Noise Club - The Moebius Trip
The Moebius Trip is Noise Club's first full-length album. It represents the culmination of their artistic development with a sound world that is entirely their own. The album envisages entire worlds, built through sound colour: a symphony for the modern age.
In mathematics, the Moebius strip is a surface with only one side and one boudary line. It sounds impossible, yet the reality is so simple: take a strip of paper, twist it half way around and connect the two ends. The Moebius strip has many curious properties resulting from its geometry. If it is cut down the middle, instead of getting two strips, we get one long strip with two full twists in it. This paradoxical entity was the inspiration behind the album.
The album was recorded live in the studio by Tom Smith. There are no overlays and little post-editing. The result is an album true to the live Noise Club experience. During the recording, Roz Hyde created live visuals, using a contact mic to pick up the sonic process of her drawing; the analogy of 'painting in sound' has rarely held so true.
