Notes & Reviews:

‘Klavikon’ consists of 14 solo pieces performed in real time, with no looping or overdubbing. All sounds are made by the piano, by adding various objects of stone, wood, plastic and metal, and are then amplified. Credit cards provide rasping sub basses, washers hi-hats and rubber wedges kicks. With the use of bolts, screws and assorted electric toys, Klavikon reimagines ‘electronic’ music without the use of conventional processes.

Recording information: North London (2010-2014).
