SONAR is a new Post-Minimal-Rock band from Switzerland. The name stands for Sonic Architecture, describing their intention of creating musical atmospheres, polyrhythmic soundscapes and highly structured aural spaces.
Sonar's music is played live without any sequencers, loops or computers using a minimum amount of equipment: 2 guitars, a bass guitar, 3 small amplifiers und a basic drum kit. No effects are used (except a touch of reverb and tremolo) to keep the music as direct and immediate as possible. The band does not consider itself a collection of soloists, rather a small chamber (groove-)orchestra, where only collective efforts matter.
The instantly recognizable sound of Sonar is due to the special tuning of the guitars and the bass guitar to tritones, an interval sometimes called the devil in music. A large proportion of the music is played using only the natural harmonics of these two notes, thereby creating a harmonically ambiguous musical microcosmos that the group calls "tritone harmonics". Incredible live - this is visionary torch-bearing music performed by an exceptionally talnted outfit.
