The radiophonic work Baalal is a veritable Tower of Babel of ideas and statements made up of scraps of texts, shards of language and musical memories. The absurd yakking, bellowing, hawking and retching of the text combine with flowing cultural-historical allusions all tossed off with joy and a lack of inhibition worthy of Rabelais.
