Syndromeda (anagram of "The synthesizer syndrome of Andromeda") is the Belgian composer Danny Budts. Danny was born in 1958 at Wilrijk, Belgium. Always interested in music he learned to play himself acoustic guitar at the age of 14. At the age of 18 he was playing the lead-guitar in a local rock-coverband, called Cold Turkey. In the mid-seventies he also discovered EM. His first acquaintance was Ricochet of Tangerine Dream. He soon learned to know the music of Klaus Schulze, Jean-Michel Jarre, Vangelis, etc.
In 1979 he built himself a modular synth, a Formant, and also bought a simple monophonic preset-synth a Roland SH-2000. Now, more than 30 years later, he has a complete Midi-studio with different synths, samplers, effect-processors, vocoders, mixing & recording equipment, etc, and he feels that he is no longer limited by his instruments to make the music he wants. His studio "Sin-Syn" is located at the back of his house. During composing he can overview his garden. That also inspires him a lot. He thinks it's very important to get feedback from the outer world: "Sometimes other people push you back with your feet on the ground, and that's where you belong." His music is very uncomplicated, it creates itself, he doesn't think much about composing it. His songs describe what's in his heart, his mind, about his mood at the time of making it, moments he wants to keep and to share with others. Sometimes his music is pleasant, sometimes it's melancholic or even sad. But when he feels really bad, (if it happens), he will avoid making music. He will only reflect the positive moments: "You can't share your music with someone if it makes him feel bad." He will only give his listeners the good moments, and let them remain with positive feelings.
His music is strongly inspired by the Teutonic "Berliner Schule", but Danny is not afraid of using deep atmospheric soundscapes. He tries to combine these 2 musical forms to produce his own sound. He also believes music is very important for mankind: "Music is one of the oldest things on earth - listen to nature, you can hear music - even in the cosmos there is music. People have always been involved with music, but we must use it rightly, only in a positive way." He believes music can heal a lot of things. Always keeping this in mind he will continue making his music.
