Simon Christensen (f. 1971) is an educated composer from the Royal Danish Academy of Music and Conservatoire de Paris. His music has been performed in his native country, Denmark and abroad counting commissions by Danish National Symphony Orchestra, Athelas Sinfonietta, Danish National Vocal Ensemble and The Silesian String Quartet.
Simon Christensen’s passion for combining art film and live music has resulted in Tributes - Pulse (2010-11) – a collaboration with the American filmmaker Bill Morrison – and Chamber Cinema Set (2013-14), an ongoing collaboration with the American filmmaker, Robert Schaller.
A substantial part of Christensen’s works focuses on the combination of acoustic instruments and analogue, electronic sound sources, but he also writes music for traditional combinations of acoustic instruments.
Simon Christensen is an active musician in his own duo Mono Duo and the trio, Kundi Bombo. He performs on the Zither, a handful of percussion and a small arsenal of analogue modules.
