Max Vinetz’s music draws inspiration from various intersections between improvisatory, popular, and classical forms and aesthetics. His recent and upcoming projects are primarily concerned with the relationships between narrative, object, and artifact as they relate to music and other media, structures that circumvent linear narratives, the various interconnectivities between memory, desire, and the self. Max is a recipient of ASCAP’s Morton Gould Award (2018/2020), in addition to the Paul and Christiane Cooper Prize and the Gardner Prize from the American Viola Society. He was the 2019-2020 Emerging Composer Fellow for Musiqa, a chamber music organization based in Houston, Texas. A recent graduate student of both Yale and Rice University’s Shepherd School of Music, Max is currently pursuing his PhD Composition at Princeton University as a Naumburg Doctoral Fellow.
