 « It feels like the world is turning inside MAXIMIN’s songs now, and the resulting gravity has the weight of nature on its side. »

– Pitchfork.

 

« MAXIMIN’s cinematic soundworks are discomforting reminders that the universe does not at all belong to us ». 

– The Wire.

 

« French sound artist BERANGERE MAXIMIN delivers gorgeous, meticulously plotted soundscapes thrumming with subtle pulses, droning atmospheres, shifting surface details, and environmental recordings. Her sonic universe is staked to a rootless future. »
