Adam Basanta (CA)

Adam Basanta (b. 1985) is a composer and sound artist whose work traverses electroacoustic and instrumental composition, audiovisual installations, site-specific interventions, laptop performance, and dynamic light design. Across various disciplines and media, his artistic output interrogates the intersections between conceptual and sensorial dimensions of listening and audiovisual perception, the re-animation of quotidian objects, and the articulation of site and space. His concert works have been presented worldwide, including appearances in the MATA Festival (NY), Gaudeamus Musicweek (NL), CTM Festival (GER), and Akousma Festival (CAN), and have been awarded multiple national and international prizes, including Métamorphoses 2010 (Belgium) and the John Weinzweig grand prize in the SOCAN Foundation Awards for Young Composers (Canada). His sound and audiovisual installations, both solo and collaborative, have been presented in North America and Europe in galleries and institutions such as the Serralves Museum (POR), Edith-Russ-Haus fur Mediakunst (GER), Vitra Design Museum (GER), Laboral (ESP), Gallery B-312 (Montréal), Foundry Darling (Montréal), Titanik Gallery (FIN), The Center for Contemporary Arts Santa Fe (USA), and BIAN 2014 Digital Art Bienale (Montréal), and have been awarded in the Prix Ars Electronica 2013 (honourable mention, Hybrid Art category) and the 2014 Edith-Russ-Haus Awards for Emerging Media Artists. Adam holds a BFA in composition from Simon Fraser University (Vancouver, BC) and an interdisciplinary MA in composition and sound art installation at Concordia University (Montreal, QC).
