Louis Niebur's notes
DD149 – Methuseleh 3 copy 7.5 Opens beautifully, with speech and sounds effects, whooshing. “Go HOME!” ends 1:14 1:20 – vocoder rhythmic pattern. 3 or 4 tape loops simultaneously. End 2:02 2:06 – Lilith monologue: “they have accepted the burden of eternal life” with slight echo. Ends 7:54 7:57 – complex hum with overtones, gradually acquiring new pitches and beats. Channels drop out, and enter. Ends 15:15 15:20 – atmosphere, repeated loop. (tomorrow people?)
