History

Clan Analogue was started in Sydney, Australia, in 1992 as a collective by founder Brendan J Palmer, and a small group of people who were interested and active in electronic sound. Largely fuelled by the sore lack of live venues in Australia for electronic music and a lack of options for releasing recorded material, Clan Analogue was born out of necessity.

Since its inception Clan Analogue has released over 30 albums[1] directly with many more releases coming from collective members such as Deep Child, b(if)tek, Disco Stu, Artificial, Dark Network, Atone or the Telemetry Orchestra through other labels.

Philosophy

"Following the digitalised simulation of the early analogue instruments throughout the nineties, Scot Art (aka Nerve Agent) informs me that analogue is ‘a process or a state of being’, apparently not distant from the idea of a collective, or a network of circuit paths. According to Scot, ‘a single transistor alone can only do so much … it needs a circuit, other transistors, to operate’. Not ‘digital creatures’, humans ‘are analogue wetware, a chemical-electrical circuit that exists in a network (society, nature) that allows these circuits to connect … to “oscillate” or otherwise display behaviour in accordance to … electro-magnetic theory’. As a social circuit board, Clan enables the building of networks by providing members with access to equipment, knowledge and advice, along with the opportunity to play live and co-produce music."[2]
