Boomkat Product Review:
The kosmiche elder and legendary co-founder of Cluster/Kluster and Harmonia is subject of this bountiful new retrospective scanning his pastoral synth morsels and cranky machine-made oddities
Plucked from Moebius’ ample cabinet of curios by Asmus Tietchens, a former collaborator and acolyte, the 7th solo Collection is intended to portray “the clearest insight into his personality and inventive potential” according to Tietchens. On the one hand it holds timeless charmers such as the swaying bliss of ‘Rattenwiesel’ with its lilting ohrwurm motif from 1983’s ‘Tonspuren’, and the curtain closing hush of ‘Das Ende’ from the ‘Blue Moon’ (1986) soundtrack, or the 10 minutes of opiated drift in ‘Tiefenbahn’ to exemplify Moebius’ more sensual side.
However, the bulk is given to some devilishly odd zingers such as ‘The Tracker’ with its haunting choral ambient samples excavated from his late period, plus a jagged, haywire ace ‘Rast’, and slow grinder ‘Flag’ that possibly betrays the similarities between Bruce Gilbert/Dome and the krautrockers, or ‘Markt’ which highlights the influence of endless African musical structures on the infinite pulse of new german music that the likes of Moebius and his ilk brought into being back at the turn of the ‘60s.
