These tracks by The Analog Session are derived from some improvisations recorded at Robotnick’s studio in Summer 2018. In the editing the most significant parts were saved ; others were cut out to give shape to 7 tracks where improvisation plays the main role while adjusting into a dance structure. Modal music as usual where the continuous variation in tone-colour leads to a hypnotic state . Liquid yet dramatically metronomic music. Growing out of the history of electronics we humbly contributed and feel to belong to, here and now. No need to stress the analog origin of most of our sounds. You can immediately feel it : Analogue synths produce a kind of sound which, although synthetic is perceived as real and therefore the emotions it gives -if any -are much deeper. Two tracks already released in “Black Ground” are here presented with a new look. “They sound differently every-time we improvise them live”. The versions presented in this EP come from a Summer night in my studio while rehearsing before a concert. On that occasion we wrote the sequences of 3 new tracks “Actung Asteroid” “When Machines Get Funky”and “Traveling To The Hidden Space” upon which we improvised in a couple of takes together. We then added to the project some tracks made with traditional overdubbing in studio production style : “Until Emergency Is Over”, “Burning Sun”.
Intermezzo is a bonus track . It’s an improvisation by Ludus Pinsky where he exclusively used the modular synth he put together by himself . Pure analog electronic music for die-hard fans of that sound .
The Analog Session’s style can be labeled as “Funky-Techno”
Alexander Robotnick ,well known for his track “Problèmes d’Amour” released during the early 80s Italo-disco age, boasts a fairly broad music experience ranging from electro disco to rock and world music , ambient and soundtracks, as making music has been his only job and passion in .
The same applies to Ludus Pinsky who experimented with Punk , reggae and ambient in the past .
Their multi-faceted music background inevitably impacts their current work which is further enriched by The Analog Session long time familiarity with improvisation.
