Sam Cave is a composer and guitarist whose music is steeped in the natural spectrum of overtones, and the resonance and tuning of church bells.
His work has been performed in the UK, Sweden, Norway, Poland, Lithuania, Italy, Australia and the USA by some of the most exciting young ensembles and soloists working today. He is an LSO Soundhub Associate Composer for 2017-21 and several of his pieces are published by Babelscores.
Sam studied performance and composition at the Royal College of Music in London with financial assistance from The Countess of Munster Musical Trust and graduated from the University of Southampton with first class honours and the Edward Wood memorial prize in music. In 2020 Sam completed a PhD in composition at Brunel University, London under the supervision of Christopher Fox and John Croft.
For Summer Studios 2021 Sam will create a new work for the Lantivet Duo (violin and piano) based on Cornish folksongs and traditional melodies that explores their shared Cornish heritage.
