Agathe Max


Between drama and beauty

A graduate of the ENM in Villeurbanne in Electroacoustic Composition, violinist Agathe Max works on a variety of musical projects: creating scores, string arrangements, live solo and group performances, sound design and compositions for documentaries, radio plays, animated films, short and feature films, theatre plays and contemporary dance performances.

After ten years of classical training, and graduating from the Bourgoin-Jallieu Conservatoire, she gradually moved closer to improvised music and the experimental scene. Since 2015 she has lived in London, where she has been active on the music scene, among others with the groups Melos Kalpa, where she collaborates with producer Marta Salogni, and Abstract Concrete with drummer Charles Hayward. She has several solo albums in her repertoire, and several other albums in collaboration with other musicians (UKAEA, Duane Pitre, Gareth Turner, Les Marquises, Laëtitia Sadier, Mésange, Jonathan Kane).
