I particularly liked two of the accordionistas that were featured in your film….Pauline O. and the Lawrence Welk inspired woman, a brilliant songwriter (I forget her name). My story is so typical of the people you featured in the film….I studied and worked in the classical world for many years…..I was given an old accordion about 10 years ago…..and after I moved to the west coast found a very strange accordion band that afforded me the opportunity to play. The instrument freed something inside me as a musician….and that something was JOY. Music evolved from serious to JOYFUL. The accordion for me embodies the lighter side of life, the part that we so often forget about as we get older. When our band plays for people we transport them to the land of JOY. I found it interesting that your film centered on the Avant-garde and esoteric musical genres. I studied music at the University of Toronto in the seventies with an amazing teacher named Joseph Macerollo who at that time was also playing accordion in an experimental style. He introduced me to the twentieth century giants like John Cage and interestingly enough Pauline O. I believe that Pauline O. has a masterful understanding of the instrument as a spiritual portal. It was so very cool to see her in your film. Thank you for making this wonderful film. Good luck to you.
