Limited edition of 200. Ken Moore (from Baltimore, Maryland) is one of the very early American DIY synthesists and multi-instrumental talents. Moore started to explore electronic music in the mid '70s while working in various (progressive) rock formations. In 1980 he established his own label, Anvil Creations, and in the following four years released approximately 20 tapes of solo and collaborative works he had recorded between 1973 and 1983. His solo work of that era bridges abstract electronic music with synthesizers and Mellotron and more psychedelic rock-based material he had primarily produced in the early to mid '70s. He also collaborated with Stuart Rosenzweig and founded the progressive rock duo Moore/Myers with David Wayne Myers. Moore was also very active in James Finch's International Electronic Music Association (IEMA), which started in 1979. Besides newsletters with contact-lists for subscribing musicians or reviews of cassettes, IEMA also organized festivals for musicians and released a series of seven IEMA collective/group compilation tapes containing musicians of the IEMA. Ken Moore was the man behind those tape compilations and their distribution. This set includes tracks from Tempus Fugit (1980), To Come Into Being (1981), Loubi Stem (1981), To No Avail (1980), and The Jupiter Effect (1984) (all recorded 1976-'84), Frame of Reference (written 1972, rec. 1977-'79, rel. 1980), and In a Pound of Logic (1983).
