Adam Vidiksis
Composer, Conductor, Percussionist, Improvisor, Technologist



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.
