Mobius Loop began on 08/08/08 in Preston, Lancashire,
inspired by a 950ft crop circle created on this date by an anonymous artist(s).
The following witness report of the crop circle by 'GODDESS ON THE LOOSE' epitomizes
the ethos of our creative journey and is the write-up that inspired the name 'Mobius Loop' :
m o b i u s l o o p E s t 0 8 / 0 8 / 0 8
"On the eighth day of the eighth month
of the eighth year of the twenty first century
the number eight appears
in one of the fields of Wiltshire.
The Mobius Loop is an expression of non-duality.
It reveals the Unity of all polarities,
creating a state of Oneness,
joining the whole and the part,
the masculine and the feminine,
expansion and contraction,
spirit and matter, etc.
Everything is One
and nothing can be separated from anything else. All is completely intertwined, infinitely.
The Mobius Loop is a spiritually significant
symbol of balance and union.
The Buddhist philosophy of Tantrism also is expressed by the Mobius Loop shape.
“Tantra” is continuity; the word derived from the root ‘tan’, meaning to extend… extend continuously,
to flow, to weave."
"We are married by our love of philosophical songwriting;
channeling each lyric, melody, rhythm & harmony
& weaving them into the tapestry of our union
which is sanctified by the co-creation
of our journey." - Alexander & Katie Orion

Sean O'Hara, brother of alexander a.k.a 'Uncle SeanO'
provides the HEART BEAT to the MOBIUS LOOP songs
on PERCUSSION & DRUMS
"Mobius Loop are a coalition of creatives
who have weaved their musical minds into a beautiful tapestry
which offers colour in sound and folklore story telling
of modern day society, revolutions and revelations."
"Mobius Loop’s experience in the arts of experimental music
is channeled through intelligent song writing
in a blend of mesmerizing melodies, conscious rap,
enlightening lyrics and invigorating beats."
"When playing live Mobius loop offer a colourful dynamic to their performance,
Katie integrates her passion in the arts into her dance and vocals
in a manner that will hypnotise and capture the hearts of any audience.
The natural beauty of her voice will take you to a place
of true knowing with her healing holy harmonies.
Alex's ability to create such a quirky flow with his lyrics
whilst playing the high level of music on whichever instruments
he has nominated for the role is exceptional.
And finally Sean's natural rhythm infuses with his
craft of percussion to keep the beats flowing and he flourishes
in his percussive ability to flitter between
clever time signatures & native rhythm styles."
