MIZI – Glossolalia (Γλωσσολαλιά)

“Glossolalia” is a live-piece following the radio-art ethos. Composed soundscapes of field
recordings and a 0-input mixer are crushed through the magnetic tape medium, enveloping the disused cassettes found in various thrift stores. Voices stripped from their bodies, debatable functionality of sounds and a lingering question; Should I get my pencil?

Το «Γλωσσολαλιά» είναι ένα ηχητικό έργο ηχογραφημένο σε πραγματικό χρόνο το οποίο
ακολουθεί το ραδιο-τέχνης ήθος. Τα τεχνητά ηχητικά τοπία των εγγραφών πεδίου και ενός μίκτη μηδενικής εισόδου συνθλίβονται μέσω της μαγνητικής ταινίας και περιβάλλουν κασέτες-ευρήματα, που βρίσκονται θαμμένες σε παλιατζίδικα. Φωνές απογυμνωμένες από το σώμα τους, αμφισβητήσιμη λειτουργικότητα των ήχων και μια επίμονη ερώτηση: Should I get my pencil?
