Samson Young is an artist and composer known for works that push disciplinary, material, cultural and musical boundaries. The publication Samson Young: Real Music provides insight into the Hong Kong artist’s widely acclaimed practice to date and is the first to draw out the reverse ethnographic lens that informs his work. Richly illustrated, it features new essays by curators and music theorists Alexandra Chang, Alexander Rehding and Joel Stern, and a conversation between Young and audio synthesis expert Stefan Bilbao.
