(Germany)

SWS23 shortlisted
Adje is a multiprofessional scientist and artist based in Berlin and a countryside retreat somewhere in Poland. He was co-founder of a Berlin underground techno soundlab, performing as DJ and visual artist in the 1990s and early 2000s. As sound archaeologist, he carried out scientific research for about 25 years, among others on the music of the Precolumbian Americas and the European Stone Age, with projects resulting in numerous research papers, lectures and keynotes on conferences worldwide. As a curator and exhibition designer, he created exhibitions on ethnomusicological and music archaeological topics characterized by immersive audio guided tours, such as the famous ARCHAEOMUSICA touring exhibition. As an instrument maker and instrumentalist, he performs on archaeological and traditional instruments, combining their sounds with experimental electronic music, thus closing the circle with his soundlab activities of the 1990s. His Teotihuacan soundwalk from 2022, created in collaboration with Simon Bradley, is nothing more than the result of several of his activities combined.
