Max Eidinoff is a composer, performer, and educator whose music engages with absurdity as a method for narrative development. He incorporates avant-garde styles, Romanticism, and rock music sensibilities into a soundscape that showcases an enthusiasm for risk taking. Max is currently studying composition at SUNY Purchase with Laura Kaminsky, Gregory Spears, and Kamala Sankaram. He has also been a composer fellow at Seal Bay Festival and Fresh Inc. Festival. Recent projects include a short song cycle commissioned to be performed by Blythe Gaissert and Michael Kelly as well as a 30-minute, quasi-theatrical cycle satirically criticizing various interpretations of the seven deadly sins. In addition to composing, Max is an avid performer of chamber music, opera, and musical theater. In Purchase’s New Music and Contemporary ensembles, he has performed works by other student composers as well as Steve Reich and Eric Moe. He has been an accompanist for choir concerts, musical theater productions, and NYSSMA soloists in multiple school districts in Westchester county. He has also musically directed multiple shows, working closely with and teaching singers and pit musicians.
