Mòs Ensemble: Behind The Marble
Mòs Ensemble is a band around Belgian bass player Kobe Boon. Initial a seven-piece band formed in Ghent, their key element was looking for a wide range of possibilities with the human voice. Ranging from jazz to classical, from electronic to indie influences, all of the musicians being very open-minded in their musical interest.
Vocals, text and music maintain a loose connection, constantly involved in an entwined exploration. Folk, jazz, pop and chamber music are decorated with electronic touches, put layer upon layer and let them rub against each other. The first moment you are sucked into a mysterious, pastoral trip, and the next you are caught between euphoria and melancholia, with guitars, voices and reeds fighting for dominance.
Behind the Marble is an ode to imagination and the power of phantasy, but also: a feast of grasped opportunities. mòs ensemble plays music that dares to be voluptuous, takes risks, aims for finales that will explode on stages, and subsequently uncover sidetracks. Genres don’t matter anymore. This music is colorful and expressive, spurred on by a beating heart, at the same time triggered from a central organism that combines emotions, colors, textures and lust poetry like a clenched fist.
The most fascinating music does not only offer something recognisable, but also opens new doors. That is exactly what happens here. Behind the Marble is a courageous next step, a generous immersion and an open invitation.
