"Concerts, talks, and films, celebrating the music and instruments of visionary American composer Harry Partch. During his life (1901-1974) he was known for his work in the tuning system of just intonation, and his decision to invent new instruments to perform in this tuning. These large, sculptural inventions are as iconic as the music Partch composed for them.

The NOW Society is pleased to present Charles Corey, Bonnie Whiting, nine instruments from the Harry Partch Instrumentarium, SONIC/Symbiotic and the NOW Society Ensemble in this mini festival of events at 8EAST!
