Simon Taylor

Simon Taylor
Description:
Simon Taylor has spent most of life in the small town of Ashfield in Western Massachusetts where his immediate family resides. However, he also has strong ties to Rowe, a town famous for its now shut-down nuclear powerplant and pleasant pinic grounds. His music tends to revolve around the tensions between imagined pastoral sanctuary and the lack of true meaning in today's (or any other time's) society. How can beauty exist when individual aesthetics are predicated on empty social values? Can escape to the countryside give rise to individual imagination? He engages with these questions in a spirit of aloof carelessness and tepid humor that recognizes its own failings and paradoxes. One of Simon Taylor's more well-known pieces "Avi in Space" is an example of how he will work theoretical yet sentimental issues into a light-hearted, artificial framework. Read more on Last.fm.
