SONICrider went through enormous artistic changes in 2017. Coming from a more dance-oriented place to performing Electroacoustic music sets. Seemingly more at ease with his artistic self and even more in close conversation with his expanding audience.
We are taken into a playful state of call and response phrasing. His large modular synthesizer sets up the base for a soundscape. His ever-growing set of analog tools and instruments provide a rich sound palet ddiven by the Koma Kommander and Field Kit.
This setup is vastly expanding the sonic capabilities. It’s there in every live performance of him in the second half of 2017. Ever so skillfully handled.
Jurgen Winkel (a.k.a. SONICrider) is a producer, musician, artist, programmer and performer. He started as musician as a member of the band BLIND an underground electro-rock band during the late eighties and nineties.
Jurgen Winkel currently combines electronic music and analogue sounds, producing experimental danceable music with all kinds of styles.
