ADULT. (Detroit’s Nicola Kuperus and Adam Lee Miller) have released a new video for “We Are a Mirror,” featuring Nitzer Ebb’s Douglas J McCarthy. Filmed in Detroit between the hours of 6pm and 6am, the video is directed by Hazel Hill-McCarthy III – the Los Angeles-based filmmaker who’s previous work includes a documentary featuring Throbbing Gristle’s Genesis P-Orridge. Watch the video HERE. "We Are a Mirror” is taken from ADULT.’s collaborative album Detroit House Guests which was released in March by Mute.
Along with this new visual offering, ADULT. are pleased to announce a special performance at the esteemedMovement Festival in their Detroit home base on Sunday, May 28. Joining Nicola and Adam will be Shannon Funchess of Light Asylum who also featured on Detroit House Guests and can be seen in the previously released video for“We Chase the Sound.”
Recently, ADULT. traveled to Nashville where they performed in Jack White’s hallowed Blue Room at Third Man Records. The audio from this show was recorded direct to acetate and will be released later this year as part of the Live at Third Man Records series.
Detroit House Guests is a 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.
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).
