Partch: Eroica Dances
June 7, 2013 @ 8:30 PM - June 8, 2013 @ 12:00 AM
The Marimba Eroica—one of American composer Harry Partch’s custom-designed instruments—takes center stage at this concert featuring the works Plectra and Percussion Dances and Dance Pantomime (Kin Oedipus). The Grammy-nominated group Partch shows off the 847-pound beast, which is eight feet long and generates tones even lower than those of the bass marimba. The musician once wrote, “In the right room acoustically, the Eroica is felt through the feet, against the belly, and, if one sits on the floor, it ripples through [one’s] bottom.” More information
