Samson Young

Multicultural paradigms, weaved into a symphony of image and sound, are at the heart of Hong Kong artist and composer, Samson Young’s practice. With a formal cross-cultural training in music composition, Young channels his attunement to melody by pushing it’s formalist boundaries to create innovative cross-media experiences that touch upon the recurring topics of identity, war and literature. Emphasising a sense of play and intellectual witticism through the inclusion of unexpected sounds, ranging from the ring of Gameboys, fanfare rides and Cantonese nursery rhymes, to references of great works of fiction, Young builds peculiar scenarios that challenge one’s everyday associations with objects, stories and spaces.

Samson Young is a highly regarded composer and media artist based in Hong Kong. Holding a PhD in Music Composition from Princeton University (2013), Young has been selected to represent Hong Kong at the 57th Venice Biennale in 2017 and has held multiple solo exhibitions worldwide, including the Goethe-Institute, Hong Kong and Hiroshima City Museum of Contemporary Art, Japan. He is the member of multiple bands and has collaborated with orchestras worldwide.
