The website of musician and creative technologist
Adam Jansch

Adam Jansch is a musician and creative technologist whose practice covers bases across sound, art and programming. He is the mastermind behind electronic music wizard Dorian Zoyd, the open outcome record Futures EP and many other works, websites and apps.

As son of legendary folk guitarist Bert Jansch, Adam has been involved in music for most of his life, studying music technology and composition at college and university. During this time he created music under the monikers rev forty, Hydletts Zoo and Lost Zoyd; he was also part of laptop group HELOpg, and he played bass guitar on a number of his father's albums.

Cross-media works like Human jukebox x n, nullTV analog and A Sea of Goons were a hallmark of Adam's time gaining a doctorate in Music Composition from the University of Huddersfield between 2008-2012. An interest in iPhone programming flourished during this period also.
