Boomkat Product Review:
"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 In 1980 Ken established his own label called Anvil Creation and in the following 4 years released appr. 20 Tapes with his Solo or Collaboration-Works he had recorded between between 1973 and 1983. Ken's solo work of that era bridges abstract electronic music with synthesizers and Mellotron, through to more psychedelic rock based material he had primarily produced in the early to mid 70’s. He also collaborated with Stuart Rosenzweig and he founded the progressive rock duo Moore/Myers with David Wayne Myers, etc. Ken was also very active for 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 organiszed festivals for musicians and released a series of 7 IEMA Collective/Group Compilation-Tapes containing musicians of the IEMA-Group. Ken Moore was the man behind those special Tape-Compilations and its distribution.
