Just months after announcing that Analogue Music Magazine was to cease print, Analogue is excited to return in video format. Analogue plunges into the brand new world of online music TV with Episode 0, a pilot for a bi-monthly web series featuring interviews, music videos, short documentaries and live performances.
Analogue aspires to use an innovative visual aesthetic to explore the diverse spectrum of music we love (from indie and folk to classical and electronic) from both home and abroad. Beginning with Episode 0, Analogue breaks from the traditional approach to music television and starts afresh with a progressive format applying diverse cinematic techniques.
Episode 0 begins with Choice Prize nominated Adrian Crowley chatting about the creative process behind his lush new album 'Season of the Sparks' (recently picked up for european distribution by Chemikal Underground) and a haunting performance of two songs. Next comes 'Interlude, a segment that uses original footage accompanied by specifically chosen music to emphasize a particular theme or subject. Part documentary and part music video; both vie for visual control of the piece. The premiere 'Interlude' focuses on the Dublin docklands and features original music from Galway based scratch/electronic artist Jimmy the Hideous Penguin. Toronto's violin virtuoso Final Fantasy brings the pilot to a close with an interview about his soon to be released album 'Heartland' and a performance of tour favourite 'Lewis Takes off his Shirt'.
The Analogue web series is directed by Graham Seely & Tim Gannon and produced by Analogue founder Brendan McGuirk.
