Maxime Godfrind (Brussels, °1990) is in his first Bachelor composition with Kurt Bikkembergs at LUCA School of Arts, Campus Lemmens Leuven. He received a musical education at the music academies of Sint-Lambrechts-Woluwe and Sint-Pieters-Woluwe, where he also played as a guitarist in various ensembles. He took his first steps in composing for choir with teachers Jeroen D'hoe and Kurt Bikkembergs.
Maxime mainly learned to compose himself by empirically exploring processes and techniques. As a child he grew up in an environment of music lovers for whom Stravinsky, Fitzgerald, Yorke, Zappa, Ferré or Evora were all equally called masters. His 12-month stay in South America and his experience as a university assistant in linguistics broadened his taste and sharpened his understanding of musical language.
As a composer, Maxime wrote soundtracks for theater and dance performances. He is also active as a singer-songwriter. In his eyes, music protects against the excesses of utilitarianism and reminds us of the possibilities of self-determination and resilience.
