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 performer and audience. He also performs drone, doom metal influenced music on tuba.
Full of Noises 2019
Building on his work for Full Of Noises 2018, which saw him create a pedal-powered-greenhouse-of-sonic-delights in collaboration with artist Sarah Kenchington, Sam will deliver his half of a mechanical musical machine. Custom-built onto a special trolley this machine will meet with another machine built by Sarah. They will make music together for the first time on site at the festival; powered by you!
Sam has also been commissioned to develop a piece as part of the Crazy Golf Hack II.
