"Ken Moore (from Baltimore, Maryland) is one of the very early american DIY-Synthesists & Mult-Instrumental Talents. Ken started to explore electronic music in the mid 70’s along-side working in various (progressive)-Rock formations
This Lp is a collaboration-work of two musicians under the moniker ELIXIR.
It consists of Ken Moore (Hammond organ, Moog synthesizer, Lowrey organ, ARP SE and Fender Rhodes electric piano), Larry Jeter (on Premiere drums, custom chimes, cymbals and percussion) and with the support of Mark Chance (electric bass guitar). It’s primarily a groove-session percussion album with the usage of keyboards. Putting three musicians together from different backgrounds was an experiment all its own. Mark Chance was a rock bass guitarist who was integrating his own style of playing with what was a cohesion of jazz and electronic music. Sort of a free-form improvisational jam session with the drummer honed in to every lick the keyboard player emitted. Truly this is a collaboration of Jeter and Moore, who came from two different backgrounds, yet willing to try something different. The recording was released as Tape (AC05) in 1981 on Ken’s Anvil Creations Label."
