“Music speaks louder than words”; however when music is incorporated with spoken word, do the words become obsolete? Is the music enhanced to a point where humans are unable to comprehend it? Does it draw the attention away from the sounds? Or does it highlight how humans are a multi-functioning, intelligent species and are able to comprehend multiple things at once?

These are some of the tracks in which we test our capability to comprehend spoken word amidst varied sounds.
