Rhythmiconic Sections
Album: 21 May 2002
By: DavidMooney

David Mooney's 24-part work Rhythmiconic Sections has been released by Arizona University Recordings (AUR). The work was inspired by Leon Theremin's rhythmicon, built in 1931 for Henry Cowell. Selections have been performed at festivals and concerts in the U.S., Belgium and Cuba (ICMC2001 listening room) and have been broadcast in North America and France. The work uses a mixture of synthesized sounds and samples, all of which were created and/or processed entirely within Kyma. The CD can be purchased online at EMF's CDemusic site (search for "mooney&") or directly from AUR. For historical background on the rhythmicon, technical info, and RealAudio samples visit Mooney's web site,
