Permanent Resident - Single

Produced and released independently by Purple Flower Music,  the song was originally written for the film The Diving Bell and the Butterfly, directed by Julian Schnabel—the true story of French ELLE editor, Jean-Dominique Bauby, who suffered a stroke and lived with locked-in syndome; only his left eye wasn't paralyzed and so he was able to communicate using one eye. Using appropriated imagery, paintings by Frida Kahlo and collage Max animated the music video (linked)


Snow Child - Single

Produced and released independently by Max Sharam on the 21st anniversary of the murder of  JonBenét Ramsey. The limited edition single contains two tracks, the second being the master version of Permanent Resident.


The Gods Envy - EP
