Adam Stanović is a composer and performer specialising in electronic music.
Adam’s compositions employ a fixed medium, which is sometimes accompanied by instruments, electronics, film, and animation. They have received prizes, residencies, and mentions at competitions around the world, including: IMEB (France); Metamophoses (Belgium); Destellos (Argentina); Contemporanea (Italy); SYNC (Russia); Musica Viva (Portugal); Musica Nova (Czech Republic); Ars Electronica Forum Wallis (Switzerland); KEAR (USA); MusicAcoustica (China); Prix Russolo (France), Red Jasper Award (USA).
Stanović has released his musical works on 13 different labels, with two solo albums (Sargasso, Empreintes DIGITALes). He is regularly invited to work in composition studios around the world, having been composer in residence at: IMEB (France); Musiques & Recherches (Belgium); VICC (Sweden); GRM (France); EMS (Sweden); LCM (UK); CMMAS (Mexico); Holst House (UK); Mise-En_Place (USA); Bowling Green State University (USA); Sydney Conservatorium of Music (Australia).
Adam’s performances use large-array loudspeaker systems and the live spatialisation of sound. To date, he has performed at over 500 international festivals.
Adam is regularly invited to talk about electronic music, and has given lectures and presentations at many world-leading universities, including Harvard University, The University of Oxford, New England Conservatory, Swedish Royal College of Music, Conservatorium van Amsterdam, The Sydney Conservatorium. Adam’s journal articles and book chapters explore compositional methods and aesthetic preoccupations, analytical approaches to electronic music, the nature of performance interpretation and authenticity, the nature of digitised music, and reflections on the many philosophical dilemmas that electronic music seems to produce. His recent co-edited book Sound Art and Music: philosophy, composition, performance explores these various areas.
In 2016, Adam co-founded the British ElectroAcoustic Network (BEAN), which is now affiliated with the International Confederation of Electroacoustic Music (CIME). Adam is a director of the Composer’s Desktop Project (CDP), was Editor-in-Chief of the International Journal of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences between 2015 and 2018, and is Programme Director of Sound and Music at London College of Communication (LCC).
