Bio | "From Ambient to New Dark Wave"

Deep Imagination from Germany is the solo project of Thorsten Sudler-Mainz (*05.04.1963 in Frankfurt am Main), whose productions have been released by the renowned Munich record company BSC Music on the Prudence label since 2004.

Thorsten Sudler-Mainz started out in 1982 as a drummer, later as a guitarist and singer in regional gothic bands in the Frankfurt am Main area, before recording his first complete productions himself in his own 8-track recording studio in the 1990s.

In the noughties he appeared with elaborately produced progressive-ambient productions and as co-founder of the Cologne project "Art Of Infinity", founded in 1996. In 2005, he started his solo project and has released six albums and various singles and EPs with DEEP IMAGINATION on the cult label BSC Music/Prudence.

From the instrumental ambient of the first album "Scapes" (2005) to the art rock-influenced "My Silent Celebration" (2020), he changed the instrumentation and style of DEEP IMAGINATION again and again, but always remained true to his electronic approach.

With the current work "The Children of the Moon" (2023), he presents an atmospheric darkwave-gothic album and thus perhaps his most authentic work.

Medially, Thorsten Sudler-Mainz presents the music of DEEP IMAGINATION with lovingly produced video clips in which he appears together with his guest musicians.
