  1. By this time, Dave Vosh and Ken Moore have been playing live performances for five years. This is Safe Creations' fifth release as a digital download, this time on Anvil Creations' Bandcamp site, so it was not offered for sale (only name-your-price). Ken felt that it was the duo's most ambient project to date, and having been reading about NASA's success story with the space probe Cassini, and its termination after exploring Saturn, he felt that the music on the album best suited the images that were sent back to Earth. Using a picture that Ken took, of an original painting hanging in the stud

  3. As soon as the disc started playing, I knew this was going to be an awesome adventure in sound. Jack's execution of the sound designs are excellent, and everything is crystal clear. I really liked the slowed down pace of track 10, "Alone, The Piano Dreams Of Harmonics". There is some similarity connecting the first track with the last. Most every piece moves at a fast pace. This is something you can play over and over again. I am going to look for the MODULATOR album next!
  4. I watched this earlier. I remember when I first bought this video, I wasn't as impressed with the music as I thought I would be. It is an interesting visit with classic equipment, but I seem to remember a statement about there being some kind of 3D viewing possible with this movie. It didn't work on my TV, because I didn't have the color cables hooked up.
  5. Recorded in Seven Valleys, PA during Ken's visit to Baltimore for his first live performance in many years. Each piece was composed during the morning hours, one for each day of the week prior to his concert with Dave Vosh as Safe Creations that Sunday at An Die Musik. During the decade of 2003-2009, Ken had the opportunity to purchase a Moog Sonic Six synthesizer, fully restored. He had recorded some tracks on the Tascam 38, but those were not available by the time this album was done. However, Ken did sample some sounds before he was forced to sell the unit to a musician in Canada (due
  6. This is a great reference book. I started to read through it, only my interest in keyboards and keyboard players had diminished over the years, and I became more interest in percussion. I will still pick it up now and then, just to relive the days of great keyboardists in progressive music.
  7. For twenty years, Nine Days Wonder sat on a shelf somewhere in the United Kingdom, awaiting approval for a cassette release. After the demo tape was sent to Alan, Wayne and Ken (aka- Moore/Myers) had disbanded, after trying to incorporate vocals into their instrumental music for a third release (titled "20/20"). Wayne contacted Auricle Music in 2007 and asked about the tape. Alan got it out and listened to it again; he was astounded that all the tape needed was some digital tweaking. After designing a cover, and remastering the music, Auricle released NDW on CD-R, along with the previously rel
  8. Pretty cool to see this. I don't think I ever had a copy, but I did buy the Manna/Mirage album by the Muffins, Hopes and Fears by Art Bears, and the Sabotage LP by Mars Everywhere. I think my roommate, Chuck, gave me a recording of some Lol Coxhill on cassette tape once; it had organ as a second instrument?
  9. This was the last distributed album, mastered for a CD-R and sent to Ron Wallace for his AfterTouch MDN publication for the CMC (Creative Musicians Coalition) in 1999. I was excited to be able to make a digital disc of my music, since the cassette tapes were discontinued on MDN, and paper catalogs were no longer sent out to members. It is essentially a collection of my favorite works from some of my first cassette albums that I was distributing via Anvil Creations using a mail order catalog. Tracks included were from "Tempus Fugit" (EMS #1), "To Come Into Being" (EMS #2), and "To No Avail" (EM
  10. The music on this album was recorded between 1988 and 1991 at Anvil Creations Studio. In the 1990s, ACS was not distributing music, so a cassette was released on Ron Wallace's CMC (Creative Musicians Coalition) MDN (Music Discovery Network) in the AfterTouch catalog [Vol. 7/8] in 1994. The title was advertised as "Plaster Anvil", but since Ken already had released a compilation cassette as "Plaster Anvil" (see Discogs) in the 1980s, the name was changed to "EsCaPe" in 2020 and a new cover was added for the page on Bandcamp. The master tape was a VHS cassette and there was no video synched for
  11. After being in a rock band [Kameleon/Runner] for three years, David Wayne Myers and Ken Moore felt that in order to play music the way they wanted, it was necessary to form their own group. Thus Wayne and Ken left the rock band and started to record at Ken's home studio in Baltimore, Maryland. After about a year, they had completed a selection of songs they wanted to publish. From Ken's extensive list of contacts [from the I.E.M.A.], they sent a promo tape to England. Steve and Alan Freeman were so taken with it that they not only released it on cassette, but they did an exclusive interview wi
  12. Love this picture. I owned both TONTO's Expanding Headband LPs when they first came out.
  13. This is very nice...and relaxing as well. I am not so familiar with Jack's work, but it seems that many of us have taken a break from publishing music at some time or another. If the cassette version wasn't SOLD OUT, I believe I would have ordered one. There are so many interesting things on this site, and I am anxious to check out more of Jack's work. Excellent recording!
  14. More information is given on the release page at B/C. I like this kind of music. For me, this is something I can listen to without doing anything else. Call it, "the real electronic music".
  15. Recorded in the 1970's, this was Ken's first Electronic Music album, which was available on cassette tape from Anvil Creations Studio, and for a short time through Archie Patterson's Eurock Distribution. Anvil Creations released it in 1980 by mail order only, on cassette tape (Maxell C-46). Some of these tracks were recorded in historic Ellicott City, near Baltimore, Maryland. Ken usually describes this kind of music as organic abstract music, although some electronic instruments are employed, such as the classic Minimoog from Moog MuSonics, and the ARP String Ensemble, as well as organs like
