 "My goal is to dissolve the veil between source and destination,
 so my audience feels the music the way I do and I feel the
 music the way they do".

Jonn Serrie's visionary compositional skills have revolutionized
today's contemporary electronic music. He creates a unique
approach by combining the timeless depths of space with
spiritual musical vision, spanning the universe.

Born and raised in Connecticut, Serrie cultivated a passion for both music and aviation. He began playing the piano and organ at the age of seven with his grandmother as his teacher and mentor.

  Thelma Serrie
  was 92 years
  old
and still
  teaching
piano and
  church organ.

  This tells you
  something about
  doing what you
  really love...



As time went on he was deciding between composing music or pursuing a career as a professional pilot. Choosing the former, Serrie began his musical direction in the 1970s demonstrating synthesizer technology for Electronic Music Laboratories, a Connecticut based manufacturing and research facility.

 Jonn is an FAA licensed pilot with advanced instrument and commercial ratings and has flown for the U.S. Air Force Auxiliary as a search and rescue mission pilot.

This is a custom modular
analog synthesizer designed
and built by my good friend
George Mattson.

The system uses
components and modules
manufactured exclusively
by Electronic Music Labs
and George Mattson.

  I was honored to
  be one of the three
  pilots from Georgia

  chosen to participate
  in
missions during 
  Deep Water Horizon.

 Major Jonn Serrie
 Lt. Andy Tate
 Colonel Bryan Starr

 Pilots who flew the
 missions received
 the Disaster Relief
Presidential award
with Valor.
 
 

 



Thousand Star,
released on New World Music is the first in a three part sci-fi odyssey to the farthest reaches of deep space. The listening experience unfolds as a science fiction novel told with music and sound design.

 A constant
 companion during
 the creation of
 Thousand Star was
 the "Revelation
 Space" series by
 Alastair Reynolds.

 Special thanks to
 Alastair for the song
 images and
 inspiration.

Day Star,
Jonn's newest release on New World Music and the second album in his sci-fi series, unveils his galactic visions of space music and sound design in grand style. Day Star opens up vistas and universes with stories revealed and explored in fascinating audio journeys.

The headgear and
visor
lights will be
a common visionary
element in the three
album covers. All
different, yet all the
same.



  Such an honor that
  "And The Stars Go
  With You" was used
  in the opening show
  production of the 
  
Christa McAuliffe
 
Planetarium in New
  Hampshire in 1988.

  The album had just
  been released a few
  months earlier.

Jonn's recorded works include his celebrated first release, And The Stars Go With You dedicated to Teacher In Space Christa McAuliffe, and a double CD retrospective of his years at the top of the space music universe called Century Seasons.




O
n the twin projects, Hidden World and Hidden World Beyond  on Valley Entertainment, Serrie collaborates with flute virtuoso Gary Stroutsos to create albums that combine the universe of space music with ancient Native American and World music styles.





O
ther titles include the adventurous Flightpath, world music influenced Tingri, and two compilation albums of music from his various planetarium projects entitled Planetary Chronicles Volume 1 and Volume 2. Also, two sister albums around the theme of epic romance entitled Midsummer Century and Ixlandia, as well as a Native American space music album called Spiritkeepers.




L
umia Nights, an album of soft romantic jazz and The Stargazer's Journey, a concept album with liner notes written by famed astronomer David Levy encompass the universe of sound and sense. Smooth gentle melodies and graceful space journeys surround you in an atmosphere of romantic elegance and deep space wonders.

  It took weeks to
  design the Lumia
  Nights logo;

  I drove everyone
  crazy...

  Released on
 
Hearts Of Space
