Hi,

I am writing a paper on the use of spoken word as rhythmic device for
composition. This involves any sound emitted by the voice (male or
female) that is morphed into a rhythmic pattern.

Who are the first composers to take speech fragments and create
rhythmic patterns or loops?

Some of the early pioneers I have found so far are Steve Reich and Leos
Janacek.
