I'm learning to play the bayan (Russian Chomatic button accordion) and the concertina, and accidentally fell into Terry Riley / Steve Reich territory.

String bass and percussion are from the excellent BBC orchestra plugin from Spitfire Audio, noise was recorded with the Soma Ether induction microphone, all into Logic Pro X with some delay and a bunch of plate reverb.

I wasn't sure what to expect, but I definitely dig it. Kinda reminiscent of something from the reference in my username. Also, +1 to the Spitfire Audio packs! I just have the free Labs stuff, but they're a great resource.

Thanks for sharing this. 🙂

This is really pleasing. I'm intriguing by the difference between the bayan and a regular accordion, and I love how you're using it.
