Hello I am Bioni Samp -- artist, musician, inventor, beekeeper from London

in introduceyourself •  2 years ago

Hi Everyone on Steem. I am keen to make the most of this new fantastic new platform, after being shadow-banned on FB and other platforms for the last few years. Especially after I started posting stuff about pesticide corporations poisoning bees and wildlife for profits in the UK and elsewhere. It's my #Publicduty as #Beekeeper to inform people about all things 'bee'.

Anyway I hope to add creative content on here as a artist and sound designer for 360 VR video. Here's some info from my blog.

Please follow and upvote and I will check out other steem creatives too. best b.

Bioni Samp
Known for artist, musician, inventor, beekeeper

He studied; 'Art and Design' at Wakefield District College. 'Audio Visual Studies' (Film, Video and Sound) at Farnham, West Surrey College of Art and Design (now University for the Creative Arts) and post-grad. 'Electronic Imaging and Sound' at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design, University of Dundee, Scotland.

Bioni Samp's first major installation was in 2013 at Barbican Arts Centre in London.
His 'Hive Synthesis' 24 hour installation and performance was part of the Hack The Barbican Festival summer show.

Other performances and installations of his 'Hive Synthesis' or 'Beespace' works followed at UK performance venues, galleries and festivals. In 2014 'Hive Synthesis' was performed to Human Beeing, a large, outdoor, video projection mapping by Berlins’ The Constitute, in Ropewalks Square, FACT, Liverpool in 2014.


'As a electronic music producer and seasonal beekeeper. I was inspired to learn more about bee frequencies and make a creative work that incorporated these bee frequencies in the hope of raising awareness about bees and their increasingly fragile ecology system'.

From 2013 to 2016 Bioni took his 'Hive Synthesis' show on tour, performing and exhibiting in Ottawa, Canada at Gallery 101 and the National Museum of Nature. Harplinge, Sweden at Harp Art Lab. Slovakia at Banská Štiavnica Gallery. Prague, Czech Republic at školská 28 and Nová Perla. Wroclaw, Poland at the 16th Media Art Biennale. Linz, Austria at Eleonore and STWST48 during ARS Electronica. Liverpool at FACT, reROOted festival, part of Hull 2017 Year of Culture and many other various live shows in London and the UK.


From 1995 he has published studio recordings, a series of experimental music releases, on UK and international record labels (several on vinyl) : Aconito, EMIT (UK) Harthouse (DE) Philtre/Kompakt, Instinct, Minimalizm (USA) RoHS Prod (FR) Musica Dispersa (ES) and Noise Music (BR).

From 2006 - 2016 he invented a 'Hive Synthesiser', which he has performed extensively with. The 'Hive Synthesiser' is an ever expanding, modular synthesiser made from recycled electrical components, that emulates 'bee sounds' and uses honey as a organic electrical resistor.
