UltraMax: Computer Wizard

www.ultramax-musc.com

Max I. Fomitchev-Zamilov / UltraMax /UltraMax Project was founded in 2001 by Russian-American scientist turned musician, Dr. Max Fomitchev-Zamilov, also known as UltraMax in the realm of underground dance music.

From the start UltraMax Project was about the fusion of classical and techno music. While many artists attempted to fuse the disparate genres none achieved lasting success. Yanni, Vanessa Mae, Alexander Holt, William Orbit, and DJ Paul van Dyk are among those who have recently took a stab at the fusion. The reason the previous attempts did not 'catch on' is because in order to be truly revolutionary one has to be equally proficient with classical music as he is with techno. This is where UltraMax's unusual upbringing plays to the strength of the Project: with background in classical piano performance and a Ph.D. in computer engineering UltraMax's psyche resides squarely in-between the genres. Add to that an infatuation with Depeche Mode, Tchaikovsky, and German composers from Bach to Beethoven, and you have a recipe for some unusual grooves. Inspired by Paul van Dyk and Mozart UltraMax combines the power of beat with purity of violins and cellos creating dance music that is very driving yet intelligent and melodic.

UltraMax has 9 albums and 4 vinyl EPs to his credit. His songs are played by DJs and dance radio stations worldwide with dance singles Letting Go (2006) and I'm Attracted to You (2009) rising to #5 and #7 respectively on underground dance music charts (according to recordpoolcharts.com).

In his studio UltraMax uses 8-core Mac Pro, Logic Pro 9, Access Virus TI, Focusrite Liquid Saffire 56, Spectrasonics Omhisphere, Native Instruments Komplete with Kore 2, and EastWest samples to create music.

The mission of UltraMax Project is to bring classics to the next generation. With the patronage of classical music declining orchestras throughout the nation are struggling to keep afloat. We hope that by treating classical and techno music as equals, by combining scores of classics with the original music, and by having UltraMax Project musicians perform alongside a symphonic orchestra we will be able to attract younger audiences to classical music performances. UltraMax Project is a creative collaboration of peers that relentlessly work on developing new ways of performing and presenting both classical and techno music.
