What is your mailing address?  I will send you a tape Shannon made with both
music and speech through the 4-channel implant simulation.  Not only won't you
recognize familiar pieces of music, you won't even be able to tell the type of
music, whereas the speech is (darn close to) perfectly intelligible.
