Biography

Double bass/electronics/composition
Born in Ribe, Denmark in 1981. Currently living in Berlin.

Living in Berlin since 2013, Adam is an active performer as a solo artist and with numerous international projects. A fascination with resonance, acoustics and psychoacoustics has led to the development of unique instrumental techniques and approaches to the double bass that causes the instrument to sing and vibrate in original and unexpected ways.

As a composer, Adam has written acoustic and electroacoustic music for smaller and larger ensembles as well as theatre, dance and film.

Formerly a member of the label and collective Barefoot Records, in 2016, Adam started his own release platform Noema.

Current projects include a duo with dancer Akemi Nagao, Gullet (acoustic and electroacoustic works for solo double bass), Tennis of all Kinds (with Julia Reidy), LUBB (with Pat Thomas and Peter Ole Jørgensen), SAP (with Paul Stapleton), Flamingo (with Chris Heenan and Christian Windfeld) and Water speaks of Water (with dancer Jenny Haack and percussionist Michael Vorfeld).

Additional notable collaborations: Peter Brötzmann, Evan Parker, Alexander von Schlippenbach, Rudi Mahall, Sofia Jernberg, Frank Gratkowski, Magda Mayas, Johannes Bauer, Tony Buck, Axel Dörner, Gerald Cleaver, Tobias Delius, Fred Lonberg-Holm, Paul Lovens, Mikolaj Trzaska.
