Adam Vidiksis is a composer, conductor, percussionist, improvisor, and technologist based in Philadelphia. Equally comfortable with both electronic and acoustic composition, his music has been heard in concert halls and venues around the world. Critics have called his music “mesmerizing”, “dramatic”, “striking” (Philadelphia Weekly), “notable”, “catchy” (WQHS), “interesting”, and “special” (Percussive Notes), and have noted that Vidiksis provides “an electronically produced frame giving each sound such a deep-colored radiance you could miss the piece’s shape for being caught up in each moment” (David Patrick Stearns of the Philadelphia Inquirer). Dr. Vidiksis currently serves on the faculty at Temple University and the SPLICE Institute.
Vidiksis’s music has been recognized with awards from the Society of Composers, Inc., American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers, the American Composers Forum, Phindie Critics’ Awards, Guthman Musical Instrument Competition, Pi Kappa Lambda, the Omaha Symphony, and Blow-Up Chicago International Arthouse Film Festival. His works are available through HoneyRock Publishing, EMPiRE and SEAMUS Records, and PARMA Licensing. He is the ACF Steven R. Gerber Composer in Residence for the Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia for its 2017-2018 season.
Vidiksis has become known for exploring new timbral soundscapes in his electronic and acoustic works, often using the computer not only as a means of enhancing and manipulating the sounds he produces, but as a digital performer on equal footing with its human counterparts.
