What is The Wayfarer Project?
The Wayfarer Project was originally founded in 1999 by Lawrence W. Moore as the home for his music compositions, which are released under the artist name, Wayfarer. Since this time, TWP has expanded in its scope to include Moore’s creative endeavors overall. While music is still at the heart of Moore’s creative endeavors, he has, over the years, expanded into other forms of multimedia art and has engaged in teaching others about music, music technology, synthesis, and audio production. Now a homesteader in North Florida, Moore continues to create music, multimedia art, and educational content for those who want to learn more about music, music technology, audio production, synthesis, and interactive media. The Wayfarer Project is now evolved into a home for all these endeavors.
Wayfarer was started by Lawrence W. Moore in 1995 while he was studying at Lebanon Valley College, in Annville, PA. As with much of the trend at the time, the music was composed in the electronic medium with inspiration with what was happening int he new age music movement at the time. The music included a lot of world music elements as well as the the lush, vibrant, yet sometimes dark and ethereal creations of Moore’s imagination.
As Moore continued his academic studies and compose music in the arena of art music, the music evolve a more abstract nature to it and the focus was more on challenging the ear and Moore’s own intellectual interests than that which Wayfarer music had been about before.
Currently, Moore is composing music that combines the intellect and the emotional sides of being as a more balanced exploration of creativity. Moore combines his music with his own video art in many cases, and is finding a very fulfilling relationship with analog synthesizers in creating new music. Moore is collaborating with artists of other forms of media and is actively involve dint eh Psyche Electro-Acoustic Opera Company, which incorporates video, lighting, staging, dance, and interactive technology with electro-acoustic music to create a compelling 360 degree experience for audiences.
As Moore continues to explore this life and the reality both within himself and outside of himself, he will continue to create music and multimedia art. The new adventure will be one on the path of Wayfarer again, in which the pursuit of true knowledge is the guiding light for all creativity.
