Dream's Ricochet is taken. I'd never heard anything like it before.
I'd been messing around with an old reel-to-reel tape recorder,
speeding things up, slowing them down, overdubbing them, etc., but I'd
never thought that this could be considered as music. Shortly
afterwards I heard one of Stockhausen's Klavierstuck in a school music
lesson, which was equally revelatory. These pieces opened up a whole
new world, and gave me "permission" to experiment.
