FROM WHENCE HE CAME

Still pinching myself about having been part of the quartet that recently recorded Elliot Vaughan’s brilliant soundtrack for the play “From Whence He Came”. This is the first time that I have had the experience of sitting in for an all day session with orchestral players. I felt like any minute someone was going to stand up and say, “Wait a minute –why is there an accordion in the room?” Elliot is a truly adventurous and delightful composer. His score made me do things with my accordion that I had never even thought of before. One song was all scripted bellow moves and key clicks! It was an adventure in accordion playing that I will not soon forget. The material is surreal and savagely beautiful and I have adopted the solo accordion piece Rose’s Gift (above) as one of my bastard children. You can hear and even buy some of this magical potion right here.
