Musician, poet and actor Adam Sippola began his artistic journey at age 5 when he took up classical cello training. As a teenager, he expanded his instrumentation by picking up a wide variety of musical formats such as vocal harmonizing and the didgeridoo. Now, as an adult, his compositions use loops, electronic improvisation, and different forms of percussion to create a multi-cultural, genre-spanning symphonic experience. In 2013, his song “By the Water” was included in the album Industry. Peace. Environment, a project designed to raise awareness of the environmental impact of northern Minnesota sulfide mining.
