Magaibutsu-go (磨崖仏語)

From Kook Science

Magaibutsu-go (Japanese: 磨崖仏語, "Magaibutsu language") is an informal designation for a pseudo-language consisting of non-lexical vocables — words that do not seem to translate meaningfully into any language — that has been utilised by Japanese musician Tatsuya Yoshida (吉田達也) in the lyrical composition of music performed by his prog-rock zeuhl band Ruins (ルインズ). Magaibutsu refers to relief sculptures of Buddha engraved into solid rock faces.

The lyrical method is inspired, in part, by the French musician Christian Vander and his band Magma, who have performed in the constructed language Kobaïen since 1969.
