Rudy Adrian (born ca. 1969) is an ambient musician from Dunedin in New Zealand. Working in styles ranging from beatless atmospheric music to heavily sequenced electronica, Adrian has released several albums of his music, as well as producing sound track for television in his profession as a sound engineer for Taylormade Media. He is also one of the hosts of a radio programme specialising in ambient music on the Dunedin campus radio station, Radio One.
Adrian's albums form two distinct series: "Atmospheric Works" and "Sequencer Sketches". His first mini-album, SubAntarctica (initially released under his birth name of Rudy Hueting) was as part of a multi-media collaboration on art in the Subantarctic, and involved him and several other artists travelling to the Campbell and Auckland Islands and producing work based on the experience. His albums have included collaborations with New Zealand flautist Nick Prosser and Dutch keyboardist Ron Boots.
Adrian has toured New Zealand and the United States, presenting works in a variety of venues ranging from concert halls to planetaria.
