Pork with Ham David R. Mooney

Read by Jack Bailey, Donna Fisher, Marsha Frank, Maxine Heller, Tim Kendall, and the composer. The text consists of 24 particularly obnoxious phrases culled from junk messages. The title comes from the first two ingredients of a popular processed meat product the name of which has been adopted to describe this kind of unwanted email. This is section 16 of Rhythmiconic Sections.

Composed primarily with the Kyma system, assisted with some home grown C++ utility programs that assist with decision making (pseudo-random number generators) and repetitive calculations. The piece was mixed in Digidesign Session8 software. Hardware was limited to the PC computer and the Capybara, Kyma’s DSP box.
