The 'Atom Heart Mother' suite that occupies Side 1 of the original vinyl is a true collaboration between Pink Floyd and Ron Geesin. This work was composed by the process of Pink Floyd providing Ron Geesin with a full-length tape of all chords, rhythm and effects, upon which he wrote all original brass, choir and cello structure and melodies. He worked on his own, after a few hours consultation with Divid Gilmour on the character of the main theme and with Rick Wright on the start of the main choir section.
