Marcus Fischer & Simon Scott
Shape Memory

Simon Scott is, of course, the drummer in recently reconstituted shoegazers Slowdive. He has though had a long, separate career as a master of ambient bliss-outs, and here returns to Taylor Deupree's esteemed 12K label for a collaboration with friend, fellow ambient explorer and multidisciplinary artist Marcus Fischer. Although the pair discussed the album and shared sound sources beforehand, the bulk of the work was recorded on a spare day on Slowdive's whizz through the USA. Utilizing cassette loops and a plethora of additional sounds, samples and instruments, the results of the collaboration are an immersive series of deeply rich sonic textures.

Soundings

Simon Scott recently got back into his old role, as drummer for the freshly reformed Slowdive, but he never stopped with his more abstract work. Soundings was put together in many hotel rooms during tours, and mix together evocative field recordings with all manner of electronic sounds and processes. Soundings makes for a properly Touch album.

Slowdive

2017 is an exciting year for shoegazers old and new as veteran bands take advantage of the resurgence in the genre by making new albums that would have been laughed out of court if the year was 1996. Slowdive follow on from Ride in unleashing new music and though they have prosaically only managed to self-title it, this is the moment for anyone who has been waiting since 1995 for new material.

STUK

Slowdive drummer Simon Scott was just heading out onto stage to play a set of his solo work when he heard the news of the tragic events at the Bataclan in Paris. This recording of his November 2015 set is therefore dedicated to all the victims of that terrible night. This is a room recording of the entire show, a one-off set showcasing his lovely drifting ambience inspired by the natural world.

Floodlines

Cambridge based multi instrumentalist Simon Scott has releases on 12K, Miasmah and As International, as well as being the drummer in Slowdive. Floodlines was recorded live at Cafe Oto in London, and plays on themes regarding nature and technology. Washes of warm noise and manipulated field samples, definitely check out if you like Fennesz, or Thomas Köner.

Insomni

Insomni is the latest sound-work from Simon Scott. He builds up involving soundscapes from noise picked up around his home with induction coils and hydrophones, shaping these background ambiences into an abstract piece of music by adding guitars, Buddha Machines and electronics. Released by Ash International.
