Simonne Jones biography
Born in Los Angeles, Simonne Jones established herself in the experimentally charged atmosphere of Berlin. A multi-instrumentalist, Simonne creates introspective electropop, pushing the boundaries of the genre. Her scientific background remains a touchstone in her creative process. Simonne’s synth-infused tracks create a magnetic intersection of science and the arts, while simultaneously grounding the listener in the human experience and launching them into space. Lyrics present a dichotomy between fragility and fierce confidence. If her single “Gravity” is any indication of her debut, this fusion of science and music will continue to break new ground. Influenced by PJ Harvey, Nine Inch Nails and Depeche Mode, her otherworldly sound ignites a sense of curiosity for the mysteries of the universe. With her emotive depth, vocal range, and commanding stage presence, it’s no surprise she’s been tapped as Peaches’ new protégé.
In Hall 1, various Artists, Musicians and Developers will present short concert/presentations up to 20 minutes long. During the presentations, other than performances, presenters will explain the technology or instruments used and answer questions. A maximum of one half of the time (10 minutes) will be for speaking or explanations.
The Gespraechskonzerte will also be presented over video monitors and projections so one can view the very finely detailed products and technical usage. The edited recordings of these events will also be available online for future use.
The term and concept of Gespraechskonzerte or "Discussion Concert" was coined by the late German Physicist and pioneer of electronic music, Oskar Sala. He used this phrase at times when he would perform on the Trautonium with discussion to follow the concert.
