Graig and Larry Nybo are lifelong fans of Space Age Pop-maestro Esquivel. They discovered his music as kids when their mom brought home a box of Lps from a garage sale. They spun his records until the grooves wore off, choreographing dances, acting out scenarios with action figures.

Klavikon reimagines ‘electronic’ music without the use of conventional processes – no loops, no laptops, no sequencers. Instead, pianist Leon Michener employs a unique system of amplified prepared piano.
Augmenting the 88 keys with his own inventions and found objects – a custom made pick up, a robot dog- he delivers cascading batteries of percussion, sub-basses and abstract soundscapes. This amalgam of virtuosic technique and real-time analogue processing is at once connected with Classical traditions of Stockhausen and Cage and the experimental dancefloor idiom of Amon Tobin and Bochum Welt. The result is a fertile sonic territory, sincere in it’s eccentricity, restlessly inventive, that resists easy categorisation. And that’s the way we like it.
