School, New York, 31 March 1931) contain an otherwise unidentified

 D 26 Nov 1931. In 1931, HC suggested objectives, and apparendy also
some specifications, to Leon Theremin for an electrically powered and
controlled instrument that would be able to emit sounds in as many
as 16 rhythmic patterns simultaneously. He conceived of the device
at first as merely a highly sophisticated metronome with which com-
posers could increase their skill in dealing with multiple meters. Only
later did he consider its possibilities as a musical instrument. Theremin
constructed the instrument, and for it Cowell wrote this work, which
he at first called Rhythmicana. On 26 Nov 1931 HC wrote Olive
Cowell from Berlin that he had finished his rhythmicon piece.
