Well, I may be wrong, but as far as I remember the recordings of Iva Bitová's performances that I've heard, it is not Czech she is singing; rather, she produces sounds without meaning. A kind of Kurt Schwitters-like conlang, so to speak. Jan ===== "Originality is the art of concealing your source." - Franklin P.
