A Place Glowing a Brilliant Red is a concept album about a civilisation of humans that colonises planet Mars. Set in the near future, we follow the development and the independence movement of this new society. As it slowly breaks up its economic ties with Earth, the society experiences an economic collapse. Although slow, this leads to a middle age period where the society, on the terraformed planet, breaks apart and establishes small city state like kingdoms and tribal societies. After thousands of years, new technological, and above all bureaucratic developments lead to a new Mars, a unified technocratic, developed, progressive society. The society enjoys past times such as having a weekend at an electronic store. Soon they discover their roots on planet Earth.
