Listening Warm-up

[the instructor guides the listener to modulate the sound waves coming into his/her ear. Instruction can also be taken as a model of a particular type of listening - the ear becomes a musical instrument, always ready for use]





Mute Speaker

[voice without voice, speech without speech. Only a small residue of speech and its communicational function remains. The listener can only guess what the speaker is trying to say]





Relaxation Piece on the Theme of Czech National Anthem

[listener's brain is synchronized with the frequency of 4-7Hz - brain wave frequency, which is associated with the state of hypnosis]





Warm-up with Radio

[the listener is instructed to explore his/her receiver and use it as a musical instrument, or generally to an unorthodox approach to things]
