Play the Cloud Chamber Bowls

If you haven't already, go read Emily's post on Harry Partch, follow the links there, and play (virtually) some of the instruments American composer Harry Partch built.

Partch was a microtonal composer. He split the standard octave into 43 steps rather than the usual 12. His music frequently had a complex, polyrhythmic core that drove the music forward, as you might guess from the number of pitched percussion instruments he built.
