OriginEdit

Epitome of musical cringe, alongside its besties the banjo and sousaphone. Bane of many a novice player’s existence, blame for the accordion falls squarely on Cyrill Demian. Although reeds and bellows were common for making musical instruments, Demian’s 1829 patent was the first recorded example. A box with plates and keys was designed for both easy carry travel and learning simplicity with the untrained novice. Nineteenth century revolution period Europe was taken by storm! The squeezebox could be substituted in for any instrument, jilting a happy tune to pace folk songs with.

EffectsEdit

Transitions the user to play songs reminiscent of their homeland. Whatever the user considers a happy time, from their childhood upbringing to their happiest ever travel stay. Something familiar and comforting. Music slowly drifts until individual sounds and even familiar voices can be heard rolling off the keys. As these showtunes are only audible to the player and their intended audience, everybody else will just hear odd misshapen notes from a loon vigorously pumping up a box. Often leads to lots of glaring stares.
