    The deadly sound-wraith from Kate Bush's 'Experiment IV' video"We were working secretly For the military. We only know in theory what we are doing: music made for pleasure, music made to thrill. It was music we were making here until they told us all they wanted was a sound that could kill someone from a distance. So we go ahead, and the meters are over in the red. It's a mistake in the making."
