I launched a new website today which will inevitably and sadly bring the death of this one… Oh well! The new one look nicer! I will continue to upload on here for a couple of weeks, but please turn your attention to http://samuelcroberts.com/ in the future! Cheers!
Here’s a full length, lower-quality version of myself and (my brother) Alex Roberts’ video installation from Fringe Arts Bath 2014, entitled ‘Sub-Essence’. It was created for the FaB Resonance show and explores the relationship between cymatic patterns and the resonant tones of the electric bass guitar. Enjoy!
Sorry for the massive gap in posts! I’ve since done my PhD viva (you can call me Doctor now…) and have been very busy with lots of bits and bobs! On Friday, myself and my brother Alex are installing a video as part of the 2014 Bath Fringe Arts Festival Resonance show (see preview below). It will be live from 5:30pm on Friday 23rd May until 3pm on Sunday 8th June at 35-36 stall street, Bath (opposite Roman baths so I’m told!).
Also, look out for ContemporaryArts ResearchUnit folk. Lots to see and hear from them (including a performance from myself at some point) as well as a host of other arts shows and, of course, the theatre, comedy and music of the Bath Fringe Festival. Should be a fantastic couple of weeks!
Bam! Here’s some sound from a Slow Matter Duo (myself and Lee Riley) session that took place early in January. Be sure to check us out on Wednesday March 26th at the Port Mahon in Oxford! We’ll each be playing solo sets along with Mr Glick, which will be followed by an impromptu trio. It will be sonically super. Enjoy!
Sorry for the massive gap in posts… Too much food and alcohol and not having to write a PhD anymore… Anyway! Here’s a video of a performance from last week. Slow Matter Duo (myself and Lee Riley) performing with members of the Oxford Improvisers. Thanks to Pier Corona for the video and all the other photos of the night. Enjoy!
Sorry for the long, long absence! Between finishing my PhD, working, unwinding and lots of other things, I’ve been quite busy… But now it’s time to get serious on the sound front again! Lots of new projects that I’m hoping to get going over the next few months, so stay tuned. With any luck, there’ll be prepared speaker arrays, improvised sound, scored works, duos, sound libraries… These are interesting times for me!
To tide you over, here’s a new improvised, textural piece called Falling Stars. Enjoy!
