A 14 track experimental album (56m 35s) — released June 12th 2015 on nonclassical

Klavikon represents an entirely new approach to the piano, drawing on the experimental work of Tudor and Cage to transform the instrument into a factory of haunting, percussive textures. With the use of bolts, screws and assorted electric toys, Klavikon reimagines 'electronic' music without the use of conventional processes.

Indebted both to the American experimental tradition and to the postwar European innovations of Stockhausen and Ligeti, the album comprises a suite of brand new, visceral compositions.

Leon Michener studied classical piano and composition at Trinity College and the Royal Academy of Music. His recordings have been broadcast on BBC Radio 3 and recent performances include Stockholm Museum of Modern Art, The Roundhouse and Kings Place.
