Kurt Liedwart is a sound artist, graphic designer and curator based in Russia. He has developed his own art and sound that combines accuracy of technology and imperfection of life, the use of the raw and processed. His work and life are less a study in contradictions of binary oppositions than a portrait of the multidisciplinary artist of the current century. Working across an eclectic array of aesthetic investigations, Liedwart’s work is guided by his interests in perception, context, movement, and memory. His diverse body of works — performances, sound diffusions, recordings, graphic design — helps to heighten the audience’s awareness of the present moment and enhance their sense of what exists on the edge of perception. His work draws on a wide range of sources, including raw and altered field recordings, analog and digital sound synthesis, to produce slowly evolving sonic fields. Through careful consideration, his works not only address hearing, but simultaneously expose the methodologies of listening itself, allowing audiences to explore the politics of awareness.
