decentralized and anonymized festival for art, music and theory
with participants

HOFFNUNG 3000 was a festival for music, art and theory in Berlin initiated by BLATT 3000 together with KLANGKELLER. It was an experiment in social, artistic and theoretical collaboration. HOFFNUNG 3000 did not have any curatorial themes, instead we asked one main question: How do we organise ourselves in our social, artistic & theoretical communities?

3 day residency at Platform5 in Beppu. We worked together as a group in the space and constructed what turned out to be somewhat like a sound and image play area ;-) it was quite a unique experience for all of us I think, with very little discussion we inhabited the space together and allowed different events and pieces to emerge over time.

One of the two workshops I ran at VERANTWORTUNG3000 festival at an old farm building outside of Berlin. this session was really special, somehow very ritualistic, we listened to a full recording once in the bar afterwards and then due to accidental deletion it was lost forever. This video is all that’s left, the audio from it was later released :-)

graphic compositional method

This is a composition for trio, or multiple trios, first performed and developed with Laurie Tompkins, Suzie Whaites and Otto Willberg. The idea is to have a process for making graphic scores, rather than a singular definitive score, which will then be interpreted in predefined ways ways during performances. In this first series the focus is on communicating your interpretation of the score to your fellow performers in a very immediate and spontaneous way. The parameters you’re working with are public/private and voice/object.

Solo
Tombed Visions

solo electro-acoustic saxophone album

Very happy to have my debut solo record released on Manchester label Tombed Visions. It was recorded expertly in my basement in Macclesfield by Jon Tippler. Here are a few words people have said about it:

“Solo” reviewed by Daniel Spicer, The Wire, 2015

“Andreae delves into an impressive vocabulary of skilfully controlled overtones, rapid keypad flutters and fragile harmonics, glistening like filaments held up to the light.”

“Solo” reviewed by Paul Margee at Louder Than Noise, June 2015

Sam Andreae plots a new course for the saxophone in this album of solo improvisations

Curiously Tea She Said
Curiously Tea She Said


composition for a large ensemble

A graphic composition for large improvising ensemble exploring small units of repeated material and displaced interactions. With this piece I was interested in putting up barriers to challenge the usual formal patterns which occur when larger ensembles improvise together. The very natural desire to mimic and find mutual consensus is challenged with arbitrary mental processes.

This was a one month residency at The Penthouse where David Birchall and myself made lots of fun experiments with transducers all over the building, a 60m long piano wire, radio microphones and beer can speakers. Mio Ebisu collaborated with us by painting 120 20cmx30cm artworks for the long corridor space.
