MÖBIUS, GUIDO - THOUGH THE DARKNESS GATHERS (CD)


"Guido Möbius' fourth studio album "Spirituals" appeared in July 2012. "Spirituals" united subtle humour and dark premonition, transfiguration and kitsch. Six out of the nine pieces on this album use lyrics taken from traditional gospels. Without knowing the originals Möbius set the texts to new tunes and so used them for his own ends. The subject of spirituality is approached from track to track in very differing ways. Whether through hypnotic rhythms, cathartic noise or the reassuring sound of an amateur choir. Thereby the agnostic Möbius is not looking to provoke or at any kind of religious critique. Much more he has accustomed himself to something that is deeply rooted in the collective consciousness. Spirituals and gospels can be powerful and energetic. Guido Möbius has brought this energy into a new context. This playful style of creative conversion now finds its continuation. Möbius asked eight of his favourite contemporary musicians to make their own versions of his new Spirituals. The results could hardly be more varied or entertaining."
