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).
