Babylon by vogelmann

“Babylon (Akkadian: Bābili or Babilim; Arabic: بابل‎, Bābil) was a significant city in ancient Mesopotamia, in the fertile plain between the Tigris and Euphrates rivers. The city was built upon the Euphrates and divided in equal parts along its left and right banks, with steep embankments to contain the river’s seasonal floods. Babylon was originally a small Semitic Akkadian city dating from the period of the Akkadian Empire c. 2300 BC.”

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Babylon

I’m impressed by what people back then did. I mean, all of this stuff happened WAY before Christ, and all of us still benefit from the cultural wealth and technical inventions of that time. Since no one knows many things about Babylon for sure, I invented a sonic story about it. Any cheese, dark- or foolishness in the track is intended. It’s a fantasy story.

I used original instruments from back then (paired with modern electronics), which may have sounded different, but again: no one knows that. This piece of music is my interpretation of things. Maybe you enjoy it, I hope you do. 🙂

Written, produced, arranged, mixed and mastered (and all that stuff) by Ingo Vogelmann.

Ingo Vogelmann – Starlit Days (Addliss Twinkling Remix) [Free Download] by Addliss

Some years ago I remixed some of Ingo Vogelmann’s tracks from his GOD-Album “Aquarius”. Over 3 years ago I put out the “Long Road To Self” remix and it got quite a good reaction. I don’t know why, but I somehow forgot to release the “Starlit Days” remix which was in the Chillout genre.
