Re: playing during speeches / great movie

Howdy all!

Figured I'd chime in after lurking for a couple of months.  This 
reminded me of the pieces Kronos Quartet has recorded based on a speech 
called "How it Happens" read by I.F. Stone.  These are multiple pieces 
(written by Scott Johnson) based on different sections of this speech.  
interesting because the arrangement creates a dialogue between spoken word 
and instrument sounds (as opposed to the voice taking the "lead").  My 
favorite of the set is the section entitled "Physical Property" which can 
found on the Kronos album Short Stories.  Check it out.
