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.
