In his previous seven albums, Los Angeles composer Frederick Moore has produced a stylistically varied body of work that has included forays into microtonality, musique concrete, chamber music, beat poetry, and other more esoteric approaches, but which have always yielded to a sense of harmonic and structural cohesion. "Heimweh", his latest album, is perhaps his most accessible to date. That being said, it is in itself a stylistically wide-ranging and tonally adventurous work that discerning listeners may find to be a worthy discovery.
Another influence on Moore’s work has been his deep interest in Greek tragedy, Shakespeare, and poetry from the 16th century to the present time. Moore is also a well-regarded educator and has spent the past ten years at Venice High School where he teaches AP Literature and Composition.
