Why is Jazz, where is Pop, what is Nu-Soul, for whom is Hip Hop? No artist should ever be chained to a single sterile category of genre, capable only of identifying the shelves, on pain of oblivion or, worse, indifference ".

“Synth Louis Ensemble”
directed by Luca Proietti

Synth Louis Ensemble was born as a tribute to electronic music, synthesizers and more generally to electronic musical instruments in all their forms.
The repertoire ranges from classic pieces revisited electronically, in a sort of homage to Wendy Carlos and her "Switched On Bach" - the album that made many appreciate the synthesizer as a full-fledged musical instrument - up to original compositions close to the most current trends, passing through pop songs, also revisited in electronic form.
Coordinator of the Synth Louis project is Luca Proietti: "One of the main purposes of this ensemble is to highlight the played part, often not very present in many electronic music performances"
