A experiment in musical cinema the film intertwines the innovative jazz of Roland Kirk played at Ronnie Scott's club with the contemplations of his Avant-garde contemporary, pianist and composer John Cage at London's Seville Theatre.

Kirk demonstrates his ability to simultaneously play three saxophones, passing out whistles amongst his audience he insists that they accompany him "in the key of w."

In two shining examples of Avant-gardism John Cage shares his concepts while preparing his production "musical bicycle" with two collaborators, introducing Kirk's music in an echo chamber.
