We are delighted to welcome the fantastically talented, wonderfully adventurous Mobius Trio to Ariel Artists.
Described by the eminent Sergio Assad as “the most inventive and exciting young guitar ensemble today,” Mobius Trio aims to use the most popular, ubiquitous instrument in the world — the guitar — to create a new lexicon of music; one that freely combines the varied influences of musicians who grew up with unfettered access to the world’s entire musical library.
To accomplish this, they collaborate with composers and other musicians – including Samuel Carl Adams, Adrian Knight, Dan Becker, Nick Vasallo, and others – to commission pieces that reflect this beautiful musical schizophrenia: “classical,” punk, bebop, metal, folk, hardcore, and many other genres form the DNA of this music, in which the walls between genres cease to exist and old dichotomies start to unravel.
Now enjoy a video premiere of Mobius communing with electric guitar feedback in a March 14, 2014 performance of Nick Vasallo’s metal-influenced work, Dark Matter, at Cal Poly. (And check out the excellent coverage of this performance in this month’s I Care If You Listen magazine.)
