Sonic Democracy: Through Our Eyes



[Applause] [Applause] we begin every year in Sainik democracy by finding our members and seeing their individual skills to give them a partner from vocalist to guitar and bass players keys and synth players even down to our technicians each member in Sonic is individually set to their own place in our family [Applause] many members in Sainik have not only played one instrument but have also learned a second instrument just to have that extra knowledge and experience behind them this year marks the 9th year of Sonic democracy and with our continuous growth in popularity the release of two studio albums and years of performing in the William Dawson theatre as well as being an opener for both Neverest and Marianas Trench sonic has grown to length way beyond just being a class and with constant support from friends and family as well as support from community and DSB one it helps us grow and learn more effectively and with every year that passes we strive for our hard work professionalism and creativity what is sonic democracy to you I think it's the representation of people who want to accomplish something that most people might be too scared to try to accomplish so getting a group of people together that have a passion for something in our case it's music but I think sporting teams are the same and finding out ways to work together I think that's step one how do you work together to accomplish this very complicated goal and then what are the necessary tips steps to get there drew sonic democracy for me sonic democracy is figuring out that path to get there working together it's different every year people are different every year the songs are different the approach is different but in the end it's the same and that is a group of people young people who shouldn't be able to do this but they always do and that's the coolest thing [Applause] each member in Sonic from past and present have their own unique stories to tell and this band not only teaches us but also gives us lasting memories that we can cherish the rest of our lives being a member of Sonic is not like any limit to us we see each other that's family my name is Nicholas poss-eye I sing for them professionally kind of in the past three years but this is my first year at Sonic democracy so uh that's fun and one of three brothers and the third brother to be in this band so that's

drums since grade seven but I took for your break and then I just sort of to see you again so I most enjoy playing a jazzy kind of drum style because it's a nice change from just the hard frog kind of

fourth year now and I've been managing for three years mr. Firman offered me a position as a lighting technician because I was interested in the music business quote originally but I ended up in Sonic as a technician and then eventually joined the music business one second I have always loved music and mr. Firman definitely heightened that love but I'm not a musician and III ended up sigh I never expected to end up gravitating towards a business role but it allowed me to be around music all the time while accomplishing something great without just like sitting around with a bunch of musicians next to mr. Pro main I've already started my own company managing artists populist music and I plan to continue that until the day I die at this point most of my life is spent with music I will with music I spent my time with musicians yeah it's taken over my life my love of music basically so the future I saw Sonic perform in grade 7 and thought that it was like really interesting I was more interested in the lighting and actual play as most the tech game I guess I like music that's really my name's Lewbert democracy this is my first year I'm pursuing a technical position because I would like to enhance my video editing skills and my knowledge about technical video edit here therefore my friends for their YouTube channels but other than that I've just downloaded video editing in their person Brenda Lucia's brother I'm kalisto I am a technician a lighting technician this is my first year here I like lights a lot I think they make the show look really cool and I wanted to get involved in that basically watch some sonic shows the lighting was cool and it'd be cool if I did that too I like art I draw and stuff I am a technician I have been doing this for 3 years I've always really enjoyed like videos and my dad was a photographer so there's a lot of like experience with that so I was already exposed to a lot of camera heavy stuff so it's my fifth year of high school after this I'm going away to school out of town hopefully pursue the career I want and actually get geography going already kind of started my own stuff personally for video editing and such as well as a lot of stuff for Sonic and I think I could probably think from name for that 100% this is Sonic democracy through our eyes you
