Max Hunter


Max Hunter is a theatrical sound designer, engineer and acoustics/systems consultant. After graduating with a BSc in Physics from Imperial College, he worked at University College London in an experimental neuroscience laboratory, designing software and hardware to obtain, process and organise hundreds of petabytes of data from multisensory audiovisual experiments, before moving full-time into sound. His theoretical background combined with his practical experience working in the professional sound reinforcement industry in dozens of countries gives him an unparalleled skillset to develop and design immersive, cinematic live experiences and extraordinary, unusual projects.

Recent theatre sound design credits: PS. I’m A Terrible Person (Cockpit Theatre) The Noise Boys (Peterborough, Edinburgh), Club Mex (The Hope Mill Theatre, Manchester), The Choir of Man (Edinburgh, USA), Cereal Café (The Other Palace, London), and Gobsmacked! (China, USA).

Touring concert sound credits in the UK and internationally include 5-time Grammy Award-winning The Swingle Singers, vocal groups Accent and The Magnets, and the 18-piece professional jazz big band The Nick Ross Orchestra. His work has taken him to India, China, Israel, the USA, and much of Europe, as well as major venues and festivals abroad and in the UK, including the Royal Albert Hall and Leeds Arena.
