SoundSpiral - Babel Spring
Babel Spring is dedicated to my own mother, Julie Slavin, still very much alive!

This piece is all about the beauty of linguistic difference and the magic of human connectedness.

My mum set me on the road to recognising the joy of human language and culture. She taught me to regard everyone as a friend unless given good reason not to.

More prosaically, without my mumís wonderful help and support, keeping the kids entertained, collected from school, and even fed, while my attention was on the making of the Babel Spring baby, during 2012, it is pretty likely that the piece would never have got made.

Thank you mum, for everything.
