Harry Partch and the Sorcerers's Tone

I've long been aware of the distinct similarities of my studies of Harry Partch and my love of the Harry Potter novels. Many times I've stumbled and used one name for the other, most humorously in my graduate class one day. Well, I've learned I'm not alone - enter Uncyclopedia, the content-free wiki that deflates the pretensions of Wikipedia to authoritative knowledge with blistering acuity. Their entry on Harry Partch is a masterpiece of a mash-up between these two cultural icons. My only problem with it? No one has edited it with a name and synopsis of the final book. Harry Partch and the Deathly Harmonic Canons? Harry Partch and the Death of Hallowed Music? Add your own ideas in the comments, and I'll post the best along with a synopsis to the Uncyclopedia.
