Lawrence W. Moore is a composer of electro-acoustic music, producer of multimedia art, developer of software tools, and a professor of higher education. LWM Music is the internet presence of his work in the multimedia arts, involving both the promotion of his pieces and the promotion of education in the fields of synthesis, software development, multimedia art, and interactive systems for multimedia art.
Dr. Moore created LWM Music as an outlet for presenting his music and software developments and as a forum for teaching and learning more about new technologies and developments in the multimedia arts. Much of the focus is on synthesis, sound design, and the implementation of software and hardware tools in achieving new musical creations.
Beyond his academic endeavors and experimental music, Moore also enjoys composing music that takes on a new age, world fusion, and electronica mix that is imaginative and spirituality-based. He releases this music under the artist name, Wayfarer. More information about this side project can be found at The Music of Wayfarer website. Wayfarer music is a powerful breed of electronic musical sorcery that will take the imagination on an enchanted journey to a realm where dream and reality become one.
