''Shatoe'' has as its primary concept the release of primal language from the basic drives of the human condition, and language's corresponding role in the expression of those drives therein . The words are ''primal'' in the sense that their usage is not semantically driven through learned reflection, but whose uses are ''chosen'' spontaneously through glossolalia to purely reflect a given psychological condition. The piece was not written out, and was performed with my eyes closed as i deeply assessed my mental situation at the given moment (which happened to be one of intense free-floating desire for I know not what). Ultimately, ''Shatoe'' is an expression of that desire in its purest spoken-word form possible.
