I am Composer/Musician/Producer from Pretoria, South Africa. I've been composing music for 14 years but have only recently decided to start going large. I released my first CD in 1996 and it sold over 1000 copies without any airtime and just from the DJ box in 1 club.
Why this name?
The name was derived from taking the words "Maximum" & "Volume" and combining them into "Maxume" - It is also pronounced as such.
Do you play live?
Although I'd love to do live shows, my music doesn't really lend itself to easy stage setup and live performance. I hope to find a way around this.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
I think downloaded music will revolutionize the music industry. People will have access to a much larger variety of artists and artists who, previously, was unable to get signed by a record label can now get their stuff out there to the masses.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
Yes & no.
I have changed my name 2 or 3 times as old ones started sounding corny to me. I've been composing music for 14 years but have only recently decided to start going large. I released my first CD in 1996 and it sold over 1000 copies without any airtime and just from the DJ box in 1 club.
Although most of my tracks aren't symphonic in nature, I deem my biggest influence to be Jean Michel Jarre. As far as styles are concerned, my biggest influences would be 80's ITALO, High-Energy and modern Trance, Euro-Trance, Electro-house, and Dance.
My favourite city would be Pretoria
Most of my equipment are computer based and/or software driven. However, I frequently make use of some sounds on my Roland SC88 Sound Canvas and some of the sounds my Technics KN-SX2000 Keyboard.
