Edge2.137 d’accordion

The accordion has this dusty feel, played by street musicians in klezmer or folk style. Quite a few accordionists are changing the way we look at and listen to the accordion. Not the least the Dutch duo Toeac, two young women playing the repertoire of young composers. The Motion Trio from Poland set their goal clearly: “to bring the accordion into the 21st century.” Their Playstation titled album is exactly that, playing, experimenting with contemporary sounds from among other sources, game computers. Avantgarde diva Pauline Oliveros can’t be missed in this broadcast either. As does improvisor Guy Glucevsek, who is present twice in this episode.

And the next few yodel lessons, we hope you’re making progress. At the end of the series, show us your talent, if not, we show you ours.
