Samuel Rodgers is a musician and artist working across improvisation, sound recording, performance and installation. He works with electronics: exploring feedback, amplifying objects and spaces, filtering sounds through materials; as well as playing piano. His approach is often characterised by restraint, tending toward silence and sounds on the threshold of perception; sounds in relation to space and the surrounding environment.
> Samuel has performed across the UK and in Europe, and has recordings released on Another Timbre, Cathnor, Organized Music from Thessaloniki and Copy for Your Records, with a forthcoming recording on Notice Recordings. He is a member of the Set Ensemble and co-curates the Consumer Waste record label. He holds a Masters Degree in Time-based Art Practices from Dartington College of Arts where he also studied BA Music Composition with Frank Denyer.
