Louis Niebur's notes

DD080 Early kaleidophon Demo (tracks listed on label)
1. London Lemons twice
2. :19 Who Is theme 3 times “Fresh Aire” from Tomorrow People
3. Way out?
4. 2:23 Who Is theme twice
5. 2:54 Bank, twice
6. 3:07 Bank, twice
7. 3:20 electronic, twice
8. 3:36 descending electronic pattern, varied once
9. 4:02 London Lemons twice
10. 4:18 moogies bloogies, stops and starts. Begins again. Ends 7:25
11. 7:54 wobbulator sounding, rises and echoesDraft version of Delia Derbyshire track listings
    9:04 cuts quickly to electronic bass line, and concrete rhythmic pattern slightly blurry, coming into focus (same as other pot au feu rhythm), tape sped up gradually.
Clears to sine bloopy arpeggiations, then morphs (quite nicely) into moogies bloogies! No vocals, just electronics. Variations on moogies bloogies, and rhythm pattern (not part of the finished song) returns, sped up.
    12:43 – pot au feu both rhythm and bass, without top stings from that track. New melody
    14:18 pot au feu rhythm continues, sort of, but with ocean waves now, and subdued arpeggiations. Rhythms die out, just waves and arp.
12. 15:28 – White Noise. “Without sound”
13. 18:32 major scales, simple melodies and “mattachin”-like percussion underneath
14. 20:48 – Familiar Sounding Tune? White Noise?
15. 23:00 – rhythms. Machine sounding. (Elec Engineers Exhibition? Chalk Farm?
    24:25 “melody” enters, coordinated with the rhythms, sounding like random pitches above the increasing speed of the white noise rhythms. Whole thing repeats, and very interesting. Ends 29:18
