Louis Niebur's notes

DD258 – lyre
Recorded at 15” (although it sounds too high, Delia’s voice can be heard occasionally in the background at this speed)
Plucking of lyre, with splices separating different sections (sometimes in unusual ways, cutting off lines, etc).
Followed by the sound of dying elephants.
