Adam, Niklas


I examine the ability of work on the border between visual art and music to break loose from the traditional behavioural patterns of listening, rational thinking and immediacy. Sound, movement, perception and how we choose (or are confined) to interpret the outside world, is a recurring theme in my work. The approach is characterized by problematizing and questioning the performance of music, and especially how the traditional use of the concert situation closes off the possibility for other types of listening in society. The work is often demanding and patient.
