Concert Poster

The fifth concert in the series welcomes Irish modular synth group Analog On. Electroacoustic composer and performer Andrew Leslie Hooker will also be performing.

Analog On

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.
Their eponymous 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.

Andrew Leslie Hooker

A filmmaker and composer of electroacoustic music currently based in North Wales.

Having recently completed an MMus in electroacoustic composition, he is now continuing his studies as a PhD research student at the University of Huddersfield whilst contemporaneously working on various music, dance and extended cinema projects. His work is published by Entr'acte (LN/ AN) & Dinzu Artefacts (LA).
