Harry Partch

June 24, 1901 - September 3, 1974
born in Oakland, CA, composed during the Modern period
Harry Partch (1901-1974) was an American modernist composer who specialized in creating music for instruments of his own designs and tunings. During the Great Depression he was a hobo, and his experiences on the road inspired the vocal works, Barstow and U.S. Highball. Partch invented myriad new wind, string, and percussion instruments, modified existing ones, and used found materials. Partch's Gate 5 Ensemble performed many of his large scale, ritualistic works, of which his opera, Delusion of the Fury, is the best known. In 1949, Partch published Genesis of a Music, a book which elucidates his unique theories and methods. ~ Blair Sanderson, Rovi

Love Partch, but why does Pandora only have one piece of his at their disposal?

I bought a record (12"Vinyl recording used in ancient times)album of Harry Partch and was amazed to hear the sounds of things such as a 15 foot long guitar(made to play low notes below bass). He played and conducted his ensemble in concert with Stan Kenton at the Hollywood Bowl at least once before he died.
