Simon Goff

In the context of the Forced Amnesia exhibition by Mary-Audrey Ramirez

Simon Goff is a British composer, producer and artist based in Berlin.

His debut solo album Vale released in 2021 is a fusion of his classical background with fearless electronic experimentation, layered with grounded melodies, and described by The Quietus as, "a statement of both awe and intent... it's remarkable that the album marks his debut outing on his own terms". His sophomore album, Spark Like Living Mothers, released in 2023, is a six-track collection of immersive, textural and intuitive electronica, and stands as a testament to Goff's multifaceted practice.

A classically trained violinist, Goff has performed internationally with the likes of Peter Broderick, Federico Albanese and Xiu Xiu and has performed at Funkhaus, the South Bank Centre in London, Elbphilharmonie in Hamburg, and CTM Festival. His live shows have further cemented his reputation as an innovator of the genre, seeing him layer his performance samples of electronics and live violin, to create a textured and epic expansion of his recorded works.

Alongside his artist releases, Simon has scored the BBC / Paramount+ drama series, The Gold, starring Jack Lowden and Hugh Bonneville, as well as Czech feature We Have Never Been Modern and the forthcoming Canal+ series Daughter of the Nation.

For this one-off performance, Simon has adapted the material he wrote for Mary-Audrey Ramirez work Forced Amnesia to create an immersive ambient sonic journey through the landscapes she has created.
