ADM Submit Correction Claim Band
ADM [a delicate motor] is a musical effort by Adam Petersen, channeling sounds from keyboard
instruments, human voice, variable percussion thru a loop station, blending extended song
form with improvisation.
ADM, as visceral effort, is a juggling act, extending from a concern for the harmonious
integrity of things in space and time. ADM rests on a foundation of classical piano and
western music theoretical study, an acute and maturing interest in rhythm and percussion,
and the application and development of it all thru free and intentional improvisation.
This effort is dependent upon and grows from an interactive network of people, calling
attention to the relationship between the producer and consumer, the giver and receiver.
Adam Petersen is a central Cincinnati native and current resident. While studying piano
performance at CCM [The University of Cincinnati's College-Conservatory of Music], Adam
was building a cultural foundation with many other creative conspirators in their
residence at The Marburg Hotel, using the living space as a functional recording studio,
DIY concert venue and general quasi-public, creative safe space for the surrounding
Clifton / University community. This collective effort yielded many months of varietal
aesthetic events and inspired phenomenal expression, interactivity and maturity about
its sphere of influence. Since the cultivation of this place-based community, there has
endured a momentum maintained by its people, and it is by way of this momentous stream
which ADM navigates.
