Simple Harmonic Motion are a four piece band playing original instrumental music in the new age/ contemporary classical genre. Line-up is keyboards, flute (Jonathan Beckitt), double bass (Steve Kershaw), electric guitar (Curtis E Johnson) and drums/ percussion (Gerry O’Riordan). Their music is an exciting blend of styles, drawing on a variety of influences, and is beautifully performed and arranged
Together they have taken a classical music format, the tone poem, and used it to present an interpretation of selected poems of Keats. Starting with Endymion - A thing of beauty is a joy for ever – they have chosen four other well-known poems for what is a unique and unusual take on the genre.
The music is entirely instrumental, and draws on a variety of influences but will appeal to devotees of Christian Fennesz, Pablo Bolivar, Rauelsson et al.
Endymion, Lamia, Ode To Psyche, To Autumn, Hyperion: A Fragment
