Transcribing Babel’s text into music, Hans-Peter Frehner followed a rigorous system of rules, with the words generating the melodic lines, and the letters the rhythm and harmony, while the action of the story determines the structure and form. It is an arcane system that becomes sound and music here, and which cannot be recognised simply by the ear. For the rules that determine our action and our longing are not visible on the surface, as we all know.They operate in the depths of our instincts, in our longings and passions – and this is the moral of Babel’s frivolous legend of Jesus – dangerous even for frail angels. — Michael Eidenbenz
