"Moonstruck" is the follow-up to Surya Kris Peters debut "Status Flux" from 2015. The album was recorded during Summer and Fall of the same year. Yet another time styles blend from Psychedelia to Electronic Kraut to Classical Folk and Minimalist Drone. The focus on this album was to further explore analog synth-systems, such as a modular synthesizer, in an almost meditative way.
Some tunes may have been influenced by Japanese artists like Tomita, Kitajima, and even a bit of Kitaro. In general, this project is not much about traditional songwriting, as more an interplay of sound and effect with the almost childlike approach to play music. More of Kris influences would be Ananda Shankar, Józef Skrzek (SBB), Éliane Radigue, and 1960s Bollywood tunes.
So fly up to the moon, the space age is here!
