Our world is so diverse, so rich, and yet so centralized when it comes to popular music. This often results in prejudices from one side (the younger generation) or the other (The more traditional music lovers).
Synaptic Machines believes all music styles can be highly appreciated by all. It is all a question of facilitating the discovery.
Their mission is to open the eyes, or more precisely the ears, of all music generations to the wonders of World Music using modern production techniques. A Way maybe, for a Dubstep fanatic to develop a taste for Indian traditional rhythms, or a salsa dancer to get into EDM…
In all, Synaptic Machines crystallizes a musical vision where modernity meets tradition.
The album “Elevation” is composed of ten breath-taking tracks, that explore various realms of traditional music and covers them with a sparkling blanket of electronic sounds.
"Elevation" will be released August 1st, 2013. It will be available as a physical CD or as a download package on the central website of Synaptic Machines (www.synaptic-machines.com
) and on Bandcamp (synaptic-machines.bandcamp.com/).
In the coming weeks, it will be also available at all major online distributors (i-tunes, Amazon, CD Baby, Spotify etc…).
Enjoy The Voyage!
