Max Sharam is a multi award winning/nominated composer/singer-songwriter, producer andinterdisciplinary artist living in New York City. A pioneer, activist, risk taker and feminist, Max's focus is 'transcendence' — to rise up and inspire. Her love for music, documentary and technology has led her to develop hybrid art forms – video performances with distinctive themes and digitally manipulated media constructions, her art and music is charged with an eerie, dreamlike quality,
appearing on first glance as whimsical, yet there is a disquieting aspect to her aleatoric play that exposes the vulnerable underbelly - as the ‘misfit’ characters struggle with the question of equality and identity.
