Reveal Video For ‘We Chase The Sound’ feat. Shannon Funchess

DETROIT HOUSE GUESTS

NEW ALBUM WITH COLLABORATIONS FROM DOUGLAS J MCCARTHY, MICHAEL GIRA & MORE – OUT NOW

NEW TOUR DATES ANNOUNCED INC MOTH CLUB, LONDON AND OPTIMO’S 20TH ANNIVERSARY, GLASGOW IN AUGUST

ADULT. (Detroit’s Nicola Kuperus and Adam Lee Miller) have unveiled the video for We Chase The Sound, featuring Shannon Funchess of Light Asylum.

Watch it here: https://youtu.be/MBOXBE9V5Zo

Filmed and edited by ADULT., the video features the wearable sculptures of Detroit designer Levon Millross.

ADULT. explain the concept of the video, “How do you visually represent sound? This was our main challenge.  We concluded the most effective way to represent sound was by means of light.  This then prompted us to invite Levon Millross to showcase his incredible wearable sculptures.  Levon’s work embodies sound.  It is created out of sound, so it was the perfect fit.” And go on to explain, “This video reflects the space between art and life.  It has an ephemeral quality, which made us instantly think of the work of Jack Smith, specifically his film “Flaming Creatures”. There is a shared sense of rhythmic power, a placeless and timeless nature, a rawness, which is filled with pulsating, ambiguously gendered, creatures.  We find that just when you feel exhausted from the constant strobe and relentless bass, there is a compulsion to watch it all over and over again.”

ADULT. embark on a tour of North America in May / June and have announced a series of European dates including MOTH Club in London and Optimo 20, a day long festival celebrating 20 years of the Glasgow club night in August, full details below.

Detroit House Guests is a collaborative project conceived by ADULT. Based on the visual artist residency model, each musician came to ADULT.’s studio for a three week period with the parameter that they all live, work and collaborate together. The result – a total anthropological sound experiment and a full length album.

The album features collaborations with a whole host of musicians and artists – Douglas J McCarthy from Nitzer Ebb, Michael Gira from Swans, Shannon Funchess from Light Asylum, Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe aka Lichens, Austrian thereminist Dorit Chrysler and multidisciplinary artist Lun*na Menoh.

ADULT. are the Detroit duo Nicola Kuperus and Adam Lee Miller. They played their first live show together in Germany in 1997 under the name Artificial Material. In early ’98 they released their first 12″ under the moniker Plasma Co. Later that year, they released their first 12″ under the name ADULT. Currently, they have released six albums and 19 EPs or singles on Ghostly International, Thrill Jockey and Clone Records, as well as on their own label Ersatz Audio, (which currently has over 40 releases since it was founded in ’95). They have remixed over 20 acts as well, including Tuxedomoon, John Foxx, Death in Vegas and Pet Shop Boys (for Moog Music).

Kuperus and Miller also make sculpture, paintings, films, photographs, performances, videos and installations. They strive to intersect the lines between art and audio and have exhibited their work at institutions such as the Austrian Cultural Forum (NY), Mattress Factory (Pittsburgh), Detroit Institute of Arts (Detroit), MOMAS (Saitama, Japan), and Centre d’art contemporain de Meymac (FR). They have shown their film The Three Grace(s) triptych at spaces such as Anthology Film Archives (NY), Distrital Film Festival (Mexico City), and Grey Area for Art and Technology (SF).
