Sonarpilot is Basel based musician and producer Michael Moppert.
Growing up musically in the 1970s, Sonarpilot was fascinated by innovative artists from Bowie, Pink Floyd and Roxy Music to the electronic output of pioneers like Tangerine Dream, Kraftwerk and Jean-Michel Jarre. With the explosion of Punk and New Wave, Sonarpilot began to make music himself. He acquired an electric guitar, a 4-track tape recorder, a slightly battered TR 606 drum machine and a Korg MS-20 analog synth, and started to work. Main influences at that time were british synth-pop bands such as Yazoo, Bronski Beat, New Order, Heaven 17 and the Eurythmics as well as more experimental artists such as Brian Eno and Laurie Anderson.
In the 1980’s Sonarpilot opened a recording studio and produced local bands while working at night on his own material when the studio wasn’t booked. During this time he began to use extensively digital technology, samplers and synthesizers. Towards the end of the 1980’s his sound was losing the typical song-structure, tracks became longer, increasingly technoid, ambient and experimental.
In the early 90’s Sonarpilot got involved with a successful start-up that kept him busy for the next 15 years. In 2008, he finally left the corporate world, grabbed his old guitar from the attic, bought a pile of computer based sound equipment and, as if welcoming an old friend back into his life, began again making music. “Mothership” is his first release after his return to the musical universe.
