about

STURM und DRANG is part 2 in BABEL's trilogy of improvised, extended technique pieces for prepared electric guitars. As with HEURTER (part 1), guitar and bass are primarily treated as percussion instruments. These pieces also feature delay loops, junk percussion, wind instruments and electronically manipulated vocal performances.

"... three thematic counterparts going on a psychedelically stomping bare foot, where the emphasis is certainly on the minimalism and rhythm rhythm rhythm associated with the classic krautrock sound (“Sturm.01-03”), before going shot-for-shot into more serene dreams and foreign landscapes intent on flowing out into the ambient (“Drang.01-03”) ... the “Drang” pieces pursue a purer ambience, a oneness with the void perhaps. And then there are the “Black Lodge” and “White Pine” tracks, dipping into Angelo Badalamenti and Twin Peaks waters with inspiration and restraint. A project in metamorphosis ... 'Sturm und Drang' shows that Babel is towering with talent." ~ Weird Canada

"The pieces here are improvisational, but the sound seems more structured than the tracks on Heurter. Babel also includes flutes and electronically manipulated vocal drones, which creates a much richer sonic tapestry. Finally, where as Heurter was firmly rooted in an ambient sound, STURM und DRANG song’s vary from drone to stuff that has an unusual pop and smooth jazz undertones. With each album I hear, I’m enjoying Babel more and more." ~ Biloxi
