Adam Asnan (1983, London, UK) is an electroacoustic musician and location sound recordist, based in Berlin. His work promotes the aesthetic potential of sound-capture, amplification, and the virtues of both acoustic and synthetic spatialisation. Most recently concerned with ideas of 'phonogeny' (as a parallel to photogeny) in sound recording and producing works for instrumentalising reverbs.

His compositions, live performances and collaborative projects have been presented across Europe, and has numerous recordings published in all formats.

Adam is one third of VA AA LR with Vasco Alves and Louie Rice.
