You might be interested in the (neo-)prog pieces composed and performed by a friend of mine, John Quijada, who created his own language, Ithkuil, the subject of a New Yorker article a few years ago. His good friend, David Peterson, the developer of languages used in Game of Thrones et al., sings on the tracks.

@Dean, I read it.Weird how the Russian nationalist right got entangled into it.
  Tue. 10/1/19 6:31pm Dean:

Weird, indeed, and that was Foer's impetus, I think, for writing the piece. But having spent many years, from fourth grade and on, with John and his twin brother, my interest in the article remains the linguistic angle. We were always toying with languages in one way or another.
