Analogue Redux launches at Bar 303 Melbourne

Legendary Australian electronic music and arts collective Clan Analogue present Analogue Redux as part of their Electronic Weekend Festival at 303 in the Melbourne Fringe. Starting at 6pm on Saturday the 24th of September, Analogue Redux celebrates the voltage-driven intensity of analogue hardware and live electronic musicianship, launching the new compilation album Analogue Redux: Hardware Explorations out now from Clan Analogue.

Analogue Redux starts early at 6pm on Saturday 24th of September with an open-entry electronic music jam session. All are welcome to bring any kind of electronic music gear, including synths, drum machines, effects, grooveboxes, laptops, ipads or anything else that emits electronically-generated waveforms. Come and join in the sonic mayhem!

From 8pm onwards a selection of Melbourne’s best electronic music performers will play short sets ‘in the round’ on the floor of Bar 303, with artists including Random Acts of Elevator Music, Miles Cosmo, Wonderfeel, BluNjin, Cocoon, Ming, Damian Tangram and headlining act Black Lung. Get yourself a seat for the best close-up view of knob-twiddling you’ll see in the Fringe this decade.

Clan Analogue’s infatuation with analogue hardware goes back to the Australian electronic music collective’s inception in the early 90s when multitudes of classic analogue synths and drum machines were being discarded by the mainstream music industry only to be eagerly snapped up by a generation of young underground artists exploring the new sounds of techno. In recent years a new generation of musicians has gained inspiration by moving away from computer-based systems and re-embracing the joys of getting hands-on with analogue hardware.

Analogue Redux: Hardware Explorations is the latest compilation album release from Clan Analogue, due out in September 2016. Celebrating the new wave of hardware-driven artistic inspiration, Clan Analogue put out a call for artists to contribute tracks featuring their favourite analogue gear and classic electronic music technology. Artists from around the country contributed a selection of tracks ranging stylistically from experimental soundscapes to nu-IDM, garage to ambience, classic techno to 70s-inspired Krautrock explorations. A selection of artists who contributed tracks to Analogue Redux will be performing live at Clan Analogue’s Electronic Weekend at 303.

Analogue Redux takes place at Bar 303, 303 High St Northcote, from 6pm on Saturday the 24th of September as part of the Clan Analogue Electronic Weekend at 303 in the Melbourne Fringe. The weekend starts on Friday night, 23rd of September, with Kill Climate Deniers, and continues on Sunday the 25th of September from midday to midnight with Michael Mildren’s Music Non-Stop.

Tickets can be bought from the Melbourne Fringe website for Clan Analogue’s individual shows or for an Electronic Weekend at 303 festival pass.
