Originally a tape piece - 4 tracks of pre-recorded voices performing selected lines of poetry as well as vocal gestures and vowel-consonant sounds, which were then processed in a classical electronic music lab, the result being a kind of multi-media vocal piece, with constant transformation of the original material.

Realized at the Didactic Studio for Electronic Music, Bilthoven, Holland, 1966.
