"When writing the music to 'Babylon' I hardly paid attention to the principle of illustrating each shot come what may. I started out from the key shot in any given series... The music is sustained as an uninterrupted symphonic whole. The main aim of the music is to keep to the tempo and rhythm of the film and to enhance its impact".
