Analog Suicide

Behind the world of I SPEAK MACHINE with Tara Busch & Maf Lewis



Hello all. Writing to you from the rolling green hills of Wales, where I am rehearsing for some upcoming gigs (that I will detail you on very soon) with just my Arturia Microbrute & laptop accompanied by some stale, 70% chocolate stars that have been left over in my mother in law’s kitchen since Christmas. 100% professional, yes.

So – in the midst of this “exciting fanfare”, I am excited to announce to you our new “unprintable book” in collaboration with Tommy Lee Edwards, Lex Records, Google and Penguin Random House – STRATA.

It is full-tilt dark, dystopian sci-fi, with illustrations by Tommy Lee Edwards and music and sound design by I Speak Machine. We teamed up with Google labs’ Editions at Play to create a killer interface for the book, and Penguin-Random House gave us several fantastic authors that contributed essays that relate to the world of STRATA.

Preview the book, hear the music with full animated interface and limited chapters at and read more about it on the I Speak Machine blog.


This is just the beginning of STRATA. Much much more to come (including LOTS of new music) as this world develops and branches out it’s odd, wild tentacles…keep your eyes peeeeeeled! xo Tara
