about

The debut recording of Newband, an ensemble specializing in microtonal music and focused around a unique instrument, the zoomoozophone. Invented by Dean Drummond (who was a student of Harry Partch and played in his legendary Gate 5 ensemble), the zoomoozophone looks somewhat like a marimba withwith aluminum tubes-except that it is about 20 feet long and consists of 129 tubes tuned to a 31-note scale in just-intonation.

All of the works on the CD are first recordings, including Drummond's arrangement of Partch's Two Studies on Ancient Greek Scales for Newband's instruments. The Cage, LaBarbara and Drummond works were composed for the group. Volume 2 with Newband is on mode 33.
