Kurt Liedwart, born in 1977 in Moscow, USSR, is a multidisciplinary artist, composer, curator, graphic designer, owner and founder of the Moscow-based experimental and electroacoustic improvised music label Mikroton Recordings. He has developed his own art and sound that cross genres, mixing music practices such as electroacoustic and improvised music, noise and the overall history of electronic music. His work is guided by his interests in perception, context, movement, and the physicality of live experience. Through the use of light and everyday objects he broadens the perception of what electronic music is. Liedwart's diverse body of works — performances, sound diffusions, recordings, graphic design — asks participants to reclaim the present moment as a political act.
