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;

« on: June 24, 2017, 02:17:50 AM »
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.

PWM & Zanov Music have set-up a crowdfunding project to produce a "Limited Edition" DVD from this concert, filmed with 8 cameras. 100 units will be produced if there is enough interest to pre-order it.
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

You can subscribe in French on the Patch Work Music website :

Alternatively, if you don’t speak French, you can subscribe in English on the Zanov Music Shop website :

Kai replied to me he's planning to join this jolly forum soon..

I can always give it a go.....

I rediscovered this 1985-classic from Germany recently & found out the composer remastered & digitally remixed the music in 2011; he's now offering it as a cd-r; for those interested, read the review on my site for an impression, which has the composers e-mail at the bottom.

Silentwave - Daiyuzan ; if you dig Roach's "Quiet Music" you will dig this quality ambient by this Japanese composer;
