From the Archives - 1978

Perelandra Dawn

The recording that launched Hearts of Space Records.

In early 1978, I had just finished building the "Mighty Serge" Modular Analog Synthesizer. (Well, one is never finished building a modular synth...) It was done enough to compose this piece and record it to 4-track tape. I met Stephen Hill and gave him a copy of it. He and Anna Turner played it on their radio program, "Music from the Hearts of Space" for six years. I was resistant to putting out my music back then with the exception of "Lullaby for the Hearts of Space" in 1980 which I released on my own start up label. They approached me and said if I wasn't going to release it, they would like to. That was the beginning of Hearts of Space Records - 1984.

The first release of Hearts of Space Records was the second version of "Perelandra" later renamed for the new piece paired with it, "The Way Home." It was Stephen who coined the name, "Mighty Serge" - a reference to the giant and densely populated Mighty Wurlitzer theater organ.

"Perelandra Dawn" is the original music that Stephen and Anna played on Music from the Hearts of Space Radio, then just named "Perelandra." I gave it this name to distinguish it from the later release. I could not find an original mix that had survived the disintegrating tape fiasco of the '70's but managed to salvage the original 4-track recording and remixed it.

This music was inspired by the second book of a trilogy written by C.S. Lewis, "Perelandra," the name given to the planet Venus.
