Extractions: An obituary reads: "Harry Partch: American composer, librettist, philosopher, publisher, record distributor, teacher, satirist, instrument builder and designer, sculptor, instrument repairman and tuner, theorist, experimentalist, iconoclast, self-taught musician, percussionist, adapted violist, conductor, author, retired hobo, seaman, sewer cleaner, dishwasher and kitchen flunky, comedian, vagrant, member of the Percussive Arts Society Hall of Fame, and graffitist. Until his death, Harry Partch had lived in San Diego and had been doing his own thing for more than half a century. Partch's own thing began with his rejection of the European masters and the traditional bourgeois concert-hall performance." [Numus-West; 6/74, Page 28] Harry Partch was born in Oakland, California. His parents had been Presbyterian missionaries in China who endured the Boxer Rebellion. Two years after his birth, they moved to Arizona to homestead, but never for long in any one place; after age fourteen, in fact, Partch never stayed more than three years in any single residence. He roamed all over: Hawaii at age twenty, the Midwest and East and back to Northern and Southern California. Partch's early compositions, dating from the 1930's, are all vocal, with small instrumental accompaniments. They are masterpieces of Americana, employing the language in a natural style uninfluenced by European traditions.

Juni 1901 in Oakland, Kalifornien, als Sohn von Missionaren geboren. Weitgehend Autodidakt, perfektionierte er seine Fähigkeiten als Instrumentenbauer und entwickelte in den 20er und 30er Jahren eine eigene Musiktheorie. Ausgehend von den griechischen Schriften zur Musik plädierte er für eine weniger intellektuelle, mehr "körperliche", von inneren Bewegungsimpulsen bestimmte Musik.. Er benutzte Mikrotonintervalle und baute zur Realisation seiner auf einer 43-tönigen Skala basierenden Werke sein eigenes Schlagwerk und eigene Holzblasinstrumente. Seine Hauptwerke sind überwiegend musikdramatischer Natur und beziehen durch das spezifische Instrumentarium zusätzliche dramatische Impulse. Lange von den klassischen Musikinstitutionen ignoriert, kritisierte er konventionelle Konzerttraditionen, die althergebrachte Rolle der Ausführenden und Komponisten, die Rolle der Musik in der Gesellschaft, die Wohltemperierte Stimmung und die Idee der absoluten Musik. Diese Ideen legte er in der "Genesis of a music" nieder. Zwischen 1930 und 1972 schuf Harry Partch, der nie offiziell unterrichtete, jedoch an den Universitäten von Wisconsin, Illinois und Kalifornien forschend tätig war, Musikdramen, Tanztheater, Vokal- und Kammermusik, die überwiegend auf den von ihm selbst konstruierten Instrumenten auszuführen ist.

The main item here is the 75 minute film from 1971 by Madeline Tourtelot: Delusion of the Fury: A Ritual of Dream and Delusion . Considered Partch's major dramatic work, it was a ritualistic, theatrical presentation, that established his international reputation and guru-like status. The film shows Partch's hand-built instruments performing an African and Noh-inspired score in some of his most compelling music in his mature style. Also included on this video, is 28 minute film, The Music Of Harry Partch , produced in 1968 for San Diego television. It documents an outdoor performance of

Extractions: The Harry Partch Special Collection Archive at San Jose State University contains a complete collection of autograph scores of Harry Partch, perhaps America's most original and iconoclastic composer.The past several years have witnessed increased activities from composers and performers interested in working beyond the walls of twelve-tone equal temperament. Technology, and perhaps a more sensitized community triggered by access to global musics, is now providing the artist with the interest and the means to disturb the patrimony of standardization which Partch originally challenged over 72 years ago.This page is in honor of and in tribute to Harry Partch and is intended to serve as a research resource for his work and a invitation to others to take a step outside.

Partch also wrote music based on newsboy cries and hobo experiences. Another of his innovations was the division of the octave into a 43-note scale. He designed and built instruments to play music composed from this scale. Partch wrote several stage works, including, in 1952, music for William Butler Yeats's adaptation of Sophocles' Oedipus.
