Described by the eminent Sergio Assad as “the most inventive and exciting young guitar ensemble today,” the Mobius Trio’s mission is to use the most popular, ubiquitous instrument in the world — the guitar — to create a new lexicon of music shaped by the culture of our time but able to live on in perpetuity.
Mobius began the month of March with a concert in their home town of San Francisco, at Old First Concerts, which featured the world premiere of “Adderall,” the first movement in a proposed evening-length composition for Mobius byAaron Gervais, to be called collectively Prescription Drug Nation. (Mobius was just awarded a grant from the Clarence E. Heller Charitable Foundation to help support this work.)
This weekend, Mobius participates in the 14th annual Brownsville Guitar Festival, hosted by UT Brownsville, offering master classes and educational workshops, as well as a concert.
These dates follow a tour of Germany, in which they performed in Frankfurt and at the Akademie für Tonkunst Darmstadt. (Be sure to check out the photos from this trip in this Facebook album.)
And, in the midst of these excellent dates, Mobius is hard at work in the recording studio, laying down new and recent works by Samuel Carl Adams, Adrian Knight, Nick Vasallo, and others, for an upcoming album, “Bon Voyage.” Look for more information about this release from us, soon!
