Nothing wrong with a little bit of dissonance in music. It can make a piece more interesting.

Partch, not Patch. This one: http://www.corporeal.com/instbro/inst01.html

Even better, you can play a virtual one with a virtual Harry Partch beating it: http://musicmavericks.publicradio.org/features/feature_partch.html (a bit pointless the way I just did it, on a crummy old laptop through its internal speakers).

There are other acoustic instruments where you feel as much as hear the music (lowest registers of the organ or very low brass) and it's entirely normal in genres like heavy metal.

I too have found this thread to be very interesting and informative. Although I don't have a clue as to what Harry Patch has to do with music even after looking him up on Wikipedia as his seems to me more famous for being old than anything else. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harry_Patch

Too be honest I don't worry too much about the technical terms used in music. My theory is that if it sounds right then it is right, if it don't sound quite right chances are no one will notice, and I will try something a bit different next time.
check your spelling..

Jack, this is your reply, I can only add that I believe Harry Partch was the "mostist"

It wasn't my spelling I did a copy/paste tend to do that because I don't always trust my typing. My hands are better suited to swinging an axe than typing on a keyboard.

Anyway I found some more pictures of his MARIMBA EROICA because the one you provided didn't give much in the way of detail Looks like a giant xylophone to me. I also did a bit more searching. Is this the guy you meant ? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harry_Partch

I know this is off topic, but playing with his virtual instruments was the best 20 minutes I've ever spent while I was supposed to be writing an essay fro college.

I spent some time on the site where you can play the instruments. Some of his percussion instruments sound ok but most of them sounded out of tune to me. I guess that is why some people call Just Intoned Just out of tune. Oh well to each his own.

More heat than light in this thread! Still, very interesting!

Sorry if I got a bit tetchy. I was trying to keep it light but may have come across as sarcastic. :blush:
