She Rises from the Water

By Adrian Hutapea

Adrian Hutapea is a multi-instrumentalist, composer, performer, and creative collaborator based in Portland, Oregon. He creates ambient, technically layered and textural sonic backdrops for dance. With a background in classical piano and improvisational jazz, he relishes in working with live performers where the work unfolds with a moment to moment responsiveness held within a larger structure. As a photographer with a primary focus on landscape and nature photography, Adrian brings a contemplative, meditative outlook to his practice both in the field and in post production. Influenced by his background as a musician and his interest in the physics of energy, frequency, and vibration, Adrian synthesizes the tangible physical world with the intangible subtle energies of emotion and psyche throughout his work.
