Pleased to share Samson Young’s sound performance at Hamburger Bahnhof, Berlin. Samson presents ‘Nocturne’ (2015), a sound performance, conceived around and in reaction to a series of night bombing videos that the artist has collected on YouTube, which are edited into a video that is stripped away of all sounds. Throughout the performance, the performer watches this silent video on a monitor, and attempts to accurately restore its soundtrack of explosions, gunshots and debris, by playing a live foley set using a series of regular household objects.
