ABOUT THIS COMPILATION
„Voices of Babel / Babel of Voices“ is a fascinating tightrope walk between linguistics, literature and spoken word: The story of the tower of babel (Genesis 11, 1-9) read in modern constructed languages (conlangs), spoken by the conlang creators themselves. »Voices of Babel« displays language designers from Vietnam, USA, South Africa, France, Spain, Germany and Austria.
The tracks are compiled in alphabetical order + bonus art-track.

These recordings from all over the globe have a personal and recording-site-specific sound. They have been done mainly with non-professional recording devices, owned by the speakers who have been asked to do so. There has been done a post-mastering by Martyn Schmidt @ Hörbrot Studio 2015, Augsburg, Germany.

LYRICS:

De Turm von Babel - Atlaans

Nu de gansa weld hab een spraak en een gemeenda aksent.
As looda oos bewech, esse find een ruksha in Shinar en siedel dord.
Esse saach su mekaar, "Kom, lass un bousteenen machen, en esse gans doych bakken"
Esse benoot bausteen instatt von steen en teer voor morser. Dan esse
saach, "Kom mal, lass uns een staad bouen, mit een turm das bis in de himmel reech, so dass we kan uns ruum machen; sonda we wou serstreet over de gesich von de gansa aard"

Aver de Heer kom runna om de staad su sienen en de turm das de looda bou. De Heer saach, "Ob as een volk das de selber spraak praat esse begin das su dun, dan ken esser plan wou unmooklich voor essech. Kom, lass uns runna gaanen en verwirr esser praat so dass esse wou niet mekaar verstaan"

Dan de Herr serstreet essech von dord over de gansa weld, en esse is
das bouen von de staad stopd. Deshalb ar es Babel nennd - weel da de Heer verwirr de spraak von de gansa weld. Von dord de Heer serstreet essech over de gesich das gansa aard
