‘sampler-cultureclash’ is an international collective of DJs, embroiderers, sound artists, textile designers, dancers, and more. It explores the connections between textiles and sound and the cultures of embroidery and DJ-ing.

‘sampler-cultureclash’ was commissioned to create this performance following two days spent at the University of Ulster, gathering sounds and images from the workshops, studios and machine rooms on the York Street campus. The piece will be created as part of the performance, using the material gathered over the residency.
