The transcript to the piece explains the piece completely and accurately. What you miss is the effect it creates.

"I am sitting in a room different from the one you are in now. I am recording the sound of my speaking voice and I am going to play it back into the room again and again until the resonant frequencies of the room reinforce themselves so that any semblance of my speech, with perhaps the exception of rhythm, is destroyed… read more

    Why does he 'regard this activity not so much as a demonstration of a physical fact, but more as a way to smooth out any irregularities [his] speech might have'? If this is just a special effect surely it should be contextualised. The way in which the piece is framed seems much more like a way to demonstrate the acoustic phenomenon.

    When I first played this I skipped through after hearing the paragraph a couple of times, advancing it about 5 mins at a time to see how it developed, and of course, by the end, it's imppossible to make out the words... what amazed me though is that when I listened to it again, this time not skipping through and just lied and listened with my eyes closed... this time I was able to get through the whole CD keeping track of the words... I was actually suprised when it ended because I was still following what he was saying! Try it at home! [2]

    So much more original at the time and so much less pretentious than most of the conceptual art bull**** we get nowadays... :)
