What makes this companion release possible is the documentary behind it all, which was primarily funded by an expansive crowdfunding effort. Director Ivan Castell and producer Javip Moreno are traveling the world interviewing both pioneering synth musicians and the artists inspired by them —  Drive artists Electric Youthand College; Miami Nights 1984; Com Truise; Dance with the Dead; Maethelvin; The Midnight; Betamaxx; Futurecop!, Kristine, OGRE, Carpenter Brut, Lazerhawk, Perturbator, Mitch Murder, and so many more.

Castell and Moreno are also interviewing music journalists, tour organizers, and others involved in the scene. For more information, read up on the documentary and its scope. It’s an inspiring endeavor.

ABOUT THE RISE OF THE SYNTHS
The film is a travel in time towards the roots of a worldwide grass-root music scene known as Synthwave, an irresistible blend of modern electronic composition with 80s pop culture’s nostalgia, that over the last two years has transformed from a whisper on selected internet hubs, to an ever-growing scene, expanding rapidly as we speak. Accounting millions of plays on social media, devoted fans are legion, but nobody in the mass media knows about them.

Thousands of synthwave composers around the world are living out double-lives. Away from their normal everyday life they spend another half-life behind a faceless musical avatar, creating and uploading their own renditions of 80’s-styled film scores, sharing them with the world – surging the wave. They belong to an endless army of watchers for the master’s legacy: the sound that Edgar Froese, Paul Haslinger, Giorgio Moroder and John Carpenter created in the late 70s.

A time travel into the universe of creating sounds. A love letter to human fascination and the collective memories of a universe that never existed.
