Samson Young at Borås Art Biennial, Sweden

The installation series entitled Possible Music (2018) is an ongoing work developed in collaboration with NESS who have developed a pioneering code-driven software that generates sound with virtual instruments, making it possible for Young to compose music for instruments that cannot exist in reality.

Possible Music #2 (2019) is a 16-channel sound installation of short compositions performed by virtual instruments that make reference to military “signal calls”—short tunes (typically performed on the trum­pet) that announce changes in daily routines in a mili­tary camp or on a battlefield—with titles like Attention Call, Fatigue Call, Assembly Call, Fantasy Call #1, and Sick Call.
