Biography


Adam Stanović started composing electronic music over twenty years ago. Early experiments with tape machines and a four-track mini-disc recorder led him discover the potential of recorded sounds, and he quickly started using computers as a tool for music-making. Ever since, Adam has considered the fixed medium as a canvass for his works, which are mostly acousmatic, but sometimes accompanied by instruments, electronics, film, and animation.

Adam’s music has been heard in over 500 festivals and concerts around the world, and is available on 12 different albums, including solo albums on the Sargasso and empreintes DIGITALes labels. His music has won prizes at, or been recognised in, composition competitions around the globe, 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).

Adam is currently Programme Director for Sound and Music at LCC. He previously worked at The University of Sheffield, and the Leeds Conservatoire, and composed much of his music in international studios, including: the IMEB (France); Musiques et Recherches (Belgium); VICC (Sweden); EMS (Sweden); LCM (UK); CMMAS (Mexico); Holst House (UK), Mise En Place (USA), Bowling Green (USA); Sydney Conservatorium (Australia).

Adam is regularly invited to talk about electronic music; in the past few years, he has given talks at institutions around the globe, including Harvard University, New England Conservatory, Swedish Royal College of Music, Conservatorium van Amsterdam, The Sydney Conservatorium, Bowling Green Ohio. In 2016, Adam co-founded the British ElectroAcoustic Network (BEAN), alongside James Andean, with the intention of representing British electroacoustic music overseas.
