UK Premiere. Ensemble musikFabrik perform Partch’s seminal work And on the Seventh Day Petals Fell in Petaluma from the 60s. Ensemble musikFabrik have recreated the microtonal Partch instruments, the originals being too fragile to travel from the US – this will be the first time that these instruments will be performed on in the UK.
The programme is completed by Ensemble musikFabrik’s particular interpretations of the music of Frank Zappa.
