Frederick Moore is a composer, poet, and producer who lives and works in Los Angeles. He first gained attention in the early 90's as a producer of successful experimental music concerts during a time when very little experimental music was being produced in Los Angeles. As a composer, Moore is well grounded in the technological innovations of both the avant garde and academia, yet he has a way of utilizing these in contexts which are coherent and decidedly nonacademic. As a poet, his varied influences include existential philosophy, popular media, and beat poetry. At times he poses as a teller of stories, while other times as a declaimer of nonlinear meditations which drift in a stream of obliquely related themes. In recent years Moore has worked almost exclusively as a recording artist, producing Sons of Friction, Lives of the Saints, An Obscure Presence, and 13th Idiot Blessed. Lebenslüge was recorded in Venice, California, as usual.
