Let's call it Prakrit - a raw, natural, elemental version of the language of the text.
Sanskrit has the sense of being cooked, artificial, sanctified, and polished. "Prakrit," by contrast, has the sense of being raw, natural, and unadorned.
So these are raw versions of the language of the Vijnana Bhairava Tantra, letting the natural sounds inside the Sanskrit resonate, as you do when meditating on the mantric qualities of the text.
Sanskrit (saṁskṛta) is defined as, "put together, constructed, well or completely formed, perfected. Made ready, prepared, completed, finished. Dressed, cooked (as food.) Purified, consecrated, sanctified, hallowed, initiated. Refined, adorned, ornamented, polished, highly elaborated."
Prakrit (prākṛta) means, "Original, natural, artless, normal, ordinary, usual. Low, vulgar, unrefined. Provincal, vernacular."
Sanskrit, by the way, is an English word. In 1899, in the preface to his Sanskrit-English Dictionary, Monier-Williams wrote, "Sanskrit is now too Anglicized a word to admit of its being written as it ought to be written according to the system of transliteration adopted in the present Dictionary – Saṃskṛit." p. xii, footnote 1
