“The coronal suture of the skull (this would first have to be investigated) has – let us assume – a certain similarity to the closely woven line which the needle of the phonograph engraves on the receiving, rotating cylinder of the apparatus. What if one changed the needle and directed it on its return journey along a tracing which was not derived from the graphic translation of sound but existed of itself naturall-well, to put it plainly, along to coronal structure [of the skull], for example? What would happen? A sound would necessarily result, a series of sounds, music… Feelings – which? Incredulity, timidity, fear, awe…”
