Leo Svirsky is a composer, improviser, pianist and accordeonist residing in The Hague. With a background is in classical piano, he was drawn to contemporary music, improvisation and composition, becoming an active member of the new and improvised music scenes. Svirsky’s works explore the instability of listening itself, examining how this instability transforms the perception of musical semantics and affect. Despite the emphasis on disorientations of memory and spatial awareness, his improvisational compositions remain rooted in song and story.
