ABOUT: DETROIT HOUSE GUESTS
The Detroit House Guests project concept was conceived in the early 2000s and became a reality in 2014 after receiving a John S. and James L. Knight Foundation grant. The project was based on the "visual" artist residency model but for musicians. Each musician would come for up to a three week period with the parameter that we live, work and collaborate together. The results - a total anthropological sound experiment and a full length album. ADULT. is 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, 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. They 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 places such as Anthology Film Archives (NY), Distrital Film Festival (Mexico City) and Grey Area for Art and Technology (SF).
