JOHN SCHNEIDER & JUST STRINGS

JOHN SCHNEIDER & JUST STRINGS

Returning to REDCAT after last year’s sold-out performance of Harry Partch’s Bitter Music, Just Strings again explores the inventive composer’s custom constructed instruments, including the Chromelodeon, Kithara, Adapted Viola, 7 Bass Marimba, Diamond Marimba, Harmonic Canon, Adapted Guitars and the Cloud Chamber Bowls. The unusual orchestra performs Partch’s Castor & Pollux, Intrusions, San Francisco, the hilarious Barstow: Eight Hitchhiker Inscriptions from a Highway and more. The evening also includes a rare film of Partch in his 1958 Chicago studio, demonstrating his microtonal instruments, and overdubbing sections of his composition Daphne of the Dunes.
