John Rimmer

Profile:
John Francis Rimmer (5 February 1939, Auckland, New-Zealand) is a composer and formerly a musicologist. An interest in electro-acoustic music in the mid-1960s led him to study in Toronto under Weinzweig and Gustav Ciamaga. In 1974 he founded the electro-acoustic music studio of the University of Auckland.
His compositions include instrumental, vocal, theatrical and electro-acoustic works, with some emphasis on pieces mixing instrumental or vocal scores with electro-acoustic sounds, as in the Composition series of ten such works. Most recently his electro-acoustic music has been invigorated through his work with granular synthesis techniques. He was awarded a personal chair in music at the University of Auckland in 1995.
