Gong and bell sounds with background roar and occasional traffic by Fluxus alumnus Corner, performed mostly at a concert in New York at The Kitchen in 1974 (there is information in the autographic booklet, and it's good information, but it doesn't say much about the actual recordings, which are clearly live and fairly lo-fi - not a bad thing - especially the unidentified first piece, where Corner is joined by Bill Fontana). For the other two pieces there are 4 performers with a variety of gongs and a bell tree. There are also low piano notes in the first one. Both are pretty cleanly recorded and good on the ear. Especially the first: deep resonating gongs, low strings, the sound just hanging around...hard to go wrong.
