Sonar is the name of a Belgian musical group, combining rhythmic noise, soundscapes, and industrial music. It was formed as a side-project of noise artists Dirk Ivens and Patrick Stevens.

Members / History[edit]

Sonar was founded by Dirk Ivens and employed the help of Patrick Stevens in 1996. The aim of Ivens's and Stevens's project was to "remind [one] to working machines, the soundscapes to droning planes." [1]. Both Ivens and Stevens have continued work on Sonar to this date, but also devote time to their other projects. Ivens is most well known for his solo-effort, Dive, as well as his stint in Klinik and Stevens for his project Hypnoskull. Please see the individual pages for more information on both artists.
