21 Ono Glossolalia
Glossolalia is a project from Brian Howe. Glossolalia or speaking in tongues is the vocalizing of fluent speech-like but unintelligible utterances, often as part of religious practice. Its use (including use in this article) sometimes also embraces Xenoglossy - speaking in a natural language that was previously unknown to the speaker.
i did say on my mailout about this release that it was a collective that was responsible for the music but its just Brian. Many people are involved with the poetry side of things and some of the stuff is sampled poetry but all the music is just brian. its a beautiful cd and its quite hypnotic and a little bit raunchy in places.
i hope that i did it justice writing about it, you should really just check out his blog its got everything on there plus beautiful videos and lots more poems.
oh and its a lot better than Blaine L. Reininger's (ex Tuxedomoon) Album also Called Glossolalia. Thats pretty good tho i'm a big fan of Tuxedomoon especially their recent output.
