about

The complete Grid Series recordings: APRAXIA, LEBENSUHR, METROSCAPE, and APOGEE

APRAXIA was originally released on cassette in 2015 by Metaphysical Circuits.


"Babel is no stranger to the sounds of the nostalgic event horizon. The Grid Series is a captivating exploration of all things 80s and synthesized; it sounds like the most artificial breakfast cereal you could put in your mouth, covered in vibrant Tron colours."
~ Gray Owl Point

"...looking at the artwork for this one makes me think it's going to sound more like "Tron" than it actually does .... feelings of "Halloween" and just a John Carpenter presence overall. It can loop, it can sort of scream at times and it can even drone. This is one of those essential synth based pieces of music because it just seems to push synth to new levels .... There exists this eerie sense to the music as well. I suppose that could come with the "Doctor Who" references I feel, but it also has elements of "The X-Files" in it as well. At times you feel like you could really be getting into trouble, yet other times could leave you at the edge of your seat, biting your nails. There is also this energy in the music, which changes levels at times but it never really seems to die down to the point where you just feel like you're endlessly floating through space— it always maintains a steady drive; no downtime. Much like how Queen curated a soundtrack to the movie "Flash Gordon", I suspect this of being some similar soundtrack to some lost or forgotten movie which I'm sure I would have really loved had I seen it in the 1980's or even later on in my teens .... there really isn't really a better way than to describe this one as a space synth odyssey..." ~ Raised By Gypsies
