The Technium

Glottal Opera


This clip of vocal cords singing a harmony will certainly make the rounds on the tubes. To film it required a fiber optic camera that goes up the nose and then down the throat. It is not too uncomfortable. It’s a lovely view of your own body you won’t ordinarily get. Amazing how we make such precise sounds with that meat. Enjoy!

    “‘They use words, ideas, concepts?’

    ‘Oh, yes. Except they do it with meat.’

    ‘I thought you just told me they used radio.’

    ‘They do, but what do you think is on the radio? Meat sounds. You know how when you slap or flap meat it makes a noise? They talk by flapping their meat at each other. They can even sing by squirting air through their meat.'”

    I also get a message saying the video is private. I didn’t get that message this morning.
