The synth culture lived through its resurrection in 2011 thanks to Drive. The music genre has been around since the end of the 80s, though. It accompanied us in arcade video games, old B-rated films, and legends such as Blade Runner. The Rise of the Synths is a music documentary by Iván Castello with the voice of John Carpenter, a world-famous director (The Thing), guiding us through and showcasing the greatest musicians and artists of the genre. Names such as Carpenter Brut, Power Glove, Perturbator and many more will introduce themselves surrounded by a neon glow. From where did they draw inspiration and what’s the reason the style is becoming increasingly popular across the cultural sector? Sit down comfortably, a great colourful and rhythmic ride that shook the music industry is about to begin.
