“Microlocking III” is the third and fnal piece in the Microlocking series exploring microtonality, groove, and minimalistic techniques in composition. This piece sets to take advantage of the vast, orchestral-like qualities of the accordion in conjunction with electronic manipulation of its own sound. The materials in the tape only use detuned and manipulated accordion sounds, turning the instrument into an extension of itself.

This piece was written for Finnish-Canadian accordionist, Matti Pulkki, and was generously funded by the Canada Council for the Arts. It was released by People|Places|Records in 2021 as part of an EP titled “Microlocking”.
