These original synthesizer sightings are here to remind you that the synth renaissance is still in full swing. Synth music was considered an ancient relic of the 80s until very recently. With the retro revolution, everything old became new again, including the synthesizer.

The merits of electronic music, and of this particular instrument, are debatable, but what isn't debatable is the creativeness and ingenuity of all of these original synthesizer sightings. There are playable synthesizer shirts, synthesizers made out of old smartphones and even synthesizer-inspired pieces of jewelry. Even if you aren't a fan of electronic music, the creativity of these pieces alone is enough to grab and hold your attention until you come around.
