Surya Kris Peters biography
Introspective, contemplative, evocative: SURYA KRIS PETERS is the solo project of Samsara Blues Experiment's mainbrain Christian Peters.

His first LP, The Hermit, can be seen as a summary of Peters' musical influences reaching from childhood memories of Mike Oldfield and Bedrich Smetana to adolescent impressions by Trance To The Sun and Saturnia, sprinkles of Krautrock (especially Popol Vuh and Klaus Schulze), and actual favorites like synthesizer drone-minimalist Eliane Radigue and sounds from Far East by artists like Osamu Kitajima and Ananda Shankar.

While being rooted in the early days of electronic music Surya Kris Peters yet takes on a different approach. He masters to add his own perspective to music without being nostalgic.

— First review of this album —
3 stars Surya Kris PetersīMoonstruck (2016) is a 6 track release which goes beyond the merely electronic prog tagging by blending in some acoustic instruments and different stylings.

In some way this 35+- minute EP actually takes off around track 3: Sleepless City- An inventive & ethereal urban/electronic composition. The previous tracks just kind of set the mood even though track 2: The Legend Of Raja Shakuu (the longest track of this EP) promises much in its intro but stays kind of short of a very good "Kraut/Blues" idea.

Track 4: Chandra Luna is faithful to the feel of his 2016 The Hermit, a kind of electro/acoustic pagan ritual feel by the way.

Moonstruck Serenade, which follows, is a strange but creative merge between acoustic piano and a leading creepy sounding organ surrounded by electronic quirks and noises. An unorthodox poetic blend which oddly works out.

The album closes with La Morriņa another strange mixture between acoustic guitar alongside a kind of Theremin sound which has no mention as an intrument on the instruments listing, if anything, this track is interesting and fun.

For an EP what is good could have been more and some good ideas stay short of their own possible outcome.

***3 PAīs stars.

4 stars A Progressive Electronic/Krautrock blend which is kept in size wisely.

Surya Kris Petersī The Hermit, 2016, is, opposite to my expectations, quiet a relief. No monstrous influences overshadowing the sonic experience and even better than that intelligent and enticing melody lines with gorgeous multi-instrumental foregrounds & backgrounds some intimate acoustic guitar based electronically adorned compositions and subtle ethnic flavors scattered around in the right amount.

This release is actual proof of how it is not the instruments which outdate music but the lack of fresh and creative ideas! And Surya Kris Peters is full of these in this release. The deeper you travel into this auditive experience the more you get hooked and surprised.

This album is Bright/Dark beautiful without intention just sheer great instrumental electronic music composition with perfect pitch arrangements and the perfect dose of experimentation. The weak spot, in comparison to its siblings, is track 7-Chandra Luna which is a 3.5 stars track.

As I write this review I donīt know how this album is rated in PA but I HOPE there are other PE reviewers and followers with the same hunger for non Klaus Schulze & TD (or any other famous name) voluntary or involuntary copycats.

****4.5 PA stars.

Thanks to rivertree for the artist addition.
