Mikroton Recordings is an independent record label for free improvisation, mostly its electroacoustic direction, founded by the artist and producer Kurt Liedwart and based in Moscow, Russia. Mikroton works with improvisers who used to be active in the field of electroacoustic improvisation like percussionist Günter Müller, laptop improviser Christof Kurzmann, percussionist Jason Kahn, guitarist Keith Rowe, turntablists Dieb13 and eRikm, clarinettist Kai Fagaschinski, homemade electronics performer Norbert Möslang, guitarist Burkhard Stangl and others. It usually published electroacoustic, electronic and mixed works, trying to research a land between electronic and acoustic fields, pairing unorthodox instruments and materials. The label released two seminal compilation recordings for Austrian electroacoustic, experimental and improv group of artists known as klingt.org and Berlin Echtzeitmusik scene. Mikroton Recordings also hosts concerts in Moscow and St. Petersburg and runs Teni Zvuka festival.
