      Jonn Serrie creates music that is irresistible to the ears and
      calming to the mind. Over the course of his illustrious career in
      Spacemusic, Serrie has released highly personal musical
      statements - albums dealing less with the challanging
      mysteries of space than with its moving and inspirational
      grandeur. On LUMIA NIGHTS (58'44"), Serrie's musical charisma
      is on full display. This has got to be one of the most diverse
      albums of EM ever released. Ranging from the smooth deep
      space excursion of "From Here To Eternity" (8'53") to the all-synth
      cover version of Jonny Mercer's "Autumn Leaves" (5'13"), and
      back to the sparkling synth swells, breathy native flutes and deep
      dancing bass tones of "Lumahai", the nine tracks on LUMIA
      NIGHTS cover enormous Spacemusical territory. With the track
      "Deep Mystery" (6'39") and its washes of surf, warm synth pads,
      crystaline lead narrative and sincere mood, Serrie's form easily
      crosses between new age and interstellar music. "Tide Pools"
      (5'48") is tightly arranged and focused right down to the
      windchime accents, subtle rhtyhm track and focused melodic
      content. Along with these more traditional realizations, Serrie
      also explores an area rarely visited by electronic musicians: Sex.
      "Starshower" (7'34") begins innocently enough with glittering
      aural startrails and crossmodulated rumblings, but then the
      slithery bassline, soft sensual beats and fluid chords move
      lewdly under a revererant and suggestive female voice
      whispering sweet nothings and breathless erotic crys. It's all
      quite subdued but nonetheless it's pretty suggestive stuff.
      Perhaps this is his most provocative piece? Maybe, but what it's
      doing is pleading with us to lighten up and put some romance in
      our lives! After all, while he's putting together his albums, Jonn
      Serrie is having a fun time of it... as should we while listening.
