Synthwave Art

Synthwave College Real Hero

Recently re-watched the movie ‘Drive’  I love this movie on so many levels.

The sound track is also one of the best ever in my opinion. One of my favourite scenes is the drive down the aquaduct with Carey Mulligan falling in love with Ryan Gosling. It’s a sweet scene and the music fits perfectly.
The song playing is College & Electric Youth – real Human Being.
The majority of the soundtrack (Mostly by Cliff Martinez) is heavy electric synths and atmospheric beats. His music is always evocative, and perfectly fitted to each scene.

This has however, led me to delve head first into more synthwave music.

The retro-futuristic sound of synthwave has really hit home with me. It takes me back to the 80’s… a time when the future was exciting… something to look forward to… a place with fast cars, neon lights and mirrored shades.

Okay, so the 80’s had a weird view of the future, but through movies, cartoons, music and games it instilled wonder and excitement in me as a child.

Sadly, the real future hasn’t quite lived up to the promise.

In my retro-future inspired state, I have created Synthwave inspired Soundwave art of ‘Real Human Being’. Hope you all like it.
