Originally trained in music composition, Samson Young’s creative outputs now take shape in a variety of media and across many disciplines. Born in 1979 in Hong Kong, Samson studied music, philosophy and gender studies at the University of Sydney and holds a Ph.D. in Music Composition from Princeton University. His diverse and experimental practice includes live performances, radio broadcasts, public-participatory events, films, installations, and “sound drawings”.
Each work of Samson’s is a product of an extensive process of research and fieldwork, and often, his projects are marked by an undercurrent of recurring themes like conflict, war, and politically-imposed borders.
