When the Shadows Came Upon us All

When the Shadows Came Upon us All is the fourth Wayfarer album, released in 2012. This album explores the metaphysical with a sound palette that draws upon abstract imagery that strives to reach one at an archetypal level.

Credits

  • Music composed, performed, and engineered by Lawrence W. Moore
  • Album artwork created by Lawrence W. Moore

Album Description

When the Shadows Came Upon us All was inspired by the Toltec concept of the “fliers” or “shadows,” which are inorganic beings that inhabit the Earth on varying planes of existence. They feed off of our conscious energy, our luminous shells that surround us on non-physical planes of existence. We feel this as a weakening of our personal strength, both physical and spiritual. Our only resistance against this effect is to achieve extended moments of inner silence, making our energy less attractive to them. These moments of silence allow us to escape the routines and program of our lives to uncover new found freedom. It is an evolutionary process for human beings to first realize this struggle and then to overcome it.

Album Description

C Journey was composed entirely using Csound, the open-source scripting for sound generation. The magic behind the music in this album is that all of the music was composed in text files, utilizing the Csound scripting language. Turning text and numbers into sound, Lawrence W. Moore has created magical soundscapes that derive from the text-based programming of each piece, like spells cast from magical scrolls.

Tale Told by an Idiot

Tale Told by an idiot was released in 2005 and continues the eclectic approach from Sanctuary, with more emphasis on electronica and lounge.

Credits

  • Music composed, performed, and engineered by Lawrence W. Moore
  • Album artwork designed by Lawrence W. Moore, based on the painting entitled Jester in a Poppy Field by Jeremy Hauser

Album Description

Tale Told by an idiot is the second Wayfarer album and was completed in 2005. Like Sanctuary, it features more of my personal music as opposed to what I had been composing in my compositional studies. At this point I was already studying toward my doctorate in composition, but I still felt the need to compose for myself in a more personal manner, away from the perpetually judgmental eyes of academia. This album features a mix of music that spans electronica, new age, trance, and experimental music. It was a fun album to make.
