Electronic Art Pop
ADM is the alter-ego of Cincinnati musician Adam Petersen, who studied piano at Cincinnati’s venerable College-Conservatory of Music and is one of the key members of local arts/music creative collaborative The Marburg Collective. With ADM, Petersen experiments with electronics and keys, creating compelling, unique tracks that feature sparse beats and clicks, eclectic song structuring and trippy, layered vocals. The result — as heard on ADM’s 2013 debut full-length — is ambient, psychedelic and strangely melodic, a slanted, otherworldly interpretation of Pop that is often mesmerizing.
