Overview:
Limited Edition LP release (180g vinyl) with previously unpublished bonus tracks + free download card. In late 1962 Harry Partch returned to California and began a project that would not only become the bones of a masterwork, Delusion of the Fury, but have a life of its own. In a too-small space within an abandoned Petaluma chick hatchery, Partch gathered the instruments he had designed and built—;new and old—;eager to once again expand the boundaries of his compositional fabric. He learned each individual part as he composed, establishing that it could be played. And on the Seventh Day Petals Fell in Petaluma (1963–;64, rev. 1966) was born of his exploration and assembled with that “;minimum of players”; over a three-year period. With this album we revisit an important work and turningpoint, guided by the original “;Statement”; Partch wrote for the first commercial release of the piece. Previously only excerpted, it is a voicing of his beliefs that transcends one project to illuminate an entire purpose. We also reprise exquisite notes by the late Bob Gilmore, who distills and explains the story of Petals so clearly and eloquently. As a bonus, the label has dug into the archives and this package includes hidden gems including the last track—;never before released—;which brings Harry back to life, playing and recording Adapted Viola for one of the last times. "I was completely unaware of this recording until I examined the outtakes and it glows, fifty years on. That Petals ever came to be, like much of Partch’;s story, stands somewhere between determination and miracle." —;Jon Szanto, The Harry Partch Foundation
