Simeon Coxe and Silver Apples: A Tribute by CatSynth TV

CatSynth TV

"We pay tribute to electronic-music pioneer Simeon Coxe, who passed away on September 8, 2020. As half of the duo Silver Apples, he was among the first to introduce synthesizers into rock music as a central melodic and harmonic element (rather than as a novelty) with his custom instrument made up of numerous test oscillators, telegraph keys, wah-wah pedals, and Echoplexes. The original duo only lasted three years, but they had a major influence on the electronic-infused bands of the 1970s and beyond. Coxe reformed Silver Apples in 1996, and then continued to perform as a solo act in the 2000s.

We extend our thoughts to his friends and family. We also feel that Simeon Coxe has not gotten his proper due for his early innovative and influential work with electronics and hope that his legacy continues to grow.
