Simon Scott (b. 1971) is a British sound artist and multi-instrumentalist who is currently based in Cambridge, UK. Below Sea Level is Scott’s third album, released in May 2012, and is his debut release for 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, composition and sonic art.
Since the late 1990’s Scott’s work has been featured in a variety of international films, 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. His music has been previously released on Morr Music, Miasmah, Slaapwel, Sonic Pieces, Secret Furry Hole, Ghostly International and other respected international recording labels.
