Deliaphonic Artist Profile // Sonic Boom

Sonic Boom

Coventry born Pete Kember, aka Sonic Boom, was a founder member of the legendary hypno-drone unit Spacemen 3. Formed in the early 1980s, they had gained a cult following by the end of the decade, and were hugely influential in the 1990s.

Spectrum, which was originally started as a side project in parallel with Spacemen 3, and later Experimental Audio Research (E.A.R.), soon took Kember in a musical direct which he was to make his own. Experimental electronic soundscapes, that both reference strong influences such as Delia Derbyshire, whilst exploring uncharted territory in the genre of electronic music. Delia herself was involved with his Vibrations EP and Continuum album before her untimely death.

It is no surprise that Kembers’ work as a music producer is more and more in demand.

Pete will be playing some new material at Deliaphonic.
