The Synthetic Dream Foundation is a music project formed in late 2006 by film music composer, Brett Branning. Brett is also the composer of the neo-classical music band, Abandoned Toys and the world fusion, ambient music project Ephemeral Mists.[1]

The project has collaborated with various female singers from the industrial and symphonic metal scenes, including: Hannah Fury, Marcela Bovio (Stream of Passion), Summer Bowman (The Machine in the Garden), Susan Siren, and Lauren Krothe.[2] The Synthetic Dream Foundation has also performed remixes for many ebm, synthpop, and industrial bands including Suicide Commando, System Syn (metropolis records), Grendel, XP8 (infacted records in Germany), and In Strict Confidence.

The band has been booked for some of the biggest goth industrial events in the world, including headlining the 2008 edition of Goth Con. In addition to their three solo albums, TSDF has had tracks appear on several compilations in the industrial music scene including Cryonica Tanz vol. 5 (cryonica records) and Cyberlab vol. 5 (Alfa Matrix records), and Odyssey of rapture vol.1 (mythical records).
