Profile:
Adam Basanta (b. 1985) is an award-winning composer and media artist, whose work traverses electroacoustic and instrumental composition, audiovisual installations, site- specific interventions, laptop performance, and dynamic light design.

His sound and audiovisual installations, both solo and collaborative, have been presented across North America and Europe, and awarded in the Prix Ars Electronica 2013 (honourable mention, Hybrid Art category) and the 2014 Edith-Russ-Haus Awards for Emerging Media Artists.
