A multilingual spoken word album, a musical hear-play (“hörspiel”) exploring the underbelly of modern life, alternative histories and the allegedly imminent take-over of the world by artificial intelligence. In a loose nod to German radio-plays of the 1920s, the album ‘Hörspiel’ uses semi-random texts culled from the Interweb, performed by synthetic speech-robots using questionable online machine translations (Chinese, Russian, French, English, Tuvan, Japanese, German, Hindi, Spanish, Turkish etc.) while Blabbermouth provide a soundtrack of ambient, industrial, pop, world, folk, free improv soundscape & post-punk.
