Dieter Moebius – RIP


Gravissimo lutto. Scompare a 71 anni il seminale artista svizzero Dieter Moebius che lega il suo nome all’epopea kraut dei Cluster (inizialmente si chiamano Kluster) e successivamente a quella straordinaria degli Harmonia assieme a Rother e Conrad Schnitzler. Proprio Michael Rother scrive: “Very sad news today for all friends of Dieter Moebius and his unique music. Our friend, neighbour and collaborator passed away this morning, July 20th 2015. He will be missed dearly by all of us. Our thoughts go out to his wife, Irene. RIP, Dieter (Möbi)”. Le cause del decesso ancora non si conoscono. L’ultimo album rimane ‘Nidemonex’ del 2014.

Dalla pagina dei Cluster viene ricordato così:

Dieter Moebius best friend of mine since 1969 and collegue in “Kluster”,”Cluster” and”Harmonia”died this morning. One of the tracks of one of our most beautiful albums is called “In Ewigkeit” ( in Eternity ). The album itself is called “Sowiesoso” ( approximately “anywayway” ). What we did is very well respected all over the globe since we began to work as “Kluster” and “Cluster” and with Clusters sidestep “Harmonia”. In Japan people call us “Originators of Space-age” the german Newspaper “Die Welt” once wrote “Lärmsäge” ( Noise-saw ? ) We did most interesting records and played “thousands” of concerts around the globe within a period of about 40 years. We were quasi constantly on the road since 1969 until 2010.

Sowiesoso describes best what was our aim since we decided to get into the matter to become musicians/ composers : Just to do it” to do what we liked to in the way we were able to and had fun with it, with friends / supporters involved all over the world first to mention Bernd Neumann-Schönwetter, Conni Schnitzler, Jerry Kilian, Conni Plank, Brian Eno, Tim Story and many more.
He became 71 this January, he was ten years younger.
