there is a reason for this. i want to know if you actually listen any more. so, no judgement, tell me the last synthesis album you listened to.

This again?

I listen to a lot of music. A lot of it is synth-based and some is literally 100% synth with no vocals or acoustic instruments or samples.

The last several albums I listened to, in approximate reverse order:

Portal 2 soundtrack, volume 1 (100% synth)
a couple of my own albums (100% synth)
Barton/Bayard/Moody Start From Silence (100% synth improv)
Da Chip, a compilation of chiptune covers of Daft Punk (100% synth)
Katamari Damacy soundtrack (many synth-based and synth-heavy songs, but also cheesy Shibuya-kei)
Rustie, Glass Swords, "post-dubstep," very synth-heavy
Fields of the Nephilim, Elizium, goth rock with minor synth bits
This Morn' Omina, Les Passages Jumeaux: 25-33, tribal industrial, lots of samples and some synths
Madjid Khaladj Anthology of Iranian Rhythms, 100% acoustic hand drums
Maschinenfest 2007 disc 1, industrial, very synth and sample heavy
Miles Davis, Tutu 80s jazz with surprising amounts of synth
Caterina Barbieri, Patterns of Consciousness, 100% synth
Tears for Fears, Songs from the Big Chair (a healthy amount of synths)
Fubuki Daiko, Zanshin - Leaving the Heart Behind (taiko ensemble, no synths)
Burning Tapes, Black Lake, 100% synth

Beaubourg — Vangelis

Atypical of Mr. Papathanassiou. Excellent dance music for those of us whose concept of dance does not necessarily involve rhythm, motion, or similarly overdone concepts.

What’s your definition of “synthesist album”?

Sometimes what I listen to is nothing but synthesis, even if it sounds like there are acoustic sounds in there.

Sometimes what I listen to is synth-heavy but also includes some acoustics/electroacoustics in it, and/or vocals.

I rarely listen to things that don’t have synthesizers, but I do certainly have that kind of music in my collection (and still like most of it). I’ve always just been more enamored by synths.

60 days came and went I suppose. Guy just wants to know...

In my case it's the Coil drafts from way back that got released in the last couple of years. I've got them all in a playlist and listening in random order. If this is not 'synthesist' I don't know what is...

I just think it's great that every time he promises not to judge us. That's really cool!

90% of my listening is all or manly synth. Cheers!

someone should open a thread where members could list the bits they listen to, over time, giving dasher a long term idea of peoples listening choices...

I was about to merge threads, but the old thread had a poll. Different enough to warrant a separate thread, I suppose.
