What you'll do

You will be treated to a veritable synth paradise: access to a rotating list of 20 of the most classic vintage synthesizers set up in one place for you to play and enjoy! We'll ask your familiarity level with synths in general and whether you're interested in playing or recording. Based on that, we can custom-tailor your experience to your level of expertise and comfortability. We encourage you to bring your own headphones, however we have some high-quality ones onsite if you need them. We also encourage collaborative sonic exploration so we provide you with a Y-splitter cable in order for you to play with a friend! Instead of the 'guided tour' approach, we promote a more 'hands-on' or autodidact approach, which keeps the emphasis on the fun! Our knowledgable staff are attentive to every need level, whether beginner or advanced, and attend to your sonic needs accordingly. Here's an example list of the classic vintage synthesizers we have in a given experience. (we regularly rotate our synth*ventory to keep the choices exciting!)

Peter

My name is Peter Venuto and I'm a musician, artist and curator of Synth Palace: a vintage synth playroom that's taken over 25 years to create. Synth Palace offers visitors unique access to a Noah's Ark of vintage synthdom, which would otherwise be relegated to expensive recording studios. Coming from an early background working with music therapists in Toronto, I made a vow to address the need for everyday music therapy that's fun: providing public access to Synth Palace's collection of over 100 synthesizers is my response to this need. In addition to my own musical entity SLURP, I've toured with renowned indie rockers, Deerhoof, and was commissioned by David Bowie in 2008 to raise funds for the highline in NYC. My music has recently been included in Alex Ball's recent synth doc: "Land of the Rising Sound" receiving over 275k views.
