The imagination, because we don’t know many things about Soonbe. The artist prefers to stay in the blur and pertinently confesses that “when people know where you’re from or who you are they often create instant associations. Placing you nice and neatly into a little box that can be hard to get out of. I prefer this project being more of an entity that anyone can tap into without initial preconceptions blocking the path from the start. There’s also a great sense of freedom when no one really knows who you are. You are less afraid to fail or say what you really want to. If anyone was persistent enough to find out who I am, the bread crumbs are there to follow.”
Four months ago, “Nemini Parco” was released on Soundcloud: the non-stop 22-minute track is composed of 9 deep and mystical parts. There is clearly something spiritual in Soonbe‘s sounds, especially in tracks such as “Ouroboros I” and “Ouroboros II”.
Soonbe, as a reminder that I will soon be dead.
“Tanuki” was the first track that was made under the name of Soonbe but a new version was recorded at the end of the project. “Tanuki (She Said)” comes with new vocals that are, by the way, quite kinky and sexual. The artist just took some sentences from girls and boys he met during this period and the result is just scheming and disturbing. Soonbe also shot and edited a video for the track.
