For this edition of New Sounds, it's an hour of rareties From the Vaults with the Harry Partch instruments. When this show first aired back in 1990, conductor Danlee Mitchell was their keeper, and the leader of the musical ensemble entrusted with performing on such beasts as the Cloud Chamber Bowls. Host John Schaefer chats with Mitchell, and we'll hear some music-theatre works by Harry Partch.
