Besides his work with music, Maurice has earned an international reputation in the field of social participatory art. He was an artist in residence at the United Nations at their headquarters in New York, Vienna, Nairobi, and Geneva as part of the research project UNKNOWN SPACES (2011-16). Maurice has had solo exhibitions and participated in group exhibitions, e.g. Temporäre Kunsthalle Berlin, Guggenheim LAB, Berlin Art Week/Galerie M, Museumsquartier Wien /Freiraum INTERNATIONAL Vienna, Tonspurpassage Vienna, teaches in music and art universities worldwide, and has been a permanent lecturer at the “Y- Institute for Transdisciplinarity” at University of the Arts in Bern (Switzerland) since 2009.
Maurice’s unorthodox and eclectic percussion line-up mirrors the zeitkratzer repertoire: the special drum set with heavy fells and a double bass drum is juxtaposed with a gran cassa, pedal timpani, tam-tams, glockenspiel, and if needed, bowed marimba with a lower octave. Industrial and noise music versus sound fetishism and James Tenney; a precise selection of smaller percussion instruments, including a concert triangle, small quarter-tone tubular bells, textural noise makers, a siren.
