A variation on his long term Sonic Graffiti project, Sam has chosen to reflect on our current divisions. Each piece encourages close listening and quiet reflection as an antidote to the bombast that seems so commonplace at this time.
Sam Underwood is a musician, sound artist and musical instrument designer. His work in musical instrument design focuses on the development of new musical instruments; predominantly acoustic and mechanical, with a particular penchant for those in the bass/sub-bass register. One of the central aims of his work in creating new musical instruments is to develop fresh interfaces with sound for both performers and audiences.
Sam’s work is exhibited as part of Interfaces, a Creative Europe project which aims to inspire more people of all ages and demographics to experience contemporary music and sound art and learn to incorporate the European musical legacy in newly found idioms and contexts. De Montfort University’s Institute of Sonic Creativity is a partner, along with nine other European institutions. Sound sculptures and Installations will be installed across the Cultural Quarter including Phoenix, The Curve Theatre, LCB Depot, and Exchange Bar.
