Since 2005, Belgian artist Bernard Zwijzen has adopted the name Sonmi451 for use when releasing his music under various record labels.

Originating in David Mitchell’s Cloud Altas, Sonmi451 is the name belonging to a Slave robot from a distant future.

Bernard manages to beautifully blend minimal, soundscape-laden atmospheric electronics together to create something that I can only describe as totally unique.

You should check out his limited edition album titled Ruis over at Bandcamp, or his free EP, The Quiet EP.
