Notes on recordings:
I recorded all audio samples with 2 microphones in stereo position with coincident capsules, one meter far from my accordion in frontal position.
There is no added compression or volume changes between takes, just a bit of added reverb.
So the difference in volume between a fortissimo cluster and the pianissimo air sound is proportional to the live experience.
My purpose was to give you a clean sound from a frontal position, not an artificial studio-balanced sound.
I would very much appreciate the following:
Send feedback to help me update this book, and I will take your suggestions into consideration on next release.
If you enjoy this work please consider buying one or more tracks from my last album published by Col Legno. This work is the culmination of hundreds of hours thinking, writing and recording, and years of experience. I would be very grateful for your help.
Lastly, spread the word to your composer and musician friends!
