About the album

Babel is a large-scale musical structure with each piece of music (or CD track) being thought of as a 'room' or place within an enormous skyscraper tower city. This aural building being the embodiment of a modern-day Tower Of Babel...

In the main section are 3 CDs where each track corresponds to a virtual architecture. As a Babel supplement are the 2 CDs of KBBL - the Tower's fictitious radio station. Each of its 4 'shows' has its own style and atmosphere. Collaborating with DJs, actors, writers and singers, KBBL is made to sound like a real radio station with ads, traffic reports, phone-ins etc.

Babel bristles with contradictions, drawing together many languages and idioms both seriously and ironically. It utilises an array of music technologies available to composers as the 20th century came to a close. It is vast and full of connections which become clear after repeated listenings.
