Adern X is an artist active in sound and visual field. As a sound artist, his main focus is the manipulation and layering of samples taken from various sources to (de)forming an outer sound able to communicate something as art has a meaning only for who create and who listen, not a meaning "per se". What's heard is not only what's listened but also what is affected by the sound. The recording object, audio or video, is the basic building block of his aestetic as it's closely bound to theme of memory. As a visual artist, samples are replaced by photographies and pre-existing materials manipulated and layered to obtain almost onirical, or surreal, effects able to have a confrontation with his musical output.

Even if his visual works have been exhibited and published, he's better known as sound artist since his pieces have been diffused in various festivals. Critical acclaim testifies the progressive development of the initial use of loop and samples with the use of SW radio and field recordings to create a bridge between musique concrète and EAI. Besides his participations in many compilations he has published several releases through XeVoR records.
