Maxime Denuc is an electronic music composer based in Brussels. He co-founded Plapla Pinky, a duo noted for their atypical approach to club music, somewhere between rave, baroque and contemporary music. They released several records and were invited to perform at clubs and festivals such as Sonar (ES), Villette Sonique (FR), Club Metro Kyoto (JP), Les Siestes Electroniques (FR) or Today’s Art (NL).
For some years now, his solo work has focused on church organs. In 2020, he released Solarium on the Belgian label Vlek, an organ-centric venture that relies on the emotional potency of sunrise to spawn an experience that is both musical and social. Two years later, he presents Nachthorn, a new LP for MIDI church organ. The record was critically acclaimed, notably by Boomkat which selected it in the ten record of the year 2022. It has also been chosen as the soundtrack for the Chanel Spring-Summer 2023 Haute-Couture show.
In addition of his composer activities, Maxime Denuc works with performing arts and also devotes himself to research. He graduated in 2019 with a master’s degree from EHESS Paris in “Theories and Practices of Language and Arts”, with a major in music.
