The Analogue Audio Association, or "AAA" (and also PLACID Records) consists of two members: Tilo Manig and Jörn Währ. Born in 1970, they grew up with the daily challenges of socialistic conditions. One of their earliest experiments with music was to produce a sound-loop. With the help of a four-track-recorder the Analogue Audio Association started to create their unique sound, which is noticeable till today. From the beginning it has been characterised by the warm sound of analogue units (i.e. Moog, various Rolands and a S-Drum), the motor of the project.
