After three and a bit years I've finally worked out why Squeezytunes exists - what its purpose is, it's reason for being.
Squeezytunes is a CELEBRATION of the types of instruments I like.
I'm fascinated by how instruments such as the accordion have migrated round the world and become integral parts of many, many regional types of music. There are lots of obvious examples like the bandonions of Argentinian tango and the cajun accordions of Louisiana. But there are lots of less well known styles of music out there, and the more I look the more I keep finding.
Also, I'm fascinated by the many variations in instruments that I like, from the early pioneers such as Cyril Demian (why doesn't he have a page in Wikipedia ?) to the cutting edge innovations that are continuing to this day.
And finally I'm just addicted to the power that music has. Music above any other art form has the power to affect us homo sapiens deep, deep inside. Why ? Music has no practical value unlike say, farming and hunting. So why then do so many people make music ? Why does every culture of the world that has ever existed have music as a fundamental part of its culture ? As Wikipedia puts it,
