harry partch at melbourne music week

i will be performing a concert [or two perhaps] of works by american composer harry partch during melbourne music week [16-23 november 2013]. the performance will showcase partch's works for voice and adapted microtonal guitar, which he composed during the early 1940's. most of these works have never been heard in australia, and one will be a world premiere! potentially also on the program will be some early hawaiian songs, a sea shanty, civil war songs, a hymn and avant-garde old time country of the era.
