Adrian Wood is a sound artist, multimedia producer and social practitioner working at the intersection of landscape and identity. Adrian’s work centers the ear, drawing listeners in using sounds of water and wind, howls, whispers, seismic vibrations, and archival audio to explore invisible forces and histories that shape our social, ecological world.


Adrian’s social practice is multifaceted: they serve as a board of the Midwest Society for Acoustic Ecology; they co-organized a Virginia Queer Farmer Convergence in 2022; and, in 2017, they co-founded a DIY environmental justice podcast documenting resistance to now-cancelled Atlantic Coast Pipeline.


In their role as Multimedia Producer with the University of Virginia's Repair Lab, Adrian wrote and produced the podcast Wading Between Two Titans, which earned two 2023 Signal Awards in the categories of Sustainability & Environment and Diversity, Equity & Inclusion.
