The 2010 Festival of Microtonal Music















In celebration of the John Baldessari: Pure Beauty exhibition

Tuesday June 29 8:00 PM

Bing Theatre, Los Angeles County Museum of Art
5905 Wilshire Blvd., Los Angeles


Box office: 323/857-6010

The Partch Ensemble specializes in the music and instruments created by the iconoclastic American composer Harry Partch, whose body of work is among the most sensually alluring and emotionally powerful of the twentieth century. Partch was a true original and, like the artist John Baldessari, he reimagined the elements of his art and forged them into new and astonishing combinations. The program will feature a variety of Partch's compositions (San Francisco, By The Rivers of Babylon, Dance Pantomime from King Oedipus, Castor and Pollux) as well as the world premiere of a work by Victoria Bond composed specifically for Partch's unique, handmade instruments.
