Stemming from Max’s deep reflection on the healing and restorative powers of music during the darkest days of early COVID lockdowns, the seven tracks on his Daybreak album conjure exploratory, enveloping soundscapes that epitomize Max’s inventive cross-cultural approach to a truly global instrument, the hammered dulcimer. At once evoking Eno’s ambient works and Mary Lattimore’s harp compositions, Daybreak realizes the wondrous emotional possibilities of instrumental music. The video for album track “In It” was directed by Emma ZT, with cinematography by Uriah Kalahiki.
