4th July at the Rossi Bar: Simon James / Rapt / Kina:Suttsu

Simon James
Buchla 200e, Lorre Mill Double Knot, Apollo 11

The Simonsound’s Simon James will be performing using the Buchla 200e and Lorre Mill Double Knot. Celebrating the Apollo 11 50th anniversary. 

Brighton based, he played at the first Fort Process. Under the name The Simonsound, he took inspiration from the cold war, space race, science fiction and library music, and the album ‘Reverse Engineering’ was selected by Giles Peterson as one of his BBC Radio 1 Records Of The Year.  A darker sound in Black Channels (a collaboration with singer Becky Randall) found a home on cult soundtrack label Death Waltz Records. The soundtrack to the radio drama Akiha Den Den, described by Electronic Sound Magazine as ’21st Century Radiophonica at its very best’ and ‘a seamless adventure in spot on sound design’, has recently been released by Castles in Space Records.


Neo-classical drone with a techno influence.

Jacob Ware’s electronic music operating on the liminal areas between drone, neo-classical music and techno. Inspired by late night thought loops and long distance collaboration.


Japanese experimentalism from minimal to maximal

Kina:Suttsu (from joumon-JAPAN) Ambient, noise, experimental music using guitar, sax, voice etc…. The sense of the world takes what it listens to another dimension. Kina:suttsu is the word of Ainu tribes in Japan and means dragon god.
