BI – O

SONICrider (Jurgen Winkel) is a producer, musician, artist & performer from the South of The Netherlands.

Jurgen started as a musician – playing the machinery – of the band BLIND an underground electro-rock band during the late eighties and nineties.

Blind Live Tour 1994

Beside being member of BLIND Jurgen started a mobile 24 channel studio making live recordings for (inter)national bands; his passion for sound engineering was born which is still a skill that can be heard in nowadays releases.

Currently creating electronic music based on analog sounds producing all kinds of styles – always with an experimental/industrial touch: during a performance the audience will be guided through a world of sound (& vision when possible).

The main sounds sources are modular instruments, DIY controllers/instruments and hardware. These “instruments” are highly suitable creating sound (and scores) for movies, visuals and art projects.
