glossolalia (stress positions)

2008 listen

glossolalia (stress positions) is a simulation of melody, a lyrical hoax in which one counterfeit adventure follows another. Here, things hang together more by superstition than by purpose. This work is in fact suffers from expressive aprosodia—an impaired ability to produce or convey emotional or affective cues. Flat and excessive, and as though coming from some remote corner of the baroque, where tortuous ornaments overflow their armatures, glossolalia (stress positions) peregrinates the pleats and wrinkles that flicker at the edge of melodic coherence.
