“Kesey by now had not only the bus but the very woods wired for sound. There were wires running up the hillside into the redwoods and microphones up there that could pick up random sounds.

Roland Kirk and his half a dozen horns funking away in the old sphenoid saxophone sinus cavities of the redwoods.”
