Sam Belinfante: Step piece
23 – 26 March 2009
Sam Belinfante (b.1983) is an artist living and working in London. In his projects he endeavours to bridge the gap between the visual and the audible. This is most evident in his graphic scores where drawings offer an interface between a performance and its direction. Whilst recently completing his Masters at the Slade Belinfante has shown both nationally and internationally – including group shows in Stoltzestrasse 11 Frankfurt, TactileBOSCH Cardiff and Tate Britain for Late at Tate.

Drip Piece was a six channel sound installation first shown at the Wolburn Research Centre in 2007. For Chambers, Belinfante’s piece will be recreated in a hidden but busy back staircase at the ASD which connects the main ground floor corridor with the studio and teaching spaces on the floor above. A set of piezo transducers and a condenser microphone suspended above the stairs will route the sounds created by people circulating through the space to a laptop, which manipulates the sound in real-time and replays it through six speakers.
