Harry Partch (1901-1974) was a brilliant composer, music theorist, and creator of custom-made instruments. This book is an in-depth history of Harry Partch, as well as an exploration of his ideas and music through various documents, photographs, artwork, ephemera, drawings, and writings; all scanned and reproduced here, with detailed notes and comments by the editor. A very interesting, informative, and nicely produced book.
