Born 1976 in Bishop Auckland, England. Software artist and musician. He is known for his generative art software products released through his company Signwave, and as one third of the techno gabba ambient group, Slub. His theoretical approach to generative and software art informs his practice, including contributing to the early principles of the livecoding movement.

Adrian co-won the 2001 Transmediale software art award in Berlin, alongside Netochka Nezvanova for his Auto-Illustrator parody of Adobe Illustrator, and earned an honorary mention at the 2001 Prix Ars Electronica. He is also a board member of the UK Museum of Ordure, an ongoing collaborative art project with Stuart Brisley and Geoff Cox.
