Originally released in 1969 as part of Columbia’s Masterworks series, this album contains three pieces by one of the most idiosyncratic composers of the 20th century. Partch’s percussive, microtonal compositions, utilising outlandish custom-built instruments, display the influence of gamelan and Noh theatre. However this is very much American music, and the recitations of Barstow movingly captures the hobo lifestyle Partch sometimes experienced. The impact of this work is apparent in records by The Residents and Tom Waits, but still sounds unique and delightfully strange today.
