Artist and composer Samson Young (b. 1979) holds a Ph.D. in Music Composition from Princeton University. Young’s diverse practice draws from the avant-garde compositional traditions of aleatoric music, musique concrète, and graphical notation. Behind each project is an extensive process of research, involving a mapping of the process through a series of «sound sketches» and audio recordings. His drawing, radio broadcast, performance and composition touch upon the recurring topics of conflict, war, and political frontiers. Young was the inaugural winner of the BMW Art Journey Award at the Art Basel Hong Kong 2015. Recent solo projects include Hiroshima City Museum of Contemporary Art, Japan (2015); Team Gallery, New York (2015); Para Site, Hong Kong (2016); Experimenter, India (August 2016); and Kunsthalle Düsseldorf, Germany (December 2016). He will represent Hong Kong in the 2017 Venice Biennale. Visit his website here.
