Miniature improvisations on accordion techniques


This video tutorials workshop lets people discover and get to know the secrets and the tricks of extended techniques on the accordion. From available notation to excerpts of how sounds are produced, Silke Lange shows in nine miniature improvisations created for Labor Neunzehn what this is all about. Air noise, bellow shake, detuning, key clicks and yes, clusters as well are addressed. An extra short improvisation piece by the musician brings these things to life.
