Movement Music Festival - Detroit

Floating Points


Sam Shepherd better known as Floating Points, defies easy categorization with his diverse roles as an acclaimed artist, curator, and composer 🪄⁠ ⁠

As a curator, his records introduce soulful new sounds to the club scene, and his Melodies International imprint reinstates old classics⁠. ⁠ ⁠

Primarily recognized as a composer, Shepherd's eclecticism shines through collaborations with musicians like Mahmoud Guinia and his 16-piece Floating Points Ensemble, bridging the gap between the club and the concert hall⁠. Collaborating with acclaimed electronic music artists like Four Tet and Bonobo just to name a few! ⁠ ⁠

His 2019 album "Crush" showcases symphonic craftsmanship, blending classical sensibilities with Buchla synthesizer, while his latest work, "Promises," is a continuous 46-minute composition featuring Pharoah Sanders and the London Symphony Orchestra, highlighting his prowess in merging Saxophone, Strings, Keyboards, and electronics.⁠ ⁠
