Dear Petr

You would be welcome to play a couple of short pieces available from my
website, which are reductions of George W Bush speeches made by
removing all sound above a very low threshold. All that remains is the

I documented these and other pieces made with similar processes, in an
article in the journal "Digital Creativity" Vol 14 No 2, 2003.

Take a look at

the pieces are:
"Two Minutes Fifty Seconds Silence"
"a little bird told me"
