"I do not know exatly when I made this sound poem,
but I performed it many times in the late 1970's.
"Darugar" was the war cry of "Timur-i-leng",
known to us as Tamerlane, while Timurtas was
his mortal enemy. The text is given to the audience,
who the wail it aloud as loudly as possible more
or less in unison." (D.H.)
