Samm is a 22-year-old Nigerian-born composer, music producer, singer, performer and film-maker based in both Scotland and England. Graduating with a First Class Honours in English and Music at Aberdeen University, he is now keen to explore live experimental music opportunities in London. His experience in managing and curating events culminated in the very successful SUB.Liminal Festival in Aberdeen City, which boasted such events as a digital art gallery, live electronic music nights, and spoken word performance.
Digital art is increasingly important in Samm’s work. His recent collaboration with VJ artists vnc.ptk and flat added new dimensions to his live performance, sequencing and moshing visual data from a range of vignettes taken from his video work. For Samm, the importance of the digital in music is unmistakably linked to the sounds of the natural world, where everyday sounds can be recorded and transformed into lush soundscapes. Moving forward, Samm hopes to continue collaboration with 3D and CGI art forms to generate a new musical language for the growing variety of virtual art.
Samm’s work with Agora Digital Art began with his commission for music for the brand, and he is scheduled to give an upcoming talk about his practice.
