Weeeell. :-) I guess you mean Kraakdoos -- I don't think it's my type of music, although I listen to electronic and even to quite noisy stuff like Pansonic (I saw them live at ZKM in Karlsruhe where they played on instruments made my Erkki Kurenniemi, which sounded similar, but still more like music. :-))

I don't spend that much time on that. That might be the reason why it took me three full conlangs and seven sketches to get one with a 'nice' sound (subjectively, of course). Again, that's Qthen|gai. So I'm not really good at producing a well-sounding language. Now I have the problem that I cannot pronounce it very well, because the phonemes are so strange... **Henrik
