with the Beep Ensemble
Adam Vidiksis is a composer, conductor, percussionist, improvisor, and technologist based in Philadelphia. Equally comfortable with both electronic and acoustic composition, critics have called his music “mesmerizing”, “dramatic”, “striking” (Philadelphia Weekly), “notable”, “catchy” (WQHS), “interesting”, and “special” (Percussive Notes). David Patrick Stearns of the Philadelphia Inquirer 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”. Dr. Vidiksis currently serves on the faculty at Temple University and the SPLICE Institute, and is the 2017-18 ACF Steven R. Gerber Composer in Residence for the Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia.
