Live: Guido Möbius – Record Release Party for “Gebirge” recently released on Karaoke Kalk.
Guests: Jason Forrest, Vert
DJs: Marc Richter (Dekorder), Strobocop (Karaoke Kalk)
As a solo-artist Guido Möbius creates a very unique and intimate sound. A whole lot of instruments, most of them acoustic, define the soundcollage. Brittle soundtissues and sweet tones blend in complex arrangements. With his debut Möbius masters the thin line between lightness and complexity. The list of the used instruments (guitar, bass, glockenspiel, voice, Jew´s harp, banjo, percussions, Portasound Samplingkeyboard, Moog…) alone shows the musical versatility and a mind to test and try. That he loves to collaborate with guest musicians (especially with those who play instruments he cannot master himself) rounds off the picture.
Always having an eye on the groove, Möbius has a special liking for small parts of polyrhythmic percussion-patterns and constantly changing harmonies. You could call it playing around with hearing expectations or creative restlessness and fear of stagnation. Well, it´s definitely a highly original idea for popmusic.
