And On The Seventh Day Petals Fell In Petaluma
And on the Seventh Day Petals Fell in Petaluma (1963-64, rev.
1966) was born of his exploration and assembled with that “minimum of players” over a three-year period. With this album we revisit an important work and turningpoint, guided by the original “Statement” Partch wrote for the first commercial release of the piece. Previously only excerpted, it is a voicing of his beliefs that transcends one project to illuminate an entire purpose.
