CORD radio show episode 1: Simon James

We are very excited to announce our first CORD radio show! In this episode CORD ECD Dominic Goodman talks to producer and synthesiser enthusiast, Simon James (AKA The Simonsound), about his passion for the synthesiser and its significant influence on the world of electro, electronic music and sound design. From Don Buchla and Robert Moog, to Suzanne Ciani via the Radiophonic Workshop, Simon describes his own musical journey and plays some of the music that has punctuated it.

Simon has been experimenting with sound for over 20 years. His music, radio and sound designs have been heard on BBC Radio 3, BBC Radio 4, BBC 6 Music, NTS, totallyradio, Resonance FM and ABC (Australia) and performances have taken place at The Royal Festival Hall, Koko, a haunted sea fort and a 1950s Telescope Dome.


We would like to thank Simon for taking the time to chat with us. We hope you enjoy the first of many CORD radio shows!
