Visual elements have been added for this on-line presentation only.


1. David Berlin coined the term "Media Cycle" in 1988. A media cycle is a logical extension of the song cycle". That is: a collection of formal sections such as movements, or acts centered on an underlying theme or concept. Where a song cycle is typically one solo voice with accompaniment, the media cycle genre can involve any number of artistic media (including but not necessarily technological) in the realization of an aesthetic whole.
