Dieter Moebius - unknown

Full review to follow. Moebius, known for his solo work as well as his collaborations with Cluster, Roedelius, Harmonia and Brian Eno casts a long shadow over electronic music. Nearing seventy, he's not playing for nostalgia, touring with a minimalist setup (CD players, kaoss pad and sampler) similar to many young DIY artists. Some of the music he played here might serve to suggest how broad his influence is (one song sounded something like Flying Lotus, another could have easily passed for a track from, say, Dirty Beaches or US Girls) but though the crowd was demonstrably abuzz with his performance, there wasn't a lot here to suggest that he's transcending the work now being done by those descendants — or even stuff that you could see around the city on a weekly basis.
