Serge understood sentiment, iconoclasm – & the seductive nature of sound. Most singer-songwriters haven't a clue. That's why his music sounds so rich, full, ambient, & continues to resonate. This makes him a treasure trove for samplers, electronica producers, and other treasure hunters. It's his full sound but also the icon & its constant destruction & reconstruction & his sense of humor – added value to his immortality. His openness to allow others to "collaborate" with him is legendary. He's an open system as if still alive negotiating, writing, rewriting and haunting the public sector. Grafitti outside his home post mortem at 5 rue Verneuil in Paris: Serge is not Dead, he is in heaven fucking.”
