Need a gift for a gifted musician?
SculpFiction is an electronic music project by former DJ and producer Max Steimel.
Max has been attracted by electronic music ever since. According to all the Cafe del Mar, Acid Jazz and Trip Hop records his parents listened to from his early childhood on, it has always been a mixture of both conventional and unconventional, deep and organic sounds that grabbed his attention and formed his personal connection to music.
Being taught the piano since the age of six and switching to drums in his early teenage years, his practical background in music was formed in both harmonic and rhythmic ways.
But also his obsession for knobs and devices that apparently fulfill a mystic, sound-generating purpose have always been a very inspiring aspect to him and finally led him to the studies of Music and Sound-Engineering, that he is still involved with.
When it comes to DJ-ing, Vinyl is his medium of choice, and a stronger, more percussive and mesmerizing 4-to-the-floor sound.
In his productions, his aim is to put the feeling and contingency of moments and places into musical form, exploring and expanding the boundaries of what is sonically possible.
Max uses everything from field recordings and cheap pocket-radios to both analogue and digital synths to tell stories that do not need any words to be told.
