Geek Of The Week: Tara Busch

Filling in for Ron this week…

It’s been a little while since I’ve featured one of my favorite electronic music composers as a GOTW, but this week, musician/vocalist Tara Busch will join Richard Devine, Lori Napoleon, Jason Amm, and others. Busch is one half of the avant-garde duo known as I Speak Machine. They combine audio and video in performances to essentially do a live film score for the audience. I Speak Machine opened for former GTOW Gary Numan in 2015 and 2016. Previous to this collaboration, Busch released a studio album that gained her some notoriety in the electronic music community. Her dark brooding vocals and moody keyboard melodies are powerful and modern but there are jazz and classical overtones. She is currently working on her second studio album and continues to score films. Now she can add GOTW to her resume.
