- Something I notice in your sound while still subtle and unconventional is ethnic references.
The Allegorist: I’m very glad that you have noticed that, as it is a big part of the ideology The Allegorist is standing for. To represent humanity as one, even though we are all different but also very similar at the same time.
This is partly the reason why I’ve started to sing in a fictional language. To avoid choosing a specific language and with it one cultural reference.
The other reason is, that whenever I start to make vocal sounds I can never find the exact words to speak. The muttering of faraway and cryptic words come naturally to me. I’m baffled to realise, that whenever I try to alter them, because I think they sound silly, how I cannot. Because if I would do so, I would no longer express those initial thoughts and emotions but rather pass on a completely different meaning.
I’ve been thinking how I could call this language and decided to go with „Mondoneoh“.
The name is broken up into three parts. The first is 'MONDO', which is a collection of dialogues between a pupil and a Zen Buddhist teacher, designed to obtain an intuitive truth. The purpose of 'NEO' is to update values for the 21st Century, which transcends the hierarchical, gender-biased, outdated aspects of traditions to one community of equality, diversity and inclusion. The letter 'H' at the end symbolizes the bridge between past and future, us and them, and the balance of darkness and light, yin and yang, the micro and macro, nothing and everything.
What you meant with the previous questions was the vocals, right?
- Yes, but not exclusively. I've tried to understand if I can decipher a particular geographical point of reference but it seems that is not really the case...
The Allegorist: I am glad you see it that way.
