Adam McFillin is an artist engaged in producing sound, installation and performance works that investigate power through the protocols and structures of communications networks. His work is often sound-based and has focused on exposing the materiality of signal (Music for AT Musicians, On the Wire) and the abstraction of protocol (D:I:V:I:S:I:O:N, Loopback).
He has created scores for film, television and theatre, as well as sound design for location-specific media artworks. He is an actively performing and recording musician.
Adam's work has been shown at venues including Hallwalls Contemporary Arts Centre and Squeaky Wheel Film & Media Art Center, and at the Radical Networks and Our Networks conferences. His commissioned sound work has been heard at The Arnold Arboretum of Harvard University, MOCO Panacée - Montpellier Contemporain, Australian Centre for the Movng Image (ACMI) and on ABC (Australia) television.
Adam received an MFA from the University at Buffalo Department of Media Study, a Graduate Certificate in Screen Music from Australian Film, Television and Radio School (AFTRS), and a Bachelor of Information Technology from Queensland University of Technology.
