NOISE.TECHNOLOGY, 57mm TOURS
The 57mm synth has had its run. After Hamburg, I brought it to China & Hong Kong, John did workshops at Soho Radio, and we did a tour with performances and workshops through Denmark and Sweden together to finish things off.
Hong Kong workshop (more pictures here
I also wrote a longish article about the the China+Hong Kong tour (in Swedish) which is published in in Nutida Musik’s issue 271
The few leftover synths are for sale, from John Richards (sold out) and at www.noise.technology
. This is my new shop for instruments and things, expect more things popping up there.
IN HOUSE PRESS AND 57mm SYNTH
I’ve been working on >>in-house press>> a synth-and-workshop idea with John Richards (Dirty Electronics) for a while, involving storing 1024 byte political manifestos in EEPROM of a synth, live 57mm paper roll printing and building the the 57mm synth, a digital wavetable noise synth with microphone, touch and analog feedback (below).
The first event is at Noisexistance festival in Hamburg (kampnagel.de/noisexistance/)
this weekend, then one more in London at Soho Radio on the 23rd of March
. Great lineups at both events!
Similar events in the middle of May in Copenhagen+Gothenburg+TBD are in the works.
ETER FESTIVAL 2018
This Saturday I will be performing with Marcela Lucatelli (link
) at the Eter Festival in Lund.
UPDATE: there is a video of the performance (https://vimeo.com/255977040)
I'm playing in Copenhagen at Sorgenfri #12 at 5E in the Slagtehuse-area on the 12th of October. Unsure what I'll do. Probably something with my lab strobe, it's been a while. Bring sunglasses?

NOSTRILS AND EARS AND WET PLASTIC BAGS
An upcoming gig:
Näktergal #11, in Malmö, Sat. September 16th at Skånes Konstförening, 19:00. Näktergal website,
I've been planning a bit. The sounds will be based on the setup I used for my drone installation,
with microphones, and plastic bags used in a different way. Loud and wet.
A few weeks ago I made a drone installation with plastic bags, a test oscillator and mixer feedback, at Yllefabriken in Marieholm north of Malmö. It ran 22-29th. Considering the circumstances (budget, equipment, time) I'm fairly pleased. Some video footage here: https://vimeo.com/228869158
CAFE OTO GIG
Recently played with John Richards (Dirty Electronics) at Cafe Oto. (27th May 2017)

About Max Wainwright.
Max Wainwright makes experimental electronic and acoustic music, involving free improvisation, adapting to complex systems, and making & using terrible instruments. He does solo and collaborative performances, installations, sculpture, radio pieces, chamber composition, video work and more. As an artist, he is concerned with states of flux and how useless or broken objects can be sounded. He likes to engage audiences and things in conversation, creating instruments, trading, donating or receiving things, and performing on these. Using these, he explores human-technology interaction, deconstructing live performance, futility and effort, and performing through inactivity.
