Harry Partch: I Was A Bum Once Myself

The next grouping continues into the 1950's, first with more Bay Area performances, and then following Partch as he moved to the University of Illinois. (Frank Garvey, the creator of OmniCircus, is the son of conductor John Garvey, who led Partch's productions at U. of I.). One photo, Concert in Lone Pine, sits on an easel beneath one of the many robots, and the photos continue into the 1960's with Petaluma and Los Angeles.
