[ Released on Cherry Red Records - ANALOG 001 CD - 1998 ]
MOMUS SAYS: In UNIX speak, the year 1970 is called The Epoch and considered the beginning of all time; so it is too in Analog Baroque. The electronic age starts there. That's when the task began of telling the computers about our human cultural heritage. The music, literature and architecture of the past was shovelled into the mainframes. It came out the other side all bleepy and warped, like western pop when it comes out the other side of Japan, or a sine wave after it's been passed through the VCO filter on an analog synth. Data in the service of decoration, old culture being fed into the computer, historical garb reproduced in hi-tech fabrics ..... it all seemed to add up to something: Analog Baroque.
