Samuel Hertz

Samuel Hertz, composer and performer, has been awarded the first-ever DARE Prize, aimed at challenging artists and scientists to work together on new approaches to the creative process.

He aims to collaborate with researchers from the School of Earth and Environment and the Interdisciplinary Centre for Scientific Research in Music on a performance involving low frequency infrasound, which is below the limits of human hearing, but which can be felt, and may have an effect on mood and emotions.

Throughout 2017, Samuel will be updating his blog with reflections on the process.
