Beckett: Synthwave & Talkbox with a backdrop of 80s beats. It’s Pretty Awesome!
The music of Beckett is inspired by the movie soundtracks and lifestyles of the 1980s. It’s a clear love for the electronic palette of synthesizers, drum machines and studio electric guitars infused with Miami sunsets, L.A Neon and the glamour of 80s fashion.
Many ‘Synthwave’ or ‘Retrowave’ artists, present their work as the ‘sound’ of the 80s, the right textures, the wonderful recreation of a timbre. My approach is to try and recreate the ‘feel’ of the 80s, a nostalgic point of view that will hopefully help people of the time remember a moment, or people outside of the time, capture a glimpse of how melody and production used to be more important than what perfume a singer has labeled after them. Precision and clarity of production entangled with definition and purpose in composition are key elements I strive to achieve in all my synthwave works.
