Retrotech Recalls The Glory Days Of Synth Music

This is a teaser video for Retrotech, an electronic music concert composed and performed live by keyboardists Carlos Trilha and André Dessandes.

Retrotech recalls the “belle epoque” of electronic music.


On stage, Trilha and Dessandes use synthesizers, analogue sequencers and drum machines from the 70’s and early 80’s. These historical instruments evoke the origin of characteristic electronic sounds that are now widely used in many types of pop and electronic music.

A unique detail of this production is that they do not use loops or sound libraries. All the sounds are created from real instruments and are first generation, allowing Retrotech to make a striking reinterpretation of the classic sound of electronic music.

In addition, Retrotech also uses a special set of projection images from generative code (created in real time), synchronized by software written with MAX/MSP/JITTER by ALESSANDRA MARFISA specially for each performance.
