Maxime Denuc is an electronic music composer based in Brussels, Belgium. 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 Sónar (ES), Villette Sonique (FR), Club Metro Kyoto (JP), Les Siestes Electroniques (FR) or TodaysArt (NL).

As a solo artist, Maxime Denuc covers a broad musical spectrum: Solarium (Vlek, 2020) is an organ-centric venture that relies on the emotional potency of sunrise to spawn an experience that is both musical and social, while NL (Zomerliedjes, Choral, 2016) strives to translate North Sea landscapes into noise.

In addition to these activities, he 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. In 2020, he started a PHD research under the supervision of the musicologist Esteban Buch, seeking to open a reflection on concert forms which could erase the borders between musical genres and audiences.
