Samson Young is presenting a solo exhibition at Team Gallery, NYC. A multimedia exhibition and performance, ‘Pastoral Music’ takes inspiration from the ‘Ghost Army’, an American WWII tactical unit consisting of artists and sound technicians, and transmutes the artist’s extensive research on military history. In divorcing the sounds of war from their violent context, Young appropriates the language of musical notation, now decontextualised, to reenact and repurpose sonic artistry as an infrequently considered aspect of history.
