His multi-media work Resonance At The Still Point Of Change [2012] for instruments, voices, multi-screen projection and lights was commissioned for the Cultural Olympiad. Simon has a long association with John Tilbury playing Feldman and can be heard playing in the ensembles Apartment House, Skogen and Ensemble Grizzana amongst others on Another Timbre, Matchless, ATOPOS, Naim Audio, Sibarecords, Tall Guy Records & EMI.
