Steve Moore - demo 2003 lp (lim. 500 coloured 180 gr. vinyl)

You may have already heard Steve Moore's work as one-half of the unbelievably awesome prog-rock instrumental duo Zombi, or through his phenomenal first solo-album called "The Henge" (Relapse/Static Caravan, 2007). Now Moore gives us "Demo 2003," a re-issue of his first solo recordings from the turn of the millenium. In contrast to Zombi's tightly structured progressive epics, "Demo 2003" is an exploratory, psychedelic meditation. Over the course of its 10 tracks, including the previously unreleased "Fever Dream", "Demo 2003" explores psychedelic paths through dark atmospheres and drifting harmonies. Smaller in scale than "The Henge," these tracks document Moore's initial fascination with analog synthesizers, focusing more on experimental timbres and droning ambience than on composition or form. This is why this long-player becomes the soundtrack of the mind. It is paranoid, monumental music that hypnotizes the listener with an unholy mix of gloomy, nightmarish, electronic ambiences and the neverending and almighty cosmic beauty.

Limited to 500 copies!

nice reveiw from boomkat (uk):

Blue Marbelled Vinyl - EXTRMELEY LIMITED COPIES BACK IN STOCK!** You've got to admire Steve Moore's handle on aesthetics. Just look at this sleeve. I can't decide which I love more: the front, which nerdishly repeats his name in a dodgy Tron-like font, or the back with its slightly rubbish, digitally rendered purple mountain-scape. The naffness of the sleeve compounds the imagery of horror and sci-fi B-movies that follows his band, Zombi around, but there's a craftsmanship to Moore's synthesizer compositions that isn't done justice by all those associations. Moore doesn't help matters much by giving his tracks names like 'Underwater Worlds', and there is something distinctly schlocky about the arpeggio pattern that lumbers in once the track fires up fully, but that doesn't detract from the beautiful analogue sound sculpting this man's capable of, and there's ample evidence of that on this wonderful LP. The original issue of Demo 2003 came around the same time as Zombi's Twilight Sentinel EP, and was pressed up onto 50 CD-Rs. Having been treated to Moore's debut solo album The Henge but six months or so ago, it's a joy to be confronted by this excellent (possibly superior) early material. While The Henge featured smatterings of drums and the like, this LP is exclusively synth-based and is all the better for it. If you didn't know better, you could easily fool yourself into thinking this was some lost library record from the early eighties. You'd be advised to get one of these while you can...
