Analog Suicide

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



Tara is known for her richly textured, vocally driven orchestral electronica, her psychedelic, etherial remixes and her affinity for analogue and virtual synths. She is a keen supporter of all technologies vintage and cutting edge, and is an endorsed artist with Moog Music, Ableton Live, AKAI, Native Instruments and Universal Audio.

In early 2009, Tara released her debut album on Tummy Touch records, "Pilfershire Lane". Together with her creative partner, designer and filmmaker Maf Lewis, they released the album as a uniquely designed, limited edition box set which sold out online in 48 hours.

Throughout 2009 and into the first half of 2010, Tara flexed her production muscles and completed remixes for Tori Amos, Annie Lennox, Bat For Lashes, Catherine AD, Polly Scattergood, Lauren Pritchard, Phenomenal Handclap Band and the mysterious internet phenomenon, iamamiwhoami.

Tara recreated a score for live performance for the Academy Award winning short film, "The Red Balloon". The score was performed at the 2010 Tramlines Festival in Sheffield and the 2010 Watusi Festival in South Wales.

In October 2010, Tara was handpicked by Michelle Moog to perform & participate in a workshop called "Modern Day Sound Sculpting" at the groundbreaking MoogFest 2010 festival on Asheville, North Carolina.

2011 will see Tara and Maf collaborating on a audio/visual science fiction piece entitled "The Silence". Strictly created under their very own set of creative guidelines known as "Synchronika", this sonic/visual experience will be performed live to picture in venues around the world. Tara has also been commissioned score and perform live to picture a silent film entitled "Suspense" for the Bird's Eye View Film Festival at the Southbank Centre on March 11 with Imogen Heap and Micachu.
