Straying onto the still-rather-underused "...and any other matters that take our fancy" part of our blog's title...

The closing feature on The World This Weekend was very interesting: Mark Mardell visiting the Wellcome Collection's THIS IS A VOICE exhibition.

If you've got a spare four or so minutes, I'd recommend you listen to it - if only to hear the sound of the human voice massively speeded up.

And what does the sound of 19 people's voices sound like when massively speeded up (if you can't be bothered to listen)? Uncannily like bird song.

Bird song itself fascinates me, and this video is one of the absolute treasures of YouTube. [It almost tempts me to become the 'new Messiaen']:
