Simon Russell

Simon was one of Yellow Technology's very first clients, having been recommended through our work with the Chapell Recorded Music Library.  We have worked with Simon and his brother, Mark, ever since, providing technical assistance as required and building and moving studios.  Back in 2006, we helped to build Simon's current studio, providing equipment, furniture, wiring and acoustic consultation, and Simon continues to work in this studio today, albeit following several upgrades and enhancements along the way.

Simon Russell is a London-based musician and composer, who has worked on numerous award-winning films and documentaries, including Havana Marking's Afghan Star (2 Sundance Awards, Grierson Award 2009, Prix Italia), Baroque; From St Peter's to St Paul's (winner of the Royal Television Society Award 2009 for best arts documentary series) and Pussy Riot - A Punk Prayer (Suncance Award).  He is also responsible for the music behind Aardman Animation's Canimals, currently televised globally.

Simon plays a wide range of instruments, including lap steel, banjo, theremin, ukulele, tin-tone guitar, mandolin, omnichord, dulcimer, keyboards, zither, shamisen and double bass.
