Clan Analogue’s 30 years Electronic Weekend celebration

Clan Analogue celebrate 30th anniversary with the Electronic Weekend at 303 in Melbourne Fringe

The legendary Clan Analogue collective commemorate their 30 years of pioneering activity in Australian underground electronic music with the Electronic Weekend at 303. Taking place over two nights at Bar 303, Northcote, on the 14th and 15th of October as part of the Melbourne Fringe Festival, the Electronic Weekend encompasses two epic events – RockNo and MicroVirtuosity.

On Friday the 14th of October, RockNo explores the collision of rock and techno, two opposing musical forces to be smashed and reassembled into new sonic fragments. From 8pm, live sets by Ming One and Dylan Beast will launch their new releases on Clan Analogue. The Clan Analogue 303 Orchestra will see a unique one-off collection of musicians combine their TB-303s into one epic synchronised sound. New tech-house sensation Ollie Lee will open the night while Oolluu, featuring the synth virtuosity of Ehsan Gelsi, bring things to a rocking close.

MicroVirtuosity takes place on the following night, Saturday 15th of October, exploring the world of micro-instruments, boutique synthesizers and mobile music technology. The night starts at 6pm with an open-entry electronic music jam session. All are welcome to bring a noise-making device and join the sonic mayhem! From 8pm a lineup of accomplished micro-instrumentalists perform from the centre of the room so that audience members can get a close-up view of micro-virtuosity in action. Aday, Reductionist and 477 each explore their own live mobile strategies. Kable54 then performs a set of the newly-decrypted Future Security Agency sonic data, followed by a closing ambient dreampunk set from Evan Sparks.

Celebrate 30 years of Clan Analogue with the Electronic Weekend at 303, taking place at Bar 303, 303 High St, Northcote, on Friday the 14th of October for RockNo and Saturday 15th of October for MicroVirtuosity.

Tickets for RockNo, MicroVirtuosity and Clan Analogue’s Electronic Weekend at 303 are available from the Melbourne Fringe website or by phoning 9660 9666.
