This composition reflects the Influence of 1970s synthesizer soundtracks on the renowned musician Raunchmaninoff. The artist explicitly cites Jean-Michel Jarre and Vangelis as the "great synthbros" of the 20th century.
In his first video of late October 2010l, Raunchmaninoff uses archival footage of San Francisco, California shot in early 1941 to reflect the scale of modernity. This pastiche reflects the long history of amateur film and it's resurgence in the current era.
In a recent radio interview Raunchmaninoff reflected: "It's like we've seen cities grow for the last one-hundred years, and don't remember a time before they existed. What's up with that? and wouldn't it be sick-as-shit to have a Vangelis style synth track behind it?"
Raunchmaninoff is the artist-in-residence at the East Hollywood Institute for High-Fives.
