Album Notes
Chroma Key - AKA Kevin Moore founding member of progressive metal legends Dream Theater.

All three Chroma Key releases to date have been self-produced recorded in Moore's home studios, the location of which changes album to album. After leaving Dream Theater in 1996, Moore relocated to Santa Fe, New Mexico, where much of the first album, 1998's Dead Air for Radios was written. 2000's You Go Now was written and recorded in Los Angeles, right before another move to Costa Rica, where Moore lived for 3 years. In Costa Rica he began writing and recording ideas for a new Chroma Key album, during the day producing a bi-weekly, activist, musical radio program for Radio for Peace International, a short wave station based in San Jose. Last year Moore released a compilation of the program - a mix of original music and politically volatile spoken word recordings - as a downloadable album on as The Memory Hole 1.

Long distance Memory Hole collaborator (and fellow CalArts graduate) Theron Patterson was teaching film and doing his own radio show in Istanbul when he invited Moore to visit and collaborate on a show last year. Soon after, Moore relocated to Istanbul and the pair began collaborating on new material for the weekly radio show Music Lab. Moore was also commissioned to score Turkey's first horror film, and the resulting soundtrack Ghost Book was released by InsideOut earlier this year. (2004)



to write a review


To be honest, I was kind of hesitant to check out the album as a whole, as I only ever looked into Chroma Key for its/his "sequel" to "Space Dye Vest", but I'm very glad that I purchased this album. Not too many flaws in it, and the price was pretty spiffy, too. Kevin Moore is a genius, and I'm slightly surprised this album isn't more widely distributed.


Fantastic sound, well beyond the usual fare.
This record collects three demos, and radio edits of three songs from the amazing album Dead Air For Radios. Some tracks remind me of early solo Rupert Hine, which in my book means being close to godhood. This is a perfect companion to DAFR, as you can get a feel for the development of On The Page, one of the key songs on the album. It would be cheap at twice the price. Buy at once, and look for DAFR as well.
