Album review: “Last Light” by Mobius Trio

‘Last Light’ is the first album released by Mobius Trio. Formed by Robert Nance, Mason Fish and Matthew Holmes-Linder, this amazing trio of musicians is rapidly becoming known in the music scene today, thanks to their ability to embrace various musical currents and their decision to exclusively play songs commissioned by them. The young group, formed in 2010, has already collected much acclaim and appreciation in its first two years, to the extent that Sergio Assad describes them as ‘the most inventive and exciting young guitar ensemble today’.

Many influences can be found in these twelve tracks. A pervasive tendency  towards more innovative writing shows the commitment to follow the path outlined by authors such as Roland Dyens and Leo Brouwer. The intent of overcoming the limitations of the instrument is immediately evident in Making Good Choices, a triptych composed by Brendon Randall-Myers. The melodic pointillism alternates percussive rhythms characterized by a dense dialectic of instrumental parts where the limits and dynamic contrasts give us an excellent example of executive synergy. The Three Persian Dances by Sahba Aminikia, very concise and expressive, transport us into a world where the oriental musical elements typical of the composer’s native area make for a sensual and charming experience.

How to Shatter Light: Homage to Benjamin Britten by Matthew Cmiel is a great example of how to cite the traditional repertory ironically, in this case the ‘Nocturnal’ of the famous British composer. The contemporary language returns in Needle-play by Anthony Porter where pointillism is still in the foreground, polytonal and pleasantly ludic and full of  interlocutory suspensions.

Screaming from the Skies by Clayton Moser is masterfully played. At the beginning the trio almost evokes the sound of a music box but the sweetness is soon interrupted by restless sounds and rhythms  carrying the listener towards a climax that finally flows into a more tonal and relaxed  atmosphere. Certainly one of the most intense and evocative tracks of the whole album.
In A Place That Inhabits Us by Danny Clay we have a sort of ballad researching into sound, with an excellent combination of prepared guitars and neo-melodic hits. The Transition by Garrett Shatzer is a homage to tradition and at the same time another example of the versatility and flexibility of these three young talents.

Finally the title track, Last Light by Dan Becker: dissonance and consonance, trepidation and poetry, light and shadow. A framework composed of various sensations and colors rapidly evolving into perspectives that reveal constant changes, where confirmations lead to new unpredictable outcomes.

‘Last Light’: a continuous ascent to new and unexpected landing places.

Wishing them good job, we look forward to their next work.

New collaboration with english violinist/violist Andrew Smith

Hi to everyone, i am happy to inform you that a new collaboration with the excellent musician Andrew Smith began. Andrew is a professional and award winning english violinist/violist and we are honored to work with and have him on our team. His experience as a concert performer, soloist and studio musician expand our creative and productive possibilities both in film and concert music. We recently worked on the overdub recording of the string parts in the piece titled “Main Theme” (currently in the mixing stage) which will shortly be posted in the music section of our website. I would also point out the beautiful work done by Andrew with his “Elan Duo” with Elina Christova at the piano. The project focuses on the production of the entire series of Beethoven’s violin and cello sonatas … I would invite all of you to listen carefully because, as a composer, i consider that all the work is permeated by a beautiful interplay and a high expressive and communicative strength. Thanks Andrew and Elina
