Bert Strolenberg in 2007

Welcome to my website dedicated to Electronic Music.


In the past, Iíve been a reviewer and contributor to the Dutch electronic music fanzine KLEM. After that Iíve been journalist of E-dition Magazine, a printed international magazine on electronic music.

After the sad demise of E-dition in February 2007, I decided to take a break from it all. But as you can imagine I still like to share my knowledge and opinion on electronic music where possible.

Sonic Immersion will be the outlet for my reviews, articles and lots more. So please enjoy its content and feel free to let me know your opinion about it through info@sonicimmersion.org

The World of JONN SERRIE


Jonn Serrie live at The Gatherings

"I envision a certain depth, an experience of sound that gives space for the listener to repose. My goal is to combine the elements of space and romance, creating a delicate backdrop to the soul".
This is the philosophy that has propelled composer/producer Jonn Serrie to the forefront of the contemporary instrumental and space music field.

Atlanta-based musician Jonn Serrie grew up in Connecticut, New England. He started into music taking piano lessons for about 8 years, shortly followed by playing the church organ.

HOWARD GIVENS about the Spotted Peccary label


First of all, what is the Spotted Peccary label all about, how was it established? How hard was it in those days to start from scratch?
Spotted Peccary is an artist-owned label dedicated to the presentation and promotion of mostly instrumental electronic/acoustic music. By that, we mean music that is created through the use of electronic instruments or electronic derived tonalities and augmented with acoustic sounds or instruments, either melodically, or texturally.

Spotted Peccary started in the mid-1980ís in Tucson, Arizona. Since the latter 1970ís my friends and I had been listening to ambient and electronic forms of music including Carlos, Horn, Jarre... (read on)
