Event Description: MUSIC: Giants of Jazz 2019: Simon Thacker

About Simon Thacker: 

Described as “one of the most important musicians of his generation" (ThreeWeeks), Simon Thacker is a Scottish composer, classical guitarist, improviser and ensemble leader whose ever-expanding musical world draws on a deep immersion in diverse cultures. Having led some of today’s most prescient intercultural ensembles, Simon brings his pioneering experiences to the art of solo guitar in Pashyanti [Sanskrit: the junction point between the ordinary waking state and pure consciousness]. 

Simon’s highly individual, iconoclastic music explores every facet of the instrument, ranging from beguiling digital delay driven soundscapes, muscular improvisations utilising his many inspirations to reimaginings of Tagore. His instinctive rhythmic gift is as ferocious as it is layered and gives his music an unmistakable intensity. Pashyanti is the latest stage in this journey and will mark Simon’s debut solo tour of India. 

As well as touring as a classical guitar soloist whose music expands the soundworld of the instrument, Simon has also developed some of today’s most prescient ensembles.  

Simon Thacker’s Svara-Kanti is a world-leading Indo-Western community of lineups which has seen him a tour and collaborate at major festivals in India, Pakistan and Bangladesh, including for an audience of 60 000 in Dhaka and at The Sacred Pushkar. Their recent Trikala double album won a Scottish New Music Award. 

Simon's compositions have been played on the radio in over 50 countries. As an educator, he has been a classical guitar tutor at Edinburgh Napier University and Edinburgh College for 15 years. He has performed as a soloist with many orchestras, including the Royal Scottish National Orchestra.
