Adam Adhiyatma is a guitarist, clarinetist, composer and improviser from Singapore. He is interested in formal, mystical and ritual uses of sound. He likes to think about voices; multiple voices issuing from the same body, hydras, the ensuing confusion, and the ensuing ecstasy. Adam’s work is [noisy, architectural, lyrical, angry, rhythmic, highly dissonant, very loud, very quiet.] It is connected by an investment in music’s social, political and mystical (bodily) power, a history in jazz, rock and experimental music (even though it seldom sounds like any of those things), as well as a deep curiosity about the phenomena that are composition, listening, and improvisation.

Bad Jazz is an electro-acoustic improvisation trio featuring, Tania Chen, Bryan Day and others. Using invented instruments, electronic toys, percussion and piano they create roughly rendered sonic landscapes.
