Konstantin Adjer (b. 1970, Moscow) continually deals with music in his artworks. It is no accident, since he is a professional musician as well as an artist. Adjer majored in conducting and woodwind instruments at the Gnesin Musical College, and only years later did his artistic career begin with a course from the legendary artist Yuri Sobolev at the International Workshop of Synthesis Theatre and Animation Interstudio. From 1996- 2000 Adjer was a member of "Emergency Exit," an art-group based in St. Petersburg, and since 2007 has been a member of the Moscow-based artist group "Escape." Since 1996 he has exhibited in international exhibitions including the International Videoart Biennial, Barcelona; MMOMA, Moscow; 4th Moscow Biennale of Contemporary Art; and the International Festival for Creative Music "Perspectives," Sweden.
