Biography

Simon Scott (b. 1971) is a British sound artist and multi-instrumentalist who is from Cambridge, UK. Below Sea Level, released in summer 2012, is Scott’s third solo album and his debut album for the US experimental record label 12k. Scott is also a member of the group BETWEEN, featuring Taylor Deupree, Marcus Fisher and illuha, who released their debut album on 12.12.12 on 12k.

The aesthetics of active listening and the subjective distinction of compositional materials and sound timbres are predominant explorations in his work. His music is a fusion of digital signal manipulation, micro-melodies and minimalism combined with environmental sounds and organic acoustic textures. He is inspired by his interests in sound ecology, music technology, digital media, illustration, photography, composition and sound art.

Since the late 1990’s Scott’s work has been featured in a variety of international films, sonic art exhibitions, dance productions and digital multi-media projects. He has toured worldwide since 1988 (he was the drummer for Slowdive between 1990 and 1994, who worked with Brian Eno on the Souvlaki album), and his track “For Martha” was included on the respected German label Kompakt’s Pop Ambient 2012 compilation series.
