Surya Kris Peters is a cosmic solo project by Samsara Blues Experiment guitarist/vocalist Chris Peters from Berlin. He uses lots of synthesizers, Fender Rhodes, electric organ, guitars, Irish bouzouki, sitar, harp, reed organ, gong, Tibetan singing bowl, bohran and rhythm machines etc. to create peaceful, meditative and deep "music for the higher spheres", as he truthfully describes it. Status Flux was recorded occasionally during 2014 and 2015 and is the first album by this project and so far only available digitally from Electric Magic's Bandcamp site. The album includes eight instrumental pieces that soothes your soul and rise your spirit up into the sky and space. Some of the tracks have obvious Eastern vibes, and I like the way Peters combines electronic music with ethnic, acoustic instruments and guitars. The longest piece is called "Passage to Another World", and that's a very suitable title. I really enjoy the tranquil, evocative and transdimentional mood on this release. You just need to lay down, close your eyes, and let the music carry you to other, new and wonderful places in the multiverse. This is a great way to relax and regain your strength in this way too stressful, busy and chaotic world of ours. If you like this album, also check out his previous acid folk solo project Soulitude that can be found at Electric Magic's Bandcamp site as well.
