About

Hi, you can call me Max

I'm back to making music after a pause of some 20 years. Trying to get the hands and brain working again.

Infinite Elements started as a writing project at University in the early 90s with @gordon_m.
I used to hammer away in second rate indie bands and bring a bit of noise and feedback to the songs we wrote together.

I kind of lost heart after Uni and stopped playing altogether but now, thanks to the wonders of online collaboration, I've found my way
back to writing, playing, recording.
Although I've got a mountain to climb I'm really enjoying things and have received lots of encouragement so far.

My first track is a bit rough around the edges but I feel as though I've taken a huge first step by committing to posting it.

I'm also trying to contribute ideas and musical parts to tracks by @ProgTronic Nomads
A SoundCloud virtual band featuring :

Ankle_GB

Professor Moog
Infinite Elements (max Neumann)

If you got this far, then thanks for reading and listening.

Infinite Elements Max Neumann, Leeds, Britain (UK)

    Good track - reminds me of a band called "Wolf People" with a bit more grunge mixed in - excellent sound quality too

    Good song, floaty dreamy soft vocals over harder guitars - sounds are interesting too - drums are tight and light - some of the stereo spread is a bit unusual in places but that doesn't detract from a good song

    Continuous air of dark menace - like it - recording level is a bit low throughout -if you fix that then this will be powerful
