Tell us everything will need to know about you.

We are Sonic Minds from Germany, a duo consisting of producer Jens and singer Sonja. We have been working together since 2002 and released several albums so far.

State your favourite genre of music and your reason.

Our preferred genres are electro, synth-pop and dance because of the clearness and versatility you gain with synths.

Tell us your experience as a musician.

Until now we are mainly a studio project without gigs since it is very complex to perform this kind of music on a stage without appearing ridiculous.

Tell us the theme of your song.

“Electricity” is about the coolness of our times, everything is

electrified and our surroundings become darker and darker.

Thanks to Sonja for her fantastic voice and Dieter for the great lyrics.

Tell us about your future goals.

Our future goals are to reach more and more people through our music.

Go into detail about your opinion on religion and politics.

I do not like religions because they are responsible for the most

conflicts on the planet, it is simply overtaken. I do not want to say anything about politics here, sorry.

Elaborate on how you think your music is inspiring your fans.

I guess our music has catchy tunes in a danceable garment that could inspire the listeners.

Explain the changes you have observed so far in the music industry.

The main problem is the internet and streaming platforms since no one is still able to get paid correctly for his music.

Depeche Mode are my heroes because of their innovative style through decades.

Elaborate on how you develop your lyrics.

The lyrics arise by personal experiences or current social things.

Tell us if you enjoy collaborating with other artists or just singing as a solo artist.

We collaborated with an acappella band that was fun and inspiring, solo often is a one way trip.

Brief us your opinion on making music that makes people to dance or making the kind of music with genuine message that inspires them.

You need a simple groove with special lead sounds paired with easy, recognizable phrases performed by a dynamic voice. Too many notes and words overtax the audience.

.

Tell us what you know about copyright.

Each composer, no matter if pro or amateur, no matter if signed or unsigned, owns the copyright of his songs automatically.

.

Discuss the impact of a Performing Right Organization.

Such organizations are important since they care for the composers royalties. But nowadays concerning the internet and streaming platforms these organizations are not more up to date, I think some adaptations are needed.

Elaborate on how you develop your melody and instrumentation.

Mostly I step through my synth patches, stop at an interesting one and start developing a melody or phrase throughout. So you can say that a sound is responsible for the style of a track, nearly automatically.

Go into detail on the recording process of this song.

After collecting enough material I arrange these fragments to a song or rough mix. Then I send the playback to my singer Sonja and my lyricist Dieter. After that we meet to record the vocals and finally the mix-down follows after some editing and correcting.

.

Tell us how you will rate yourself as an artist.

I would rate my project Sonic Minds in a good mid field; I do not think that we have to hide behind famous artists. We all know that luck and networks are mainly responsible for success.
