swarbles; nino quincampoix.
the elephant 6 townhall hoursong weekly compilation is up! i did two songs this week, because the theme was fictional characters, and a lot of the people i am in love with don’t really exist. i wanted to do more (stephane miroux, holden caulfield, alyosha karamazov, balki bartokomous, etc.), but it is really really warm in here and having the window shut for any amount of time was wicked unpleasant.
this first song is an instrumental yann tiersen-sounding song for nino quincampoix from amélie, as played on nino quincampoix (my accordion is a nino accordion that was made in italy) and a xylophone, and maybe i sing a bit of a chevalier song at the end because it was in my head. nino is a bit wheezy and rattley. i found a hole in his bellows and i duct taped it, but i think he requires more help that i’m not capable of providing.
available to download from cllct and all of the songs are available as a zipfile on mediafire.
