Synthetic Classics: because it's possible

What is 'Synthetic Classics'?

Synthetic Classics is an informal recording label under which I release my own performances of classical and related music by other composers. I do not pretend for one moment that a synthesised performance can match 'the real thing' but it is a fascinating project nevertheless.

I've performed a fairly eclectic selection of works on synthesisers over the years. You can listen to some of them here. Please feel free to download and share any of them ... just right-click and select Save Audio As....
