DD140336

DD140336 is a sheet of Delia's handwritten notes for the Greenwich Macbeth (1971) giving the construction techniques for some of the sounds, and showing that she re-used her sound for Aztecs, the thunder from King Lear (early 1968) and "Yoko Ono", which presumably refers to her sounds for the 1967 Wrapping Event.
