Playing with Sound -- Adding Downbeat Tempo to a Discourse on Shakespeare
A strange thing happens when you take an audio file of someone speaking and set it to music -- the two separate tracks combine such that the result is greater than the sum of the parts. For example, listen to the 3 minute track below that combines a 1981 speech by Shakespearean English scholar Arthur Henry King with Kiln's Fyrepond.
I have not altered either track in any way. I simply layered them together. Listening to both the speech and music brought together this way gives more depth to both.
