Victor Adán’s first musical experiments took place during the late 1980s, when he began playing on an upright piano and using a computer. From the beginning, both machines served him well as musical instruments. Adán then discovered the uncompromising music of composer Julio Estrada and, in 1997, he joined Estrada’s deschooling Music Creation Lab at the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México. In 2005 he earned an MS in media technology and digital communications from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and in 2010 a DMA from Columbia University. He currently lives in New York and spends his time composing and programming software. (Photo of Victor Adán by Gildardo Cruz-Rojas & Brian Whitman; found here).
