In this respect I think Amir Baghiri's work should be mentioned as well...

I truely hope the vaults with a massive load of unreleased music will be opened up soon one way or the other

Other Ambient (and related) Music / Jonn Serrie - Starmoods mc (1984)
« on: December 30, 2021, 03:00:50 AM »
I wondered if there anybody on this forum who has a copy of Jonn Serrie's cassette 'Starmoods' & ripped its music to digital?
If so, please send me a PM.
Much appreciated!


Independent Music Reviews / Sonic Immersion's Seasons Greetings
« on: December 22, 2021, 08:27:05 AM »

Same as 2020, the year 2021 deprived so many of us from human interactions that we once took for granted. 
Music though can be a great companion allowing us to feel connected, comforted, and even transported through just the sounds that fill the space between our ears.
I feel this applies especially to ambient and space music. It still does the trick for me; I sincerely hope it establishes something similar for you too.

One more thing:
The creation of the internet is one of the greatest technological achievements of our times. Information and references are instantly available on just about any topic preserved on servers for posterity.
While creating content can be free, sharing it via a host service brings about an inevitable cost and Sonic Immersion is no exception.
Every week I receive a lot of music for which I juggle my time to listen and distil my experiences into short and to the point reviews to stimulate curiosity, promote the music and help listeners explore new aural experiences.

While the website design and content maintenance is secure the hosting costs is in need of a bit of help.

Please enjoy the content as before and if you can offer any support through PayPal, remember that a little help can go a long way.

Thank you & stay safe.

Thank you all....
Small alterations & adjustments will be made in de forthcoming period.

Thanks for the feedback Chris, appreciated!

Dear electronic music fellows,

Please accept the belated explanations for Sonic Immersion's lack of activity for a while.

Website design and hosting changes over the years made it more and more difficult to maintain the old site until it could do no more.
Just like a devious illness the slow crippling process made it easier to overlook its imminent demise.
With some most dedicated help from two friends a new website became viable which despite it’s visible simplicity the background coding did present enough challenges.
The key aspects were future proofing, simpler website navigation, simple but effective enhancements such as Searching options, Artist pages and most importantly retaining historical information.

 …long story short, I'm happy to announce the wait is over by welcoming you back to the new website at
I hope you enjoy the outcome bearing in mind ongoing enhancements and fixes as we come across them.
Exhaustive proof tests would take a long time so I invite you to report negative functionality issues or general feedback at

Best regards,
Bert Strolenberg

Interesting topic. I feel this also applies to some work of Altus, Boreal Taiga and Rudy Adrian along Pascal Savy's "The Silent Watcher"...
Great stuff to immerse into or travel to worlds beyond.

Keep in mind there are 2 different versions of "Western Spaces", one on IC, the other on Fortuna;
I once wrote a small article ("Ultimate Desert Soundtracks: Western Spaces & Desert Solitaire" on this album which can be found on my site in the Features-section:

Just my 2 cents......

excellent deep ambient & recommended for the cold, darkening season coming up;

Zanov played live on stage for the first time since his come-back at SynthFest France 2017 (his previous stage performance dates back to June 1978).
This unique concert featured songs of his last album « Open Worlds » and included several new exclusive musical themes. The performance was complimented by a special video created & produced by Zanov which fits his musical universe.

The price of the DVD is € 20. You will be receiving a refund if the DVD is not produced before May 31st, 2018.
You will be kept informed by email on the progress of the project.
For more info, please use email
