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 its 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.
