The much-praised Swiss solo accordionist Mario Batkovic has a mission to explore and expand the accordion’s range of sound. His debut album was hailed by Rolling Stone Magazine as the best avant-garde release of that year. Batkovic’s music is challenging, experimental, mesmerizing and crosses conventional boundaries.
As composer, producer and performer, Batkovic combines a number of different musical disciplines, carrying the sound capabilities of the accordion to higher and unique levels. With this analogue instrument he manages to create a sound that’s almost electronic in nature, all without using any loops or effects. His music is a self-exploration to meaning and importance of sound. This search comes to life on his latest record “INTROSPECTIO”.
