Hi! I'm a producer & percussionist with lots of experience working for artists, companies and film industry as well as a multi-percussionist playing drums, marimba, vibraphone and all kinds of items with experience in contemporary, classical, pop, rock, jazz, ambient and electronic music. I'm always very curious about new music, so let's work :)

I'd love to use my experience as a performer, composer & producer to help you reach your musical goals.
Past performances include artists like Marina Abramović, Berliner Philharmoniker & Ensemble Modern, renowned festivals and touring throughout Europe, Asia and the US.

As an endorser of ADAMS Musical Instruments (NL) and collaborations with many leading companies my studio is filled with the best instruments and recording equipment.

    Working with Max was epic in the sense that what I was requesting was not the norm . It fits into a particular genre that is very difficult . Max completely hit the Mark!!

    Working with Max Gaertner on an experimental beat was an absolute pleasure. Max's talent for creating unique and natural sounds is truly impressive. He effortlessly combines experimentation with a captivating flow, leaving a lasting impact. The attention he pays to every detail, from layered sounds to smooth transitions, demonstrates his deep understanding of music theory and production techniques. Collaborating with Max was a seamless experience - he valued my input while keeping the deadline.

    It was a pleasure to work with Max. He's very easy to work with, professional and communicative, laid-back and has a positive personality. He was also committed to the project. Max played written parts perfectly. He also delivered interesting and useful improv parts that I could play with. I will definitely work with Max again. Thanks Max!

    Siyavash and I found Max great to work with - we had a Zoom chat to discuss the unusual 10/8 and 6/16 beats that we wanted and he combined a bunch of interesting timbres both traditional and contemporary. He was responsive to our requests for changes and a great communicator.
