Title: Ergonomics in the Piano Accordion Keyboard
Authors: Nikolay Kravtsov

Abstract: The article identifies ways to improve the organ-piano keyboard borrowed into the accordion according to the ergonomic criteria of the “man-machine” system. The corresponding keyboard transformations are shown in order to expand the information channels to achieve the criteria of the existing paradigm and improve the artistic and expressive conditions for the implementation of articulation algorithms in sound extraction. After creating the variety of the organ-piano keyboard - the keyboard of the Kravtsov system - their genetic community in preserving the musical heritage of past eras and matching modern demands of the accordion culture is indicated.
