Reverse Mode is a four piece band from Berlin. Their music combines classical elements, free improvisation and electronics, while drawing inspiration from the Greek musical tradition. The result of this cultural interplay is a sonic journey through original compositions that manifest big emotions and explore worlds that lie beyond our everyday experience of reality.
Their ﬁrst album, “Mora”, is inspired by the Night Hag, the fantasy creature from the folklore of many various cultures that is often used to explain the phenomenon of sleep paralysis. The Night Hag, also known as Mora, is said to appear as a demonic ﬁgure in the form of an old woman who is trying to steal the speech of the sleeper, often causing asphyxiation and mental paralysis. Taking this idea a bit further, "Mora" looks into the ways that one confronts their fears - do they remain paralysed and static or do they ﬁnd a way to ﬁght and conquer their fears?
