The Accordion Sessions
Accordion made ambient-electroacustic album (2017)
18 JUNE 2017 ON TIME RELEASED SOUND
“I don’t know what have the accordion of so communicative that when we hear it makes the heart beat faster. […] Personally I would make a statue of this nostalgic bellows, bitterly human, that looks like a sad animal.”
Gabriel Garcia Marquez
“Textos Costeños”, Mayo de 1948
Giacomo has provided the beautifully dense and drone filled accordion ambiances, and Francesco has worked his magic manipulating and processing these sounds, with added field recordings, into a glorious and at times even industrially fueled, expansive wall of aural bliss and intensity.
Melodic, and yet fiercely relentless and driving at times…The Accordion Sessions is both a fitting soundtrack to these seemingly overpowering days we live in now, and an avant homage to this favorite instrument of more peacefully innocent and nostalgic times.
