About zongrik

For those of you who do not know the handle "zongrik," that would be Bat-Ami Gordin. Most people call me "Tammy." Bat-Ami means "daughter of my nation" in Hebrew. It's a heavy name to carry around. I answer to either name. I also answer to "mama." Some Basic Things about me: Animal lover, mom, poet/writer, dramatic soprano, photographer, teacher/tutor, CERT/Technician and, oh yeah, aerospace engineer. I consider myself "The Astro-Poet." To learn more about the origins of the word "zongrik" see whats-a-zongrik?

  1. this is very cool…haven’t heard a better snapshot of synthesizer sound ever…ha..thanks for the bonus track ma’am

    • your comment makes me realize that a lot of people won’t get this if they don’t know synth or music mixing vocab, sound and tech….

      well, at least i hope they like the “sounds”

      tnx for the comment, and all your comments

  2. There must be a few google-whacks in there 🙂
    One way of getting the search engines in a twist.

  3. Ha – very clever! It is a highly lexicographic rap! Very funny word combos. K.

  4. I knew this prompt would tickle your polyglossolalic tendencies! I don’t know what it means but it sounds cool. 🙂

  5. Excellent! I really enjoyed the musical element you used with the new words. Music kind of lends itself to new words, don’t you think?

    • of course…i mean, there’s lyrics, and often we change pronunciation for a song. the French keep end sounds that are not said or read in a song, and the Brits often sing in American accents. classical American singers don’t sing in their native accents either. so pronunciations will differ greatly.

  6. As anticipated a lot of spectacular words making the rounds responding to this post. I don’t quite understand many and equally perplexing the way to say them. Whatever it is it’s all the richer knowing them. Beautiful write Tammy!


  7. Great phonic sounds love it thank you x

  8. LOL…I get those noises too… once had a few LP’s of Moog music (synthesized) thought it was pretty cool too. So is this write. Describes so many of what those sounds would sound like if heard. I really like Phlossh and fantastismal puchit…hehe
    Very clever indeed!

  9. And music will you find if words are sought to explain

  10. I love the sounds…so glad you read it, it made much more sense than when I played it in my head. Your dynamics were absolutely “choschly aligned” ; )
    Thank you.

  11. What a fantastic read and to hear it was beyond a treat! You came up with a great subject for the diction employed and imagined. Fun, witty, and delightful!

    • tnx. ur the first one to hear it. in fact, this is the first recording i put up, so ur the FIRST to hear one of my poetry readings. i’m sooooo excited that you found it “beyond a treat”

      i hope you noticed that the second to last word had the gutteral ch in it, like semetic languages and russian and greek…. 🙂

  12. I just tried to listen 3 times but, it’s just silent 😦 got the sound right up too and even tried with headphones in case my comp wasn’t picking it up.

  13. I like this a lot. I could be way off, but I read this as bit of technical commentary on so much music we here that is built rather than composed using tools that are technical rather than inspired. The words flow together in staccato moments building the whole seemingly echoing off each other.

    • interesting. i was not making a commentary, i was describing the process and making sounds that went with the process. the other thing about synths is that people create “instruments” and patent them, and they have weird names that sounds the like “instrument”

  14. This is amazing, Tammy. Loved the way you captured sounds.

  15. how did i know that you would kill this…omg…you rock the lexicon…A side, not B

  16. I’m glad for you included the reading as I wasn’t sure how the words are read, and am not familiar with music tech terms. I was then able to somewhat imagine the sounds. Very interesting. 🙂

  17. Awesome… great reading too, very textured.

    Thank you for visting my page.
    It took a bit but I think the verification is disabled now.

  18. Cressida de Nova

    yep,fantastismal puchit indeed (giggles!)

  19. This is fun to hear even if I don’t understand the funny words.

    (Hey, my daughter in Sydney teaches aerospace engineering at UNSW. You engineers can be so artistically creative. )

  20. this is a phenomenal blast of words and fun to read aloud. so musical though technical. very nice!

  21. I love your knowledge of The Big Board. Must be such a rush of power, sitting behind all those doodlywackers and hobknoblins!! Very expressive, takes me back to my studio days… Thanks! Amy

  22. Super cool and creative. 🙂
