Slowly builds, at 1:00 another lower wavering drone enters (windlike)
Electronic thunder sound plays slowly several times
“bird” sounds at around 2:00
build at 2:50 until trumpet nters at 3:08, and plays fanfare, last 5 notes looped slowly over
and overDraft version of Delia Derbyshire track listings
all fade except high sine at 3:50

2. 4:31 starts again. Exactly the same but with slightly truncated ending. Ends 8:31
