I Speak Machine are vocalist and synth nerd Tara Busch and filmmaker Maf Lewis. Together they make brooding soundtracks and horror / sci-fi films, creating the audio and visual in unison and giving both elements equal prominence. Their approach is inspired by Spaghetti Western cinema duo Ennio Morricone and Sergio Leone, who used to play with score ideas for scenes while scripts were being written. Following the release of The Silence (the score to their own sci-fi short film) in 2014, Busch and Lewis have teamed up with Benge from Wrangler / John Foxx and The Maths to work on their latest short film and album, Zombies 1985. Outlawing modern gear and using only 1985 period equipment to produce the album, I.S.M. made a virtue of their limitations, creating the sound of a neon-lit LA of the 1980s rapidly unspooling into chaos. The record was also mixed at Memetune studios using solely vintage mixers, effects and processing.
