Leo Svirsky (b. 1988, USA) is a composer, improviser, pianist and accordionist living in the Hague. His latest LP "Heights and Depths", for solo accordion of 185 basses, was released by the Brooklyn label catchwave ltd. in November 2016. This album, like all his work, explores how the instability of listening itself transforms the perception of musical semantics and affect. Disorientations of memory and spatial awareness are nevertheless bounded by a rootedness in song and story.
He has released works on Emanem (Different Tesselations with Veryan Weston), Slow Fidelity (duo with Katt Hernandez), and Ehse records (Songs in the Key of Survival). He holds a masters in Composition from the Royal Conservatoire of the Hague studying under Cornelis de Bondt and Martijn Padding, as well as private study with Antoine Beuger.
