Meet the Arp Odyssey : SYNTHFEST 2015 - Teaser for India's First Synth Event

Published on Jul 14, 2015 SynthFest

"When Bob Moog introduced the world to the Minimog D, he had a clear picture in his mind – create an electronic musical instrument which sounds beyond the realm of it's acoustic bretheren. An instrument that used only electricity to produce sound. Sounds that would power electronic music for generations to come and create new genres of music that were both unimaginable and outright
radical at the time.

Synthesizers have since been used on an unfathomable number of hit records ranging from grimey hiphop, pounding psychadelic trance, dirty acid house to facemelting drum 'n' bass, ultramelodic
synthpop and cosmic ambient journeys. Thanks to popular artists like Brian Eno, Kraftwerk, Daft Punk, Keith Emerson, Jordan Rudes and Georgio Moroder, synthesizers of various makes and types
started becoming a household name and ruled the minds and speakers of music enthusists and musicians alike.

45 years later, we want to celebrate what synthesizers have been to us - a means to communicate our music in a way that wouldn't quite be possible without them. We want to celebrate their sound,
their quirks, their secrets, their analogness, their digitalness, their madness and uncanny ability to make people smile.

We call this celebration – Synthfest.

Two days of playing, tweaking, patching, filtering, sequencing, resonating, syncing and best of all – enjoying synthesizers to our heart's content. Great synths from the likes of Roland, Moog, Waldorf,
Korg, Arp and more will be present to make these two days impossible to forget and full of sonic ferocity.

Music by Akshay Rajpurohit
