Extra Eclectic: Rogues Gallery

The keyboard of Harry Partch's "chromolodeon." Maggie Molloy
2hr : Extra Eclectic for July 7, 2019

We hear from a host of classical mavericks and innovators this time out, including Harry Partch, a firebrand free-thinker who devised and built his own instruments to play his microtonal music. Steve also features Meredith Monk, Terry Riley, and both Colin McPhee and Steve Reich, two composers who were influenced by the sound of Balinese Gamelan in developing their own unique styles.
