Max Deste is an Italian-speaking Swiss songwriter and writer. He has published novel, poetry, drama, essay, pedagogical works, as well as numerous musical productions. The main issues addressed concern the sphere of emotions, relationships and physicality in an increasingly technological and virtual context.
Graduated in Literature from the University of Lausanne, he later worked as an assistant and researcher (FNS). He currently teaches Italian, history and civics in the middle schools of Castione, where he often offers educational courses to promote psychophysical well-being (mindfulness), creativity (writing, theater) and reflection on the use of social media (Media Skuola). Finally, he has been practicing Buddhist meditation for about three decades and has been director of the Shambhala Ticino Meditation Center since 2017.
From 1997 to 2006 he made his debut as a guitarist on the French scene. In Ticino, since 2007, he first founded the Bruit de Fond, with whom he won a couple of awards, and later My Dead Mind.
As a soloist, after having released an Ep entitled Il tuo cigno è morto in 2013, in 2018 he released the album Ok silenzio, awarded as the best album of the month of December by the very popular Systeme Failure magazine.
The new EP entitled L'antidoto is out on April 23, 2021, anticipated by the singles Chiaroscuro and Dolce far niente, which remained for some time in programming on the main Ticino and Swiss radio stations.
