There has been a shocking lack of accordion posts lately

I have just realized that there have been only three accordion-related posts during the past three months-- which is absolutely shocking!

Luckily, with this timely addition, we have increased our accordion posting from .096 to .125% in a matter of minutes, thus making us more competitive with other blogs in this genre.

In addition to greatly increasing our accordion posts, we lolled about doing nothing in particular this weekend. However, we also hung out with friends who accidentally got themselves into a bar brawl, played badminton and watched a small pack of pugs start a dog fight at a sausage-karaoke birthday party, ate cookies, attended a delicious omelette cook-off with mimosas and generally made a nuisance of ourselves. Later, we went on a beach pub crawl and accidentally mislaid a friend, who did not throw himself despondently in the ocean as was originally thought, but instead walked six miles along the interstate before being picked up by the police.


I've just noticed that none of this has anything to do with accordions, but I did stumble across an absolutely fabulous online record collection. I picked a few representative samples below:

No online record collection would be complete without the Ethel Merman Disco Album! She sings, she boogies, she puts her weight on it! From what I can tell, the best disco selection on this album is probably "Alexander's Ragtime Band". Can you dig it?


Here we have the incredibly moving "Music From Mathematics", which is performed by an I.B.M. 7090 and digital to sound transducer engaging in a "durational series", in which " augmentations, inversions, and retrogrades" are liberally used.... also, "psycho-acoustical phenomenon"


This one speaks for itself.


After you listed to the amazing orchestrations of "Balling in the Family", "You'll never be the same"!

And that's all we're going to say about that


Um, there will be a real post tomorrow-- we swear!

'Music from Mathematics'. Damn i would really love to hear what that record sounds like, being an avid avantegarde and experimental electronic music fan. Though, technically all sound can be represented as a sine wave which in itself is a mathmatical function.
