Arca has composed the start-up music for a video game console called the Mega Sg. Listen above via Pitchfork. With thick, spaciously ambient keys and rustling scratches, it's 20 seconds of pure Arca.
The Sg is a remake of the Sega Genesis, a 16-bit console that competed with the Super Nintendo in the 1990s. It's available for pre-order here.
Arca's last project, his self-titled third album, was released in 2017. Since then he's worked with Björk on her album Utopia, and released the song "Fetiche." Read his 2014 FADER cover story here.
