Calika is Simon Kealoha, an artist focused on exploring the uneasy interface between electronic and acoustic music. Simon’s solo work brings forth a distinct aesthetic. His work combines timbres born from the strings of dismantled pianos, harps, mouth organs and seemingly dismembered voices. The nuances of these sources are combined with Simon’s guitar and synthesiser playing and set against an off-kilter backbeat of percussion made from found-sounds and distorted drum kits. The music uses unusual but complimentary sounds to produce a coherent final picture, rich in aural detail.
