Simon Longo


I started to compose and experiment with electronic musical instruments in the late 80’s, early 90’s, as bedroom producer, and quickly went on producing alternative techno released on independent label such as Muzak, Digit, and Modern Innovation.

My research in alternative methods of composition evolved into improvisations techniques and real time sound manipulation, using feedback, filtering and digital processing as real time instruments.

I am always been interested in sounds and the possibility of timbral composition, and beleivd that, electronic music sould be create live. My music become an ever changing flow of abstract sounds that drive the mood and create interconnection of meaning and rhythms.

I consider my laptop an interactive box and container of sounds, rhythms, synaesthetic visuals and harmonics, it is the main and more versatile of all my instruments.
