Interview with the artist
Soniferous is the solo artist - David Jones. David fell in love with electronic music at a young age, from genres such as ambient to trance, hard trance, psytrance to drum and bass, hardcore, house, hardstyle... you name it, he explored it.
David, what does Soniferous mean and why have you chosen that name?
"The literal meaning of Soniferous is, 'One who conveys or produces sound.' All things produce sound on some level. Everything has a vibration or song - even plants! I chose this name because it represents and encompasses all sound and I don't want to be restricted to only one genre."
So what made you get into producing music?
"I started out 11 years ago by making hip hop beats with a friend from school, it was a lot of fun, more so than school. We made a demo CD and people liked it. My friend went on exploring his passion for hip hop music, while I explored and fell in love with Electronic Dance Music. Producing music has always been my refuge and creative way of expression."
What are your goals and ambitions with music?
"It's always been a hobby of mine, but in recent times I have decided to really see how far I can take it. I would love to travel with it, one of my dreams is to one day be able to make music of the highest quality, and invoke emotions in people of natural ecstasy, bliss and joy. I'd like to push the boundaries of human capability within the realm of sound and how it can affect the human system in positive ways. I believe it can be one of the ways to treat many human conditions and I know just about anything is possible."
What do you have to say to fans?
"Thankyou for your support, it really means a lot, especially those who have been through so much with me in the past to get me going in the right direction, those who uplifted me and believed in me, those who stuck by me in my tough times, you know who you are, to those out there with any dream or ambition, I just say there's no reason you can't claim that dream you have, you can do it."
