FERMENTÆ - "GLOSSOLALIA"

Out soon through MERZTAPES
"FERMENTÆ features the solo project of audiovisual-surrealist KEVIN GAN YUEN, who is also one-third of San Francisco's celebrated blackened noise trio SUTEKH HEXEN.  

"Glossolalia," in some respects, illuminates the underside of nature-inspired dark ambient with passages manipulating foreboding, discordant overtones.  Culturally, the glossolalic denotes an act synonymous with the phenomenon of purportedly speaking in tongues, which, in turn, constructs a new mode of articulating thoughts by uttering words rooted in an unknown language.

Disclosing sonic, yet speech-like syllables exercised in a ritualistic context, FERMENTÆ "Glossolalia" inculcates an idea of language that reintroduces the threat and allure of the magical.
