Leon Michener + Seaming To

IKLECTIK presents:

Leon Michener + Seaming To

Present a live soundtrack to A Page of Madness an early Japanese silent classic (1926) by Kurutta ippēji, using an electronically processed amplified Clayichord, piano, and live vocals.

Leon Michener

Leon Michener started piano from an early age, later going on to study classical piano at trinity College of Music with British pianist John Bingham focusing on 20th century works while developing a passion for Russian piano literature. Growing up he was exposed to a wide range of electronic music through his Fathers record collection, leading him to seek a way to perform a similar electroacoustic music live on the piano, that eschewed sequences, prerecording, or looping, committing to the goal of realtime music, created in the instant, creating everything through preparation and amplification. For this performance he will use an amplified prepared clavichord as well as piano.
