Loumavox revelations, the story of the forgotten Synthesizer and the mysterious developers Louise and Marc Vokzinski is fake.. a synth soap opera
On December 17th I published news about a mysterious, forgotten Synthesizer that was discovered by a school class in France. According to the video, this analog synth was made by the unknown developers Louise and Mark Vokzinski. There was also a complete story of how the device was found, who the developers are, etc. A milestone for the Synthesizer history, if it is true.
But doubts quickly arose. On the one hand because the instrument still works so smoothly, the knobs look like they were from a 3D printer … A well-known YouTuber wrote early on my IG posting: “if a story sounds to good it is often not true”.
And he and many others should be proved right. The story is fake. The Synthesizer is real, works great, but neither the developer nor the history around of the device has ever existed.
It was recently revealed in a new video. It is about a school project about the fictional and real world in which Jean Michel Jarre was also involved. Here is a translation of the words from the makers:
So there you go, it’s over, off the masks. You searched, you may have found. Like us for over two years now.
The story of Louise and the Loumavox is the most beautiful of stories: an idea imagined by two young girls who firmly believed that a little Moselle girl helped by her brother could have revolutionized the history of electronic music, almost exclusively reserved for men. And their teacher and their class ended up believing it too.
We all dreamed it together and we told our dream. Crafted, built, tinkered with between two or three confinements and re-confinements with the help of a mad scientist, a patient director and a few enthusiastic accomplices.
The Loumavox exists, we have met it. Ok he’s not that old but he’s already matured well and he sings like no other! As for Louise, something tells us that she is no longer very far from us.
Unfortunately it remains a story or as I like to say: a synth soap opera. Nonetheless, you have to congratulate the school class for this great project. Above all, that they managed to make many believe in a real Synthesizer Christmas fairy tale.
