Kurt Liedwart, a Moscow-based musician and curator of Mikroton Recordings, developed his own art and sound that cross genres, mixing music practices such as electroacoustic and improvised music, noise and glitch, and art movements such as actionism and Fluxus. He plays a wide-ranging array of instruments such as analog synthesizers, electronics, light-controlled electronics, electromagnetic devices, laptop, sinewaves, field recordings, percussion processed electronically in real time.
“Tone” harnesses the radical aesthetic, knowledge and experience in extreme and reductionist electronics, sometimes coming over to melodic lands, and lies together different and disparate threads of underground movements to create a personal journey through multiplicity of intense abstract layers of electronic and synthetic madness, sometimes conjuring relaxed atmospheres of dronescapes, and cryptic songs.
