Drinking from Puddles
"Poignant, subtle, passionate, soul moving, otherworldly". The music of Adam Hurst has been used in independent feature films, documentaries, and art films, and live choreographed ballet among others. He has performed his original music throughout the world.
Mr. Hurst has released four CDs of original music. His most recent CD, called "Ruin" is evocative music for cello and piano. "Dwelling" is a collection of thirteen "poems" for cello and guitar. Music from his second album called "Illusions" was used for an original dance piece. In 2007, Oregon Ballet Theatre's James Canfield choreographed a 20min ballet to a Hurst original composition which Hurst performed live at the premiere to a sold out crowd at the Newmark Theatre in downtown Portland, OR.
