Album Remarks & Appraisals:

Babel is a large-scale musical structure, with each piece of music (or CD track) thought of as a "room" or place within an enormous city, this aural building being the embodiment of a modern-day Tower of Babel. In the main section are three CDs, where each track corresponds to a virtual architecture. As a supplement, we have two CDs of KBBL, the Tower's fictitious radio station. Each of its four "shows" has its own style and atmosphere. Collaborating with DJs, actors, writers, and singers, KBBL is made to sound like a real radio station complete with ads, traffic reports, phone-ins, and more.

Other Music
This astonishing set marks the culmination of his most ambitious work to date, recorded over a ten-year span of time...works of true genius that combine the finest elements of Pierre Henry and Nurse With Wound.
