The performance Water Music is a concert by Samson Young and Michael Schiefel controlled by the heartbeat of a running performer. A brief moment of joie de vivre unfolds on the terrace of TROPEZ overlooking the now deserted swimming facilities.
Samson Young (*1979, Hong Kong) is an artist and composer. His drawings, installations, performances and compositions circle around sound as a core of aesthetic experience and as a medium to explore the vicissitudes of identity and rework historical events. As a practising musician, Young is a member of multiple bands and has collaborated with ensembles and orchestras worldwide. He presented Hong Kong at the 2017 Venice Biennale.
Jazz-singer Michael Schiefel (*1970, Berin) often combines his voice with loop machines and other electronic devices. Schiefel has taken part in a wide range of projects, such as JazzIndeed and Thaerichen’s Tentett, and cooperated with musicians like David Friedmann.
