ODD NIGHT #18 _ Max Eilbacher
Talk & performance
Our next ODD NIGHT fabulous guest is Baltimore native and synth wunderkind Max Eilabcher. He’s the kind of person that would easily fly under your radar, although his CV would put many electronic music veterans to shame.
Before 27 he has already released the excellent Red Anxiety Tracers on Editions Mego, did a residency at the prestigious Ina GRM in Paris and has been doing some pretty badass 3D videos for Matmos. He’s also joined them on stage and conceived all the visual elements during their performance of Robert Ashley’s Perfect Lives. And he pretty much served Philip Sherbourne with his encyclopedic Ashley knowledge during their panel at Unsound last year.
He might be the Matmos protegee, but his music is truly his own. Using modular synthetizers and digital editing tools, his compositions are beautifully sparse pieces of ambient electronic music, abstract yet emotional.
Max plays bass guitar and electronic in the math-african-jazz sensation Horse Lords.
Also, dude can hang.
We start with an informal artist talk, followed by a live performance. Doors open at 6.30. Be on time.
