Simple Harmonic Motion
Simple Harmonic Motion is a fully integrated audio-visual performance
group that combines stunning video animations with New Age /
Contemporary Classical / Prog Rock sounds to create mesmerising
performances where the architecture of the venue becomes an extra member
of the band.
The band plays symphonic rock, often based on biblical subjects such as the story of Lazarus accompanied by an amazing light show that tells the story of their songs. The combination with Emma Brown's vocals is spot on.

Led by composer and keyboardist Jonathan Beckitt, the group features Curtis E. Johnson on guitar, Steve Kershaw on double bass, bass guitars and electronics, Gerry O’ Riordan on drums, and Emma Brown on vocals.
Simple Harmonic Motion have performed in the UK, Denmark, Germany, France, and the Netherlands, mainly in very large churches including Amiens Cathedral, where the video
projections and ambient acoustics provide the perfect environment for
the group's music.
The band has released three studio albums on Floating World Records: Tone Poems and Interludes, and Fantasia. They are currently working on a fourth release to 2023, Variations, which will again feature Emma Brown on vocals.
