Samson YOUNG

Samson Young

With formal training in classical music and a keen eye for visuals, spatial installations and new technologies, Samson Young has been known to combine his diverse interests into uniquely intermedia concert experiences. Described by contemporary music portal Sequenza 21 as “epic, dark, and fun”, Samson Young’s music juxtaposes elements of play with violent instrumental gestures to create experiences of rich darkness and perverted poetry. Beyond the classical concert stage, Young’s creative output spans the widest possible range: from composition for symphony orchestra and live electronics, to amusement ride-turned-interactive installation, to multi-channel video featuring himself dressed as the red Teletubby.
