Jonn Serrie introduces Thousand Star, which follows a similar direction he had taken with The Stargazer's Journey in that he presents an opportunity to embark on a sonic voyage into deep space.
This time, instead of an Earth based view of observing space from a distance, Jonn invites the audience to take the voyage with him as it happens.
The song titles and poem act as a guide as to where and how the voyage unfolds with timing and sound design elements emphasizing direction and place. The album is intended to play as if the listener were taking part in a science fiction novel, told with music and sound design instead of words and pages.
The "Revelation Space" series by Alastair Reynolds was a constant companion during the creation of Thousand Star.
