descriptions, reviews, &c.

Andrea Belfi (percussion), David Grubbs (guitar), David Maranha (organ), and Pete Simonelli (voice) perform "Ten Intrusions", following the model set by Harry Partch's 1949-1950 composition "Eleven Intrusions". Texts are by Ella Young (1, 4), Ella Young and Lao Tzu (5), Tsurayuki (2), Willard Motley (6), George Leite (7), Giuseppe Ungaretti (9, 10).

""The Eleven Intrusions" are mostly vocal works, composed by Harry Partch (1901 - 1974), after he moved into an abandoned smithy on a Gualala, California ranch.

Partch now had an opportunity to gather the instruments he had built to play his music. They had been inaccessible, in storage with various friends, for several years. Their presence, and the beautiful coastal scenery, were highly stimulating to his imagination [...] "The Eleven Intrusions" are among Partch's gentlest and most emotionally direct compositions.
