On this 1995 release, Jonn Serrie augments his patented space-music minimalism with a refreshing earthiness. The first four songs possess a tuneful momentum not often found in his other work, with a purring saxophone as the lead voice. Still, there is a vivid sense of adventure and otherness in the songs. “Ixlandia” is a smooth-jazz travelogue of alien terrain, and “Blue Lumia” has a vaguely Eastern flavor.

Midway through the record, a slower, more ambient mood takes over. Once again we are gently propelled into the outer realm by languid synthesizer tones and galactic textures. The final track, “Welcome Home,” smoothly blends the celestial with the earthbound: buried deep in the mix is the hushed recitation, in Italian, of a love poem.
