Virtual Harry Partch

Category : Blog Archive Aug 8th, 2009

Thanks to the power of Micromedia Flash and the American Mavericks series by American Public Media/San Francisco Symphony, you too can play on Harry Partch’s instruments. There are also sound clips of the real things and of Partch explaining them. So if you’ve always wanted to play a Chromelodeon or perhaps the Gourd Tree with Cone Gongs pictured in Grout/Palisca/Burkholder, this is your chance.

Hat tip to Quinn for this one. A fun way to procrastinate!
