This was the first of the NONDO series of recordings produced by Panton in the 1970s. It reflects some of the methods and styles he used: juxtapositions of free improvisation, composition, use of musicians and non-musicians, sometimes highly organised, sometimes reliant on chance encounters and serendipity. The ONE MUSIC concept was about using any resources/sources without discrimination, whether in terms of style, genre, methodology, instrumentation, personnel, musical/non-musical and so on, inclusively - the diametric opposite of the exclusiveness of the non-idiomatic approach of Derek Bailey, or the almost pointillist approach of John Stevens.
