DD150638 is a thematic plan for the pieces for the album Electrosonic.

It corresponds closely with the pieces present in the album.

The "Contd..." at the bottom of the page suggests that this was the first page of several, but there are no further pages of this kind in the photosnaps. Contrast enhancement of the top of the photo reveals two lines of words, including the words "in the basic [agenda?]" on a second page underneath this one.

There is a high-definition scan of this in the Medialink library.
