comment: annotation by herman de vries: "at the summer party on the occasion of my soon-to-be 80th birthday, many friends came. as it said on the invitation: 'the eschenau chaos band will play.' while the party was going on, people asked me when that band would be playing, and i replied: 'now! you are that band', and i randomly handed out all of these instruments. hartmut geerken was clued in and had brought some as well – sun ra's sun harp among others. i started with a moroccan hand drum, bendir, and off it went. unpractised."
