Composer, performer, improvisor, and sound artist based in Los Angeles, California.
Adam Zuckerman makes music with acoustic, electronic, and environmental media in a variety of settings, from concert performance to sound installation to studio recording. His work seeks out hidden and fragile structures of the sonic world and explores thresholds of time, memory, and place, weaving emotive and conceptual frameworks through experiences of solitude, friendship, isolation, desire, and other basic conditions of human existence. These give rise to a world of music which offers a glimpse of an intuition into the full potentiality of the world.
Adam's work has been performed and presented by individuals, ensembles, and organizations such as Yarn/Wire, wasteLAnd Ensemble, Quartetto Maurice, Lucy Dhegrae, Arts Letters & Numbers, Coaxial, Distat Terra Festival, The Unwrinkled Ear Concert Series, High Desert Soundings. In addition to many music collaborations he has worked with visual artists, writers, filmmakers, and choreographers. In early 2019 Adam joined the online new music publication Soap Ear.
Adam attended the Bard College and Conservatory of Music, where he received a B.A. in Classical Studies and a B.M. in music composition. Following graduation he was invited to pursue a masters degree at the Kunstuniversität in Graz, Austria. Adam returned to Los Angeles in 2018 and in 2019 entered the MFA program in Experimental Sound Practices at CalArts.
