of music, Rodríguez wrote seven movements of orchestral majesty in the style of his favorite '80s sci-fi scores and composers such as John Williams, James Horner and Jerry Goldsmith. The recording on the album is performed by 80 musicians (and choir) of The New Millennium Philharmonic Orchestra.

The album includes two other self-contained pieces by Rodríguez. The opening track entitled "Gate of Creation" was commissioned for the Universidad de Monterrey for the opening of their Center for Art, Architecture and Design, designed by Japanese architect Tadao Ando. The first two performances in 2013 were accompanied by a light show projected onto the building. The album's closing track is the composer's latest composition, whose theme of space exploration nicely compliment From Earth to Mars. "El rostro de la Luna (The Face of the Moon)" was written especially for the orchestra that recorded it: the Orquesta Sinfónica de San Luis Potosí.

From the last post, it's another interesting score/sound-scape that brings a lot of energy from composer Arturo Rodriguez
