The first full-length album published by Chopin featuring three long audio-poem works composed between 1958-1969. A pioneering work that offers sound poems to be played at up to 6 speeds. This album represents a culmination of Chopin's activities in sound research, voice recording techniques and sound spatalisation that had previously been seen in his magazines Cinquième Saison and OU. With sleeve design by Robert Morgan and liner notes from William Burroughs. The sleeve reads: 'Every voice in itself is an orchestra of infinite variety. The word is no longer the beginning.'
