Scordatura Ensemble explores the idiosyncratic sound world of the American composer and microtonal pioneer Harry Partch (1901-1974), known for his self-built instruments and his innovative mood theories. The ensemble recreated a number of Partch’s instruments and learned to play them. Composition students from the Royal Conservatoire in The Hague took up the challenge and were inspired to create new work.
