Harry Partch, Musical Genius

Partch was a musical iconoclast who created his own theory of music, a 64-tone scale, and instruments that could play the sounds he imagined. Performances of his music incorporate drama, which is heightened by the beauty of his instruments.

This website includes pictures of the instruments, Partch's explanations of them, and illustrative examples. Very addictive.

Thanks, JON.
