Greatest Composer EVER
 
Harry Partch

If you never heard of him, Partch invented his own compositional method using a 43-tone scale and many instruments that he built by hand. He is known as one of the most innovative composers of the 20th century and was the first contemporary composer to think outside the box of conventional scales in music. There are only a few of the incredible instruments he built left in the world, located at a few university's and museums in the United States.

Damn! I never had heard of him, so this is interesting to learn.

Enjoy!

It's an amazing little world he created that few have had the opportunity to appreciate.

Go back to your own threads, populist.

You and I have a different definition of greatest. Innovation doesn't necessarily lead to greatness. :shrug:

I think this was really just a backdoor way of pimping Scott Walker again.
