about

Works for mixed percussion and glockenspiel.

"Babel is the modern-classical outlet of Jakob Rehlinger, who can also be heard as the lonely guitar (that sounds like a peyote trip in the desert) called Moonwood, and also the owner of the great, Etobicoke based, experimental/freak-folk label Arachnidisks Recordings. One of the most prolific musicians in town, this is his third release this year on his own label, and his second as Babel. Glockengeister finds him in a quiet, minimal mood, experimenting with a recently acquisitioned glockenspiel that acts as a centerpiece for the album. Joined only occasionally by sparse percussion, that is similar to the backing bells of his Moonwood work, these pieces take all the time they need to mature, lasting anywhere from one and a half to thirteen minutes. There’s a real feeling of exploration on this disk, as if his new fond instrument were a huge cathedral he had just inherited, and he was wandering threw all the rooms, discovering their particular personalities. Some require more attention than others. Some are busy with bells. Some are barely there. Overall, it’s a very soft, spiritual atmosphere that should be your next soundtrack for falling asleep into lucid dreaming." ~ Hippie Cult / Offerings
