Naming Names
Live performance: 06 Sep 2004 --
Presented by: DavidMooney
Public: N/A

Lunel, Barcelona and Zaragoza -- France and Spain
http://ocaos.cccb.org/zeppelin2004/index.html

David Mooney's piece WMD: Naming Names was performed at the Zeppelin 2004 convocation On Agreement and Conflict, Barcelona, May 19-22. The event will be repeated in Zaragoza in September 2004. WMD: Naming Names answers the question, "Where are the weapons of mass destruction?" by listing the names of all acknowledged nuclear explosions detonated since 1945.


Discussion (Eyewitness reports, descriptions, discussion):


Mooney's piece Pin Drop was part of the 3rd Rencontres Musiques Nouvelles in Lunel, France on June 6, Electrolune day (http://www.decadanse.org/rencontres04/prog6juin.htm). Pieces were played at several locations in Lunel over portable CD players. Pin Drop was composed in response to a conference in which a majority of the pieces were of the wall-of-noise school. Most of the sounds in the piece derive from a recording of a pin dropped onto a metal cookie sheet, all done in Kyma.
