And because of their peerless craftsmanship and caring artist services, I know that if I need cymbals on the other side of the world, they're going to be there for me and they're going to sound exactly like I expect them to! Thank you Paiste!“

Biography

Max Jaffe is a drummer, improviser, and composer based in Brooklyn, NY. His solo music utilizes the Sensory Percussion system by Sunhouse, which enables a drummer to trigger and manipulate an endless variety of electronic sound. Armed with this technology, Max is able to create musical tapestries that are completely beyond the paradigm of the modern drum set. He aims to create a kind of soulful noise music, where the avant-garde intersects with the dance floor, where kinetic energy turns to stasis. Max is a longtime member of NYC art-rock collective JOBS, Amirtha Kidambi’s Elder Ones, and Leverage Models. He has toured extensively with producer Chrome Sparks, utilizing Sensory Percussion to help realize his live shows. He has also toured and recorded with Rubblebucket, Cass McCombs, Peter Evans, Ava Mendoza, Normal Love, Gavin Gamboa, Delicate Steve, David Wax Museum, Landlady, In One Wind, Steven Lugerner, and many others.
