About Simulakrum Lab

Simulakrum Lab is a synthwave/retrowave music project created by Paolo Prevosto, composer and sound designer.

The concept deals with advanced research technology matters, by means of 70s sound paradigms, inspired by electronic music pioneers such as Goblin, Moroder, Kraftwerk, Tangerine Dreams and John Carpenter.

What makes this project outstanding is the realization of tracks based almost exclusively on original analog synthetizers from the 70s, Moog, Korg and Prophet 5, avoiding as much as possible the use of emulated computer synthetizers.

The core of Simulakrum Lab is the balance between old school electronic music and groundbreaking future sound engineering.
