Artist Statement:


    Composed for accordion and electronics, Within and Without uses the rich expressive control and timbral palette of the accordion to “drive” a music
    of rhythmic pulsation. The piece is in a popular idiom, and its title refers to the George Harrison song Within You and Without You, which provides
    some of the melodic motifs. The electronic modules used are the filters and samplers that have been around since analogue days, and the central
    instrumental technique used in the piece is the tremolando effect – shaking the accordion in fast rhythmic repetition – usually synced tightly with
    the electronic pulsation.
