Bio

Michael G. Maxwell is a sound artist, audio engineer, and educator with an interest in synthesis and electronic audio for the purposes of recording and performance. Maxwell's improvisational sound works focus on replicating experiences, dualities of positive and negative thought, and the conflict between them opposed to balance. Compositions often draw from concepts involving broadcast, surgical and pharmaceutical medicine, heavy industry, lateness, and lucidity. Individual works include the use of modular synthesis or feedback systems, either as instruments or installation objects.

Maxwell completed a Bachelors of Art in Radio, Television, and Digital Media in 2014 and a Masters of Fine Art in Mass Communication & Media Arts at Southern Illinois University in 2017.
