You can't conciously create something of this kind; stuff of this quality can only happen spontaneously...AFVN broadcasts Simon & Garfunkel's "Sound of Silence" as the news accidently cuts in on the transmission, making an elegant allegorical accompaniment that runs stunningly parallel to the lyrics.*
