I am a strange loop I am a strange loop a coiled and warm device all I've loved in this swirling grove
In the evening of my sullen saint of Eden where the vessels flow branching out and back into my flesh and sinking air into my chest where the lights are set inside my tambourine Cartesian cabaret from the fingers of the creeping chordate clambering onto the land darling I fear we can't outlast breathe deep and maybe this feeling will pass how I love to watch you move your body through my faded halls and rooms (how I love to watch you move it) where the staircase bends around the corner by the window on the moon (so it seems to me) fill your eyes and lay your head the fondest scenes are far ahead let evening breezes come along to fill your flesh and empty lungs yeah things will grow and then will die the sun will stop and so will I a million of my molecules will spin around the universe but here we are alive strange dreams colliding this is all you've wanted


A collection of two EPs, "Dances For Heather" and "I Am A Strange Loop", comprising music I created for the Cincinnati Ballet in 2009 and 2010 for their "New Works" program. Both years I had the pleasure of working with choreographer Heather Britt.

Peter Adams Cincinnati, Ohio

I've been writing and recording music since 2004.

In that time I've released four albums. I typically record all the parts myself, and combine acoustic recordings with digital and analogue instruments and processing.

Over the years I've worked in Philadelphia, Chicago, and Cincinnati, where I currently reside.
