Frikativ Frenzi

Zaum is somewhat like this piece by @filosof103. If you are not a speaker of German, you really need to translate it to both appreciate the experiment and get the joke.

The mind is an engine driven by concepts and affects, hence ideasthesia is a framework within which to explore how apparent nonsense produces more than mere confusion. The bulbous blobbiness of a big bountiful bowl of bones elicits a feeling of fullness - until the final crashing cross-stitch. It isn't just the affluence of alliterations.

Going down another level, mantras are supposed to be recited at a speed at which the words lose their identity and the chant becomes a form of sonotherapy. Most Buddhist mantras are in Sanskrit or Pali but there are some that are not of any known terrestrial language. They are matters of frequency and focus, of incantations and intentions.

Strangely, this song came to mind, not because of the song itself but for the quote in one of the comments.

Thom Yorke: “Street Spirit is our purest song, but I didn’t write it. It wrote itself."
