Harry Partch

Part one of a half hour program produced in 1968 at KPBS in San Diego, featuring music and interviews with maverick composer Harry Partch.

Harry Partch is best known as a composer of music based upon a 43 tone musical scale. When conventional musical instruments became too limiting, he was compelled to modify and then create his own--which are works of art unto themselves. Partch once said, “I am not an instrument-builder, but a philosophic music-man seduced into carpentry.”
