Motion Trio was founded with a mission to redefine the accordion and explore soundscapes far beyond what one associates with this instrument. Manfred Horak from Jazzeit writes “To achieve similar effects, a group like Pink Floyd required enormous equipment, whereas Motion Trio, only three accordions.” The Pigini Sirius Millenium accordions, considered to be the finest in the world, are used by the musicians to produce an extensive gamut of innovative timbres through the use of a variety of unconventional accordion techniques, all strictly acoustic-created. In their music they draw from a wide range of musical styles including minimal music, jazz, rock, techno and classical music. The Trio has performed in 28 countries around the world.
