The back cover of Musique Electronique du Cosmos describes Mars Reflector as “the musical effects of falling stars”. The piece showcases Perrey’s ability to create engaging abstract soundscapes using just the Ondioline’s register and timbre possibilities, varying amounts of reverb, and the instrument’s fine tuning knob which could be turned through a range of notes to attain smooth glissandi.

On this compilation, ‘Mars Reflector’ acts as prélude to the full-blown space popera of the side’s dynamic closing number, ‘Pioneers of the Stars’.
