SYNTHFEST FRANCE (10 Years) – April 21st to 23nd 2023

The 10th edition of SynthFest France is just around the corner. Many instruments, many acts, many celebrities. Joachim Garraud, for example, will perform on Saturday, April 22, 2023, starting at 9 pm. The French producer and artist will return to his hometown of Nantes for this exceptional evening. Joachim Garraud will present the film “Modular California Vibes” as a preview.

“Modular California Vibes” is a documentary about the creation of electronic music aboard his mobile solar studio, where four producers record four original tracks for four days in four exceptional locations, all thanks to the sun. The screening of this film, unique in France, will be followed by a discussion and then a concert.

In addition, SYNTHFEST FRANCE 2023 offers a grandiose and sheer unique program. Worth participating – and definitely recommendable for all synthesizer enthusiasts, as well as for all friends of electronic music.

“Es genügt, einen Ton schön zu spielen” sagte der Komponist Arvo Pärt im Jahre 2005. Diese Aussage ist ebenso einfach wie ich auch exzellent: Es braucht kein Meer an Tönen, denn entscheidend ist der Klang. Dass so mancher Vintage-Synthesizer der 70er und 80er Jahre teils unerreicht hochwertige Klänge liefert, steht außer Frage. Doch tatsächlich leben wir “heute” in einer nahezu perfekten Zeit. Einerseits hat man – mehr oder weniger – noch Zugriff auf die Vintage Analogen, andererseits wird auch bei Neugeräten die wichtige Komponente des hochwertigen Klanges wieder zunehmend berücksichtigt. Doepfer, Cwejman,, MacBeth, Moog, GRP, Studio Electronics, COTK, John Bowen und andere Hersteller bauen hervorragende Synthesizer, die den “Klassikern” in nichts nachstehen. All diesen (alten wie neuen) “großartigen” Instrumenten ist Great Synthesizers gewidmet. _________________________________________________________ In 2005 composer Arvo Pärt said: “Playing one tone really well is enough”. In other words, it is sufficient to play one tone 'beautifully'. I agree with that. All musical efforts are focused on the sound itself. Although I studied classical music (piano and drums), it’s the electronic sound that inspires me. Synthesizers are the epitome of new sounds and exciting tonal spheres. Today, many companies produce high-quality - excellent! - synthesizers: Doepfer, Cwejman, MacBeth, Moog, GRP,, COTK, Studio Electronics, John Bowen and others. It's their products I'm really interested in ... apart from Vintage Synthesizers, which I have been collecting for 20 years. Subsequent to our former websites Bluesynths and Blogasys, Peter Mahr and I have now created GreatSynthesizers. We hope you like it.
