The novelist Jonathan Coe has written a play set to music in a bid to find a way of combining words and melody.
Jonathan Coe and two of his performers, actor Henry Goodman and Marcus Holdaway from the band The High Llamas, discuss the challenging process of shaping music around words.
Listen to an extended version of the performance.
You can see a live performance at the Notes and Letters festival at King's Place in London, at 7:30pm on Friday 7 October.
