Sam Gillies

Sam Gillies is a composer and sound artist with an interest in the function of noise as both a musical and communicative code in music and art. His work treads the line between the musically beautiful and ugly, embracing live performance, multimedia and installation art forms to create alternating sound worlds of extreme fragility and overwhelming density. Sam’s music has been programmed at both national and international conferences and festivals, including the Test Tone Series at Superdeluxe, Tokyo and the International Computer Music Conference. Sam most recently completed a Masters in Composition at Goldsmiths, University of London, and is currently pursuing a PhD as the holder of the Liz Rhodes Scholarship in Musical Multimedia at the Centre for Research in New Music, University of Huddersfield.
