Curious Music has announced a new tribute to the late Dieter Moebius (Cluster, Harmonia, Cluster & Eno).

Moebius (1944 – 20 July 2015) is best known for his contributions to the development of ambient, kosmische and ‘Krautrock’ music.

Moebius Strips is a multichannel audio installation for museums, festivals, galleries, and other public spaces.

Created by American composer Tim Story, who collaborated with Moebius on several albums, Moebius Strips features thousands of sounds, noises, samples and loops from Moebius’s collection, which are combined in new and ever-evolving layers in the installation’s soundstage.

The installation also features artists who have been influenced by his work, as well as former collaborators, including contributions from Geoff Barrow (Portishead, Beak), Sarah Davachi, Jean-Benoît Dunckel (Air), Eve Maret, Mark Mothersbaugh (Devo), Phew, Hans-Joachim Roedelius (Cluster, Harmonia), Michael Rother (Harmonia, Kraftwerk, NEU!) and Yuri Suzuki.

The installation will launch in November 2021 at the Witching Hour Festival. Details are still to be announced.

A CD version of Moebius Strips is also available to pre-order, and a limited “museum-edition” audiophile vinyl release is planned for Spring 2022.
