Simon Gore

Ambiant - experimental

Simon Gore is an experimental and ambient musician. His compositions are characterized by dense soundscapes, the extended use of acoustic piano, various analog synths and effects, tape manipulation, room ambiances and field recording.

Even though evolving through the minimalist sphere, his work shows a high complexity in the research of every effect, subtle patterns and in terms of composition, structure and mix.

He joined October Tone after spontaniously presenting his forthcoming album and this collaboration ended in a three segments cooperation which “For Eliane” is the first component. The piece is an 18.5-minute microtonal composition for solo pipe organ. The recording is one continuous take with no overdubs and is solely inspired by the works of Eliane Radigue.

“For Eliane” is available as 300 pieces limited vinyle edition to preorder through October Tone and Circuit Sweet.
