[ Frank Rothkamm Nine Chains to the Moon ]

XXIII

Nine Chains to the Moon is Buckminster Fuller’s first book, originally published in 1938 in New York. I remapped this as an audiophile motion picture comprising 9 works that I produced in New York from 1996-1997. All of the 9 were commissions, they were all created as a soundtrack, remix, art installation, ritual or for a festival. Besides digital audio composition, keyboards, analog synthesizer, and drum programming, I also noodle here on the electric guitar. I am deeply indebted to Raymond Chen, DJ GLOVE, Alfred Harth, Joseph Haydn, Hans Werner Henze, Max Lässer, Henry Mancini, Ellliott Sharp, Joseph Trump, and the Hermann Lodge #268 without whom none of these Nine Chains to the Moon would exist.
