6/24 Today in Weird Music History: 1901 and 1935. Happy Birthday today to two 20th Century music pioneers on the opposite ends of the notated spectrum.  Harry Partch, inventor of the 43-note scale, was born in 1901. Terry Riley, regarded as the father of musical minimalism, was also born on this date in 1935.
