About

Composer, performer, improvisor, and sound artist based in Los Angeles, California.

Adam Zuckerman makes music with acoustic, electronic, and environmental media in the form of scores, recordings, performances, and installations. His works construct and situate hidden and fragile sonic worlds at the perceptual thresholds of space, time, memory. He is interested in themes which explore the modalities of the human condition - the experience of grief, hope; the situated awareness of memory, transformation; the conditions of solitude, friendship; to name a few - these are woven through frameworks and situations which engage the ways in which our experiences are shaped by sound : here, where sound mutually entangles us as it folds us into the world. From this is a music which hopes to offer a rich, if fleeting, glimpse into the depths of the human condition and an awareness of the vast potentialities of the world.

Recent projects include: STARPERMEABLE, an album-length collection of melodies ; and for my neighbor, written for a violinist to explore at-home quarantine life through their instrument.

In addition to collaborations with other musicians. Adam has worked with visual artists, writers, filmmakers, and choreographers. His work has been performed and/or presented by individuals, ensembles, and organizations such as Arts Letters & Numbers, Blanton Museum of Art, Coaxial Arts, Distat Terra Festival, High Desert Soundings, LA Electroacoustic Ensemble (LAEE), Quartetto Maurice, Unwrinkled Ear Concert Series, Yarn/Wire, and others.

Adam attended the Bard College and Conservatory of Music where he received a B.A. in Ancient Greek studies and a B.M. in music composition. Following graduation he was invited to attend 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.
