1 - MOEBIUS, DIETER - BLOTCH - (CD) 
BUREAU B


Dieter Moebius-half of the legendary duo Cluster and the godfather of electronic krautrock-passed away in the summer of 2015. Bureau B is now rereleasing his last four solo albums. The series begins with Blotch from 1999, featuring loop-based tracks which delve stoically into experimental sonic atmospheres that playfully and sensuously hypnotize the listener.Blotch is a turning point in the work of Dieter Moebius. His late solo work holds some very exciting releases in store for us. While the predecessor Tonspuren was marked by an erratic lightness, an exhilarating sweetness in the elektrokraut style of NEU! and Harmonia, Blotch marks a late revival of the somewhat more oblique and experimental early work of Cluster.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Ondulation (4:00) 02. Meltaway (6:00) 03. Temperate (3:45) 04. The Tracker (8:25) 05. Im Raum (12:00) 06. Kohlzug (11:00) 07. Balistory (8:30)

3 - MOEBIUS, DIETER - DING - (CD) 
BUREAU B


If Dieter Moebius previous album Kram was an irreverent mlange of bright synthetic textures, 2011s Ding might be considered Moebis industrial album. There is a cyclical, mechanical feel to many of the pieces here-but this is light industry, not heavy machinery. Small, discrete contraptions churn out curious objects as the listener strolls the factory floor, the combinations evolving as perspectives shift with each step taken. Moebi made extensive use of a relatively portable sample recorder/looper during the creation of Ding, and the freedom to capture random bits of sound in the natural (or unnatural) world must have been inspiring. These organic ambiences might have evoked a terrain that feels familiar, except of course that this is a Moebius album. Angular rhythms, disembodied voices, repeated loops of audio debris all combine to forge a facsimile of reality that is wonderfully peculiar.The earthy environments of Ding give it a remarkable depth of field, and Moebi masterfully allows a great deal of transparency in the mixes. The smallest of musical cues-the alternating, faraway chords which float through "Bone," for example-are sufficient to tie the seemingly disparate elements together into a satisfying, truly musical experience. The strands of natural, mechanical, and electronic sounds are so deftly juxtaposed that music never quite overwhelms noise, and the clamor is never allowed to stifle Dings strange poetry.Altogether, Ding feels like something of a small revelation-theres liberation in Moebis willful escape from a sound palette confined solely to his synthesizers. If the notion of manipulated, overlapping field recordings sounds dry and abstract, Ding is anything but. In places, the loping, syncopated pulses suggest the polyrhythms of African music, even funk-but its a state which never quite materializes because the rhythm loops are almost always trimmed slightly too long or too short, deliberately interrupting the "groove" that otherwise could have taken hold. So its music you might conceivably dance to, if your legs arent quite the same length. Mentally, its much easier to dance with Ding. Shot through with Moebis humor and extraordinary imagination, its provocative choreography of music and noise remains one of his most seductive

6 - MOEBIUS, DIETER - KRAM - (CD) 
BUREAU B


Recorded in 2008, Krams playfully disjointed rhythms and shiny plastic surfaces give us just a glimpse perhaps of Moebis own state of mind-content, at ease, and happy to be working on music. With small mobile recording setups in Berlin and Majorca where he and Irene split their time, he recorded when the muse struck (although he would hate the word "muse"). In English, "kram" means "stuff" and the title is fitting. Synthetic, toy-like sounds skitter across the soundstage, colliding with those unlikely rhythms, and modulating in real time with Moebis unmistakable hand on the controls. Funny, warped, joyfully cluttered, Kram unapologetically embraces its disposable sounds and sly humor. Imbued throughout with his singular conception of music and sound, its arguably Moebius most cheerful and mis-chievous album, and its all the richer for it.Moebi was a champion of the everyday-self-effacing in both his life and his music. In Kram, he elevates the commonplace, then promptly subverts the touchstones which make it familiar. The lack of overt "emotionality" in his work sometimes obscures the humanity and depth thats always there, lurking behind the fabricated surfaces. Kram is a perfect example. Though he would be quick to dismiss it, the warmth of Moebis personality drifts indelibly through it. Tim Story

8 - MOEBIUS, DIETER - NURTON - (CD) 
BUREAU B


On the second album of his late solo work, the krautrock legend Dieter Moebius (+ 2015) searches for flaws and uses them as a creative impulse. As usual, he blithely ignores any mainstream expectations.On Nurton Moebius demonstrates his true greatness: From a seemingly arbitrary initial loop, he almost imperceptibly creates a hypnotic experimental atmosphere: linear, without escalation, stoic, with clarity and to a hypnotic effect. In doing so, Moebius uses bolder and more experimental lead sounds than on his previous solo album Blotch, from seven years prior. The sonic impression is more diverse and feels reconciled with the sounds of digital synthesis. Only the last track of the album, fittingly titled Das Letzte, provides a preview of the musical development that would characterize Moebius solo releases to follow.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Anfahrt (4:48) 02. Gaengig (3:54) 03. Mahalmal (4:49) 04. Born Neo (4:56) 05. Schleudergang (3:29) 06. Flag (4:39) 07. Opaque (4:17) 08. Snorkel (4:54) 09. Story (3:44) 10. Sad (4:40) 11. Warum? (3:32) 12. Moskito (3:01) 13. April (3:53) 14. Das Letzte (3:53)
