Kurt Liedwart is an electronic musician, mastering engineer, graphic designer and curator with a music career that spans over 20 years. Working across an eclectic set of aesthetic investigations, Liedwart's work is guided by his interests in creating abstract atmospherics, in stark minimalism in context of electronic music and in synthetic extremes of techno. His work uses analog and digital sound synthesis as the main instruments in his studio which also became a recording instrument that he passionately explores. His music is engaged with aesthetics of error and ephemeral beauty of nature. He continues to evolve his sound with an ambition to discover new directions and new processes.
As a curator, Liedwart focuses on creating opportunities for artists and audience to build communities that otherwise might not exist. This began in 2008 when he launched Mikroton Recordings with its sublabels Mikroton Digital and Laminal with a focus on limited edition releases by a wide range of world renowned sound artists, composers and producers. Since its launch, Mikroton Recordings has published over 90 editions and has received critical acclaim internationally. In 2013 he founded Mikroton Live, a series of concerts dedicated to presenting time-based work by emerging and established artists engaged in sound-based practices through performances, concerts, screenings, and workshops.
