The best-known version of ‘Barnyard in Orbit’ appeared on Perrey & Kingsley’s Vanguard Records debut The In Sound From Way Out, but it lacked the freewheeling feeling of the earlier incarnation presented here. Recorded by Perrey with Sam Fiedel for the library album Musique Electronique du Cosmos, it features a number of animal sounds that Perrey could coax from the Ondioline’s wide timbral palette (a donkey’s bray, a cat’s meow and the grunt of a pig amongst them).

Transcribed and restored from Perrey rarities collector Takashi Okada’s vinyl copy of Musique Electronique du Cosmos, it sounds, as the back cover of the LP suggests, like Perrey “having fun on a space farm”.
