talking lemon

idea:

           -	huhmhh –

find recordings
                  of
                               advertisement voices?

(just listen to advertisements)

	use them
	           to make

music poems that are based on the
	uhh
		pitches 
		        and rhythm
				that the people 
				
                                                                                uhh
					have.

it’d be really hard;
	you could use those slow-down sound programs

and listen 
           to
		how . people ! change ! their voice! 

		and     dih dih deh dih - 
                                                                     dehdihdeh!
