Maxime Guitton is a Marseille-based music historian whose main areas of research—musical minimalism and the history of mountaineering have led him to contribute to musical programmes, workshops, conferences, listening sessions, round tables, radio broadcasts and publications with colleges, art centres and museums including ECAL, École du Magasin, Carré d'art, Villa du Parc, Le Plateau, Bétonsalon, Le BAL, Fondation Cartier, CAPC and Center Pompidou. Between 2009 and 2011 he assisted the composer Éliane Radigue.
In 2017-2018, he was a resident at the Villa Medici in Rome where he carried out archival research on the composer Alvin Curran. Guitton is currently responsible for the artistic and cultural programming of the School of Fine Arts in Marseille.
