The composer, sound, and multimedia artist Samson Young received training in electronic music and composition at Princeton University (MFA and PhD). The artist, originally from Hong Kong, engages in classical music traditions, but also advocates for experimental sounds, music by non-specialists, and imperfect performances. He has participated in music festivals around the world with performances such as conducting an iPhone orchestra, a feedback loop caused by a user’s brain activity, and re-created sound effects of bombings from the Middle East with household items.
