Adam Vidiksis is a composer, conductor, percussionist, improviser, and technologist based in Philadelphia whose interests span from historically informed performance to the cutting edge of digital audio processing. Critics have called his music “mesmerizing,” dramatic,” “striking” (Philadelphia Weekly), “notable,” “catchy” (WQHS), “interesting,” and “special” (Percussive Notes), and have noted that Vidiksis provides “an electronically produced frame giving each sound such a deep-colored radiance you could miss the piece’s shape for being caught up in each moment” (David Patrick Stearns of the Philadelphia Inquirer). His unique approach to composition has been praised for its “outstanding control” (Philadelphia Weekly) and for being “restrained” and “magical” (Local Arts Live). His music often explores sound, science, and the intersection of humankind with the machines we build. Adam is an Assistant Professor of Music Technology at Temple University
