The Chap / Guido Möbius at Kantine am Berghain / Sunday, 5.11.2023

The Chap’s influences include the entire canon of all music ever as well as a lot of other stuff. They have musical backgrounds in pop, rock, post-atonal piano music, free improv and classical music.

Their live show is really dense and intense so you don’t know what the hell is going on but you’re loving every second of it. They’ve toured the UK and continental Europe countless times, and the US once, appearing at festivals such as SXSW, Roskilde, End of the Road and many more. In the process, they’ve won a very loyal fan base. Along the way, The Chap were asked by Beck, Bloc Party, Tom Vek, Gotye and others to provide remixes. Panos runs experimental music label Migro.

With the help of no more than his guitar, his voice, a trumpet and loads of effect pedals, Guido Möbius creates highly energetic music in between humour and hypnosis. Another element that makes his performances so special is his spontanous interaction with the audience.

Möbius always invites chance to be his accomplice. On stage Guido Möbius is surrounded by his serially connected effects units that he controls as if in a trance. In his live sets he creates delicate links between experimentation, handmade techno, funk, polyrhythmic pattern, acid, noise and gospel music. The twists and turns his music takes never fail to surprise the audience.

Methodically prepared passages and improvisation combine into a coherent set, and Möbius deals with the energy on the fly. Failures and restarts are constant companions and sources of inspiration. At times, Möbius piles up loops of vocal-, trumpet- or guitar-sounds into a mighty drone whose gravity is interrupted abruptly by a driving beat or a gospel choir.
