Soothing Melodeon
« on: January 03, 2013, 01:09:54 PM »

I like listening to Arvo Part's album Spiegel im Spiegel (non melodeon). It is very simple, hauntingly so.

Are there any melodeon tunes that are in the same vein?

as I have no idea how that tune goes I can't come up with a melodeon ' alternative'.  However there are many haunting and theoreticaly simple to play tunes  that a DG box can manage easily - but to play  '' haunting'' requires considerable skill, particularly belows control.  Any chance of a clip of Spiegel

Grind Hans Jässpodspolska (CEG) always does my soul good, and as I relax more around the tune .. it gets better and better.

It's not often you see the words "soothing" and "melodeon" in such close proximity :)

I find a lot of french stuff to be very soothing, the best one I can think of is:

Some Naragonia tracks are extremely easy listening too.

Arvo Part's song Spiegel im Spiegel is very simple but it's simplicity makes it so relaxing  (:)

No prize for spotting the Melnetter ;)

The Spiegel Im Spiegel clip is too reminiscent of Ludovico Einaudi for my taste ::)

No - but it's not really about 'ABC'.  It's that off centre rhythm that stirs my emotions. 
Same applies to Pascale Reubens's music I suppose .. but I'd dance to that  ;)

Thanks, but I was referring to the naragonia tune that I wish I had dots for :)

Sayle:  I find many tracks on Duo Absynthe's CD soothing, especially the opening track Dave and the Amazone track.  I also recently bought Dermot Byrne and Floriane Blanke's CD (harp and melodeon) which has a number of soothing tracks as you would imagine with such a sparse but effective instrumentation.  My two cents  Charlie

I think the Goldberg Variations soothing in the extreme; be a bit of a challenge on the melodeon though....

George, you can hear a clip on Amazon:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Arvo-Part-Spiegel-Im/dp/B006GJEG36/ref=sr_shvl_album_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1357221956&sr=301-1

Didn't hear any melodeon in the clip, bit of a Brian Eno type thing going.

From my original question I mentioned that the source was non melodeon but I was looking for something in the same vein as it.

Many Thanks for posting the CEG abc - had just come across this tune on Andy Cutting's CD and it became a "Must Learn"

I play The Bay Tree, The Walled Garden, and finish up with the CEG...it shouldn't work but it does. CEG haunted me for ages, I was SO THRILLED when I learned it...with huge help from Nick Wiseman-Ellis.
