Sonic Animation (or sonicanimation) are an Australian dance/techno musical group. They came to popular attention in 1999 with the release of their track "Theophilus Thistler". Other noted releases since then include "I'm a DJ", "Super Showbiz Star", "This is not a Love Poem" and "Get Up".
Their live acts are noted for the two furry suited "TechoTubbies" (known as Robert Roley and Theophilus Thistler) at each gig. These suits are worn by two fans selected by the band via their web site and Chris Wheatley's internet mailing list.
Sonic Animation announced their break-up in mid-2005 with the release of their greatest hits / rarities album Eleven, which was followed by the hugely successful Bugger Off tour. They made their last festival appearance at the Big Day Out in 2006 (Australian shows only).
In 2013, after an almost 6-year hiatus, sonicanimation is releasing their latest full-length album "Once More from the Bottom" featuring the single ‘I will be twisted.’ The single's video clip was created with submitted footage taken by fans on their cell phones at the 2012 Homebake festival.
