"The Witch King (1st Movement) "Review
The Synthetic dream foundation is a music project formed in late 2006 by film music composer, Brett Branning. Brett is also the composer of the neo-classical music band, Abandoned Toys and the world fusion, ambient music project Ephemeral Mists.
The project has collaborated with various female singers from the industrial and symphonic metal scenes, including Hannah Fury, Marcela Bovio (Stream of Passion) and Summer Bowman (The machine in the garden)", Susan Siren, and Lauren Krothe. The Synthetic Dream Foundation has also performed remixes for many ebm, synthpop, and industrial bands including Suicide Commando, System Syn (metropolis records), Grendel, XP8 (infacted records in Germany), and In Strict Confidence.
The band has been booked for some of the biggest goth industrial events in the world, including headlining the 2008 edition of Goth Con. In addition to their three solo albums, TSDF has had tracks appear on several compilations in the industrial music scene including Cryonica Tanz vol. 5 (cryonica records) and Cyberlab vol. 5 (Alfa Matrix records), and Odyssey of rapture vol.1 (mythical records).As it starts out with “In The Realms Of The Unreal,” atmosphere becomes king right away on this orchestra-meets-electronic combination that really grips the listening ear right away. With an eerie soundtrack-esque opening that pulses along like a hot track from Nine Inch Nails, the low-end synth & static is mixed in perfectly throughout this intense opening song. The equally eerie chorus of voices takes over throughout the song; they continually build upon themselves in theatrical waves of excellent vocal tones and haunting delivery.
