Minimal Synth is a form of Minimal Wave in which the synthesizer is the dominant musical instrument.
Minimal Synth releases were mostly put out from late '70s to middle '80s, they have remained underground all this time and were obviously never aimed for MTV/VH1 play. The genre is characterised by dark and moody tones. It has a bleak stripped down sound, with instrumentation consisting generally of raw analog synths, a pulsating drum beat, and cold vocals. This same sort of music without the vocals is also referred to as Minimal Electronics.
Minimal Synth records tend to show a DIY quality, some are pretty experimental when compared to other forms of pop music. The overarching genre of most early '80s synth pop is New Wave, the same applies for minimal synth, the umbrella genre is New Wave in its minimal form: Minimal Wave. The Minimal Synth features explained in this description are often favoured by dark wavers and the avant-garde pop and electronic music fans.
