After returning to Paris, Barbaud asked Frank Brown and Geneviève Klein to provide the sound sampling program in data that did not provoke violent attacks. A poor telephone transmission during a first experiment, was the cause of a crash that did not lack beauty. The following communications were normal, and everything from those transmissions were kept in the piece.
