    Harry Partch
    Harry Partch was born in Oakland, California on June 24, 1901, and died in San Diego on September 3,1974. His parents were American missionaries in China who moved to California just before Partch was born. His family lived in the southwest from the time partch was very young until he finished highschool. It is during this time that Partch says he received most of his musical influence. He was exposed to chinese culture and music through his parents, church hymns through his mom, mexican tunes,and the music of the Yaqui Indians. He also studied various strings and woodwinds as well as piano.
    Following the death of his father, in 1919, Partch's family mother moved the family to Los Angeles,California. He briefly enrolled in the Music School at The University of Southern California in 1920-21, but left stating that his teachers were "no older or wiser than he".
    It was during the period of the 1920's th the early 30's that Partch began to establish his ideas on music. Primarily self-taught, Partch studied music theory and composition in librarys. He focused on the music philosophies of the ancient Greece and denounced the theories of western music. He also studied

    This engaging book is the first biography of one of the great "originals" of American classical music. It provides a full portrait of Harry Partch (1901-1974), a composer, theorist, and creator of musical instruments whose life and works were marginalized and unconventional, yet who had an enormous influence on later experimental composers. Harry Partch: A Biography reads like a great mystery.... How did one of America's truly visionary composers, instrument builders, and rough-hewn individualists survive and persevere through horror at a young age, homelessness in the prime of his life, and nearly constant rejection and alienation by our culture? Bob Gilmore tells the whole story in this thoroughly researched, tragic, poignant, warm, and vividly memorable biography."David Harrington, Kronos Quartet "I visited Harry Partch in 1972 and had the opportunity to play on his instruments. I was interested in Partch's basic research on pure intonation, also in the totally original music which derived from his alternative tuning other than equal temperament and changed my concept of harmony."György Ligeti

    HARRY PARTCH Harry Partch (1901-1974), one of the greatest and most individualistic composers of all time, was not only a great composer, but an innovative theorist who broke through the shackles of many centuries of one tuning system for all of Western music, a music instrument inventor who created dozens of incredible instruments for the performance of his music, and a musical dramatist who created his own texts and dance/theatre extravaganzas based on everything from Greek mythology to his own experiences as a hobo. Between 1930 and 1972, he created one of the most amazing bodies of sensually alluring and emotionally powerful music of the 20th century: music dramas, dance theater, multi-media extravaganzas, vocal music and chamber music-mostly all performed on the instruments he built himself. With parents who were former missionaries to China, living in isolated areas of the American southwest, Partch, as a child, was exposed to a variety of influences from Asian to Native American. After dropping out of the University of Southern California, he began to study on his own and to question the tuning and philosophical foundations of Western music. During and after the Great Depression, he was a hobo and itinerant worker and rode the trains, keeping a musical notebook of his experiences, which he later set to music. In 1930 Partch broke with Western European tradition and forged a new music based on a more primal, corporeal integration of the elements of speech with music, using principles of natural acoustic resonance (just intobnation) and expanded melodic and harmonic possibilities. He began to first adapt guitars and violas to play his music, and then began to build new instruments in a new microtonal tuning system. He built over 25 instruments, plus numerous small hand instruments, and became a brilliant spokesman for his ideas. Largely ignored by the standard musical institutions during his lifetime, he criticized concert traditions, the roles of the performer and composer, the role of music in society, the 12-tone equal-temperament scale and the concept of "pure" or abstract music. To explain his philosophical and intonational ideas, he wrote a treatise

    HARRY PARTCH June 24 1901 – 1974 Composer, microtonal theorist, instrument-builder, writer, visual artist, satirist, philosopher, flunky, musicologist, copy editor, hobo, man of letters, publisher, iconoclast, record producer, eccentric, teacher…. The 12-tone equal tempered tuning system has been around for about 300 years in the Western world but is scientifically an impure system of pitch relationships. In other words, notes have been ‘adjusted’ or put out of tune from the pure intervals of the harmonic series. This is borne out by the fact of much non-western music having different pitch relationships to the 12-tone system and, of course, much so-called ethnic music has been around since the dawn of time. One of the most ancient scales exists in Javanese gamelan. In the Paris fair of 1898 composers such as Debussy were strongly influenced by these strange oriental scales and tuning systems. However, this wasn’t the first encounter by a westerner of such tuning systems. In 1580, for instance, Sir Francis Drake logged in his diary that the music of this land ‘was of a very strange kind, yet the sound was pleasant and delightful.’ Partch is perhaps best known for his innovative so-called 43-tone-to-the-octave scale structure. Partch realised that Western music since Gregorian chant was completely out of tune and set about devising a scale system based on the overtones of a vibrating string or column of air. He calls this system Monophony, as all the musical principles relate to ONE tone (i.e. the first eleven partials of the harmonic series). Partch spent 12 years researching the science and musical theories which led him to this system beginning with Pythagoras (6

Leven : Harry Partch werd geboren op 24 juni 1901 in Oakland,Californië_.Zijn ouders,Franklin Partch (1860 - 1919) en Jennie Childers (1863 - 1920),waren toen net terug van een missie in China. In 1904 verhuisde de familie Partch naar zuidwest Arizona,eerst naar Tucson,daarna naar Benson.Deze kleine dorpjes waren de laatste restanten van het "Wilde Westen",er leefden bijvoorbeeld echte vogelvrij verklaarden en ook enige Yaqui indianen. In zijn jeugd werd Partch dus beïnvloed door een amalgaam van culturen : in de eerste plaats was er de Chinese traditie die zijn ouders meegebracht hadden : Chinese meubels,vazen,boeken en zelfs volksmuziek en kinderiedjes die zijn moeder voor hem zong; daarnaast was er de invloed van het ruige "Wilde Westen" : de omgeving van de saloons,waar Partch de Mexicaanse volksmuziek leerde kennen en de muziek van de Yaqui indianen; ten slotte werd er in de Partch-familie ook Westerse muziek beoefend : Partch speelde piano,viool en mandoline.Bovendien had zijn vader ook een collectie Westerse muziek op 'cylinders'.

    Nowadays, when microtonality seems to be the 'in' musical buzz word among contemporary music seekers, it is easy to forget that it has been around for centuries in various shapes and forms.
    The 12 tone equal tempered tuning system has been around for about 300 years in the Western world but is scientifically an impure system of pitch relationships, in other words, notes have been 'adjusted' or put out of tune from the pure intervals of the harmonic series. This is bourne out by the fact of much non western music having different pitch relationships to the 12 tone system and of course much so called ethnic music has been around since the dawn of time. One only need listen to Indonesian gamelan to here these microtonal nuances which existed in 1580 and experienced by Sir Francis Drake who logged in his diary that the music of this land 'was of a very strange kind, yet the sound was pleasant and delightful'.
    Detailed explanations and explorations into this system can be found in Partchs' own Genesis of Music first published in 1949, reissued in 1973 then out of print until this year where soft cover copies can be obtained from the British Harry Partch Society.

Both his parents were Presbyterian missionaries . He learnt to play the clarinet and guitar as a child, and there was also a harmonium in the house, which he played. He began to compose at an early age using the chromatic scale normal in western music, but burned all his early works after becoming frustrated with what he saw as the imprefections of that particular system of musical tuning Eventually, he divised his 43 note scale and built an adapted

The A - Z of Composers Harry Partch Harry Partch was born in Oakland, California as son of missionary parents on 24 June 1901. Largely self-taught, he enhanced his skills as instrument maker and developed during the 1920s and 1930s his own theory of music. Taking his authority from the Greeks, he argued for music as a 'corporeal' rather than an intellectual art. He used the natural intervals of just intonation and built his own percussion and wind instruments for this purpose in a 43-note scale. His own major works were dramatic, their drama enhanced by the striking presence of his instruments. Largely ignored by standard musical institutions, he criticised concert traditions, the roles of performer and composer, the role of music in society, the twelve-tone equal-temperament scale and the concept of pure or abstract music. To explain his ideas, he wrote "Genesis of a music". Between 1930 and 1972, Partch, who held no teaching appointments, but had research posts at the universities of Wisconsin, Illinois, and California, created music dramas, dance theatre, vocal music and chamber music - mostly performed on instruments he built himself.

    built his whole musical world out of micro-tones, hobo speech, elastic octaves and percussion instruments made from hubcaps and nuclear cloud chambers. We are making an gradual effort to bring you the world of the Partch's hand-built instruments. The one-of-a-kind, unique-in-this-world, far-out, beautiful works of scuptural grace that are his instruments defy description. They have to be seen as well as heard. To be able to play his own multi-tone scale, Partch had to design and build every one of them. There was no one else to do it. He had called himself "a music man seduced into carpentry."
