Between the Ear and the Mouth
ROGUE SYNTAX: PRIMER is a longform experimental audio project that explores the dynamics of language within the space of contemporary art. Created by Nathan Gray, Makiko Yamamoto & Danni Zuvela, with linguist Rikke Bundegaard-Nielson, supported by Liquid Architecture (Melbourne), 1646 (The Hague) and Australia Council for the Arts.
Episode 1: Between the Ear and the Mouth offers listeners a high-end undercoat of linguistic basics, upon which successive Rogue Syntax layers will be built. Facts are leavened by multilingual examples, speech experiments, vocal antics, and parsing of one very dumb sentence.
