Hi, I'm going to do a project of language design, that is the creation of an artificial language like it happens, for example, for the aliens of some sc-fi movies. (Famous examples are the aliens in District 9 and Chewbecca in Star Wars (of course ;)). It is also called "conlang" (constructed language). This is a project for the Sound Design course of of my Art School and the final work should be some kind of a "speaking installation", where the speech is an artificial language.
My plans are to collect a database of sounds/phonems from human speeches of different languages, in addiction to synthetic sounds,and find a way to re-arrange them on the fly when triggered by an interaction with the audience, in order to create "sentences".
The techniques used to create aliens/creatures languages for movies and videogames have been widely discussed, also here on SSD. What I'd like to know instead, if there are examples of artificial language design in Sound Art or Arts in general.
No videogames or films involved this time ;)
Any help or suggestion is much appreciated!! Thanks! Max
