The Rise of the Synths

   2019    Art
What is Synthwave? An irresistible blend of nostalgia and music; of creative processes and cultural references; of re-appropriation and legitimate creation. Is a random revival or an emerging cultural phenomenon?

And the microbiome, the bacteria living in our gut, plays a great role in all this.
