Brazilian synthesist Marcus Padrini, who frequently shares live performance videos via his Youtube channel, has released a new album, Synth Jams 1.
Synth Jams I is a compilation of tracks recorded live, using analog and digital synthesizers and drum machines. The songs were created from improvisations with different instruments and were captured practically the moment after their creation.
Padrini notes a variety of influences, including Vangelis, Jean-Michel Jarre, Erik Norlander and Kebu, but says that ‘The tracks of the album do not have a common style, but they share a main element: the sounds created with synthesizers.”
