A live performance by Silver Apples at Monty Hall on November 5th, 2016. If you want to watch the performance, please visit https://vimeo.com/191012456 Silver Apples was a trailblazing duo in the 1960s, consisting of Dan Taylor on drums and Simeon on a homemade synthesizer made of 12 oscillators and an assortment of sound filters, telegraph keys, radio parts, lab gear and a variety of second hand electronic junk. The band quickly gained a reputation as New York's leading underground musical expression, but the Silver Apples disbanded shortly after their record label folded in 1970. In 1996, Simeon re-activated Silver Apples, recording and performing with many musician friends and admirers. On March 10, 2005, original drummer, Danny Taylor, passed away of a heart attack in Kingston, New York. He was 56 years old. Working as a solo performer, with Danny's drum sounds recreated by electronic means, Simeon has continued the Silver Apples live concerts with performances literally all over the world. Currently Simeon is still recording and performing.
