one hour glossolalia for Resonance FM
composition Joachim Montessuis – April 2010

A guide to artists on the fringes of art and experimental music that work primarily with the voice and text. Produced by Oliver Fay.

From extreme strange poetry to shamanism, this one hour vortex piece focus on and brings together a bunch of abstract vocalists, non-semantics poets, musicians, psychics and screamers of the 20th and 21st, digging the space of vibratory experience above languages, where sound, poetry and music are merged : reactivation of the breath in the process of recreating reality and the inner mutant. Meeting point and wild entanglement of channeling processes, psycho-voodoo, possessions, trances, extasis, hypnosis, speaking in tongues, glossolalia, language of the birds, madness, delirium tremens, screams, chants, Artaud’s Charabié, etc… pure vocal energies in an opened furor : Clash of the titans, for real.
Pneuma is Greek for “breath”, which metaphorically describes a non-material being or influence. Pneumatology is the study of spiritual beings and phenomena, especially the interactions between humans and God(s).
