I heard this performed live at Expo in 1964 and thought it was fabulous. I've heard the machine version and the orchestra version, and the machine version is precise and vibrant. The orchestra version takes the edge off the percussive nature of the piece. It would make a very popular Youtube today if it could be done again with machines.
