The Harry Partch Ensemble
The Harry Partch Ensemble, under the direction of Charles Corey, recently concluded a five-year residency at the University of Washington, Seattle, and is presently based in the Seattle area. Both locally and as a touring group, it presents programs that focus on Partch's music while also including works written for these instruments by contemporary artists.
The Harry Partch Ensemble performs exclusively on the original instruments built by Partch himself, following his performative philosophies and unique treatment of the human voice. Experiencing Partch's music performed on these one-of-a-kind musical sculptures offers a dramatic, intimate window into Partch's all-consuming artistic vision.
