Josh describes some of the compositonal methods that he and Addiss used for the stitching speechless project.
From Blue Bluer Books: "At the heart of stitching speechless are 17 haiku by prominent Zen art scholar Stephen Addiss – who studied and collaborated with John Cage, the experimental composer and artist. Addiss used chance methods to create the haiku. He cut his own poems into individual lines and reassembled them into new poems, each one full of surprises. Some make perfect sense while others are more absurd."
