SONAR


SONAR

Sonar started in 1996 as a project from Dirk Ivens (Dive / The Klinik / Absolute Body Control ) and Patrick Stevens ( Hypnoskull ) with the aim to create rhythmical noise and dark soundscapes, music with a combination of analogue and digital instruments. Patrick left in 1998 and was replaced by Eric van Wonterghem ( Monolith / Insekt / Absolute Body Control ). The rhythms remind to working machines, the soundscapes to droning planes. The sound of Sonar is made to make you move in another way, to tune you into a hypnotic beat. It is a straightforward sound which goes further on classic industrial but never without an extra dimension of powerful dynamics and tuned electronics. Sonar is looking for a contemporary definition of danceable industrial and tries to discover this by controlling electronic devices. 

SONAR performed @ Friday the 13th, May 2011
