Disc 5 of the 6 10" lp's from the Source Magazine. This time, an electronic piece (video ii (b) / (c) / (l)) by Lowell Cross (who invented the laser light show and made pink floyd mad money) and "Sonic Poetry" by Arrigo Lora Totino called "English Phonemes". The first composition is a fantastic piece of electronic drone music. The latter is a composition of strange word association reminiscent of the screw themed "Maledetto" by Kenneth Gaburo, written around the same time (1971) although Totino takes the process in a different direction by manipulating the speech with the aid of electronics.
