Utilizing digital interfaces most traditionally used in the EDM genre (i.e. ProTools & Digital Performer), Bonne utilizes this technology to create & perform an entirely unique form of rock/pop music. From layered drum opuses to "guitar" solos to cinematic orchestral compositions to arena rock drums, Bonne’s unique sound comes from combining these original and electronic compositions with LIVE instrumentation both in the studio and on stage.
