AllMusic Review by

A hilarious piece for speaker and audience response in which the degenerative re-recording of a voice leads one through human ageing and the gradual complete breakdown of spoken language. The phase chosen to be treated to 327 degenerations is aptly "I am a degenerate." See his radio piece "Pressure of the Unspeakable" in the collection Radius #2.
