      Delusions of the Fury is a 72' totally-intergrated, corporeal, microtonal,
      elemental work of ritual theater, incorporating almost all of partch's
      hand-built orchestra od sculptural instruments. It stands as the Choral
      Symphony or Ring Cycle do to other composers: a cultminating testament to a
      lifetime of "doing your own thing". Perhaps the most astonishing, seductive
      and compelling of Partch's works. Like composer Colon Nancarrow, Partch had
      to wait until late in life for his radical contributions to the arts to
      receive wide attention. With the 1969 production of delusion he was
      "discovered", idolized, and gurufied, as a 43-tone-to-the-octave, ex-hobo,
      eccentric, maverick, iconoclastic instrument-builder, and a "philosophic
      music-man seduced into carpentary". Hippy hyperbale notwithstanding, Partch
      was a genuine far-out radical whose tome has come. Again, "sounds like this
      have rarely been heard before, at least not on this planet." The 16-page
      illustrated booklet features Partch's introduction and a new text by
      conductor Danlee Mitchell.
