To me, selected lengths of spoken words captured/recorded is the hot-warm-cool-cold cash of any literature you care to underline.
Man [sic] the planter, man the basket-weaver, and man the pot-maker came in after the Paleolithic man, and we’ve had thousands of years of the planter. When I mentioned this to John Cage, he said, “You know, that’s very interesting, I spend my life hunting mushrooms. I am not the least bit interested in cultivating them.” This is a curious illustration of the difference between the two kinds of man. The hunter is not concerned with classification or specialism or the processes of cultivation, only with discovery.
