2010 in review and highlights for our new Sonic Seekers [ English and German Text ]

ENG Greetings from the Sonic Warriors United Bunker, we hope all is well on your side of the planet.

The holidays are upon us. Everyone is sharing cosy feelings with friends, family and co-workers. The New Year is just around the corner as well. We hope everyone has a great time and remember...keep it safe during the festive season, others are counting on you.

The Sonic Seekers 2010 Tour has been one of reconnection, discoveries and new connections for the Sonic Warriors United crew. The first half of the Tour we ventured out over Germany with DJ sets and live performances in Berlin, Ingolstadt, Oberweißbach, Erfurt, Kassel, Eisenach, Jena, Unterweid, Dresden and Fulda, intertwined with radio mix & interview shows. We've reconnected with clubs and promoters that we've worked with in the past and also made connections with new clubs and promoters for future events. We've had scheduled live streams along the way Live from the SWU Bunker, as well as Second Life (SL) performances. Sonic Seekers Stage 1 and Stage 2 promotion details.

[Video highlights from Radebeul, Germany].

We're working on tour dates for 2011 and should have more information in upcoming SWU blog posts for you. If you know of interesting locations in your area please, let us know.

Along the way during the tour, crew members Denard Henry, Jana Clemen, Dean Freud and Chris (C-Dex) have discovered and made the jump, literally, inside the internet super highway, via Second Life (SL). We've been given a monthly residency at The Drome and have introduced the SWU fusion to a receptive crowd of regular and veteran SL residents.

There's a plethora of electronic music being represented in SL. We've setup up camp at Virtual Advisor as a spring board for our sonic base in the Metaverse. Participating in SL is not just an “inworld” experience, most if not all of the virtual clubs provide a shoutcast stream, so you can tune into the event with your computer's media player via a provided link, but there's nothing like the inworld chat or connections you can make while inworld.

Denard Henry has been invited to do DJ sets for the new inworld location INSPIRE ODYSSEY Dance and Particle Park. You can look forward to some nice eclectic sounds for this location as we'll have a time slot there on every 3rd Wednesday of the month. We are working things out at the moment, more info coming soon. Being that it's new, not much has been written about it yet. To give you some insight, just imagine a more hyped version of INSPIRE SPACE Park from the same crew / designers. You can tune in at 12pm SLT, 9pm CET, 3pm EST via your music / media player here.


...that's all for 2010. We wish everybody a happy & healthy New Year! We'll see you on the other side in our next blog post in January 2011.

GER Grüße aus dem Sonic Warriors United Bunker - Wir hoffen, dass auf eurer Seite des Planeten alles okay ist.

Die Feiertage kommen über uns: alle teilen dieses behagliche Gefühl mit ihren Freunden, ihrer Familie und den Mitarbeitern. Und auch das Neue Jahr schaut schon um die Ecke. Wir hoffen, dass alle eine schöne Zeit haben aber trotzdem nicht vergessen während der Feiertage aufzupassen – die anderen zählen auf euch.

Die Sonic Seekers Tour 2010 war eine der Wiederverbindungen, Entdeckungen und Neuverbindungen für die Crew. Die erste Hälfte der Tour haben wir durch Deutschland unternommen und dabei DJ-Sets und Live-Performances in Berlin, Ingolstadt, Oberweißbach, Erfurt, Kassel, Eisenach, Jena, Unterweid,Dresden und Fulda abgeliefert. Zwischendurch gab es Radio-Mixe und -Interviews. Wir haben wieder Kontakt mit Clubs und Veranstaltern aufgenommen, mit denen wir schon in der Vergangenheit gearbeitet haben und ebenso Verbindungen zu neuen Clubs und Veranstaltern für zukünftige Events geknüpft. Während dessen sind Live from the SWU Bunker sowie Auftritte in Second Life eingeplant. Stage 1 and Stage 2 promotion details.

[Video highlights from Radebeul, Germany].


Wir arbeiten gerade an tour dates für 2011 und sollten mehr Infos für Euch in der nächsten SWU Blog Post haben. Wenn Ihr interessante Lokations in Eurer Gegend kennt dann lasst es Uns bitte wissen.

Während der Tour entdeckten die Crew-Mitglieder Denard Henry, Jana Clemen, Dean Freud and Chris (C-Dex) den Internet Super-Highway in Form von Second Life (SL) und haben, im wahrsten Sinne des Wortes, den Sprung hinein gemacht. Wir haben einen monatlichen Platz im SL Club The Drome erhalten und einem empfänglichen Publikum aus regulären und alteingesessenen SL-Bewohnern die SWU-Mischung näher gebracht.

In SL wird jede Menge elektronische Musik präsentiert und wir hoffen dort der Crew einen Namen zu machen. Wir haben unsere Zelte bei Virtual Advisor aufgeschlagen, als dem Sprungbrett unserer akustischen Basis im Metaversum. Die Teilnahme an SL ist jedoch nicht nur ein „Innenwelt“-Erlebnis – die meisten, wenn nicht gar alle virtuelle Clubs bieten einen Shoutcast-Stream, sodass man sich mittels des computereigenen Media-Players über einen gebotenen Link zum Event hinzu schalten kann. Aber es gibt nichts wie einen Innenwelt-Chat oder die Kontakte, die man haben kann, wenn man drinnen ist.

Denard Henry wurde zu einem DJ-Sets eingeladen, das im neuen INSPIRE ODYSSEY Dance and Particle Park stattfand. In dieser Location könnt ihr euch auf vielseitige Musik freuen, da wir dort ein Zeitfenster an jedem 3. Mittwoch des Monats haben werden. Wir sind gerade noch dabei ein paar Dinge zu klären, mehr Infos dazu gibt es bald. Da die Location neu ist, wurde bisher nicht viel über sie geschrieben. Um einen Einblick zu bekommen, stellt euch einfach eine aufgepptere Version des INSPIRE SPACE Park vor, der von der selben Crew / den selben Designern ist. Ihr könnt euch um 24.00 (SLT), 21.00 (CET), 15.00 (EST) hier über euren Musik- / Medienplayer zuschalten.

...das war's für 2010. Wir wünschen allen eine glückliches & gesundes Neues Jahr! Wir sehen uns auf der anderen Seite in unserem nächsten blog post im Januar 2011.

2010 the year of decisions, connections, growth and bonding with you

This was the year of social networking and mobile computing for me. There's a lot of sites and services I thought I wouldn't use, let alone even join. I even considered deleting a few I've been using for some time, but in the end I'm very happy with my decision to keep them all.

I've been able to reconnect with friends, make new ones along the way and in many ways introduce some of you to each other at this "Virtual Round Table" of sorts.

It was a full year of touring with the Sonic Warriors United crew for the Sonic Seekers Tour.
[Video highlights from Radebeul, Germany].

Discovered new ways of sharing our music and project with more of you in different time zones via
monthly live events such as D R I F T and the SWU Bunker broadcasts. Expect these avenues to be incorporated into our upcoming tours and personal gigs.

It was really nice meeting everyone during the tour and looking to maybe meeting up during the next scheduled events.

I've started digitizing my back catalog of 12", Lp and CD releases. You'll soon find them in some of your favorite online shops. Until that's all sorted you can grab a few tracks here. You can look forward to new musical productions to come your way as well.

I would like to send a BIG THANK YOU to all that have joined me on this sonic journey in the past, present and future. With your support and feedback on the above past activities and my
planned endeavors, I'm sure 2011 will have it's mile stones as well.

So be safe, take care and I'm looking forward to reading you in the comments and or the timeline via
"My Social Buttons" on the side bar.

Video Vault digging & finding: Collective Behaviour on SuperBra

The song in this video "The Question" is taken from the 3 track 12 inch "Collective Behaviour" Alexi Delano aka A.D.N.Y. and I did for SuperBra: 



A. The Question
B1. Phuture Funk
B2. What Meets The Eye

How fitting, pun intended, to have this come out on SuperBra as it was produced at
Antique Boutique clothing store in N.Y.C.

That's right you read that correct. At the time the clothing store had a full music studio downstairs with class door. Two way viewing for artists and customers alike, with the option to be private of course. It was a very unique way of working. I had a blast working with Alexi and supporting Stefan Riesen to be "Super001" on SuperBra

While giving this a listen, see if you can answer the question below:




Do you know the sample in this track and where it might be from?

Inspiration flow

It's good to look within. After making that connection within, looking up closes the deal to move forward. Looking inward, skyward and beyond.

[ For my Facebook Note readers select "View Original Post" for missing content.]

Upgrading the formula

Found the time to move our music library over to the new music only computer. We've had problems in the past with moving large file groups, but found this handy little file transfer called TeraCopy. So spent the evening and some part of the day sorting mp3's and installing software.




[ the 12 skipped files are duplicates from a test run ]

Having a dedicated system for solo music projects [check the right side panel for downloads], dj performance and Sprawl music production will help move things more smoothly in the direction we want now.

We continue to keep the balance between mp3 and 12" vinyl, enjoying both formats and the flexibility it gives us.

Up next, stripping down and building up the computer system the music files came from to be our streaming/recording only system for D R I F T and Live from the SWU Bunker.


Are you running multiple systems to do different music tasks or do you find having one computer system enough for your needs?

Part of the Arsenal: Eventful and Demand it

As an Artist I'm always on the lookout for tools that can assist me with handling regions that are interested in my Music sets and Music Projects.

In comes "Eventful / Demand it" pretty effective site for handling Dates, showing the Cities / Countries of the Fans demanding you to perform in. Plus a small forum for you and your Fan Base to communicate.

It also provides a Performer Dashboard to

* Send messages to your fans
* Check your stats
* Analyze your marketing campaign

[**] Demand it widgets and Schedule widgets helping

* Plan your tour based on Demand
* Let your fans promote you
* Market and pre-sell to your demanders

As a Fan or just wanting to create a Page, you can focus on your Favorite: Events, Demands, Performers and Venues. Getting emails related to your chosen Performers Events in your hometown or for Cities you travel to the most. Pretty neat.

With the help of Twitter and Facebook Pages I've been able to get the word out about my Eventful / Demand it page. On Twitter I'm using the hashtags: #demand_dh , #demanding_sprawl and #demanding_swu for all things "Eventful / Demand it" feel free to Retweet in your network.

In this age of DIY promotion, having the right promotion tools are very important.

I think "Eventful / Demand it" if used regularly with proper social networking etiquette and with your audience understanding / involvement, can be very a effective campaign for getting Promoters, Clubs, Festivals and Open Air Events interested in your project by the show of raw numbers for their area.

Being that I don't have a proper " booking-agency " working on my behalf for my D.j/ Live Sets and Music Project [ If you know of a good one do let me know ] I would like to continue nurturing my page and would like to get some feed back on what you think about the site services:

Do you have a Page at "Eventful / Demand it"?

Do you like the interface of the site?

What would you change about the site?

Are you using the widgets for your Favorite Performers?


What do you like most about the site?

[**] send me links showing me how your using Demand it widgets and Schedule widgets.


Looking forward to your comments, links and ideas.

Sonic Seekers Tour 2010

Sonic%20Warriors%20UnitedQuantcast

[Deutsche Version unten]

ENG

In 2007, the Sonic Warriors United project (SWU) was born out of love to the roots of electronic music and the knowledge and experience of more than 20 years of artistic engagement.

It's mission is the revitalisation of something that has fallen into oblivion since about 1991 when the scenes started to separate: the fusion of Techno, EBM, Electro and Industrial dance music.
It's about thrilling a new generation of Sonic Seekers with an excellent and unique mix of Old School and New School to rediscover a long lost musical feeling which is comprised of openness and tolerance.

It's time to get beyond the narrow-mindedness of some clubs and media who present the same music styles along stereotypical categories again and again. The roots and the future of the electronic dance music underground have their foundation in intensity and diversity of rhythms and sounds, that come to life only beyond pigeonholing and preconceived opinions.

Since the existence of Sonic Warriors United, more and more people have been fascinated and won over by this project. After having accomplished the very successful Nocturnal Rhythm Tour 2009, established and new Sonic Warriors from Europe and America continue their mission. As DJs and live acts, they step up to fight for the realization of these ideas and visions on the Sonic Seekers Tour 2010.

GER

Aus tiefer Verbundenheit mit den Wurzeln elektronischer Musik, dem Wissen und den Erfahrungen aus über 20 Jahren künstlerischer Arbeit, ist 2007 das Sonic Warriors United Projekt (SWU) hervorgegangen.

Sein Ziel ist die Wiederbelebung von etwas, dass seit etwa 1991 in Vergessenheit geriet, als sich die Szenen auseinander entwickelten - die Verschmelzung von Techno, EBM, Electro und Industrial-Tanzmusik. Es geht darum, eine neue Generation von Sonic Seekers mit einem erstklassigen Mix aus Old School und New School zu begeistern und ein lang verlorenes Musikgefühl neu zu entdecken, das durch Offenheit und Toleranz geprägt ist.

Es wird Zeit über die Engstirnigkeit mancher heutiger Medien und Clubs hinauszugehen, die immer die gleichen Musikstile in stereotypen Kategorien präsentieren. Die Wurzeln und die Zukunft des Undergrounds der elektronischen Tanzmusik liegen in der Intensität und Vielfalt von Rhythmus und Sound, wie sie nur jenseits von vorgefassten Meinungen und Schubladendenken erfahrbar sind.

Seit dem Bestehen von Sonic Warriors United konnten immer mehr Leute von dem Projekt fasziniert und überzeugt werden. Nach der überaus erfolgreichen Nocturnal Rhythm Tour 2009 setzen daher bewährte und neue Sonic Warriors aus Europa und Amerika ihre Mission fort. Sie treten als DJs und Live Acts an, um auf der Sonic Seekers Tour 2010 weiter für die Umsetzung dieser Ideen und Visionen zu kämpfen.
