Max Jaffe
Music Residency

Max Jaffe creates improvisatory multimedia tapestries that position the drum set within a continuum of music technology. Using sensor-based machine learning, digital signal processing, sampling, and audio-reactive animations, his work seeks to render personal meaning out of the impersonal data that surrounds us. He is part of a cutting edge of drummers that have embraced Sunhouse and their Sensory Percussion technology and have helped shift the paradigm of their instrument. His powerful solo performances exploit the physicality of his instrument to create narrative through movement, defying visual expectations and logic for what a “drum solo” can express. He is a member of JOBS and Amirtha Kidambi’s Elder Ones.
