Adam Schmidt, Musician

Adam Schmidt is just seventeen and has been producing music as a hobby for the past year. His talent caught the eye of Band of Artists who quickly invited him to create music for a new performance segment, Drinking: My Love Story. Collaboration ensued. Feeding off of the narrative recordings that accompany Drinking: My Love Story, Schmidt composed a powerful musical score around which the dance choreography would ultimately take shape. Working tirelessly with BOA Director Sutie Madison to mold the electronic melody around her words, Schmidt completed the piece inside of a month, and named it Shattered Fantasies. The song, like the narration and the choreography, stands strong as an independent work of art, while delivering combined compliment amidst the other elements of the end performance. “It was an absolute thrill working with such talented artists,” Schmidt recounts. “I say artists because this is not JUST a dance performance. This is living art. It’s like being sucked into the surreal mind of the painter and it amazes me that I was able to get involved with something so unique and visionary.”
