The art of syntablism

by Kypski

Synthesizer + Turntablism = 'Syntablism' – because of this new and distinctive way of performing, Kypski has reinvented his art and the turntable as his instrument. His mission is to perfect the technique and introduce this unique musical style to a broader audience. Live sets are improvisational electronic beat excursions, with sounds and music created in the moment – literally 'from scratch'.
