About

This "reverse theme and variations" was realized in Studio B of the Experimental Music Studiols at University of Illinois, Urbana, USA. Distorted beyond recognition, and then increased in speed to the point of white noise, the "theme" or sound source is revealed in the final moments. And, as should be the case, John Barrymore has the last word.
