Via OFFERINGS / Hippie Cult

… Glockengeister finds BABEL 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 found 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.

Glockengeister is set to be released on August 14th, 2012 on CD and digital through Arachnidiscs Recordings.
