EMG Presents: Analog On

An exciting invitation to a super-cool concert, courtesy of the Experimental Music Group:

Analog On is an experimental electronic music ensemble that composes and performs on vintage analog electronics and modular synthesizers. The group consists of Shauna Caffrey on oscillator, saw and electronics, and Richard Duckworth on modular synthesizer and effects. Analog On made their debut at the Ideopreneurial Entrephonics II festival in Dublin, Ireland, in April 2016, and just finished recording their first release on the iconic Moog System 55 in the cockpit of the Moog Sound Lab at the Tonmeister Studio in Surrey. The aesthetic is that of the time-warp cultist with retro and future aesthetics co-existing in the same cultural and temporal space.

They will play tracks from the album in America as a musical homecoming for Richard Duckworth, as he studied analog synthesis under Herb Deutsch at Hofstra University in the 1980s: this is where he was first introduced to the Moog modular system and he spent many hours in the electronic music studio experimenting with voltage-controlled systems. Shauna Louise Caffrey is a musicology major at Trinity College, Dublin. Her life-long love of experimental soundtrack led her to join Analog On, and since then she has delighted in the creation of ‘weird noise’ and bizarre soundscapes through mixed media.
