The Music of Harry Partch
A sampler of the work of Harry Partch (1901-1974), who was one of the first Western composers to work with microtonal scales (more than twelve tones in an octave) and to rebel against equal temperament, which has been standard in European common practice music since Bach (reference the Well-Tempered Clavier). Partch built custom-made instruments and created his own tuning systems in the service of what he called "Corporeal Music."
