Aura - Samantha Wolf
00:00 / 00:00

Described as “haunting”, “enigmatic”, and “inspired”, the music of Australian-born, US-based composer Samantha Wolf blends the classical, contemporary, acoustic, and electroacoustic worlds, while being grounded in the notated tradition. Although she specializes in instrumental and electroacoustic music, her diverse catalogue includes orchestral, vocal, dramatic, electronic, radio, and multimedia works, and theatrical sound design.

Samantha has worked with many of Australia’s leading ensembles, including the Melbourne and Tasmanian Symphony Orchestras, Ensemble Offspring, Elision, The Song Company, Ensemble Liaison, Rubiks Collective, and Kupka’s Piano. Her music has been featured internationally at the Darmstadt Summer Courses for New Music (Germany), soundSCAPE Festival (Italy), Impuls Academy (Austria), Bang on a Can (USA), and the Norfolk Chamber Music Festival (USA), and locally at the Tilde New Music Festival, 2high Festival, the ANAM Set, and the Metropolis New Music Festival. As a sound designer, her work has been featured by Elm Shakespeare Company, the Yale Cabaret, and WYBCx New Haven.
Samantha holds degrees from the Yale School of Music, the University of Melbourne, and the Queensland Conservatorium. She is the recipient of several major awards, including Rubiks Collective’s Pythia Prize, Ensemble Offspring’s Noisy Women Commission, and the University of Sydney’s Sue W Composition Prize. She is currently Artist in Residence at the Longy School of Music of Bard College in Boston, MA.  For more, visit
