"Because birds are not human, their modulations provide schemas that are interesting in ways that are different from algebraic grids. The bird is a living being, part of a universe of muscles and nerves. Its algebra is organic, and so infinitely more complex than a series of dry numbers, and yet simpler, and in any case more effective, because it is mysteriously linked to human sensibility." - Pierre Schaeffer (À la Recherche d'une Musique Concrète)
