"offers wonderfully dusty, quite original retro electronics, but also very timeless glides through the ether" - Babyblaue-Seiten
Analog On is an experimental electronic music ensemble that composes and performs on vintage analogue electronics and modular synthesizers. The group consists of Shauna Caffrey on oscillator, saw, and electronics, and Richard Duckworth on modular synthesizer and effects. The Analog On made their debut at the Ideopreneurial Entrephonics II festival at the Freemasons’ Hall in April 2016, and has 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.
This album is 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. 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.
