7 Synths is a solo project of keyboardist, composer & producer Kaspars Tobis. Since 2000, he has been a member of the rock-band Dzelzs Vilks (Iron Wolf in Latvian), which has been one of the most successful alternative bands in Latvia for more than two decades. Apart from programming and playing keyboards in Dzelzs Vilks, he has been collaborating with musicians in Latvia and abroad, to name a few - Brainstorm, Mumiy Troll, Ainars Mielavs and others. Kaspars has also co-authored music for several theatre performances as well as for contemporary dance performances by Olga Zitluhina. In 2001 his first solo album Zenithsign was released. His second album Concert for 7 Synthesizers was released in 2013 and has received the Latvian Music Recording Award, Zelta Mikrofons as the Best Electronic Album 2013. In relation to this record, media often calls him the Latvian Jean Michel Jarre. The artist himself explains that the project 7 Synths takes the feeling of working in an electronic studio to the stage while performing both prepared compositions & creating sequences in real time. In his performances Kaspars uses four to nine digital & analog synthesisers & different devices and the combination is never the same."
