In the arts, maximalism, a reaction against minimalism, is an esthetic of excess and redundancy. The philosophy can be summarized as “more is more” contrasted with minimalist motto “less is more”.
“More is more”! We don’t take only one guitar player, but three. Not one drummer, but two drummers: this is Maximalistica!
This band, based in Copenhagen Denmark, is a fresh breeze in the music scene of this era. Maximalistica is a vital gathering of five different nationalities coming from the northern regions of Europe. Maximalistica experiments with new playing techniques and fresh ways to improvise. The unconventional instrumentation enables extended dynamics and colorful sound palettes.
A concert with Maximalistica is a journey. On our show free improvisations can escalate into gorgeous mayhem or the most complex a-tonal sound-scape can turn into a catchy Indie rock chorus!
Milton Babbitt: “to make music as much as it can be rather than as little as one can get away with.”
