About Max Kickinger

When Max was born doctors were curious and gathered around to see the baby that never cried, which wasn’t curious for Max who simply didn’t want to break the silence with bad sound.

It was only when fancy 80s music was turned on that little Max was ready to shake his body. And while other kids used to get sleepy with Mozart’s overtures, it made Max feel hungry for more.

In school it was easy for him to cheat as he was able to hear even the silent thoughts of his class’s best left-brainers. And some teachers even assumed Max’s brain to feature an oversized area reserved for acoustics.

As you see, Max eventually became a composer and sound designer. He is now creating and producing music for a living (also because he couldn’t do anything else – he’s a right-brainer!). If you ever dreamed about meeting this kind of music person, simply connect with Max. Or feel free to hire him for one or more jobs.
