DEEP IMAGINATION is the solo project of the German electronic musician Thorsten Sudler-Mainz. Born in 1963, the german ambient artist lives in the Taunus close to his home town Frankfurt. In 1982 he started his musical career as a drummer and later as a guitarist and singer in several bands. In the early 90's he began to write his own songs in his home studio, to which he contributed all the instruments himself. Together with the Cologne sound engineer and producer Thorsten Rentsch 1996, he founded the german electronic music project Art Of Infinity and in 2004 they signed a record deal with the German label BSC Music/Prudence.
Since 2005 Thorsten Sudler-Mainz is active as a solo artist with DEEP IMAGINATION and published three albums so far, which are characterized by electronic and atmospheric ambient sounds: "Scapes" (2005), "Gemstones" (2008) and "Awareness" (2010). As a self confessed admirer of Pink Floyd he names ambient, art rock, gothic, heavenly voices, trip-hop and electronic music as influences, from which he developed his very own musical signature over the years.
As DEEP IMAGINATION he’s performed concerts at venues including “Satzvey Castle Festival” and “Zeiss Planetarium Bochum”. In 2011 the EP „Live at Electronic Circus Festival“ was released with recordings from the Bielefeld “Movie”. Music from the most successful album to date “Awareness” has been available on Lufthansa Radio on international flights.
The maxi singles “Dancing with ghosts” and "Carefully Kept Secrets (EP)", were released in 2015 and 2016. Here Thorsten Sudler-Mainz combined atmospheric electronic elements with voice, guitar and percussion for the first time. The fourth album "Carefully Kept Secrets" (2017) is an ambient production, spiced with Pink Floydian elements and ethereal choir, with which DEEP IMAGINATION takes its sound to a new, complex level.
