Tune: Did I Ever Ride Freights? Huh! - Kronos Quartet plays Harry Partch's U.S. Highball: A Musical Account Of Slim’S Transcontinental Hobo Trip
Harry Partch, American composer and instrument maker, said his music was “based on a monophonic system of acoustic intervals and an expandable source scale of more than 40 notes to the so-called scale.” He was known for his adaptation and invention of instruments, including the chromelodeon, the chordophone, the kitchara, the harmonic canon and the bloboys. “ U.S. Highball (A Musical Account of a Transcontinental Hobo Trip)” for chorus and instruments was first performed at Carnegie Hall in 1944. It is an account of a freight train ride from California to Chicago, part of a larger body of work that Partch composed after traveling the country. He and his group, Gate 5 Ensemble, recorded on his own label, Gate 5.via
