Samuel Dunscombe is a performer-composer specializing in the use of clarinets, computers, and microphones. Samuel is interested in work that explores the multi-dimensional perception of time, which has drawn him to areas including improvisation, the performance of complex-notated repertoire, field recording, audio engineering, and live electronic performance. He has collaborated with a wide range of artists, from Anthony Pateras to Eva-Maria Houben; Taku Sugimoto to Iancu Dumitrescu and Ana-Maria Avram; Richard Barrett to Cat Lamb; Pierluigi Billone to Klaus Lang; Toshimaru Nakamura to The Necks. Performances include Maerzmusik (Berlin), Tokyo Experimental Festival, World Music Days (Ljubljana), Tectonics (Athens, Tel Aviv), Kontraklang (Berlin), the Darmstadt summer course, the Melbourne, Sydney, and Adelaide International Arts Festivals (Australia), MEC (Los Angeles), Elastic Arts (Chicago), and multiple presentations at the Bendigo International Festival of Exploratory Music. He has recordings available on Another Timbre (UK), Editions Wandelweiser (DE), Ftarri (JP) and Marginal Frequency (USA), among others.
