I met Philippe Simon 30 years ago at his gallery in Bordeaux (France). He is painter,  musician and photographer, a total artist.
P. Simon is passionate about sound and acoustics, he even builds his own speakers.

Philippe Simon was born in 1936 and plays synthesizer every day. Nowadays, he composed more than 200 albums…
So, we will release some of them on Kalamine Records in tribute to a man for whom I have a lot of respect and sympathy.

Given the impressive number of songs composed by Philippe Simon, we have preferred to create a sub division of Kalamine Records to highlight the fantastic work of this artist.

I  initially started making music under the alias Konran (japenese for confusion), inspired by artists such as Ben Frost William Basinski and AKIRA YAMAOKA. With no previous big background music besides lead singer on two garage bands, this was a long and difficult journey. After long pauses and drug fueled trips, i came to the discovery of my « sweet spot », which with full force and dedicated to work and complete my record. Form of expression, where raw emotions are transformed into drone and harsh noise sounds, reflect the state of mind, and constant struggle with clinical depression. »
