The Rise Of The Synths is the story of a group of music composers from different countries who in the mid 2000's, unknown to each other but with the help of Myspace, spontaneously created an underground music scene known as Synthwave. It was the first time the Internet gave birth to a real music scene. Synthwave can be described as music that uses an electronic modern composition heavily inspired by the soundtracks of cinema, TV and video games from 1980's pop culture.
