Samson Young: Real Music

November 30, 2020 - December 12, 2021

Acclaimed Hong Kong artist and composer Samson Young’s installations, performances, videos and works on paper—all vibrating with colour and sound—are studies of the impossible, the hypothetical and the all too real. Straddling experimental worlds of art and music and informed by intensive research processes, his artworks move us to look, listen and imagine, while drawing attention to how often our perception is blinkered.

Presented in partnership with Talbot Rice Gallery at the University of Edinburgh, the exhibition Real Music features an ambitious collaboration with Edinburgh’s Next Generation Sound Synthesis (NESS) research group, who have developed pioneering software that can generate the sound of virtual instruments. For historians this offers the opportunity to hear lost objects, while for Young it is an opportunity to hear the impossible. The artist’s new series of installations titled Possible Music, 2018–, are the result of this encounter.

The gallery is currently closed to the public.
