The Late Heavy Bombardment is a prequel to Water on Mars by Kevin Sluder. Four billion years ago, Jupiter passed through an asteroid belt, pummeling Mercury, Venus, Earth, Earth’s moon and Mars with countless projectile asteroids. Scientists believe water was created as a result of the immense heat caused by the asteroids’ impact. The piece can be performed independently or with an optional direct segue to Water On Mars. The Late Heavy Bombardment celebrates an independent, melodic bass part and the opportunities it can bring to the string orchestra.
