-Gapplegate Guitar and Bass Blog

Los Angeles-based guitarist/composer/improviser Maxwell Gualtieri is a mainstay in the local creative music scene, regularly performing his own original music and the music of others. He is involved with notable bands and ensembles that include Stupid Man Suit, The Michael Mull Octet, The Matty Harris Double Septet, Saturn’s Rival, The Anthropic Ensemble and Sophocles Steve, among others. His work includes a variety of multidisciplinary projects, from composing and performing music for film and dance, as well as his more experimental audio/visual work that includes his ensemble Ladies and Gentlemen. Max is constantly refining his pour-over technique and occasionally uses a French press. In addition to his creative work, Maxwell is the Artist Liaison for the pfMENTUM record label and is managing director of the Rhodes School of Music. His latest release is a solo album of improvised music for electric guitar on the pfMENTUM label titled, For Los Angeles.
