As a composer, Samuel prides himself on writing music in contrasting styles with contrasting aims and objectives. Whilst some works are targeted at audiences including many people hearing opera or music-theatre for the first time (i.e. Die Schneekönigin, Vom Fallen und Steigen), others are aimed at a more elite and specialist listener of contemporary classical music (i.e. I.th.Ak.A., Cogra). In addition, collaboration, inclusion and outreach are important parts of his artistic belief system (see: Outreach).
