Also Paul Hindemith and Ernst Toch presented some pieces of what he
called "Grammophonmusik"in 1930 where several pieces had speed
manipulated voice sounds. Mark Katz has a chapter on this in his book
Capturing sound. Unfortunately these pieces are lost, except one, which
is for strings and xylophone.
