Long Bio:

Max Eidinoff is a composer, improvisor, and educator whose music is marked by creative audacity and dramatic flair. He incorporates avant-garde styles and rock music sensibilities into soundscapes characterized as both absurd and surreal. Max writes in a variety of genres including art songs, opera, concert music, computer music, film scores, and studio mixes. It is through a body of work which prioritizes storytelling and engages with cross-genre stylistic blending and ironic subtext that he aims to convey the complex adversities of the world we live in.

As an improvisor, Max plays piano and guitar. He is currently a member of the Peabody Improvisors Collective, performing in various Baltimore venues including An Die Musik LIVE and The Red Room at Normals Books and Records. For him free improvisation is a space for the exploration of sonorities, both informed by and informing his compositional practice: a continuous feedback loop between creator and creator-performer identities. His experience as a pianist also extends into contemporary chamber music, orchestra, opera, musical theater, and art song and choral accompanying.

Teaching, for Max, has been an outlet for both sharing and self-discovery. Through composition, piano, and guitar lessons, he encourages the development of free-thinking and analytical musicians from a student’s very first lesson. He places high value on understanding compositional form and technique, from both a composer and performer perspective, and introduces familiarity with 20th and 21st century music as foundational necessities for musicality. In addition, Max takes special care to tailor these values to each student’s individual interests, contextualizing their personal tastes within a larger musical history.

Max is also the founder of VisualScore, a music notation program focused on avant-garde practices such as graphic scores and aleatoric notation. By combining his interests in technology and creativity, through a mission-based organizational lens, Max aims to create a flexible framework of tools allowing composers to digitize any of their ideas with ease. Max’s role on this project covers fundraising, team management, and UI/UX design. Initial prototype development is currently ongoing with its planned release in May 2024.

Max obtained a BM in classical composition with a minor in arts management from SUNY Purchase, studying composition with Laura Kaminsky, Gregory Spears, and Kamala Sankaram. He is currently attending The Peabody Institute of The Johns Hopkins University for his MM, studying composition with Du Yun. He has also been a composition student at Seal Bay Festival, Fresh Inc. Festival, zFestival, the Choral Chameleon Summer Institute, Atlantic Music Festival, and The N.E.O. Voice Festival.
