Maxime Le Moing | Record | Multimedia | Photo | French version

Maxime Le Moing breathes in Metz. He worked for 10 years around mash-ups and cinematographic soundwriting. His films have had international distribution. Also hired full time as a listening walker, since 2019 he has decided to untie himself from the image to develop improvised unidentified sound encounters in order to break down the barriers of music. Affiliated with the practice of agriculture and the trumpet, he works in radio, sound poetry, neo-animist musical performance and sound effects.

His creations are punctuated by the seasons: in winter, he runs Lettrist poetry workshops for young audiences by teaching them the beat box, in spring he records the sound of photosynthesis in plants and develops a thesis entitled "Nature prefers the harsh-noise than classical music ”, in summer he wanders with his trumpet and his noisemaker's case to revive the dead spaces of the capitaloscene, in autumn he arranges roundabouts, wasteland and small woods to restore free wandering to taste one night sex encounters. A way to surprise art overflowing.

Trained at ESAL Metz, IAD in Belgium, as well as by the post-diploma Arts and sound creations in Bourges, he sharpens his ears thanks to meetings with Jérome Joy, Claudio Pazienza, Damien Manivel, Lionel Marchetti, Antoine Boute, Yvan Etienne, Violaine Lochu.
