Co-founder of the French audiotrauma collective, since 1997, SONIC AREA (aka Arco Trauma, Chrysalide..), has been creating hybrid, bold and immersive electronic music, made from pure synthesis and sonic cut-up, by taking inspiration from the industrial scene, hip hop, tribal, ambient and movie soundtracks.
An ambitious and original approch, full of moments of grace and inclined to retro futurism that brings
a deep fresh wave to the electronic scenes and to a certain idea of independant artistic life style.
In 2016, four years after the critically acclaimed 'Music for Ghosts' album, SONIC AREA returned with 'Eyes in the Sky', a release which astoundingly combines the unmistakable with the unexpected. Inspired by the mysteries secretly hidden within dark nights and by classical sci-fi culture, this oeuvre is about a nostalgic cosmic space and time travel in an imaginary spherical spaceship. A metaphor of the phantasmagoric
biosphere/technosphere all autists and mind explorers nowadays survive in, locked in their own imagination while drifting into the unknown.
If you don't know SONIC AREA, you have every reason to change that as soon as possible. Novices will discover a varied and rich universe of truly innovative electronic music.
