Samantha Wolf is a Melbourne-based composer and sound artist. A graduate of the Queensland and Melbourne Conservatories, and the recipient of numerous awards, her music has been described as 'haunting' (XS Entertainment), 'enigmatic' (Blue Curtains) and 'affecting' (Partial Durations).
Samantha's practice encompasses solo, chamber, choral, band and orchestral works, interdisciplinary collaborations, multimedia, noise and speech-based works, electroacoustic works, and tape. She draws inspiration from diverse sources, including philosophy, sociology, and scientific and physical phenomena. She is fascinated with giving voice to the intangible, finding beauty in chaos, and understanding the illogical or contradictory.
Samantha has worked with many of Australia's leading new music ensembles, including the Melbourne and Tasmanian Symphony Orchestras, The Song Company, Ensemble Liaison, the Horsley Williams Duo, and Kupka's Piano, with whom she is an Associate Artist. Her music has been performed around Australia and internationally, including at the soundSCAPE Festival (Italy), the Impuls Academy (Austria), and the Norfolk Chamber Music Festival (USA).
An avid writer, her articles have been published by Resonate, CutCommon, and Rehearsal Magazine. When not composing or attending concerts, Samantha can be found running along the Merri Creek trail, or curled up with a podcast or non-fiction book.
