Alvin Lucier: "The origins of speech and music are mysterious. One cannot be sure which came first. One can imagine that the first human utterances were intoned, chanted, if not melodic. Song may have been the precursor of speech. Or they both may have developed simultaneously. It is lovely to imagine early humans singing to each other. Ashley’s speech-song seems to me to be a combination of both. It is fascinating to hear the characters in Bob’s operas singing and talking at the same time. The listener’s attention moves to three places: the meaning of the words, the melody they create and a combination of both."
