Carman Moore

Soul Musings (2CD)

Label: Reading Group

Format: 2CD

Genre: Experimental

In process of stocking


Reading Group is thrilled to present our second collaboration with the magisterial composer Carman Moore. Following the 2020 release of his gorgeous chamber soundtrack to the film "Personal Problems" (1980), "Soul Musings" is a double-CD representing Carman's innerly composerly life of the last several decades. Consisting mostly of sketched ideas, meditations, and improvisations on synthesizer or piano, this record is both an intimate portrait of the artist at home as well as spiritual gift. Disc 1, "Soul Musings," spans a broad range of sonic palettes and moods from the celebratory to the mournful, with a deep inquisitive presence of mind at work throughout. Disc 2, "Afro-Latin Meditations," builds from the New York-inspired musical environments Moore developed in "Personal Problems," a heartfelt dedication to the city where he has been composing and listening for more than 50 years.
