Liner Notes
"THE WORK THAT I HAVE BEEN DOING THESE MANY YEARS PARALLELS MUCH IN THE ATTITUDES AND ACTIONS OF PRIMITIVE MAN. HE FOUND SOUND-MAGIC IN THE COMMON MATERIALS AROUND HIM. HE THEN PROCEEDED TO MAKE THE VEHICLE, THE INSTRUMENT, AS VISUALLY BEAUTIFUL AS HE COULD. FINALLY, HE INVOLVED THE SOUND-MAGIC AND THE VISUAL BEAUTY IN HIS EVERYDAY WORDS AND EXPERIENCES, HIS RITUAL AND DRAMA, IN ORDER TO LEND GREATER MEANING TO HIS LIFE. THIS IS MY TRINITY: SOUND-MAGIC, VISUAL BEAUTY, EXPERIENCE-RITUAL." -HARRY PARTCH
