"Within and Without" (2012) is a work for solo accordion with electronics (programmed in MAX/MSP and running on MacBookPro). The electronic modules are the classic filters and samplers that have been around since analogue days, and the central instrumental technique used in the piece is the tremolando effect – shaking the accordion in fast rhythmic repetition – usually synced tightly with the electronic pulsation. The title refers to the Beatles’ song "Within You and Without You", which provides some of the melodic motifs. The piece was premiered on Oct 6, 2012, at the EMPAC venue at RPI in Troy, N.Y.
