In 1961, Harry Partch worked on a re-production of his comprehensive theatrical work Revelation in the Courthouse Park at the University of Illinois. At the suggestion of Charles Pond, the gymnastics coach at the university, Partch on this occasion also composed Rotate the Body In All Its Planes as music for a gymnastics event by watching all exercises of the gymnasts, timing them and adding to them existing music from his theatrical work.
