Cover art and liner notes included

"... we hear melodies from the drums, percussive beats from the piano, a Ukrainian folk tune, the eery scrape of wetted fingers across drum skin, the ominous tinkle of toy pianos, moments of crashing, claustrophobic chords and others of airy delicacy. It’s a strangely compelling and compellingly strange hour. Highly recommended."

Biblical texts provided the inspirational sources and creative catalysts for the Babylon-Suite, featured on this debut recording from Swiss duo Vera Kappeler on keyboards and vocals and Peter Conradin Zumthor on drums, toy piano and vocals. The Babylon in the title is the Babylon of the Book of Daniel, the lion’s den, the young men singing in the fiery furnace, a place of perdition, a labyrinth. Commissioned by the Origen Festival Cultural, the Babylon-Suite was premiered in July 2012 in the reverberant cavern of the Swiss hydroelectric power plant at Tinizong and eventually recorded in Lugano in June 2013.
