A pride of lions. A murder of crows. A fellowship of accordions.
An informal gathering of local Asheville accordionists developed into The Institute for the Advancement of Occultism and Aerophonics. We are committed to making concept driven performance art music that is actually kinda pleasant to listen to, and tinkering with sonic invocations that have the potential to open trans-dimensional portals in a hey-this-is-a-really-bad-idea-but-also-pretty-hilarious-ha-ha-kind-of-way. (That is our first song.)
We are the product of a simple formula: begin with a group of accordionists, remove irony, novelty, and capitulation, and proceed to make music with whatever remains.
