On alien instruments, together with an artificial intelligence that sings to us, we play epic and orchestral music inspired by gaming and science fiction worlds. We sound like a synergy of film music like Hans Zimmer, and electronic sounds like Kraftwerk, the rocking influences we have from Mike Oldfield - and together it results in a symphonic, electronic and rocking fusion - together it's SYNTHONIE!

03.04.2020 German Comic Con Home Edition @ Livestream UNBELIEVABLE! Since several planets have now been infected, more livestreams were implemented. We were allowed to play for the German Comic Con and banged into the Top10 of Twitch when we played, and our live chat viewers shot up from 400 to over 2000 guests. Unbelievable! THANKS German Comic Con, you are a wonderful planet! Here is the video:
15.05.2020 Talking Circles von Relate @ Livestream The befriended spaceship Relate asked us to give an interview via livestream on their platform. We were even able to surprise the audience with a new song, because Captain Patrick entered into a collaboration with us. As a guest on the SYNTHONIE he enchanted with his voice "Once Upon a Time" from us.

August 2020 (TBA) Gamescom @ Livestream THIS IS GONNA BE EPIC! The largest planet in the universe is also affected by the Corona, but those who fight against it like we do! And so this giant planet, which is actually like a sun for us, joins forces. We will play for them, but we don't know what happens next. Either we'll burn up, or be catapulted through a wormhole into unbelievable worlds!!!!!!!!!
...more are follow
2019 was a special year for us! While SYNTHONIE was founded in December 2014, it took us until January 2019 to realize our first professional appearance.
The way there was hard, but as our musician-colleague friend br>"Andy Edge from NOIR/ZERO" says in a song: "Can't Stop Won't Stop"
And we live this and are happy to pass it on!
25.01.2019 15 MINUTEN KÖLN @ Studiobühne Cologne

You can support us if you visit us on a gig at a convention. And also far away from Gamescom and book fairs, you can support us by loot our spacesuits (t-shirts) and our music (CD's & download code). By the way, if we meet you with a t-shirt from us at our gigs, there will be a logbook entry on your spacesuit from us :)
But we hope that you will follow our journey! Because without SYN's there is no SYNTHONIE!
We are also on Patreon (there are backstage stuff, special videos, and special loot): Check it out!
