Spanish electronic music band Tentacles has a new album out, Arcade, and they shared this video that details how the album was made.
Tentacles (José Luis Amores Sardá & Javier García Sanchez) describe the tracks on their new album as “Pixelated music that will make you sail the universe of videogames and science fiction.”
Here’s what they have to say about the video:
We detail not only the gear used but also the composition method and the recording process of the synths, samplers, voices, bass and drums.
We heavily use Elektron gear: Octatrack and Analog Keys, but also a little Casio VL-1 in a few tracks.
We also talk about why we use Creative Commons licenses to promote the copy and sharing of our music.
