Cobbing’s presence and contribution was one of generosity being put to the use of creating of space for others to be creative in.
Cobbing’s core ongoing activity was as correspondent, ‘between’ movements made around the machine in the transformation of texts through the printing stage and those movements of the body produced in the throes of vocal delivery.
Cobbing was well-acquainted with independent film at the time, being secretary of the London Film-makers Co-operative in 1967 when the emergent organisation was based at Better Books, “a centre for poetry readings, ‘happenings’ and small-scale performances, including the influential Destruction in Art Symposium,” of which he was manager.

 Introduction tp Bob Cobbing
Jeff Nuttall once spoke to me of Bob Cobbing as being "a man of total commitment"; and I would extend that, in this context, to say that both Bob Cobbing and Eric Mottram are / were, in their separate ways, men of total commitment to poetry.
Cobbing published Mottram's first book of poetry, Inside the whale, and remained one of his publishers throughout the rest of Mottram's life.
As with Eric Mottram, Bob Cobbing, though he distinguishes between his private and his public, does not keep them entirely separate, but allows them to inform each other; and the poetic pervades and to a considerable extent gives shape to both.

 Jacket # 9 - Robert Sheppard on Bob Cobbing
Bob facilitates, offers yet another structure for experiment, but allows the participant to learn from his or her own experience, to develop personal (or non-standard) criteria, essential in the alternative poetries.
Whereas Cobbing's variations are quite precisely versions (like many of his own sequences of the 90s) on the text of Upton's selected, Upton's 'variations' involve the addition of new material, possibly in response to the theme, but possibly to counterpoint Cobbing's procedures.
Bob Cobbing's work and his many activities (I haven't even mentioned The Association of Little Presses) are extraordinary in their own rights.

Cobbing had done several sound poetry pieces using the tape recorder in sixties and seventies, and thought considerably about the ramifications of his experiments as he wrote in 1971:
In his later years, Cobbing discarded the use of tape in his live performances and became a strong practitioner in acoustical techniques which he felt had a far more resonant and richer articulatory control over the sonic aspects of expression than anything that one could gain by performing with tape or electro-acoustic devices.
