Hermax – Herman Maes

Herman Maes, aka Hermax, is an electronic music producer and very skilled keyboardist from Belgium. Since 2005 he has released 5 nice albums with different styles of electronic synthesizer music.

He also produces music for different purposes like child musicals and jingles for radio stations. Besides this he plays in a (live) band.

It’s hard to categorize the music composed by Hermax into one genre. You could say it’s purely classical music, played with modern instruments, others keep it to ‘New Age’ connotation. Maybe a mixture between retro, classical synthesizer music covers it best. When comparing his music with famous artists names like Kitaro, Jean Michel Jarre, Vangelis and the other big Greek composer Yanni comes into mind.
