To get an idea of the complexity, I opened the MIDI file in Finale. A
graphic of the top staves of m 4-5 is at the bottom of this message.

Others will know more about this, but Logic has (had?) a
sound-to-MIDI function that I have put some spectral pieces into with
some interesting (and on occasion "a-s(t)ounding" !) results).

For those whose mother-tongue is not english, it is probably
difficult to impossible to 'pick up' the phonetic emulation here. I
am reminded of how difficult it is for many people to hear the words
to Bicycle Built for Two, if they do not know the words to the song.

I am also reminded of the "sine tone words" which are on the CD that
accompanies "Auditory Scene Analysis"
